Very strict. Lotsa exams. If you miss the online study, you get fines. A whole list of penalties at work. I do not know if it is good or bad. The licensing and training are fast compare to other chinese company. Sim check, are all random. Don't expect check and training will go according to the training notes. It's up to the examiner to make LMC. Last check, was asked a random questions. If you don't know just say don't know. Had a 90 knots w/s on take off. TCAS RA automatic function didn't work revert to manual. Left engine bleed leak during climb and engine 2 flame out, relight successful. followed by R engine bleed 2 leak. Emergency decent. Followed by Dual FWC fault and EEC. They were checking on procedures, decision making and flying skill in a unrealistic situation.

Compare to other companies (during this pandemic), it is definitely the best paid for now.

Wanna know more. PM moi.

hijack Can't seem to PM you for some reason. Would you be able to share what the roster is like typically in Loong Air? (Days off/Overnights etc). What is flying there like as an expat?

Much appreciated

Hello.... during ground training to the end of line training, you will not be on the commuting roster. when online, depending on your commuting roster, you be expected to fly 4 to 6 days of layovers than a 2 days off in hangzhou.
