United States flight student inquiring about SIA flight deck

Postby FLsurfing » Thu, 03 Jun 2010 9:11 pm

Hello,

I am a flight student and college student entering my third year at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University studying Aeronautical Science with a minor in meteorology. I will be wrapping up my Multi engine commercial rating soon and will begin working on my CFI.

My main question is what should I be doing right now to put myself in a position to be a good candidate to become a flight deck crew member for SIA?

If you have extra time these are some other questions.

Would the airline prefer if I worked within in the United States at a regional airline to build hours or do they have a subsidiary airline that acts as a transition to the major carrier?

Are there additional skills the airline looks for on an outstanding resume, such as foreign languages, if so which ones?

How advantageous would it be to continue to grad school to earn a masters in Aeronautical Science?

Thanks in advance for any help.

I don't think you will have any opportunity to work for SIA unless you are a commander with several years experience, at least that's how it was last time I looked. Foreign languages are not so important to pilots since the international language of air traffic control is English. This is the only link I can find for the time being.
