What nationality is Mr.Ortolan?
Nobody gets that kind of job without a ‘recommendation’ from an insider. Maybe a fellow countryman.
Aviation is such a club of back scratching bastards these days. It’s like the Freemasons.

If you don’t have anything good to say rather keep your mouth shut.
Mate, you got it ALL upside down. Nobody is trying to deter people from HK Express airlines. Just some rather interesting details about the recruitment process within HK Express, for potential candidates to be aware of, being shared. No need to get so offended and mix up emotions with reality. What was being said was quote ".. The company has not inform the Civil aviation department of hong kong.." unquote. So what is being questioned here is the moral within HK Express airlines. A fair point, which you may not like or agree too, but that speaks about your own moral, not somebody else's. Who are YOU to tell anybody to shut up, just because you don't like the evident truth to be disclosed. I suggest you stay put in you warm fuzzy chair and take a chill pill.

Why, it seems he hit the nerve - that concludes not need for any further sophistication needed. Perhaps there should ideally be a Thread specific to this revealed information. Anyways, someone here on PPRUNE asked how things are at HK Express airlines, and now they got a bit more of an insight. When you're a "manager" you're automatically accepting a responsibility and with that comes your name. There is no name shaming here, just a manager (albeit by name) being identified. It seems there are a lot of woman working at HK Express.

Did I hear bamboo airlines? recommendation? look at hong kong e... if they like you there's no need for recommendation. Before hong kong express he was at vietjet, over there he was just a FO. No LHS on A320. How did he concluded the job as a Flight safety technical manager and sign off all the documents?

It is not disgusting to put someone post onto pprune unless the company does something about it instead of letting him get away. No one is maligning the company but to let people have a second opinion on landing a job.

It's not about nationalities here but let me tell you his should be french. Its about getting people to work without doing a proper screening. Now his disappeared, and the management is just covering up their mess. X, G, R these are the people who are involved accepting him as a management pilot.

BTW I did not say “shut your mouth” but instead just quoted that well known saying that a lot of us know we should be doing. Key word was “IF”.
You seem to know something here..so share it or dont get upset with other's comments or views. Think your reply could have been nicer mate..cheers

He answered from the comfort of his chair, from where he doesn't want to leave and is terrified of one day losing it. Only that trash in the Flt Ops management get so emotional about these things...

Hey guys. I have a licensing question.
If one joins with a frozen ATPL but currently has the required hours for a full ATPL, is it possible to unfreeze to a full HKCAD ATPL as part of the license conversion process, via the LST?
Also are the EASA theoretical ground exams valid in Hong Kong? Or do the equivalent HKCAD exams have to be taken?
I ask because some airlines (present one included) do not allow their FOs to unfreeze.
Cheers

Many Thanks,
not so sure about it

There is a news on South China Morning Post on Hainan Group in some sort of financial difficulties. Good luck waiting.

Yes. You sit for I think 3 papers during the conversion. You get a CPL from CAD, when you hit 1500 or 3000 hours (Not sure you have to check), you get it unfrozen.
