What are my employment prospects after my CPL/IR from the flying school?

Hello Captain Lim,

I'm about to begin my CPL/IR course at MFA (Malaysian Flying Academy) this August.

1. What's next after my CPL/IR course?

2. Will any airline representatives come to MFA or other academy to recruit the most highly educated and top candidates? Will they be provided with further training afterwards?

I will truly appreciate your response.

Regards,

Hariz.
 
Dear Hariz,
 
As I have advised KK in the query below, flying jobs are getting hard to come by as airlines are closing their doors to private candidates. I was told that supply far exceeded demand in Malaysia and Singapore. So if you are not sponsored by any airlines, it is going to be very tough looking for a flying position.
 
Besides Singapore Airlines, (see here) Malaysia Airlines and Air Asia have not placed any new advertisements for cadet pilots. Perhaps they may do so in the near future.
 
Of course, if you are selected by the airlines, they would provide you with the full training and you have to sign a bond with them. That would not be an issue but the question is when they would open their doors again? No one can tell unless the economy improves and the global air travel picks up again.

What are the possibilities of failing cadet pilot training?
Hi Capt Lim,

I'm just another pilot wannabe living in Singapore. Honestly, I have failed my first interview due to being ill-prepared because it falls in my final year exams period a few months ago. I really hope to apply again hoping to be better prepared but im just wondering how high are the possibilities of failing even after being a cadet pilot or what kind of situation will make you fail the cadet pilot training? I may be thinking slightly far now considering i didnt even get through the interviews, but because I'm having a considerable well paid job to pay lots of my loans right now, I need to think carefully before i will further pursue my flying dream or to postpone it. Thanks in advance!!

Regards
Roland
