I dropped by the Aviation Open House last week and yes, what @n350xwb said is true. SIA has pilots from all walks of life including Doctors,Bankers and even Diploma holders. I asked a lady from the booth and found out SIA are having interviews every single week. That being said, I can't help but to think they're able to afford to wipe out every candidate in that week.

This programme is offered for those with 0 flying experience, I've clarified this with the HR and a current captain currently flying the A330 fleet himself at the SQ booth at the Aviation Open house last Thursday. Hope this clarifies for those Singaporeans/ PRs aspiring to be one with SQ.
I am an indian and I am still waiting

Have you applied? All the best. But please note that SQ is slowly cutting down on overseas applicants, Singaporeans and PRs are more preferred and this is to due to the fact that people are complaining as SQ used to hire too many multi national pilots and leaving some Singaporeans to face intense competition or even jobless or unemployed. But nonetheless, please do not let this fact discourage you from pursuing your dreams, what I meant is the company prefers local candidates but this does not mean that overseas applicants do not stand a chance, they still do, if they have the passion/correct qualities and display the correct attitude If you have applied, be patient, it will usually take about roughly 4 months(or even above) for SQ to reply and invite you for the interview(based on what I read on the other forum). All the best!

p.s I'm an Indian too!

Thanks mate. How do you know that it takes upto 4 months ? I don't think you're bluffing but just to relax my consciousness.
Any example Or reference ?

wondering if they had to call for Singaporeans only, why did they open it for "all nationalities" in the first place ??

dont want to kill anybody's hope but, with current situation i guess international applicants stand a very dim chance of being called and selected as the majority of the batches are being filled by Singaporeans and Malaysians ...

Hi All,

I just receive email for the preliminary interview on upcoming Friday. But unfortunately i not able to attend, i had suggested another date which is 1 week later. Will SIA ignore my suggestion and I no longer have any chance to attend the first interview any further?
