JAA/EASA?

Excuse my ignorance. I am finishing my commercial and starting my CFI this month. One of my life goals is to fly in Europe. I am aware there is a considerable amount of additional training. I have heard it can tack on an extra 50K to obtain a "european" license. Some even sign a multi year contract working oil and those companies will pay for your euro conversion. ..?

I read the JAA was disbanded in June. The new system is called EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency). Does anyone have any up to date info on how to obtain a euro license? Will my license and ratings convert?

I am a "robbie" with 200 hours and a Comm Instrument. I will be (God willing) a CFII with 1000 +or- in under 2 years. What will I need to fly an entry level turbine gig in Europe? Thanks in advance for your responses!

First of all and most important, you need to be eligible to work in Europe. If you think US pilots are hard on foreign pilots, you should see the Europeans.

 

 

CHC helicopters hired americans for their North Sea operations (visa's)..or just go over and marry an european laidy (European greencard).

I did and she is a pilot but we moved back to the states and now she has her American citizenship.

At least we have a place to stay when we visit.

I just did the same...but just the other way around.

 

If you want to get hired by those north sea companies you are better of getting your jaa atp. I just talked to bristow about the faa-jaa conversion. Pm me if you want to get some tipps to save money during the conversion.
