Anyone know anything about the European Airlines? I also got German citizenship so I wouldn't have to get a working permit there.

Would love to help since I have a few German contacts but you need to be way more specific.

I think they all require jaa unless it's N registration

Not true, although it may soon be the case. Countries that i can immediately think of that still fly on their national (ICAO) license in Europe are I believe, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, maybe Poland there are others I just don't know them. They will of course accept a JAA license.

I know I need more certification, but have no idea what there called or where to go to get them. How are working conditions there? Do they pay better than US Airlines?

German Regionals: Euro Wings, Contact Air, Lufthansa Cityliner, Cirrus Airlines

LCC's: Ryan Air, German Wings, Air Berlin, Tui Fly (aka Hapag Lloyd, aka Tui, aka Hapag Lloyd Express), Hamburg International

And who can forget Lufthansa the magnificant

For all of the above you need the JAA ratings and be able to read, write, and speak German.

Also take a look at NetJets Europe as you only have to speak English, although knowing two or more languages is desirable. FO starts out at 56,000 Euro and you only have to live within one hour of Frankfurt, Munich, Stuttgart, Koln, Hamburg, Berlin, and Dusseldorf (I may have missed one or two airports but that is a good deal).

My wife is German and she hits me up regularly about flying jobs in Germany, so I've been looking.

Thank you. I was born and raised in Germany so I can read, write and speak German very good. That's one of the reasons I'm thinking of going back there.

Has anyone tried to convert from faa to jaa license using the criteria of having more than 1,500 hours as PIC in an aircraft over 30,000 kilograms (roughly 66,000 lbs). Supposedly you can convert automatically pending applications and jaa country approval.

you can do that but.....you are restricted on flying G register aircraft. Also if you have 500h on a multi crew jet, you can just go and do the written tests (all 14) but your flight test MUST be on the type of aircraft you have on your ATP licence.

Startlifter not anymore for these countries you had mentioned.Especially, after the mourn. My relative flies in germany, and he is doing great. One must speak perfect German, but actually, they can turn down your german language abilities to some certain extent. They called me if I am interested in flying with them, and I said not really then I would need to take their tests and etc,,, and I really like helicopters and I asked if they can take an older capt a married one from Jal, I met at the airport then he could actually fly but then again in my case I got scared of my heart condition. I explained it all in a very reliable way, and left for London. You can have two citizenships I have Afr and Eu one. I said that I just got back from a base visiting my friends at. One may not have a criminal record like stealing abroad. One of a person is at two criminal departments, but my neighbor from US embassy said that despite that a person is no longer allowed to come to Asia he will be checked by our US authorities as well for other reasons..Of course having loverins around and stealing with them.Unbelievable. I mentioned it to my uncle at BA.I had an impression that they are scared of US and UK. They must be. My uncle's wife is also German and my sister in law dad is also German an arist. At current, they are purchasing the new boeigns like German does at dad's country, but we are taking Dominican with us I told an aunt responsible for it Germans flying at new boeings still a history???? . Yes, he has great information only he does not understand that a role of a waiter at BA and strikes is a different one.

I just finished the conversion process last month. The option for 1500 hours PIC on more than 30,000 kg is no longer done as of 8 April. Reference LASORS 2010 G 1.5

Doing the exams is a long and expensive process.

cost me approx 15000 and 9 months dedicated full time to the conversion
