Well I've been in India now for just under a month flying a b200. Was wondering if there was anyone else on here flying in India?
Well to be an expat pilot here you have to be PIC so expect time in time and at least ATP mins. No MU-2's but plenty of King Airs, Hawkers, and the such. Trust me its a pain and if it wasn't for the pay I wouldn't be here but it pays way too well.What are the minimum times they are looking for right now? There are a lot of us that are unable to get out of CFI'ing into a decent job right now in the US and are looking international. What's about average for desirable in India?
Yea just like everywhere else, the airlines here are taking hits. I think Jet Airways bout a month ago way trying to lay off like 800 employees but the government stepped in and basically told them if they did that they wouldn't beable to use their airport etc etc. So laying off the expats I assume is the only way they could cut jobs without getting it from the government. The coperate side is much better right now. My company prefers expat pilots and owns all of their fleet so I'm hoping to be better off. Whos knows anymore in this industry.Just read somewhere Jet Airways just dismissed 200 expat pilots (some of them Captains). I guess they don't furlough by seniority!
Hey hey Louie! Hows it going? Yea when I get back over state side might try castle out for a bit on the King Air. Still a party 24/7 over there?Logsdon dog! How are you man? Hope all is well with all the news going on, but I get word about you from Mikey dog so I heard you were ok. Come back to fly our King Air and lets go to Laha!
