Default PC-12 pilot needing to build hours

Hi,
I'm a PC-12 pilot flying in Europe (with the US citizenship and FAA licences) and was wondering if there were US operators likely to hire me as a PC-12 pilot for a few hundred hours.
I'm looking for an operator where you fly a lot, even in the coming winter months.
I'm trying to get as many multi-pilot turbine time (yes, even single engine T) before joining an airline in Europe for which I'm in the recruitment process. Too long to explain but the more hours, the better T&Cs.
I know I'd still need to go through a recruitment process, etc. I'm just wondering if you have operators in mind.
Thanks you!

Few places will be will to train you for "a few hundred hours" then have you leave....guess the agreement you have to leave after getting your hours makes it hard to say you left when an opportunity came your way....
simply put...under 135 or 91k training requirements make it doubtful thatsny places would...
However there are quite a few pc-12 that are operated by owner operators that need a hand or a safety pilot...but you are unlikely to build hours quickly.
My one suggestion is to find a photo/survey operator...they tend to fly pretty compressed seasons and might be happy with a 3-6 month commitment

The problem OP has is that for that said airline, the hours need to be multi-crew hours. So photo/survey stuff does not qualify. Neither does safety piloting a PC12.

The obvious bets are Tradewind or PlaneSense, and be prepared to break a training contract and pay ~US$10k or whatever when you walk. I get the impression TW flies more in the winter.
