Wings wont take you without hours. Those jobs are for locals.

Your kinda out of luck without hours on type, most of these "expat" jobs are for Captains only, Wings being an exception.. but the FO must have 500 hours on type, the agency dealing with Wings is Rishworth.

Infact if memory serves me right Rishworth were very specific in that the 500 hours must be on ATR 72-212A no other varient was acceptable.

Hi mate,

Take a look at the website below. Blue Islands based in the Channel Islands are recruiting for FO's which are type rated but it doesn't say anything about hours. Worth sending them your CV though. Hope it helps!!!

Don't expect to earn a lot; this is central Europe, not the sandpit. Cracking place, Poland, though!

wings air and Skywest Aviation

Are they still looking for pilots on the ATR??

Last time i contact them they email me from a brooker in India telling me that theyd rather employ me as a captain on the B737 after paying myself the Type rating. Im not interested in that but Id consider an offer flying the ATR.

Any news about skywest Aviation, I heard that they are looking for ATR pilots as well but Im not sure about.

Thank you for the info.

if the original author is still searching for a job, Farnair may be a possibility. Although they seem to be geared very much towards p2f ...
