Not sure of what type of accommodations you prefer but in the center of town, what is called District 1 is your best bet, close to everything, tour buses originate from this area, to all points. No safety issues, all parts of the city are very safe.

Money is a bit low considering the inflation that affects expats, living conditions much better than India and the 6/2 schedule is good.

VN questions

Hi Dream Land.
Thanks for the info. How much in terms of rent and living expenses should one single guy be expecting to part with every month in HCMC? (safe comfortable condo, occasional beers, and getting around with taxi, can eat local food, etc) .

working conditions, fellow pilots, local and expat pilot integration?

command potential for FO contract?

Yes it is possible to purchase condominiums, purchasing land can be accomplished with a bit of red tape or Vietnamese wife.

They seem to be getting a bit desperate, Rishworth email stated they are in the process of finalising terms for pilots not meeting usual requirements of 1500/jet 500/type for FO. Basically if you have an A320 rating they will look at you.

I got that same email twice already. All I did was ask for some information and now I keep on getting their emails every week. Do you guys think they will raise the pay again??

theyre having lots of discussions as we chat
they dont seem to reach an agreement
with the ATR pilot's and "extras" are diff from the ATR fleet & Airbus fleet
like per diem & accomodation
in ATR allowance is $1,000 , in 320 is $1,500
simply not fair for the ATR skipper's ,you'll live in the same city
regardless of type............its stupid
so ATR pilots are realy upset & mad about it
also they wanna change the per diem fix
from $1,000 to $1,200
lets see what they come up this week
c ya

It doesn't matter how the individual salary, housing, or per diem expenses are divided up. Each contractor does it differently.

All that matters is what the total is.

Which fleet are you needing information on? You can just click on the Rishworth Aviation banner on PPRuNe to see details of the offer.
