Don't put your hope too high... Chances are that most of these jobs won't be in Singapore.

Singapore Airlines lifts hiring freeze on cadet pilot recruitment program - The China Post

the last time they had a hiring freeze, it lasted for 1.5yrs.

so be prepared for such a timeframe this time round

Last I heard they want to do a selection, don't know if it will still hold true given the recent spat of issues. Any news on incoming aircraft orders being delayed on SIA side ? Last heard cadets in jandakot is flying 2 -3 flights per month. This was caused by some issues with maintenance issue or something with the training fleet there.

It simply be that they are unable to train that much cadets now, at most they will just simply resort to hiring ready crews.

SFC172N, what do you mean by SIA wanting to do a selection? Do you mean starting the hiring process again?

jandakot is filled to the brim with cadets last i checked, and flying's not being slowed down deliberately, definitely more than 2-3 flights per month.. guys don't be distraught if hiring doesn't resume this year, take the opportunity to polish your knowledge and nail the interview when hiring resumes.. (next year will be a good bet)

Hi All,

I know this is not related to SIA Cadet but while waiting for the opening maybe for those interested who wants to have a taste of flying and also to contribute to the youths, have a look below


To further promote aviation, Dream of Flight is coming up with a Charity Joy Flight Event on the: 23 Sept 2012 (This Sun) Morning, Senai Airport Johor.

For a small contribution, you, your friends and family members can experience a 30 mins flight on a 4 seater piper. The fund collected will give the next less privileged youth a chance to experience the same joy that you did.

So do not hesitate, for more information visit: Dream Of Flight now!

From SASP2:

Educational Standards
An applicant, whether ab initio or requiring an abridged course will not be accepted for training on an approved training course for the issue of a Multi-crew Pilot Licence or Commercial Pilot Licence course unless he hold a General Certificate of Education with passes in five subjects at ordinary level including English Language, Mathematics and a Science subject.

For applicants who possess other equivalent educational qualifications, the DGCA will determine whether their qualifications can be accepted for this purpose.

Del-icious, jut try la, if not, you never know the answer. Got interview, happy, no interview, also an answer.

That depends on which airline you're talking about. If SIA-group, forget it.

hi flying.monkeyz.

1. judging from the SASP's statement on educational requirements, am I right to say that the 5 O levels which must include eng math sci in ONE SITTING is SIA's requirement and not CAAS's?

2. Would I be eligible to apply for SIA's CADET pilot interview if I have 6 olevels credits taken in 2 sitting?

3. Would i be given a chance to sit in for an interview with SQ or MI if i send in my application as an applicant with a CAAS CPL MEIR f/atpl. I have 6 o levels credit which includes eng math sciences in 2 sitting?
