believe in yourself bro, you don't need to have a father like what they have, though it will put you in the edge, but that's only for now.

Remember that gold, even when exposed to such cetain amount of heat, it retains it's purities, not like an aluminum it's real elements shows up when heat treated even at low but prolonged temp.

while yours is founded by hard work and an unbroken determination, an iron will and humble heart... having these charcteristics, you'll never go wrong....


don't lose hope yet.. it's too early...

FP Ace,

You're one of those context readers and not content readers. In the world of aviation, to lose just two friends to air accidents IS A LOT. But just to appease your mind here it goes..."I have lost friends because they were just not ready"...good enough.

Browsing forums is not enough for you huh...need to comment on things that are beyond your understanding, and that you just can't phathom. Look, considering you just finished your FIRST SOLO, you should concentrate on your training because you do not know squat! Until you get your Private ticket, I suggest you zip it or else you might end up cleaning latrines in gas stations... No hard feelings.

with all due respect Peashooter, it is now the time to remove this kind of Practices and tradition in this Job. Maybe worthwhile doing in the Military, but not in Civilian Aircrafts anymore.
It doesn't really help in terms of CRM, and doesn't help at all in avoiding incidents.
If I were a part of the recruitment panel, i will fail right away those who will answer me...
- "I cannot afford Sir!" - meaning cannot even Challenged a Captain in times of wrong decision making.

- "No relation Sir"- what a liar, everyone knows who your dad is

the good thing is, I am not.

just my 2 cents......

FP Ace,

First of...I was not advertising anything...it sucks to lose friends, and it is just a reminder to you guys just starting not to take this profession lightly. What's wrong and inapproriate with that? Besides you mentioned you didn't like the fact that some ppruners were correcting your spelling or didn't have anything productive to say. Well practice what you preach bro.

But you know what, there is no hard feelings. We are suppose to work hard to help each other. Cheers

pilot wannabe - pmc q7

you may want to look at PAL Av school or Clark Institute of Aviation,

PAL Av School around 2M Php - can go for study loan with allied bank but with collateral.

Clark Institute of Aviation around 3.7M Php - can get sponsorship with cebu pacific once you passed the assessment exam from CIA.

if you need details PM me and i'll send it through email...


Dubai, gorgeous place!!!


Cheers Bro!!!

if you're a cebu pacific staff then you'll get 100% sponsorship once you passed the assessment.... but 50% scholarship is not bad, after that there's a sure right seat waiting for you....

Cheers to you too and pray that God will give you the desire of your heart...

Hey Guys,

i dont want to burst your bubbles, but Airline job is a totally different environment. Your CIA training will always be a Trained to Pass deal, basically like PALav, but of course it also depends if you crash the airplane during training....knock on whatever.
Anyway, after this you'll surely be evaluated again by the Airline company you'll joining with, in this case CEBUpac. And this time, it will be based on company SOPs in dealing with all sort of emergencies and failures.

If you pass this, you get into the line maybe as a Limited First Officer, if you fail...you can say goodbye to your hard earned investment.
Ask some people from PAL if there were Newly hired Pilots who failed the Initial training. The answer is yes, and you'll be amazed to know that some were even Captains from their former companies.
I suggest you wannabees to look for an Airline pilot out there and ask them for some knowledgeable opinions. Send PMs to some of the post makers around and inquire. And for the guys around, be sincere enough to tell them if you're on an Airline co. or not, your opinions does make a difference, but let it be known that this is not meant to belittle the opinions of My brothers in the Gen Aviation.
Experience and expertise doesn't come from training alone, its all after that...that will keep you alive.

Cool newbie question

hello guys!

I'm a newbie in this forum and I am one of the many people who applied as a Pilot Trainee for the PAL av school. Fortunately, I was able to pass the impact interview, thanks to some tips I received from a retired professional pilot. The interview was very challenging. The panel asked a lot of questions, mainly to determine your attitude. Right now, I'm getting ready for my initial medical exams and I just want to ask, since they will be checking my height and weight and body structure, do they really have to be proportionate to one another?

thanks!

Mga kabayan,

To those of you who have finished their CPL with IR and looking for a job, let me know if you have the capacity to fund your type rating as SimCenter in Florida is running a First Officer program in India in the A320 and B737.
Send me your email address and I'll send the info to you.

The job offers 4,400 USD per month + living expenses - that should be enough to live on and pay the loan back for your training.

You need to do the type rating with them and they will place you with an Indian airline. Check the documents I will send you if there are further requirements. ( e.g. pay for line training and base check)

cool! I'm an applicant too! Scheduled for psychomotor test on April 2, hopefully everything goes well.

Interview was ok, but they'll really flunk you if they don't like your attitude or answers. Has anyone here been through the pschomotor test? and psychometric?
