No such thing as "Frozen ATPL" in SA. It's a CPL with ATPL subject's.

Just advising so you don't put this on your CV.

Best of luck!

Thank you for your suggestion. Yes I know, But instructing is not my cup of tea. I would not get engaged on something which I am not good at.

If you are not keen on instructing, I would suggest checking out skydiving gigs or charters operators. Go knock on a few doors, find out who is looking and then do the necessary ratings, it's not fun but it's going to get you further than just sending out CV's.

Trust me I know, I went the charter route with barely over 200hrs. Have you seen any companies?

That is probably why you haven't found anything yet....
I might be wrong, and if I am I do apologise, but you sound way too picky with what you want. Unfortunately with your hours you don't have the luxury to choose what is convenient for you. You kind of need to take what is available.

Yes my Top choice is Cathay, but aren't they taking pilots with 250 hrs flying time?

I am in a similar position as you. I have 270 hours, frozen ATP, University degree and also a Beechcraft 1900 rating.

I am sending out CV's but haven't been getting the replies I'm hoping for. I am also considering the Cathay Pacific option, but there are certain aspects that make me think otherwise. The fact that they will keep you as a Second Officer for up to 4 years, being far away from friends and family for a whole year and the fact that you would have to integrate into a culture far different to what we know. It just isn't as lucrative for me at the moment, but it might be the only option in the future.

I would have to consider doing an Instructor's course to get a job, but I dont want to push my study loan beyond limits I can't afford to pay back. It is a tough ball-game at the moment, but I am sure everything will work out for the better. Hang in there !
