Opportunity in USA

Recommended Posts

Dear Members,

I am very sure you guys are all seeing many pilot vacancies almost every day on different sites in States. Seems like there is bigger shortage of pilot on its way there.

I am travelling to states next month for a vacation. Holding my FAA license since few year. Planning to meet few employers there just to see their response about a job offer. I would truly appreciate it, if someone’s can share their experience how did it go ? What usually they would like to hear or to expect ? Or anyother advise. And how hard is to get a work visa ? Looking your replies.

Thanks.

Do not even THINK of mentioning to the CBP that you are "looking" for employment, you'll get an automatic 5 year ban... There are a few websites you can search for that do help with the Visa or even green card applications, but in general you need a job offer to get a visa, and the employer has to prove you are the only one that can actually do the job. So getting a visa is very difficult. 

The green card option could be easier, but depending on where you are from. If you are Canadian, it is tougher than say Scandinavian for some reason. And Pilots are not considered "Skilled Workers" in most situations, so the visa process is tough...

 

But visit various companies and ask, the worst they can say is no.

Went through that about 8yrs ago when I got my FAA for an overseas gig.  **** near impossible unless you have an extremely unique skill set.

US Aviation protects it's industry.
