I hate to burst your bubble Romeo, but we live in the real world and the bitter reality is that CAAP is a hopeless case. It is being run by highly-trained-for-nothing people. They may have the right staff for operations but the wrong guys in management are running the show. Your optimism for a change is just a waste of time. If I were you, I'd get out of there asap. Yes, LEAVE NOW!! Take your talent and skills elsewhere. Some place where they are recognized, appreciated, respected and compensated for what they are worth.
CAAP hopeless case???...i see birth pains the i wish we get over with....
the people who's running the show should go away not I........ thought about leaving the agency but........ i love my job...... i enjoy my job...... i like it here.....being with my family and friends... well the pays sucks, that's life...it is better than nothing...
Aaahh... Finally, after the long wait, it's out now. 30-40% increase in salary for the technical staff. Not bad.. but still way, way off the 100% increase that has been promised before. Although the allowances issues are still dodgy at this stage. Is this the beginning of a better life in CAAP?
FYI people, we are the technical staff. We're not included in those donation boxes that's been mentioned in this forum. They've (Safety Div) been increased as well. Will this be the end of the so-called "donations" issue?
A Senior Aviation Safety Inspector at the Safety Div earns around P20,000/mo. With a 40% increase thats about P28,000 w/o taxes, this is still very LOW A manager in a big MRO in the Phil usually gets a pay of about P50,000/mo. You cant convince highly qualified people to join CAAP with this kind of salary. In that case they would still have to have the donation box
20t is just the basic. Their allowances are just unbelievably off-the-roof. However, the donation thing will continuously be there, lantaran man o patago, it's part of the culture already.
30-40% increase might be decent enough but the fact remains the same; People will continue to leave not only because of the money issue. The corrupt practices, bad politics and rotten system of CAAP are unbearable to many employees, ATCs in particular. A big proof of this is the huge turnout of applicants when a South African HR came over to recruit experienced controllers.
What is the management's word on this? "Let them go, they can be replaced". Yeah right!? By a young, newly grad who they expect to talk to 20-30 aircraft at any given time and expect the same results. You can never buy experience!!! When will they ever learn that!?
Uhm, well Philippine Civil Aviation will indeed suffer with these people around , if ever our category goes down the drain we can thank these people it only take a few rotten tomatoes to spoil whole bunch,

Hey guys, I had heard about all those things which go on in CAAP, from giving cash to delays. But believe me I went for my initial license and I found no delyas and but found everyone very helpful and even didn't pay anyone a single penny for anything apart from the one mentioned above which you ought to pay either you like it or not. I mean the rest were not bad as I processed some of my things myslef.
what about the competition between organic and consultants? how will this ever get solved. how can caap get rated gents when organic pay structure would be by passed and get paid ( higher than the president)
