Spain? How about across the channel in england?
You should know that the rest of the world for the most part holds different standards and testing for what we call A&P and do not have recripical agreements. So just because you are qualified in the States does not mean you are qualified elsewhere legally.
Spain is in the E.U. and the E.U has it's own AME tests and examinations and American cross overs are not permitted.
So how do you work in Spain as a U.S. A&P?
Research airlines and major maintenaince facilities that have work done overseas on their "N" numbered aircraft.
Aside from that here are a few links worth checking out. These are U.S. based contract services which from time to time have overseas contracts for U.S. A&P mechanics. Know this, like any other profession first you pay your dues before getting the gravy overseas jobs.
