I have it on good authority, ie the guys in HR, that they receive many CVs every week. Those that do not meet the requirements are discarded without a second look. They will not reply if you do not meet their "Special Requirements"..

I have learnt during this entire ordeal that things in Indonesia take a long time. So 3 months is not outside the realms of possibility.

Most of the guys on my ground school had 48 months in their contract as an Anti Competition clause.. ie if you leave Susi, you cannot work in Indonesia for 48 months from the time you leave. If you planned on upgrading to a company that flies twotters or better in the future, your screwed.

Good Luck

Yeah,checking empty inbox everyday makes me think 'tomorrow is the end of the world' Let's keep each other informed and i will tell you if they invited me first

Time will tell
Thanks for answering.
I guess you have a point on their 'special requirements '.Though i'm blonde,23 years old and fresh from the flight school,maybe they were not satisfied with my russian name Ivan Drago

You would be surprised at some of the reasons they wont employ people. But its their company, so their rules..

1. Age not less than 23 - has changed a little lately
2. Single and not attached - unless your cv is outstanding in other areas
3. Not trained at a flight school that is on their "Blacklist"
4. Not come from a country that is on their "Blacklist"

This list goes on and on,

Good Luck

Still nothing. Been around 3,5 months since I sent in the general questionnaire.

This is Indonesia, and it's like this even in the biggest airlines.
If you don't get a reply in that long of a time, I would prompt them, because they have probably misplaced your stuff and forgotten about you

Well that seems about right seeing how they today (more than 3 months after submitting all the docs.) asked me kindly to fill out the general questionnaire...AGAIN.

Although it feels good to finally get a life sign from them.

Around three months ago the HR manager was sacked. No one to take over the job straight away so nothing was handed over. New person just had to start from scratch as they had no idea what was happening. If your waiting for a reply for something you will have to get in touch with them again.

Susi isn't exactly a high paying employer so they get what they pay for.

Very good salary compared to what?

Most of the Expats get paid about the same as what they would get at home in a similar position. The difference is the cost of living in Indo is generally a lot lower which gives a perception of being paid higher. '

A Caravan PIC making $2200 a month is pretty poor.

I would say that few of the expat management would get more than $5000 a month for the training or maintenance positions they hold.

I was commenting more on the pitiful wages Susi pays her local ground crew and admin staff. They burn through ground crew at an astounding rate. That's what happens when you employ kids and pay them $100 a month. Yes you heard me, $100 a month with free accommodation.

Susi Air no different than other poorly run airlines

The general conclusion is thus.

We would add that the founder has been called brilliant. Jan Roskams certainly thought so but then he was an aircraft designer, not an airline exec. And as for the dragon lady, she should still be selling handicrafts in Pangandaran off her borrowed motorcycle. she is useless otherwise. O yes, Kaji Ireng is the foundation she founded. Wonder how much SA money is funnelled into that and buying land at Cimerak Nes and other places in south Ciamis regency. Oh hey and how about that... Susi just flew in some fat slobs to her private acreage in Pangandaran to discuss how the NEW regency of Pangandaran will be carved up. She has ambition. And lust for power. She is evil.

And as a woman business owner, the media will fawn over her and the powers that be will support her. She cries crocodile tears for her crashes. A rotten world we live in, indeed.

I get an offer to fly there at 3 years ago and I simple refused.
Beyond T&Cs were low, maintenance&technicians are poor as also the flight training that already result in fatal accidents.
Hey Kid if you are desperate to fly better to building time at your local flying club but of course it is up to you, its only a opinion from an mature aviator.

Hi guys.

I have a question concerning flying on the caravan, how would the FO log the flight hours? If the FO has the cessna 208 class rating on is licence will be different?

Good flights.

As long as the companies AOC is approved for 2 crew ops on the aircraft you can log the time as p2. I'm fairly sure Susi is approved for it so no worries. It's the same for my company.

Do someone know if flying for Susi Air for a pair of years would be enough to to obtain a DCGA ATPL? As far as i know Susi Air operate under VMC/VFR rules only.

Do they accept applications for people with just an MEP and not SEP?

I know this has been discussed on page 1 already, but I am still not clear about this:

Since the Caravan is a single pilot aircraft, logging the hours as a FO actually means nothing? It does not account to total time??

I think you can log ultralight or Caravan FO hours in your logbook,but they mean nothing in Eu/Usa/rest of commercial world...

I will ask this question again,can Indonesian Caa approve MEP/IR rating to fly SEP/IR airplane? My FI told me once that Mep rating covers both
