GOL pilots in demand


GOL recently dismissed many pilots from the company. This came as a suprise since until recently people in Brazil were reporting about the shortage of pilots in Brazil. The lawmakers came close to changing the country's law to allow foreign pilots to fly in Brazilian companies. 

The large Brazilian aviation community website reported that other countries are working to recruit these pilots from GOL Airlines. See the report: Report. Pilots could earn up to R$25 000 a month, which is far more than they receive in Brazil, and have the benefit of have 15 off days per month, which is also a lot more than they receive in Brazil. One of the companies mentioned was Ethiopian Airlines. This seems to be an excellent opportunity for those pilots who feel undervalued by Brazilian airline companies.

For pilots to be able to fly in this foreign countries a good level of English is essential.
