Great to see this forum back alive again. Recruitment is starting back up? This time it would be MPL training?

Would those who got passed the medical clearance in March'12 get a call up soon to redo medical tests?

Wow. Looks like someone is very well inform on issues concluded just last week. Perhaps it would be good to add in that it would be for the select few. Quite possible those would have applied before hand.

To the rest interested, slowly wait till 2015 bah. Perhaps get another job in a relevant industry rather than wasting time away.

Kinda old news, sfc has always trained private candidates, and recently started training the Tigerair CPL/IR course.

That was talking about SQ "renting out" its flight school. More signs that the crunch is not over. Can't wait for SQ forever. You are only young once and if you want to chase your dreams do it when you are young.

British Airways' cadet pilot program accepts applicants up to the age of 55. I don't see why age is always discriminated against in this part of the world. And BA pilots are some of the best!

"SIA will decide whether to switch to the new programme after its current review"

odds on,to the bean counters MPL is hard to resist.

As some from the 4th floor told me:[verbatim]" if you gonna hire a DRIVER would you pay for his licence? or expect him t already have one"

There are a lot of issues to consider for an airline to swich from the traditional ATPL syllabus to the MPL syllabus, and it is not easy coming to a decision. If pilots are self-sponsored, then it is unlikely that they would be bonded by an airline for a long time, and this would increase the turnover rate after some time. The MPL syllabus may not necessarily be totally better than the ATPL syllabus too - a pilot may be trained to be too dependent on the opinions of others before executing an action. In the event that he has to make a split second decision in the cockpit, there will be a psychological barrier that prevents him from carrying it out immediately because of the way he has been trained. There is also less solo flying too with the MPL syllabus. But consider the recent event where a captain had a cardiac arrest and the FO had to decide on his own, divert and land the aircraft himself. Just my two cents worth...

About SIA reviewing the MPL for training.
SIA may open flight school to other airlines | AsiaOne

The MPL course is more like training pilots to prepare for airline ops which should be better for the pilots receiving training and the airline who will get pilots trained in a multi crew airline environment (on the simulators) as per the airline SOP's. At present the estimate for training a pilot at SIA is SGD 250,000 and it is almost the same on the MPL courses offered by the likes of Tiger and Qatar. So SIA alradey holds its training to MPL standards. BA also has MPL course but they still sponsor their cadets and knowing the high standards SIA holds itself to I'm hoping they still sponsor their cadets.
