Sad decline at CAE as well as CX

Well, when your pilot recruitment team resign because of the horse manure of instructions they get from management on a daily basis, I guess you have to outsource to a well known agency.

When I was employed by CX way back, I was asked to go to Swire London to meet a couple of directors. Now you get Parc to handle your application. Another example of how CX has become a JAFAA.

Sad

Excellent career progression prospects (everything comes to those how waits. how long is a piece of string?)
If you are successful, you would enjoy the following benefits, and many more:
- Excellent salary (that will never increase with inflation)
- Monthly allowance (to live in the standard you would be expect a professional to enjoy)
- Travel benefits (to and from Taipei)
- Insurance benefits (with doctors of our choosing)

I guess everything is relative so if you compare the above with certain other airlines it probably is correct

I bet the commission paid to PARC per recruit would just about cover running the entire in house recruitment department for a month...
Pay more for less That's got to be TTW!

Next move "Signing Bonuses" for those who have not been employed for the past 3 years, have no flight experience or interest in aviation.. CAE can go and troll the streets of SFO for applicants..

The Real Meaning
  • Excellent salary ( no COL raise ever)
  • Monthly allowance (at company discretion)
  • Travel benefits - worst in the world AND (at company discretion)
  • Insurance benefits (at company discretion and decreasing year on year)
  • Housing (most expensive housing in the world) ???????????
  • No mention of schooling for children ??????????

  • Obtained passes in all ATPL exams with a minimum of 250 flight hours.
Is this a job for a C208 Copilot ??? Or a kind of CADET program?
CX are scraping the ABSOLUTE bottom of the experience pit

Angry Why would Swire care....?

If Swire are planning on quitting aviation soon to concentrate on fizzy drinks why would they care who they left flying the CX fleet.......I mean if it crashes after DP and AT have left the building it's not their fault is it?

All over Asia they are placing crew members with those qualifications in every aircraft they operate. Just where do you think they are getting their crew from?
That includes CX (as SO's) however they will do nothing for 5 - 6 years then move to FO. CX sister airline has received (as many others have) MPL qualified crew and shove them directly into the RHS of an A330 or A320 and these young folks can have slightly over 100 hours TOTAL with NO solo time necessarily required.
Chew on that for a while ! This is what corporate geeks do - low cost at any cost.
These rules are from our "all inclusive everybody's the same" friends in the EU.

BTW. China, all by itself, needs 100k pilots over the next 20 years. Do you think they'll all be highly qualified experienced pro's ??

Flex, in the USA, they are NOT doing that. You have highlighted the big problem with working for CX: they can hire from anywhere, at whatever standard, for whatever pay. They will ALWAYS be able to undermine your pay and conditions if the management of the day is willing to scrape the barrel. That is all you need to focus on. If you don't want a career that is constantly subject to that threat, then endeavor to establish a career with a first world airline. There really is no other choice. In the meantime, enjoy the spectacle of CX losing all it's experienced and qualified crew. The day will come when CX is JAFAA (and it is almost to that point already).

Not only CAE is advertising for CX, now Direct Personnel Int. is after second officers too. but with a very cute second officer.

Correct, demand is outstripping "quality" supply, so airlines are lowering their standards. CX is not the only one guilty of this, in fact I would even say they are late to the game. Personally I don't think there's anything to worry about since airplanes practically fly themselves anyways.

Airplanes that fly themselves...

Ha ha, yes, that’s what management (outside the USA) are deluding themselves with....while secretly hoping a real pilot is onboard when things go pear-shaped.

Imagine, the first time a passenger finds him/herself upside down in one of these “self flying” airplanes, it will also be the “pilot’s” first time.
