Hello !

What costs do I need to expect if I join Susi Air?
- Training ($2500), still half pay during training?
- Visa?
- Exam / Licence / Medical?
- SEP, IR and Medical renewal?
- Other ?

Is it necessary to take another medical examination? If yes, do you know what is the maximum correction for corrective glasses?

Thank you

Don't forget a proper loss-of-licence and life insurance, it's not the safest outfit and you don't want to leave your loved ones with your financial burden.

Xuri -

Yep, USD$2500 payable when you start the intake course.

Half pay until you get to your base which takes 3-4 months at the moment.

You need to keep your home licence and medical current so you have those expenses but the company covers the cost of the visa and medical in Indonesia.

If you're tight with your cash you can get by with no other expenses whilst on tour other than your mobile phone and beers. Expect beer to be your number 1 expense, especially whilst hanging around Pangandaran waiting for a visa and validation.

Theres a lot of negativity on this thread, but if you look through these forums you'll see pilots whinge about pretty much every company on the planet. I won't lie, there are things that could be improved but all in all you'll end up with some great experiences and mates.

You will be issued a 1 year validation based on your home (EASA) license. As such, you will need to keep your home license current. Indonesian DGCA will no longer issue foreigners a local licence.

Company will cover all expenses related to VISA's, work permits, licence validation..... Keeping your home (EASA) licence current each year is your responsibility.

He didn't say anything related to the safety of planes/company policy but, the place you are going to work needless to say... is not the safest one .

Like you guys: no info about Susi Air but you should apply for the FO position if you meet the minimum requirements.
Good luck
