Indigo DEC job..

Considering a Direct Entry CA job with Indigo... I'm wanting feedback or info from anyone who's done it, or maybe worked with another Indian carrier in a similar capacity.

I've flown in and out of India with Gemini Air Cargo before, so it's not that I'm trying to get info on flying in India, but I would like to know what kind of FO's I'd be flying with.. I was told that some FO's aren't even allowed to do take of and landings.. which sound crazy to me.

Also, what's expat life like there... how far does $1500/month go for housing, can I bring my family and get a clean nice home in a clean neighborhood say in Bangalore?

Thanks for any input..

Hey thanks for the info.. I've been talking with Blue and he told me the staffing is an issue now and hopes it's remedied.. I flew the MD11, but my last job got me an A320 PIC Type and 215 hours of time on it.. I am being told I will be able to fly direct "Trainee Captain" until I've flown 100hrs left seat IOE and I heard something about having to do 12 line checks!!! I sure hope they're like the FAA line checks and not a second guess fest!

Anyway, I am looking at a lot of options, including Jazeera, and Vietnam.. I'm most concerned about Quality of life, and commute (or possibly bringing the family with)..

Overall, it sounds like you're not too unhappy.. I guess I just don't want to be abused with 14 hour days and min rests... that would be a show stopper for me.

Cool

Hi MdDog,

Have you thought of Tiger Airways in Singapore,
If it's quality of life, sin city is great, but expensive,
you won't get rich there,
Cheers

Off to,

Hey MDDog, I have a proposition. You take the job at Indigo and hook me up with Gemini. Sound good? I'll have a 12 pack for you in the mail if you do!
