Does anyone have any insight or info as to whether or not NETJETS Europe would hire an American pilot (or any UK/Europe carrier)? My girl friend is a UK citizen, and I'm retiring from the USAF in 1 year. Thanks

short answer not right now. you do not have the right to work in any EU country and you do not have the JAAR licenses either. if you convert your licenses to JAAR( expensive and time consuming,bu), marry your girlfriend and network a lot (who you know is as important or more there than here) then you have a shot.
If you are serious about it you have 1 year to go start networking ( I'm assuming you are based over there), studying and taking the tests for the conversion for an engagement ring.

good luck

You need an EU passport. The right to live and work in Europe won't suffice (which a spouse of a European would have). The EU passport requirement is listed on their website and I've confirmed it via email with their HR staff. Congrats on your upcoming retirement and good luck!

Have you a grandparent born in Ireland perhaps? Google "Irish citizenship by descent"

Are you in Germany or the UK? I'll be at RMS on the 8th if you want to talk about this. I was in the same position?
