Hi!!! I am soo soo sooo happy to find an active topic that i can ask questions! haha!!! :lol:

I realli noe nuttin about silkair so should my qns asked be too obvious, please bear with it. :)

I am interested in being a female pilot but i realise the inconviences that a lady may face being one; like not being able to go home often esp when i haf my own family! but jus now when i was browsing through this topic, i am so happy to see about going home everydae! haha!!!

so being a cabin crew/pilot for silkair, u get to come back to singapore everyday?

What is the average pay for a pilot in silkair?

I wish to fly in the sky but oso wan to go home everyday. Hope silkair allows mi to do so :lol:

Lets start with your question of going home everyday. Yes u will be practically home everyday, unless u fly the Indian flights, which will depart late evening, and bring u home early next morning at about 6am. So far, i have been only getting 1 or 2 of such flights per month. And FYI, we fly average 3.5 times a week, max of 100hrs/mth. If u do the maths, u will know that u will have lots of time idleing at home.

Reporting time for flights can be early in the morning like 6am if u are a captain, and (unofficailly) 5am if are still a 2nd officer. As mention, our lastest flight are usually those that depart for India at night.

BTW, u would have to put off starting a family, cos you are not suppose to get pregnant within your contract period i.e 7years from your appointment as 1st officer. If not, there are some penalties. So if u take into consideration that u have yet gone for an interview, so minimum, you are looking at 10 years from now, when u can start a family.

Average pay for pilots? I suggest u get throught the interview, ATPL exams, clear your solo and flight training before you starting thinking abt $. I feel it shouldn't be your main priority to be be a pilot. But i can say, its comfortable, and should place u at least in the top 20 percentile of the population. But once we are here, no one will feel that they ever earn enough rite ha ha
