Type rating and line training

Any trusted agent to do type rating and line training on the A320 for some one who donít have the right to live and work in EU with EASA license.
​​
I have been waiting for 3 years and getting older so I have no other way.

You wouldn't need the right to live and work in the EU to participate in a pay to fly scheme, as you wouldn't be working for the airline.
Forgetting about the rights and wrongs of such a scheme, you would need to do a'lot more than a type rating & line training for it to be worthwhile. Most operators require an absolute minimum of 500hrs on type for you to be considered already type rated.

I understand that I need at least 500 hours on type to be considered as a type-rated pilot. But, I can’t find a trusted agent feel like all are scams! Most of the programs require an EU passport like Eagle jet international

Any idea about those agents

Ignoring my own opinions on p2f for this answer.

Some operators wonít consider p2f hours; obviously the bottom end ACMI ones donít mind, but often they have their own p2f schemes and may have limited interest in a paid FO operating in a seat they can sellÖ

Without an EU passport May I ask what the point of an EASA licence and 500 hours on type?

May I know what is ACMI

The point of EASA license is that here in GCC they require EASA license to join them as a CPL holder without experience except KSA which requires FAA and Kuwait which accept only ( L3 Harris and FTE graduates). They accept any ICAO if you are experienced only

The point is not just getting the 500 hours as most of those p2f schemes have job contracts for specific years as they declare.

After that you can join major airlines once you are experienced having at least 1000 hours and more.

In this field the requirements changes every day and at the moment I am thinking only to start now

Seriously?

Honestly if you go p2f you will not get into major airlines. Pilots that have gone to Lion Air for example to get hours arenít even considered in many airlines. Even if you have 5000 hrs on 737. If you have gained hours at an airline like Lion Air your chances are 0. Major airlines donít just look at your hours. Many airlines love Ryanair trained pilots for a reason. The training is very good and will set you on a good path. Thatís why Qatar and Emirates hoover up Ryanair pilots.

I can’t join Ryanair as I mentioned I don’t have the right to live and work in Europe.

What else I can do if I can’t find an airline to take me as zero hours except my flag carrier airline which advertise the need of pilots every 7 years and they only take who have connections! Sit and watch time running !!

Why on earth arenít you applying to RYRÖ yes it is 30k but it has a decent 5/4 roster and UK based RHS for you as well as a salary at the end of your line training. Far FAR better value than paying to be a gear and flap operator.

Correct - and a number of other operators, including BACF are recruiting low hour pilots in the UK now with a bonded/paid for TR.
