If I may, does anybody know if there are any foreign line capts on the A330 with VN ?
Are you joking? Any foreign captains at VNA? Of the thousands of postings in this forum, have you seen ONE posting written in Vietnamese?

ATR, A320,321,330, 777, and even the two little f&cker F70's all have foreign captains.

I started there but never got off the ground.... They had a change in operations for the A320 and decided they did not need so many A320 pilots.... last one hired first one off as they say.
What a load of rubbish! Would that be you Pierre? Or is it one of the other chaps who showed up and couldn't pass the line-check?

VNA is hiring over 140 pilots this year alone. Can't find enough "qualified" chaps. The future looks good here mate.

I've been offered a screening for A320 captain position. Any one care to give me some info on the sim profile and what life in general is like in Ho Chi Minh.
Thanks. M

There's saying in Africa that fits quite well in Vietnam - all of Asia for that matter....

You say you have too much information, but you would like to have more.. well I'm afraid it won't e different the second time around, please be more specific if there is some conflicting remarks.

In a nut shell, it's a good contract and VietNam is a great place to live.

Life's short. Stop wondering; start doing!

I feel that way with dating sites on the web

is there anyone out there who could tell me more about living and working in vietnam.
My guess? Probably yes!

wondering to send my application for f/o position on the a320 fleet
I'm gonna sound like a broken record (DVD for you youngins')..... Life's short. Stop wondering; start doing!

"Actually", currently having a bit of fun at your expense!

thanks very much for spending some time with this

There is also Euro-Pacific. You must do your own homework on who gives the best deal, there are many opinions about this subject, factors include items such as:

1. Do they have any screening dates?
2. What is the salary?
3. When does your full time salary begin?
4. What insurance is supplied?
5. When is your salary paid to you?
6. Does your agency charge you a fee to xfer your salary to your bank?
7. Are you free to use a bank of your choice, or must you use a designated bank?
8. In case you have some questions or problems, are there any local reps to help you?

Good luck,

Hi Guys,

I recently got selected to go to Vietnam as an A320 F/O. I also got selected with Wataniya. I am a little confused as to where to go. I have the standard contract with Vietnam....the 6 on 2 off and the pay. Does Vietnam have an upgrade policy for A320 F/O's. If anyone has insight of that, please let me know. Thanks in advance.

Of course it's great if you can go and experience each of the locations, if you are a single guy from the states, my guess would be that you would enjoy the life style here in Vietnam much better than the ME.

I would do whatever is necessary to speak to one of the crews in Kuwait, do your homework. Good luck.

Thanks NVPilot....as you said I am in the process to speak to one of the crews in Kuwait. At the moment I am flying in India. Please let me know if there's a chance for 320 F/O's to upgrade to Capt's. Thanks.

Regards
