Overseas Aviation Jobs…
Despite recurring recessions and bad economies, overseas aviation jobs had always been available. These jobs are not only for pilots but for also for aircraft mechanics and avionics specialists as well. When mass pilot layoffs were happening in the US because of airline mergers or bankruptcies there were always openings for international aviation jobs somewhere in the world. Most of these flying jobs are not your basic run-of-the-mill minimum pay grade either; a lot of them pay better salaries than US regional or even some major airlines with great benefits.
For those with the high flying time and type ratings, getting these jobs should be a piece of cake. It’s just a matter of having the resources in finding these overseas aviation jobs, and of course your willingness to get out of your comfort zone. In the past years I had the occasion of being told about available international aviation jobs where I was qualified and had a good chance of being hired. I stopped flying professionally when I immigrated to the US in late 1983. At that time there were no flying jobs available here in the US as the economy was in a recession. Many airlines folded up or were retrenching so I couldn’t get a pilot job. I did try and applied at several domestic carriers and got rejected by all of them. I wasn’t even able to get an interview. But I did go out to get my FAA ATP certificate and kept it current “just in case”.
Back then, I had no way of knowing that somewhere around the world these lucrative overseas pilot jobs were available. I was running out of money after being jobless for several months, and with a wife and 2 kids to feed I had to do something. Less than a year after I arrived I was able to open up a business that skyrocketed in a very short time. Because my business took off, I had no reason to go back to a flying job. A few times I had knowledge that these overseas aviation jobs were available but I could not leave my business. If I was looking for a flying job then I wouldn’t have passed up on these opportunities.
For someone who is out of work though, this is a different situation. I’ve read many articles about pilots never finding a flying job, pilots losing their jobs, pilots getting crappy and low paying jobs, and all these negative things. But I just wonder how hard they really tried. I’m not judging anyone but it’s just a thought that I have. Maybe they just looked for flying jobs that are close to home. Maybe they wanted flying jobs where they feel comfortable and safe. I can tell you that most of these places that offer these overseas aviation jobs are as safe as anywhere else, maybe even safer than your neighborhood.
Of course I’m not talking about Syria or other places where there is an ongoing war. Talk about going to Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, China, Japan, Dubai, Bahrain, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and some places in Africa. Many of these are what you would call in the US “exotic” that a majority of the people only dream of visiting. Think about living it there. In the unlikely event that the place where you are based is not secure, the employers take extra measures to ensure the safety of their staff.
