Default B757 Landing currency

I'm newly retired from a major and I'm applying to other jobs but my landing currency went away today. Any ideas or suggestions on where to go for my 3 bounces--any reasonable flight schools to recommend? Thx REDWAVE

Have you tried Maxjet or EOS? You may not have to go to another country to find work, which is what I believe you alluded to in another post.

Honestly, if you have PIC time in a certain airframe, that company will generally not worry if you don't have 3 in 90.

If you do want to do expat work, I highly suggest searching any post typhoonpilot has posted on the subject. He is highly knowledgable and very, very helpful.

Quite a few guys I know have gone to Korean when their flying days are done in the U.S. They didn't particular like some of the conditions, but they all thought the money was pretty good. Unfoirtunately, I don't know if they give preference to 767 folks. In any case, there are quite a few websites that will point you to services that link airlines with possible candidates.

Respectfully,

Boeing Alteon, and Pan Am International Flight Training Academy offer a recency of experience and recurrent training courses where by you can accomplish the recency of experience simulator training in a Level C or D flight simulator with a qualified B757/767 instructor. The recency of experience comprises of 3 takeoffs and landings and a V1 cut. If you have circling approach waiver on your certificate, you can have the removed by taking performing the aforementioned along with a circling approach with an examiner.

But if you get on with EOS, you won't have to worry about the recency of experience since your reference month will be effective with your PC with them.

Are you looking for airplane currency (as in any airplane will do) or are you trying retain B757 currency? That could limit your options for sure.
