There are many post about this school with comments from people but few if any people who have done their training with them.
Has anyone had any experience with this school?
Someone who has done the course with them, can give his opinion and advice?
Their program looks very good!

There are already many posts on this subject. I try to avoid people's recommendations about eaglejet from pprune though. So I contacted someone who knew someone doing the Lion Air program through EagleJet and that person told me honestly how it was.
I doubt you will get any unbiased opinions re those programs on here. Which is a shame really.

I had the luck to have a nice chat with an italian pilot who is in Indonesia currently. He said that it's pretty hard but at the end of the day some experience is gained and is not really that bad. Sure, it's hard and every month he flyes more than 100 hours, but he is happy for now.
Heard nice words about Susi Air too.
Anyway, use the Search function.

Ok, so I'll sum up what that chap at Lion Air told me. He said he is learning loads and the experience is great. He does feel completely overworked but the pay it good so he's pleased. Jakarta is a trying place to live as well.
I know two other people who left there after a year and a half and one went to HK and the other to the Middle East.
It's just a shame the program is a 4 year deal. Difficult place Jakarta, especially for that length of time.

California Falcon Aviation has a 2 years program and Jet Training 1 year program. Check Linetraining.net out too.

I think Jet Training are just the type rating provider for EagleJet and do not actually offer the line training scheme. They will simply put you in touch with EagleJet.

For the Falcon Aviation program you must have the type rating???
Linetraining offers a very good program, 500 hours + type rating + 4 year contract!
Too good to be true???
How much cost?
Falcon Aviation or Linetraining???

No RYR for me
