SA Pilot looking for an opportunity

#1 Post by Jaco77 » Sun Jun 24, 2018 5:19 am

Good Day to All

I hope i can get some clarity and help

I am a South African citizen looking for an opportunity in Canada.
My Family currently lives in Canada and i am the only one still left in South Africa.
My passion is aviation and flying.

I have the following qualifications
SACAA Multi engine IF CPL with credits in all SA ATPL exams
Flight Instructor GradeII

I currently have 1150 total hours of which mostly is on single engine piston.
I have a total of 780 hours of instruction on most SEP

I am willing to wash aircraft and sweep the Hangar for an opportunity to fly in canada, as i can understand i need to do a coversion to TCAA which i am willing to fund and to get myself in Canada.
I am looking for any company or organization which are willing to help me with works visas etc in Canada

I am very hard working and willing to basically do any kind of Job to get me flying at tge end.

Anyones help will be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards
Jaco Joubert

Contact Buffalo Air and tell them what you said here. Not sure how the visa thing will work though.

Or north wright aviation.

Either ways, it’s next to impossible to get a working visa as a pilot.we have plenty of pilots (not really, but immigration will be the last person you would expect to admit the pilot shortage)

Your best bet, find another avenue to make the move / immigrate to Canada. Once you get here, work a job as you do your conversion and such, and then try and find a spot to fly at. Also, you would want to start getting those multi engine hours up while you still can.

Most employers obviously prefer Canadian Residents (PR) or citizens over anyone else (that is the law here, and we are going to keep it that way)

Good luck

I was sarcastic. We have plenty. But a lot of them not overly experienced.
