That visa looks like the one you'd need for a holiday or if you were traveling on business.

Getting a work visa is a completely different animal. I'd speculate that it's almost impossible that a local airline would sponsor you unless the experience you had was in very short supply (turboprop driver type experience)

Default IFR Twin Piston PILOT

Who are we looking for?
This is not a job, itís an adventure. You need to have IFR rating, and twin piston licence issued by EASA with a solid flying experience. Previous military experience really appreciated.
The plane crew is composed by the planeís pilot (Fabien), his girlfriend who advise on social media marketing, and a photographer/video maker.
You will be able to log for all IFR flights when youíll be PIC, and will share VFR flights with Fabien.
There is no remuneration for this opportunity, but all transportation are covered by the plane operator.
You need to be easy going, have a curious appetite for travelling, and able to adapt effortlessly to change of plans.
Finally, youíll need to be available from OCTOBER 2019 for up to 6 to 9 months and have the ability to obtain visas for all the countries weíll be visiting (currently: Australia, New-Zealand, Indonesia, South-East Asia, Burma, India, Sri-Lanka, Oman, Israel, Lebanon, Turkey, and all EU countries).


What is the #FORTHISFORTHAT project?
The project consists of flying a P.68 Observer from Australia to London following backpackersí routes and connecting with people along the way. We are expecting to cover 40í000km flying the plane.
The plane is owned and operated by www.skypacking.social and is currently being specially equipped for this very special adventure in Sydney, Australia.
The main pilot of the plane is Fabien, a French entrepreneur who will be presenting the related YouTube show. Travelling low by light plane will allow for amazing images to be shot and will result in the production of a weekly vlog show on youtube.com/forthisforthat that will focus on exploring the motivation behind individuals decisions in life.
Why do you this for, why do you that for?
The plane does not have a fixed itinerary but instead, decisions will be made based on people meet during the journey, suggestions from locals and followers/subscribers, and of course the weather.

How to apply?
Send your CV to [email protected] with ĎGUEST PILOT 2019í and include links to your social media accounts.

Default Time required

Let me start by saying I'm super junior to all of this. So much so I'm still under Army contract. That being said...

The wife and I are looking at making Australia our home after my Army
career. The plan for now is to UQR, get hired with a regional, bank some 121 time, apply to Australian companies. I understand they do SO positions but no military type RTP like US carriers.

I considered applying for an SO position right off, but I want some 121 time as a fallback.

My question is, will I need to bank 1000 to 1500 hours of time as a captain (PIC) in a regional in the US before I apply or will I be competitive with 1000 to 1500 hours of SIC and 2000 of military rotary?

How do you plan on having the right to work in Australia? Do you have residency or citizenship there yet?

Airline jobs in Australia are far more competitive than the USA.

Assuming you have a CASA license with type rating holder, youíll be competing with Aussies with similar type rating. The challenge youíll face is earring the right to work in Australia.

With that being said, without trying to discourage you, is the 1,000 to 1,500 and US military time needs to be addressed after you obtain the right to work along with Aussie Airmen Credentials.

In any event... best of luck with your endeavours.

Way more competitive and out of the two majors youíd only really want to work for Qantas, over the long term.

Back to the competitive part, most people applying for SO jobs would have at least 3-5000 hrs including command time on turbo props.

The grass looks greener but I can say itís definitely not. Australian aviation is extremely anal and quite a painful place to work. Night and day to the US.

Yah and the pay sucks in Australia and the contracts nowhere near as strong or no soft pay when comparing Qantas/Virgin to legacy US carriers.

Iím originally from Australia and decided to stay here in the USA because the opportunity and lifestyle (money goes a lot further here) was far better.

Australia has better beaches and surf, and the healthcare system is managed better. Thatís about it.

Agreed. Feel much the same. I do wish I could raise my kids back in Oz but potentially better off staying stateside.
