Asia Pacific Flight Training

Does anyone have any information on this training school in Malaysia.

Eg,
How many aircraft and instructors do they have?
What are the instructors like/standard of instruction,
What's the weather/training environment like in Kota Bharu?
Living conditions, standard of aircraft maintenance,
safety standards, any horror stories...etc
Has the first batch even graduated yet?

Any info greatly appreciated. Thanks!

For now, only 3 Warriors. More to come, plus some Senecas for twin engine training. The ILS for runway 10 KBR has just been commissioned.

Hi guys:

I got a MAS cadet fren who is going for the training in Kelantan (after 3 months in Australia). I guess this is the training centre that they are in. Thanks for the info.

Flight Instruction jobs in Malaysia

Good'day

I would like to obtain more info. about any flight schools that at the present moment are recruiting expat flight instructors to give flt training in Malaysia. From the net bowsing done so far, I just found MAF, Asia Pacific Flight training academy, and another place in Langkawi (!), but I am not sure if they accept any application or even is worth to try a first contact.

Thanks for the help.
Regards,
WYA

Malaka

The ones in Malaka are hiring for sure.
When I was there las may they were desperate, and for whta I heard still desperate.
The problem is that in Malaysia they can not hire Expat FO so everyone with a com licence is going to the airline so there is no Flight Instructors

Do these schools in malaysia hire on contract or is it open?

And what are their contract terms like, if they do hire on contract?

Thanks

Asia Pacific Flight Training seem to be doing a great job; most of the inst are ex air force and a very focused place to train.

Surely they will need expat inst as they expand with Diamond and go down the MPL route

Caution Mfa

Do not recommend to join MFA in Malaysia. All expat instructors are fleeing away. Finance Manager and Principal are the worst people I have ever dealt with in the aviation business.

Generally, I do not recommend anyone to work as a flying instructor anywhere in Asia. Especially in Malaysia.

HMM?

Ex military!

And you say is a good thing! let the gun boys do that guns is what they like best and do best.
Is like thinking that a good soldier is going to be a good cop. Who in heavens thought of that!

MFA is like most aviation businesses, a bunch of pirates, and no they are not all in the Caribbean. You just have to find a way of doing them before they do you.
Any company with a high turn rate of employment be aware....

Hma/military

Most of the ex military flying instructors have left HMA. Nevertheless, as I said previously, I recommend expat flying instructors not to join any flying school in Malaysia. Forget it and be careful with any other flying school in Asia. Move elsewhere!

I DO

I do recommend it.

You get out of your small mentality, broad your brain to different views and ways of doing things (right or wrong..... more wrong than right but...)

You save money at the end of your tour, you can have cheap drinks, house and women.

What else do you need!

PS: A bit of order and logical way of doing things....... then go back because you will not find it in the far EAST

I Do Not Recomend It

It is up to anyone to make his own decision. Just watch all posts about Malaysian Flying Schools, Standards, Wages, Organisation, Civil Aviation!

As far as drinks and girls are concerned just remember 60% of the population is strict muslim! I know better places in the world for fun!

If applicant does not have FI rating, it is compulsory to do a licence conversion first.

Side Info:
The money and time cost need for DCA M'sia licence conversion is approximate US$20K (RM70K) [view thread <- right click].

Let me calculate roughly:
1. RM60K for M.E. flying
2. RM10K for medical, tough UKCAA & DCA papers and flight test for conversion.


Your accommodation, food, travelling, miscellenous fees are all "unescape" expenses.
