Eh? Then how would cargo get more pilots in future if they've stopped taking in cadets? I know that cargo is now separate from the main fleet, and 744 pilots from the main fleet can longer fly the 744s from cargo and vice versa, as it was in the past.RaMz wrote:SIA cargo is now independant and they do not receive new batch of cadets already. i was told that they have been made a separate department for now. those who were previously trained under cargo have all done their conversion into the main fleet, flying the 777 and some on the 747. a genuine source from a person who went through it.
And please explain the part where you say that those previously trained under cargo have done their conversion into the main fleet. Who are these people? Captains? First Officers? I know several first and 2nd officers who are still with cargo and there's no indication that they're joining the main fleet. You also mentioned that some have joined the 744 main fleet, which is rather strange since that fleet is winding down and the pilots there are already having trouble getting enough flights to remain current.
Could you please provide more details?
Lastly, hiring has always been done by the different departments. So no change there.
