Cargo jobs anywhere?

Like most people here I am an unemployed 10,000 hour LHS 737 aerial ego.

I was flying in China but we know the story. If you had a few hours and wanted to fly freight where would you go thatís recruiting? Thanks

ASL Ireland are looking for 737 captains. Other carriers in the ASL group are also worth a try.

Good luck.

Try Cargolux Italia but I'm not sure if Italian is a requirement.

Preference will be given to pilots with valid rating. Applications from pilots without rating are accepted and considered, though.

As to the question in regards to "Time-to-Command": expect 10+ years, give or take......

I would have thought that anyone trying to predict 'time to command' anywhere right now would be in the same category as those 'fortune telling' by reading tea leaves.

Right now just a job surely has to be far, far more important than anything else?

Don't know why you're replying here, for us on the dark side of aviation it's lacking pilots, not worrying about upgrade times.
if you're underworked, you can greatly have any flight they offer me to take on my off days, sorry!

Amazon Air might build some new air base at Leipzig where their existing ground hub is already expanded? It looks like they just started to hire the specialists needed to build their own air ops over there. Not sure about pilots needed. This is more like at the very early stage and not advertised yet.

May this United Sky Cargo gig be somehow related to Air Cargo Global which went out of business only a few weeks ago?
