yeah, statistically, about 20% of cadets get chopped, and from observation, most get terminated during the ground school phase and the Jandakot phase. Very few get terminated in the advanced stages. Lots of 'tests' that you have to go through right from the multitude of papers that you need to study...

Hi Redprada, just do your best and if you qualify for the JC - Uni route, go for it. There is quite a fair mix of unigraduates and poly graduates among pilots, coming from very varied academic backgrounds. It would be good to get into Youth Flying Club and get your hands on flying a plane. Once you'...

as yet, there are no female pilots in SIA, but there should be about 3 of them in Silkair, and there are 2 female cadet pilots in training right now. An ab-initio is someone who joins the pilot training programme without any flying experience (no PPL, CPL etc), and goes through the full training pro...

yeah as jencrs noted, according to the circular, the 744 fleet is indeed winding down. I've not heard about cargo cadets being offered to be transfered to main fleet, and my cargo cadet friends are still remaining status quo. We are given an opportunity to indicate our preference for Main fleet, car...

Re: Need some advices regards cadet pilot application

Since when did a cadet fly a 747? :shock: :roll: I mean,once the cadet becomes a F/O..(In this case I am referring to cadets employed by Singapore Airlines Cargo (SQC) ) Sorry :) Cadets operate on the learjet in Jandakot..Yes,they don't operate the 74...

I watched the episode on the crash of that flight on Aircrash Investigations, and there didnt seem to be any agreed conclusion as to the cause of the accident. The NTSB seemed very sure that it was a suicide based on certain evidence like the pulling of the circuit breakers of the CVR and Flight Dat...

yes there are female pilots in Silkair, and they are recruited alongside the normal batch of cadets (SIA/SIA CARGO), and they go through ground school as well as the training for CPL/IR together. In fact, there should be 1 right now undergoing training in Seletar. SIA/Silkair unfortunately dont seem...

if your wife is interested in continuing doing check-ins/departures etc, she could check with SATS which does the ground handling services for SIA. Depending on your wife's qualifications, there should be different posts available.

Hi M, passing rate for non flyers isn't very low.. typically half of the 2nd round interviewees get through to the medical stage, and for every course of about 20, about 5 will have previous flying experience. Anyway, go for the one that you are truly interested in, and not just try any one of it ou...

I'm a crew, but definitely i wouldnt want a steward as my boyfriend. I would prefer a guy with high flying career.. instead of someone heating meals, clearing trays & cleaning toilets in the aircraft, thou this is what i am doing now. Some guys join for awhile just to see the world & they will leav...

I've seen an abinitio cadet who joined when he was 33, but 35 would probably be stretching it. Nevertheless, if you are seriously decided on becoming a commercial pilot, SFC does accept private candidates (your age would be fine) who pay for their training through to getting a CPL/IR in Jandakot. Th...

yup the buffer period is needed... i believe it's 6mths? But, SIA also looks at your pre-Lasik degree. If it was too high (in the region of 600+) SIA may still reject. If however your eyesight is arnd 300deg or less, don't bother gg for LAsik bec this is still within the requirements. Lasik isn't so...
