bhall,

Can you reveal where you heard this ?

It may very well be correct but the NAC website requires US citizens or green card holders. Since these carriers don't properly advertise whom they're willing to hire, it's hard to tell what they're up to.

A number of Australians in class now with National and undertaking OE.

Some ex AJX - all have extensive wide body experience previously. Most also have substantial wide body jet command time so once they have 1000hrs part 121 they can be upgraded.

No previous regional jet E3 visa pilots being taken due to a number of them making dickheads of themselves during the recruiting and hiring process previously.

National are using an agent in Australia.

What did the regional E3 pilots do to embarrass themselves so badly and how come so many did this, seems a little strange!

I think it is generally the minority, but we have definitely had Australians over here who have acted in ways that have directly affected the hiring policies of airlines. We also get the occasional Austranaut coming in from an expat job, or the ones that forget that you can't just drop c-bombs whenever you like anymore, especially while in uniform or infront of passengers. Or going for jobs and getting all the way through the hiring process without disclosing that they need an E3. These are the minority but there are for sure those out there who are hell bent on embarrassing all of us.

Each LCA can include more than one position

Commutair will hire Australians with ATP mins on an E3 visa. Once you pass Capt upgrade training they will sponsor your green card. Getting the 1000 hours of US 121 time to upgrade will take a while as the training dept had a huge backlog of FOs.

Sensitive question, but is there any upper age limit ? In Australia 45 is the cutoff for a PR, so I guess there would be something similar.

A close friend just interviewed with National. Can confirm they are only taking people with previous narrow body or wide body jet command due to the 'austronaut d**head' factor.....

Under the circumstances, I seriously doubt it.

Completely inaccurate regarding "jet command". Have a very good friend starting shortly with no jet command at all. Solely RHS 737 time.

Yes they have applied for a number of LCA's, expecting some to come through shortly.
