Photo printing shops offer printing services too. I always go to the kodak photo printing shop near my house to ask them to help me print my documents.

Re: Want to be an airline pilot

I am currently a malaysian citizen with Australian PR. I work in the medical industry.

I am 33, single and always have been a dream of mine that one day I can become a commercial airline pilot.

Can anyone help me for some advice on the following.
To be fully qualified as an airline pilot.

1. How much would the course cost; duration of the course and where are the best place to apply.
2. Average entry salary for a trainee airline pilot
3. Does SIA employ pilots with commercial qualification from other parts of SE Asia. I believe the course can be expensive and there maybe some cheaper alternative in flying courses.
4. Competitiveness and demands in the industry.

That's all I need for now to get started.

cheers


Well... for one thing it would help to be observant if you want to be a commercial pilot. This is a cabin crew thread. There is already a pilot thread, one for SIA, or you could have opened a new pilot thread.

Why in the world would you post questions in the cabin crew thread, especially after reading 500 pages of questions completely irrelevant to being a pilot? -2

Interview!

Postby cheerypumpkin » Thu, 06 May 2010 11:21 pm

Hihi,

I have a few questions regarding the interview, hope someone can help me ans them before the interview this sat!!

1) Is it ok to wear jeans? I mean of coz not t-shirt and jeans but like a formal top and jean and heels. would it be ok?

2) is wearing fake lashes appropriate?

3) the 2nd stage of skin checking, is it very scrutiny like those pores or black heads on ur nose is deemed bad skin?

4) I dont usually put foundation, jus concealer.. would that deduct points greatly?

Kinda new, not too sure what to expect..Hope you guys can give me some help here. Thanx!

1) Wearing jeans would be inappropriate, I've been to many SIA interviews and rarely see people in jeans (besides, it's hard to pull off the jeans/formal look.) If you're not a blazer/pants person, how about a simple LBD (little black dress or something along that line) which at least makes you look sharper.

2) Fake eyelashes are worn by SIA stewardesses, but keep them simple (and most importantly, natural!) You want the lashes to complement your features harmoniously, not looking like a drag queen.

3) I'd advise you using pore-pack/nose mask tonight, and sleep early. It will be too late for a facial now. Anyways, blackheads aren't something a good foundation can't cover.

4) For girls, it would be best to use a lightweight foundation just for formality (and a good blush at that!) There are a bunch of lucky ones who have a natural glow to their complexion, but more often than not, makeup does help in your interview.

Don't be too uptight, read through the forum if you have the time today. Most of your questions (and some that you didn't think about) should be answered after reading. Good luck!

Hi there!

Thank you so much for your info!!

O dear.. coz i dont usually wear formal clothes and I ahv this really nice formal top which i dont know to match it with wad! >.< die..

I'm not sure about pore pack coz i heard it makes the pores even bigger and i've nv use it before..i'm not sure if i'l be able to handle any mishaps if it happens! my skin quite sensitive thts why..

My skin is not exactly very bad tht needs a lot of coverage..so a light foundation like BB cream suffice?

O one more thing! I kinda hav a lot of baby hair ard my fringe area, i shld gel it up with a ponytail right..

Ps sorry i have so many silly questions. *apprehensive*

Thank you for your reply!! :)

BB Cream should suffice, coupled with some good concealing. Oh and baby hair? Just use some Lucidol wax to tuck them in lah, should work.

it depends on the crowd and each round takes different period of time. no specific time period. for example the first round may take 20-30 minutes while management round will take about 45-50 mins.
