The first two there are your only option as a Kiwi, You wont get Australian citizenship through marriage so that option doesn't exist.

Try the lottery. Plenty of us have won it already. NZ nationals have a better chance than Australians. Entries open in October and draw in May.

Anyone had recent direct contact with GoJet Airlines revealing their current E3 hiring status (if any) ? This ad was on the AFAP jobs list about a year and a half back:

Got a bite from Piedmont. Does anyone know if there is any possibility of a commuting type of roster? ie take the min. guaranteed days-off consecutively, back-to-back combined with the annual leave to give enough time to commute to Australia? Yes I know I may be dreaming...

You likely know this but I'll state it for the record: SENIORITY IS EVERYTHING !!! It controls every minute of one's life as an airline pilot. Every frikkin' minute.

As a new hire with minimal seniority you will not be able to consistently produce the schedule you describe. Maybe one in a while ? Perhaps but it'd be an accident.

You basically answered your own question, especially with Piedmont.

still, go for it!

What's wrong with just living in the USA?

People commute from all over the country / world. I wouldn't try it at Peidmont though. You want a place where you'd be able ot hold more days off as your seniority increases.

The best thing anyone could ever do for themselves is not commute though. You'll probably strip several years off your life expectancy doing it from Australia.

MESA confirmed with me they are definitely not hiring Australians on E3 visas. I thought they were one of the ones that did previously?

Seems like its only Gojet and Commutair at the moment. Mesa did in the past and has E3s on their books, plus are recalling their E3 furloughees, but seems like they aren't taking new Aussies at the moment. Give it a few months. If things continue in this direction, I'd bet pretty good money that the majority of regionals will be taking E3s again next by July.

Just had a call from Piedmont. They are not taking E-3s either.

Does anyone know if the new 121 rules that Australian Airlines are transitioning to, are the same as or similar to the 121 rules that US airlines operate under? In particular, will 1000hrs under an Australian Airline operating under part 121 be credited towards the 1000hrs the US Airlines require for a Direct Entry command?

TIA
