Cargo pilot oppurunities

Hi all!

I've been trying to comb through cargo-focused airlines around the world to see opportunities for low-hour pilots with them but most of their websites are just plain bad and getting to that information is a challenge so I thought I'd try asking here if anyone has any ideas or advice for cargo operators that would accept low-hour pilots, the general requirements and how to go about focusing on that sub-section

Appreciate any help!

Why do you want to be a cargo pilot? Yes - they are generally considered to be the crème de la crème, and Yes - they get all the girls, but they still occasionally have to work hard during those 23 weeks per year! 😉

If I am correct, ASL has hr requirements. Something like rated and around 1000 on type.

CargoAir no hr requirements, but I think rated. I got invited last winter. Didnt go as conditions were note that great comparing to other options I received.

DHL UK is not much hiring going on but when they hire, they do Hire low hr pilots.

Air Atlanta Icelandic is not only Cargo but also Pax usually from Jeddah. Very nice opportunity when you have 500 hrs TT.

I can tell you for a fact, that only the Irish AOC may have hour requirements. I don't know about the Hungarian and French AOC, but at the moment there is no requirement for the other AOC operations.

As for AAI, they have a lot of cargo flights out of Liège and Hahn and you can express your preference for those flights. They mainly fly to Africa.

Thanks! I've seen DHL openings but I was thinking of any chances outside of maybe the EU, as I don't have the right to work there

Well you just answered your question

Thank you all for your suggestions, I'll check if any of them are open for cadets from across the pond! Otherwise, I'd appreciate any hints about Asian cargo airlines
