10-19-2007, 11:21 PM
Hi guys and gals, I am trying to get some feedback about the USA aviation trend. I worked 14 years for TACA in C.A, currently Iím Cap on the A320 for Indian carrier. Iím earning $ 110.000 to 120.000 tax free annually and 90 days off per year. Not everything is about the money!!!!???? ;)I want a career, and not to be called an ex-pat! , I have scheduled interview with AAI. So here are my questions.
It is wise to leave your present job for the USA market?
I know most of you are educated group of pilots, where do you see the USA aviation heading?
I been flying international since I was 21, so for me I does make any difference if I do it again or not, I want a career no ex-pat catchphrases and numbers.
Any more info please feel free to chip in.
Best from India Jet320

The life of ex-pat is not a career is a one day to day basis, no roster, no family life, but good money nothing else..!!!!!!!!!!!! I rather have a career even in the USA than beeing a number
