Getting the rights to live and work in the UK is very hard. Much harder then getting into BA, where 30,000 people apply for 150 places.

Hey Haree,

I have a friend who is Indian and it training to be a pilot. he says he's looking at Canada, nepal and Sri Lanka. Also doesn't Singapore Airlines have some special thing for Indian citizens?

Do you want to be a pilot or ATC? have you made up your mind?

got the last post wrong. I thought you had mentioned being interested in ATC but that was someone else.

Hey shon

Where did u learn that SIA has a consideration for Indians???

As for your friend let him look in Canada 1st choice.Sri lankan airlines are a bit down and their fleet is too small to accomodate more pilots (Based on a article i read).

Nepal is a good neighbour but after a few incidents like the hijack and the royal assasination the chances are holding back...

Anyway keep in touch

I heard about SIA just talking around and through discussion groups. They have a few Indian pilots flying for them. However I think you have to give up your Indian citizenship and become a citizen of Singapore and also you sign a bond to the company for a commitment of some no of years.Similarly you can check out Malaysia and Phillipines.

From what I hear once the asian governments open up their skies and markets a little more aviation will start booming. Most of my friends say in Asia it is a very political scene and its who you know that gets you the job.

Have you started working on your pilots license as yet?

haree,

If you are a software engineer student than you would have good chances to get a relatively easy (though long) immigration into the USA through your profession. I would consider that option as well. Flying for a US carrier might be just as nice of a dream than flying for BA... just a thought...
