Jandakot: This is where you fly the single prop and twin eng. Learning curve is steep, pretty stressful environment, altho most of your time is spent on the ground. But you get to fly solo! Woohoo!mambojr wrote:2. Hows is the training like over there in terms of tempo and learning curve?
Spot on Plavt, I concur this is the case usually in UK/EUR/AUS/USA. The ONLY exception is if you are tech crew with extensive command (i.e. captain hours) but given the OP was a starter then I agree.Plavt wrote:Very interesting mantaro43 and thank you for the clarification.
You may be interested to know for comparisons sake; in the UK over 26 usually means you are finished for being a pilot. (I should admit I haven't looked for a long time but I doubt if it has changed much).
haha.. i totally agree from yr point of view. i'm in the marine industry for the last 6 years and thought why not a switch to a totally different job. been wanted to fly since young but due to myopia it has been a hinderance. since SIA offered a minimum age requirement and that coincide with my path of road now, i guess why not the switch. i can always go back to the marine industry if i'm unable to fly in the end. well.. thats my point of view. haha..sierra2469alpha wrote:Mambojr - switch from engineering? Are you a qualified L.A.M.E? I'd stay - better pay and conditions full stop for many these days of tech crew - esp. in AUS and the US. Not sure about Asia though - HTH - P
