As a student pilot, my goal, as per my name, is to be on the 777's. Anyways, I am aiming to be an expat pilot at a company like Singapore Airlines. However, there are 2 camps of thought. The first says you get more benefits from working in your home country, while others say the pay is better as an overseas pilot. My home country is Canada by the way. The guys who work for Air Canada get a lot of benefits, while the Canadians overseas say they are better off working overseas (Emirates, Cathay Pacific, etc.....) Of course, I reckon this also has a lot to do with whether or not you have a family or not as well. As well, overseas you are likely not to be unionized which means you can lose your job at any time. Any opinions.
