basically it's saying that this school will train the first Multi-Crew Pilot License holders in the world... a 12-month program worth $75000 (roughly 4 million Philippine Pesos).

cheers and enjoy the video!

Php45.90 to a USD

so that's Php3,442,500 when converted to USD as opposed to Php3,700,000 if a would-be local cadet pays it in full. the blessed locals who are being sponsored by Cebu Pacific pay half (Php1,850,000) and that's exclusive of the miscelaneous fees such as accomodation, meals, and other services (laundry, extra uniform orders).

it wasn't that long ago when it was about Php53 to a dollar.

Hi airfoil,

go & finish your degree first then come here... we believe sponsorship from cebu pacific will not end soon.... this place is a great school, one of the high standards school.... and cebu pacific's cadetship program is one of the best opportunities which sprung here in philippines...

keep aiming high!!!

cheers!!!

no one has graduated from CIA just yet. there are 5 batches so far (i've seen a few guys passing by to take the assessment for the 6th) and the first batch will finish their training between December and January.

sponsorship from Cebu Pacific won't end anytime soon. depending on their demand for pilots, other cadets who are already in CIA and haven't got a contract with Cebu Pacific will be interviewed for sponsorship along with the ones who recently got accepted at CIA and also want to be sponsorsed. the full-paying (mostly foreigners) cadets would be recommended by the school to other airlines with needs for Airbus A320 pilots as well.

i'm also be a wannabe pilot here....


i've watched the recent video about the school....very impressive
very high standard and very high tuition fee.....


in just 12months....you're already a pilot of A320


can i ask some questions here about the MPL cadet pilot program in cebupac...and some confusing regulations of this kind of license....


what is the payment system of this kind of program? can i pay the 1,750,000 after the training(start of 5yrs bond) or pay it during the 12month training....


i have the book of the air laws of ATO.....
i read about the pilot license system
the only license recognized by the ATO is the
A.O 121 and A.O 135 ATPL license


and it is not indicated the "MPL" license system....
although it is approved already in ATO.....
i ask the ATO about this but they dont have the new laws about this kind of license...


can i ask how really MPL works?
and what is the legality of this kind of license....
and how can i guarantee that this kind of license can support my family and prolong my career...?


1. what is the full requirements of this kind of license....?
2. how many hours should i earn to have this kind of weird license...?
3. can be this license used in other airline companies?
4. can be this kind of license can be the same as the ATPL license..?
5. if this kind of license includes the IFR rating?
6. can i be promoted as a captain with this kind of license..?
7. how can i assure that a airline will not give discriminations of this kind of license?
8. can i act as a pilot-in-command wheter cessna or airbus?
9. if the license expires, can i take a ATPL exam instead of MPL?
10. can i get a prerequisites if i take the ATPL exam? instead of MPL?
11. if i have a logbook how can i expain to the examiner that i've logged in high-performanced jet in 5,000hrs. but only 70hrs of light aircraft?
and allow me to take a ATPL exams..?


i've read the info that a person has this kind of license...
you can be a F/O...but you cannot act as a pilot-in-command in a cessna!

can someone clarify on it?



although it is a very good facilities in clark institute of aviation....
including the training.....


but how can i assure that this kind of license will give me a good chance and have a good career....


and how really convincing that this kind of license will have a sure seat not only in cebupac...but also in other airlines companies......?


i hope that someone will have a very good answers to my questions....
to convince anyone to enter this profession and assurance of the future as a pilot wannabe...


thanks and happy flying

rave: i'll be interviewed for sponsorship next week! wish me luck...
rant: knowing our ground instructor, he'd prolly wanna have us back at Clark immediately after the interview so as not to miss a beat in the lesson flow. at CIA, if someone gets delayed... the whole class will have to wait for him/her to be on the same pace. a lot of catching up work to do by missing a day.

@pumping iron
haha.. check this week's notice board for names, mine should be there.


PAL Av School is great but unfortunately the management rarely (dare i say never) accepts relatives of former PAL pilots who left for another airline. not having to wait 6 months was also a huge factor since there would be a batch each month at CIA and the classrooms are enough for people undergoing ground school.

i'm just glad for the opportunity to even be considered by CebuPac for a sponsorship & a 3 year contract.

Cheers!

@happy flying boy kurimaw

CebuPac has no cadet program. they just happen to have a number of vacancies for pilots at the moment and they have partnered with CIA in training their current pilots by using CIA's Airbus simulator and in giving some CIA cadets a sponsorship. as far as CIA is concerned, they will recommend you to CebuPac for a sponsorship if you did well in the assessment.

as for the payment, the assessment is Php10K. if you've made it assuming you've received a sponsorship and opted not to pay Php1.85M one time... the installment is Php537,500 upon enrollment, and 3 more payments of Php437,500 after 30, 60, and 120 days payable by cash or check. if you won't be sponsored or won't be even offered to be sponsored, it's double the cost... Php3.7M or $75K

i do suggest for you to check from time to time the status of Cebu Pacific's pilot vacancies. the sponsorships are on a limited first-come first-serve basis so if Cebu Pacific doesn't need anymore pilots, you'd have to wait for another season of pilot vacancies. for the assessment, brush up on english sentence completion and advanced algebra... there's also an annoying video game section where it will test your hand-eye coordination, listening comprehension, and focus.
