787 Contract

Can anyone give me an idea what life is like on the 787 in VNA, I see a 4/4 contract is been advertised which would suit me. I dont expect it to be wonderful but would appreciate any honest feedback about the good and bad bits. Thanks

and entires bussiness class smelling of cigarretes smoke from the cockpit and crew bunk beds.

local cabin crew and pilots have to pay management under the table money to get hired,

so the is no merit at all to work for them, no incentive to work and study to excel and be someone in the system,

its all about who do you know and how much money you have.

there are millions in waste, from improper fuel policies and procedures and poor pilot training and decision making.

etc etc etc. communism at work i guess.
I have been with 2 flag carriers in the Asia Pacific region and they are no different than VNA from what had been described concerning corruptions and wastes. It is a product of "state owned" business so no one really gives a Sxxx such that money and favors are used to get ahead in the corrupt system. It probably will take another 10 years or even a few incidents or accident (God forbids) for the airline to clean up like their other "more developed" and a bit less corrupted Asia carriers that already went thru this growing process. It would be smart for the Top Management or Main Share Holders of VNA to read up some of the backgrounds and history of other already developed Asia Carriers and see what they went thru to change under this current mentality..

I hear there will be an English grammar test before the interview to ensure the pilot knows how to properly write in English without using abbreviations of a teenager.

Hope they don't introduce that test, we would have no FOs left

Check2 the sim is pretty old-school, they love to get it into raw data, alternate law, man thrust, and spend most of the exercise flying around like that. Possibly a visual circuit for warm up. Popular ECAMs are FCU fail, dual MCDU fail, various combinations of flight control computers and radalt failures, whatever gets you hand flying. After that, probably a windshear and TCAS, standard instrument rating renewal stuff, V1 cut and non precision approach

Itís a month for this post , you may have done all.

Skype interview consists of personal information and your background experience, some Technical system on 787 - HUD element - AFDS component etc , Operation question such as Fail Operative/Fail Operation - windshere recognition etc and basic meteorology.

I heard that SIM Is done in Basic instrument/Raw data with many Malfunctions, Eng fail, Hyd loss etc.

At the moment SIM is not required during recruitment.

SIM session during training would be the same pattern.
