Dunno how cheap the indon pilots are but the local aviation industry is taking a dive with the rising fuel price and most would like to get a job somewhere, anywhere....beats sitting at home...



I know that a lot of pilots showed up for the interview in Jakarta, they will be contracted through a 3rd party agency. Not sure about what they are offering but like I said better than being an unemployed pilot.

I am curious to what is the present condition of the company, since I've heard that there was an exodus of Malaysian pilots to the middle east, thus creating the present shortage of qualified/rated pilots. As I am sure that hiring of expats will be a short term solution, like to hear all of your opinion to what is really going on within the company and how you all feel about the hired guns driving MAS airplanes soon.

Thanks!
