Is it possible to have US citizenship, and fly as a captain or first officer for UPS while being based and living at their base in Cologne? I've searched endlessly for the answer to this question, and cannot find anything.

Yeah...you could do it. I've heard of one guy that did it for a while. You aren't really "based" in CGN. You'd be based in Louisville and just choose to live in Germany. Some of our intra-Europe trips start with actual flights out of the US and others have deadheads to Europe and then you just operate intra-Europe. If you lived in Germany you'd want to bid trips that deadhead out of the US, then you'd just pick up the trip in CGN and fly out of their to the various places in our European system. I often fly a CGN-WAW-CGN trip and, if you are senior enough to get it, could easily live in Germany...in fact, it would make life pretty easy. Problem is, I don't know any German and I'd drink way too much beer...
