Jangan tanya soalan merepek boleh tak?
If I remember correctly, the cut-off age for ab-initio pilots is now 31. 32 is too old to start. The first officers you see who are in their 40s either come from the air force, from another airline or have been first officers for several years. Many SIA pilots come from the airforce, but many don't make it as well. Ex-airforce SIA pilots have told me that they will not encourage their kids to join SIA by going through the airforce route.singaporegrrl wrote:Even if you wanna try for cabin crew, it's not possible coz you have not completed NS yet. 32 is not an old age for you to get into commercial. I've seen over 40s who are first officers. Many Singaporean pilots I know were from RSAF. I believe it would be a good step towards commercial.
It's now 25. The office just has to get approval from the air force, that's all. I believe it's not necessary if one's 26.maneo']Given the responsibility required, I don't think I would want anyone less than 32 flying a plane that I'm on.
Glad it's not too easy.[/quote]lol some of SIA's first officers (non-s'poreans) are in their early 20s. All go through the same training though, no matter how young or old they are.

It's FAR easier and FAR quicker to get to where you want thru SIA's cadet pilot course.futurepilot wrote:If i enrol myself into a self-sponsered pilot programme... Upon graduation, I will be so-called over-qualified for e position of cadet pilot and thus need to apply for positions as a 1st-officer instead in a national carrier right? Will it be tougher to get a career as a tech crew in this way(by paying your own education and license) or by going through their cadet pilot training scheme?
Not really.futurepilot wrote:Does possessing a driving license increases the chance of being selected?
