Well, you don't indicate what country you're from so it's hard to answer your question.

You can email AW and ask.

And then report back here what you learned.

Envoy's latest trolling effort:

Envoy Offers Up to $45,000 Signing Bonus for Experienced Pilots

Other regionals are also looking for pilots with previous Part 121 experience. The closer applicants are to the 1000 hours Part 121 time, the faster they can be upgraded.

GoJet is even crediting years of service at a previous carrier to THEIR longevity for pay:

"Carry over longevity from another carrier at a rate of 1:1 (for example, a pilot with two years of longevity at another carrier would start at GoJet with two years of longevity)"


http://www.gojetairlines.com/careers...t-Careers.aspx

Skywest too:

Industry Experience Credit

"Have experience with an FAR Part 121 Carrier? Upgrade Your Career and get paid for your experience. Join SkyWest’s team of professional aviators and don’t worry about pay – we will start your pay at a year-for-year match! That means that every year you have worked at a FAR Part 121 carrier counts towards your compensation and benefits (up to a 10 year rate)."

EU Citizen... I doubt I’ll hear back anything positive without legal right to work in the USA.

plnplt,

Based on my observations, that's likely the case. Not sure what to recommend beyond contacting and asking. It's easy enough to do and we never know what's going on "behind the curtain".

Trans States Latest info. Bolded statement is sorta interesting:

“In addition to having one of the fastest Captain upgrades in the regional airline industry, Trans States provides a number of unique opportunities, including a Seniority Reservation Program that greatly reduces the likelihood of sitting reserve as a First Officer, and an Express Hire Program that allows current and qualified 121 pilots to forego the interview process. “



Trans States Airlines Rolls Out $44,000 Signing Bonus for Pilots

You knew the answer to your question!
Only Australians have it easy with the E-3 Visa.

A bit of a rhetorical issue but I'd still like to hear the back story on this rather bold statement from Alaska Air re Horizon pilot headhunting. I've not seen anything about it since its original appearance. If they'd done this, it'd certainly be newsworthy:

"He said Alaska Air is in discussion with “a major international airline” about a plan to have prospective pilots go overseas, “operating under different rules,” and build up their 1,500 flight hours flying for the foreign airline in a Bombardier Q300 turboprop, an earlier variant of the Q400, then returning to the U.S. to fly for Horizon."

Jetstar NZ?

Mind you, they can't attract pilots because they pay peanuts!

I'm going to guess the idea died on the vine. Just a bit too..."far out there".

If Horizon had sent a bunch of young pilots to NZ (or any other country), it couldn't be kept a secret.

The Horizon spokesman said they were "...in discussion with...". I'd like to know what foreign carrier would even entertain an idea like this.

I guess it could be somewhere in Australia or New Zealand, the link is broken by the way.

Not sure what happened with the link to the article. Maybe Horizon asked the newspaper to take it down ?

At the time it was published, it wasn't a particularly flattering (or hopeful) picture of Horizon's state of affairs.

They've since said recruiting is on schedule to normalcy...more or less...like most regionals. I figured it would.

Because it’s so much lower cost of living and taxes are near nothing!
