I'm just about to hit my ATP mins and have been wanting to get out of the states for awhile. I have about 400hrs in turbines. I wouldn't mind relocating to China, Japan, Vietnam, UAE, Africa, Caribbean... Pretty much anywhere as long as I'm flying. Ideally, I'd like to be in an ERJ/CRJ for a regional airline but I would not be opposed to flying charter/corporate. I'd appreciate any guidance on getting my butt out of the US and into the right seat.

Seriously, if I had more than 20yrs of flying in my future I’d get a seniority number with a US carrier and travel on vacation. If this is a second career and you have less than 20yrs ahead of you, you’ll get to six figures sooner and a good portion of it will be tax free. If you plan to fly in the US any time in the future, it doesn’t make sense to leave. You’ll regret it later. That being said check PPRUNE.

It's not what you think it is.

Be very cautious.

Care to elaborate?

Most foreign carriers do not accept expat FO’s. Without a type rating and time in type it will be difficult to find anything out of the US. There are cadet programs such as Cathay and Eva. These may be your best, or possibly only, options.

Copa hires non type rated FO's from outside of Panama if they have 1000 total time. Panamanian citizens only require 250 hours for the same position.
