What are the job prospects for privately funded cadet pilots in Malaysia?
Written by Capt Lim   
Tuesday, 03 June 2008 12:08

Hi Captain Lim,

Thanks for your useful website.

My name is Hanis and I'm from Ampang, Selangor. I have two questions about the pilots' job prospects. I am a private student at APFT (Asian Pacific Flight Training).

My first question - is it true that fresh private students will find it hard to apply for jobs in Malaysia because there are 7 flying academies in the country and just 3 companies - AirAsia, Malaysia Airlines and Firefly to provide pilot jobs?

Secondly, must we have flying experiences if we want to work overseas?

Regards,

Hanis

 
What do you think of my plan to be a budget airline pilot?

Dear Sir,

I wish to show my gratitude to you for your passion in maintaining this informative website for the future pilots.  For this, I can be ascertained that you are a good mentor and advisor to your junior pilots.

I have studied through the salary scale that the website published.  I realized that Jetstar Asia pay scale is not included.  May I ask if this information can be included as part of the reference?  Along with this question, may I also ask if it is true that budget airlines do not pay as well as major airlines such as Silkair?  And that budget airlines do not pay bonus to their pilots, since they are still in the process of breaking-even?

 
Why the plane often pitches up or down during the ILS approach?

Hi There,

I am a frequent FS user ever since FS4, now got FS 2004 and did not graduate to X yet. A quick question...

When on approach hold flying the glide slope and disconnecting autopilot for manual land, the aircraft often pitches up or down - usually down, sometimes significantly, sometimes just slightly. Obviously I need to correct the pitch manually to keep on the glide slope. Strangely, sometimes, after disconnecting AP, the aircraft stays exactly on the glide slope, without pitching. Is there any trick to this, perhaps the way the autopilot is connected initially?

 
What can an airline pilot do if he is medically grounded?
Written by Capt Lim

Hello Captain Lim,

I have this question that bugs me when I think about my future.

I am thinking... if let's say, I'm now an airline pilot but due to medical reason, I have no choice but to quit my job as a pilot. Say by that time, I would be 40 years old. What can I do?

And let's say, I have a mechanical engineering degree. By the time I am 40 years old, I would definitely not be competitive enough to compete with fresh graduates - hence decreasing my chance to secure a job. Does that mean that I can then do nothing?

In brief, what are the alternatives for pilots who are forced to quit their job due to medical reasons? What are the chances of them getting a new job? (since their working experiences are only limited to the cockpit.)

I really need to know the answer of this question as it has a lot to do with my future.

I would appreciate it if you can enlighten me on this...

Thanks a lot.

Regards,

Yee Shiuan

 
Is it better to sit in the front or back of the plane for a smoother ride?

Dear Captain Lim,

I have to tell you that your web site is so great and it helps many people.

I have one question for you. Is it better to sit in the front or back of the plane for a smoother ride?

Thanks again on a great site.

Best of luck to you

Jim
