Posted a similar thread on the old board, but figured I may be better asking on here-

I've got an ATPL, 2000hrs, half of that twin - a mixed bag of SAR, Oil&Gas and instruction predominately.

Any tips on how someone would go about a switch to utility flying? I'm not necessarily looking at twins, or even turbines initially and I'm well aware of the pay differences - while I have been fortunate to do the types of flying that I have, my goal has always been utility and if I have to take several steps back down the ladder to achieve that then so be it.

The opportunities for utility flying are very limited and a relatively closed-shop where I am (north west Europe) so I'm looking at anywhere in the world, but bear in mind I'm a European citizen without a green card.

Appreciate any thoughts, including any amusing roastings Wink
