Default Mins for International Airlines

Does anyone know if the Mins for airlines that fly into central America are lower? Like Aeromexico, or TACA airlines???

Before you get into times... are you a Mexican or Salvadorian National? If not you're wasting your time.

Default TACA mins..

1200 hrs TT, ICAO (El Salvador) Comm/Inst license and also FAA Comm/Inst ... besides you should know someone inside to take your resume or at least that's highly desired.
They haven't hired since Aug/04 the last that I've heard they won't hire for the rest of this year.
You also are supposed to spend 3 years min in the company or pay for your training ... almost 30k ... only base San Salvador... $ 1500/35 hrs min guaranteed, additional hour $ 45, Avg hours for a new hire 40-50, your salary won't change until upgrade, after that $ 4000/month... time to upgrade somewhere between 8-12 years, or a massive exodus of all the captains ...

Hope it helps.

cheers.

Aeromexico: You need to be a mexican national or legal to work in Mexico, with at least a Commercial ticket issued by the Mexican FAA. After that you need to affiliate with ASPA the union representing those guys. Before going to aeromexico you need to enter Aerolitoral the regional of aeromexico (there is a flowthrough to aeromexico) work there for 4 to 5 years flying EMB135 and then as the major needs pilots they are brought directly from the regional (no exams or any kind of hassles, direct entry).
There is a bid on the union to enter the airlines and as you can imagine, sons and daughters of Aeromexico pilots have the upper hand.
As far as flying time as long as you know the right people and have a commercial license with ME and instruments you are good.

The new low cost airlines Volaris, Interjet, Avolar, and soon to come: GOL Mexico and RyanMex they like pilots with previous part 121 experience (A320, B737 exp) and knowing somebody inside to recommend you.
Hope this helps

Is it required to pass through Aerolitoral to get into Aeromexico? I've talked with some guys who have done that and others whom I understood had not, but maybe that was just an assumption.

Have you cheked into Copa? I've heard rumors of Copa hiring. A few years ago they were looking for B737 captains from the US, but I'm don't know what their normal citizenship/residency requirements are.
