Hello Adam. I applied to HAL some time ago. How likely am I to be considered without having ties to the islands? I’m from Europe and got green card due to recent changes in law that allow pilots to apply for a small fee. I’m in my 30s with a couple thousand hours on 737 and a couple thousand on 787 with experience of medical flights, African bush and military. Haven’t heard back from HAL.

Chris,

Honestly I’m surprised you haven’t yet. My questions are do you have your FAA ATP and where was your flight time built as that might be the only hang up I can think of.

Adam

Hi Adam, I have FAA CPL but yes, my time was built flying for European carriers.

Chris,

That sir is why (I suspect) you haven’t gotten a call. If you visit the HAL FO recruiting page (Careers: First Officer | Hawaiian Airlines) it clearly states your must have an ATP. Further they really like mainland turbine experience.

If your goal is to fly for Hawaiian it may mean flying for a year or 2 at a Regional.

Adam

Chris,

Not to be difficult here, but I just looked at Hawaiian’s webpage and the first requirement is to have a FAA ATP, it is written as clearly as day. You will never get a call in your current position as you do not meet their qualifications. As a pilot, you should know that it is necessary to fully and completely read the entire checklist.
