Haha. Thanks for the advice. I have been talking to several captains. Most likely I will be pursuing a EASA.

Hi guys, I read through the previous posts and wow, this forum is really informative. I applied for the upcoming scoot/tiger mpl selection but if in the event I dont get it, I am thinking of going for sfc's CPL programme. However do you guys think it is worth the risk? Considering that all local airlines are hiring cadets to fill up future positions. Would they still consider CPLs?

That's up to you to decide and weigh out the risk. Nobody is going to make that decision except you.
If you have already made up your mind, no matter what anyone says otherwise you will still do it.
Consider properly and think hard.
Ain't a bed of roses out here

Hey all,
this thread has been on for nearly a decade and I know theres definitely alot of changes.
Just wondering I'm turning 34 yrs and at this age in SG it seems like really a crucial decision period.

I was looking at doing my CPL with FAA schools or schools in NZ as AU is actually quite pricey. Was wondering would plunging in for a local CAAS license at STAA or SFC be a recommended idea given at least you don't need to face the chicken and egg situation of license conversion & employment at a local operator?

It is pricey with no guarantee of a job but would be good if anyone can share their experiences for self sponsored cadets in those 2 schools? in the recent years have most found roles in scoot /jetstar or even SQ?

Another worry I have is I have an O level A level equivalent and a degree but not GCEs, anyone face employment hurdles simply because of that?

Dude, you are way too old. Oldest so far was 32 and he got in because of a stellar educational record.

just note if you’re planning to do so, the amount of money and time you need for the conversion.

Yeah min 700hrs unless from an approved course then its 200hrs. I believe if you went through an integrated course, it might be considered.

Have you started or still in the planning stage? At this moment there is only 1 fully based training organisation in SG
