737 ng typed ... whats next?

hey all!

so i jus finished my type on the 737 ng on my FAA license. Not too high on time.. even though this is my third type rating :/ got the DGCA license current too but havent converted the 737 rating on that yet. What are the chances in the market? India or UAE ?

blue skies !

Maybe a 787 type? I'm sure the 4th one will be the charm.................

No, let's go by numbers. 747, 757, 767, 777, 787 I also have 737 type rating & that's what I'm planning for.

All right, so I will take the troll bait and bite and ask.
Which two type ratings did you get from your employer?

Try Lion Air in Indonesia, the regulations constantly change regarding expats but you may get lucky.

Whats next is nothing.

You made a idiotic decision. You could have applied those ten's of thousands of dollars to building time and experience, flying from small airport to airport to meet with Chief Pilots, and impress them at being serious.

Your choice of buying a type rating with ZERO.. and anything under 1500hrs is ZERO, and under 3000hrs basic flying, has led you here. Poor decision making. I wouldn't hire you.

Took me nearly 5000 of flying pistons and turboprops till someone put me thru a jet course.. I was young.. 28 or so. Years later, I get paid enormous amounts to fly very large jets globally. There is no short cute.

Everyone knows who you are and what you did the second they see your CV.
