Just for type rating is not expensive but if I need 500hrs, I need to save more money....

i noticed you you already A320 rated. Did you look for job in South East Asia or other region?
I did - and there are many hidden problems that I discovered. To start with, each Asian country has its list of favorite and restricted countries. My passport fell short and into the restricted list. Western Asian countries like Turkey don't entertain employment requests below 1000 on type..

Applied multiple times. Unfortunately they never respond to any queries.

Iíve been in contact with them a few times and theyíve replied promptly. They seem to have links or know of jobs with low or no time requirements. They offer the service to place you in that job with the necessary TR. I havenít moved forward with anything regarding Jet Line. It would be nice if we could get a comment from someone who has gone through the process.

Which airlines/countries did you apply to? Which country are you from? Which country is your license with?

Thank you for your reply

I am from Japan and I have JCAB and Canadian CPL with Multi-Instrument rating.

I felt your comment is mostly positive regarding JetLine Training so I thought it could be the one I should consider to have training.

My personal suggestion and that is all because I am not BABU British, lol that BS ended in 1947 and
I dont speak that pattrois.

your question was,

I am from Japan.

Jet training is the one I would like to ask: if they can offer advice regarding training.....

For your situation and experience (what I would like).

My question because I dont speak BABU, Why do you want to go there?

Since I obtained all required license, I have a difficulty finding a job.(I tried all airlines and small company here in Japan)
I also looked for job in oversea but in reality it is not feasible to do with my experience because airlines require 500 hrs on type or higher hours except local pilot nowadays in Asia and the most of other regions.

I am not flying and simply working at office for saving money for future investment(Type rating with Line Training).
I am away from flying for many years so I want to do something for chasing airline career.
That is a reason I am considering having training at JetLine Training.

I am in the same boat... err... aircraft. 13 months now since I've obtained my A320 rating and 13 months unemployed. I've been in contact with Jetline and am now strongly considering converting from ICAO to EASA and they seem to have all the information and have always answered my questions. My concern now is that if I push through with this, will I just be stuck in the same rut? Or are there actually airlines in EU (Im a EU Passport holder as well) that are willing to hire A320 + 0 hours on type? The guys from Jetline have reassured me that there are jobs for 0 hours, but then again that's simply taking someones word for it and its quite a large investment to convert to the European license.

The only demand in Asia for 0 hours on type seems to be Cadet Programs, for the right price of about 75k USD (Vietjet) or 80k USD (Lanmei) and that's simply not something I'm able to afford. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

I can't speak for other countries, but over here there have been some batches that have been immediately absorbed by AA/CP upon completing their TR. Its just not the best timing at the moment.

It is, and I don't have any sympathy for these P2Flyers if they loose their time and money.

well, I am at the same page with all of you guys and searching for information regarding cadet. to correct your comment 75K for Vietjet is what the company says, but they don't hire direct apply. you should contact agency and they ask extra 100K. that's how it works in SE Asia nowadays. and other airlines who doesn't ask that much for line training they also start to ask more and more.. so I can say P2F became common.
here is my question for you, if you have EU passport, why didn't you get the EASA license at the first stage? some of SEAsia companies seeking EASA license with A320 + 0 time coz they do WET lease to Europe.
also I've heard that in Europe, you can find leasing company so they can send aircraft with all set of crew.
I also considered to convert EASA but seems it takes a year and I will be stuck there...

Which country in SEA are you from? How old are you? Which airlines did you apply to?
Which European passport do you have? If itís the UK then you might want to think carefully is you get and EASA or CAA UK license.

I'm not from SEA. I am Korean holding FAA and ICAO. I considered EASA because it seems more opportunity than where I leave. but without residence, it doesn't have any merit for me so I decide not to do so. I write the reply because you said that you have EU passport, then you might have more chance than me with EASA license.
I can not open which airline I applied for coz I am not supposed to do but most of SEA airline has same concept and a lot of SCAM even direct from company..
If you thinking to work SEA send DM then I will tell you all I know.
