Got the same email - I think it was sent to everyone with an app in via Airline Apps

Has anyone heard of them taking Aussies post-COVID that didn't already have an FAA ATP?

Despite the optimism it looks like at this stage for E3s only those with ATP/ ATP written complete or had a prior CJO/contact with the airline pre-covid are being contacted for the interviews.

Very interested to hear if anyone's applications have progressed recently without any of the above.

Folks with ATP-CTP and ATP written but no ATP cert are also being contacted?

I have to remind all that United will be retiring 200 50 seat jets in the next two years. Gojet will likely retain all Crj 550ís. Commutair, Air Wisconsin, and Skywest will be the victims but it has yet to be determined who will bear the brunt. The hope is aviate will be able to absorb the pilots while at the same time encourage pilots to fill the need to staff commutair and air Wisconsin in the short term.

Yeah I haven't had any luck, other than PSA shooting me an email asking me to confirm flight hours and experience etc. Fingers crossed bit more luck soon.

Hey guys, been reading through the pages looking for the info I'm after and can't seem to find any concrete info on how to obtain a Visa as a Kiwi in to the US.

I've read somewhere that kiwis can apply for E1/E2 Visas but the airlines aren't considering them. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Would love to hear from any Kiwis in the US that made the move.

So far all I know is, greencard lottery, through marriage or E3 for Aussie nationals.

Cheers.
