Default Air India hiring ?

From a newsletter I receive. FYI

This is information for retired Delta pilots who might be interested in a 777 expatriate captain position with Air India. Air India is in the process of hiring 53 expatriate captains in this year (2009). They are taking delivery of 7 B777's this year. In addition they have 28 B787's on order.

The requirements are age 63 or less, B777 type rating, 100 hours PIC on the B777, having flown the aircraft in the last 7 years, and current (meaning a simulator PC in the last year, there are a couple options here).

The job pays $11,500 per month for a line captain and a little more for a check airman, instructor (TRI), or an examiner (TRE). The schedule is 3 weeks on 1 week off or 6 weeks on and two weeks off. You can be based in JFK, ORD, or possibly SFO (starting in August). There is a 12,000, 13,000, and 15,000 dollar bonus for staying with Air India for 1, 2, or 3 years respectively.

Myself (Scott Murray), Ray Bell, and Velibor Slavuj have started a company,Nightingale Aviation of North America to recruit for Air India. Ray and I primarily recruit 777 pilots in North America.

Just a little background:

Ray Bell, retired Delta Air Lines, line captain, check airman, current Air India B777 line captain, check airman, instructor, and examiner.

Scott Murray, retired Delta Air Lines, line captain, check airman, instructor, current Air India B777 line captain.

Velibor Slavuj, retired Yugoslav Airlines, line captain, director of operations, current Air India B737-800 line captain, check airman, instructor, and examiner.

We have a very strong presence in Bombay with Air India. One of our partners is in Bombay most of the time which gives us the ability to monitor the application process very closely.

If you have an interest in learning more about Air India or if you have a friend with another airline that might have an interest, feel free to contact me.
