Hello. I am a 550 hour commercial single engine pilot with instrument privileges. I was wondering if there are any Caribbean island hopper airlines that would hire low time guys?

1) Do you also have the 100 hrs Cross Country and 25 hrs night required for VFR 135 mins.?

2) Where are you located?

Send me a PM, I can get you contact info on a couple operations. There is a lot of opportunity here in the Caribbean.

Good evening, I am also a pilot here instructing in the Caribbean (from Barbados). I have Commercial Multi & Single with IR and CFI. I have 600hrs and I do have the mins you mentioned above and FAA licenses. Not to hijack the thread starter but is it possible I can shoot you a PM as well?

Hey man, check with Humming Bird on St Croix, Cleo at Ace Flight Center on St Thomas, and Air Sunshine based in PR/BVI. Those would be great options with your experience and existing island knowledge. I think all three are looking. Also, check some of the cargo ops out of San Juan....Flamingo, M&N, Air Cargo Carriers.

Thanks man appreciate the information. I guess in some of these territories you would need have American citizenship though. I don't have such, just the licenses.

Yea-Pretty much all the flying in the northern Antilles is under U.S. flag, so My guess is a non US pilot requires a green card. Can't be too hard to get. I know we have ramp workers that are from St. Kitts and Dominica who hold them. Other than St. Barts Commuter and Liat; not too familiar with down island operators.
