Are there any American Pilots out there who have flown , or presently flying for international carriers ? If so please let me know how you managed to do so, I posted a topic about job oppurtunities overseas a couple of days ago, but felt like it didnt really hit the spot. Thanks!

i have a good option for you... check out
or simply go to google and search for indigo, goair, air deccan or any indian airline for that matter . I am pretty sure on their employment oppertunities page.. you will have a diverse option of jobs.
I want every single airport and airplane in India to be on A.net!

HI KingAirMan. Overseas flying is a great option, if you don't mind relocating. Most oriental and indian airlines hire large numbers of expats, as does Emirates. Look around, you'll find plenty of info. Like Doug said, pprune.org will probably have more info on that than a.net. Also try flightinfo.com.

I appreciate all of your help. You all are very helpful, i just see more oppurtunity for pilots overseas, plus, pilots get a lot more respect . Im a passionate traveller , and to get paid to see the world while flying would be my ultimate goal. you can only go "so many places" with american carriers , especially before you get laid off :-/

Quoting Caboclo (Reply 3): Most oriental and indian airlines hire large numbers of expats
Indian carriers will probably continue hiring expat pilots for a few more years....until fresh Indian pilots start entering the market in large numbers, in response to the opportunities created by the recent surge in civil aviation out there.....

Quoting MCOflyer (Reply 4): Four American pilots went to Ethiad to fly the 773ER. Thats according to airways. I've heard of american pilots flying for BA, Ethiad, Emirates and others. I'm sure some fly for SQ and LH.
I was on an SQ flight from KL to SIN in June and we had an American captain. If you don't mind the ex-pat life, flying for SQ or EK etc is a great way to fly the world, and get paid pretty well compared to US carriers. (much lower or non-existant taxes in these bases)

Many of the non-Japanese pilots flying for Japanese carriers are actually contracted to the airline by a crew leasing company. One such company is based in Hawaii and recently had an ad looking for Q400 pilots for Air Nippon Network.
