Hi mates! A friend of mine is trying to hit a job in small airplane (Caravan or small twin) operator. He would like to know what should be the cost of life in a city in Indonesia and what pay he can expect. Thanks for the info
I am not sure what the pay package is now. I was there in 1996-1997. I worked for Sempati Airlines. Pay was around $4500 USD per month. Capts made quite a bit more. I went through a UK contract agency--Strongfield Aviation.
Cost of living depends on where/how you want to live. If you want the expat experience then it will cost more. If you live a bit like the locals then its a lot cheaper. I had a studio "expat" apartment in Jakarta--It cost around $1000/month.
Doudou, There was a 208 job going in CKG (Jakarta) on Climbto350. Not the safest place to be though. Love the metal Detectors before you go go in a night spot. and taxi everywhere dont walk.
Remember the HaiLai regards
