Just wondering very seriously
🤔
If you are interested just put in your app, at this point we don't really know if by June we will be recalled back to work or if this is the end of AJX. We don't know what's going to happen

I get the feeling there is a lot of interest in working in this part of the world lately.
Maybe people might be under the impression Japan is immune from the toughest aviation crisis in history. Unfortunately it is not.
By all means apply anywhere you want, but do not think this is a safe heaven or a last resort, because itís neither.

So I understand sir that you are ( were ) currently employed with AJX. And are currently on a leave of absence due the Covid pandemic ?
Expected to return in June ?

King on a Wing April they requested voluntary leave and many pilots took it, May is involuntary leave for almost everyone (Trainees and a skeleton crew on the 76 for a handful of freighter flights) June they are expecting that we will work a short month with reduced pay but that is extremely unlikely since the pandemic is not looking at all like it is slowing down. So yeah! This is worldwide and AJX is most definitely not immune to the effects.

Just look at KAL, China Airlines, EVA, Singapore Airlines, Most of the airlines in China, Air Asia! The majority of the expat pilot force in all of Asia is idle right now.

I got a response to my application to AJX last week. Not sure what this means? Registration of interest? Starting recruiting again?

Really donít think there will be any company Needs new pilots this year....unless there is a vaccine, otherwise pax wonít get their confidence back. The virus wonít just disappear in any short time.

Rishworth schedules the next interview in May.
As they told me, I have to spend 8-10 months in Tokyo.
Am I eligible to bring my family for this term?
Or they provide some travelling opportunity?

There will be no access to Japan in May. The countries borders are still closed.

You can bring your family but the Japanese will work out a way to fail you as they don't like you doing it. The apartment in Tokyo is monitored by video and reported on.

They do not want gaijins living in Japan any longer than necessary.

You will not receive a visa to live in Japan also so you need to work out how your family can be legal residents. Your kids will not be able to go to local schools either.

Rishworth (as usual) are being less than truthful.

I recommend that you read through this thread, it is massive and very old but much of the information is still relevant, just go back a year or two and read from there.

Regarding your questions, the company will provide round trip tickets for your family to come visit you and of course that they can stay in the apartment with you, you are most certainly not being observed on camera, that is just plain BS! Now you do have to maintain a proper behavior while there and it is very simple, whatever would bother you that your neighbors might do, loud noises, late parties, being obnoxious with the staff, just don't do it yourself.

It is incredible that I have to specify that but you won't believe how many people didn't get a good spanking at the appropriate age and are now stupid adults! Basically if your parents had half an idea and turned a normal human into society, you will be fine at the apartment.

One important thing to remember is that your family (assuming they are eligible for the visa waiver program) will come in the country on a 90 day Visa. They MUST NOT overstay their visa, that creates all kinds of issues for the company and therefore to you!

There is a golden rule working for this outfit that must never be forgotten, the best thing is not to place the company's name on a negative light while you are representing it.

Otherwise this is a pretty liberal society!

Well It's actually $3300 I think for the 4 hours prep, plus an additional $1150 if you want the 8 hours. I don't know how they give back the money now. Until last month the deal was that it would be given back together with your first salary if succesful, or when you come back if not.

I'd say this job is on freeze like many others until we know the post-lockdown covid-19 situation but I guess worth applying just in case it gets you ahead of the game if it opens up again. A friend of mine who's been put on unpaid leave at another airline is finding that a lot of agency ads are just banners for jobs that are on hold due to the crisis. Let's hope things get going again once the world gets past this nasty virus which it surely will, might take some time though.

ALPA Daily had a link to a news article that says total recruitment freeze at all ANA Group companies.

This one says "Excluding recruiting for pilots, activities to fill other positions will be temporarily halted until the business outlook becomes clear."
