I got contacted by ACASS Canada about a corporate flight crew position with an Indian company. I would be based out of Delhi and would be given accommodations by the company while at home base. There is no commuting and I would be there on a 12-month contract. I am employed now but the pay difference is quite substantial and I could save some $$$ over the life of the contract. However, I am married (no kids and wife is crazy enough to do this) and I am unsure about the overall lifestyle, flying, and of course the people involved. Does anyone have any corporate flight experience over there? Or dealt with ACASS before? --Thanks--

Sounds like fun. Why not go for it? If I had that opportunity, I'd probably jump at the chance. Its only a year right?

I've been flying in India here for a little bit over a half a year. Shoot me an email or post whatever questions you may have. It is totally different here. Delhi is pretty nice and all so its a decent base. FYI, the DGCA is halting all FATA's after May 31st, so you may have some trouble coming over here. I would ask about that before you quit your job. Our company has had issues getting pilots over here lately. What will you be flying?

How did you get in contact with jobs in India. I've been looking and can't seem to get a hold of anyone?
