How is working for Lion Air?

I know that they ordered 154 Boeing 737-900s. I havent heard much about them so Im very curious. The contractor that I'm talking to says that the offer is 10,000 USD month plus housing. Will that go far in Jakarta? Eventually the bases will be in Vietnam and Australia.

hi there,

that amount will allow you to live like a king in jakata if your based in indonesia or vietnam but not so in Aus.

10k usd with housing is a good deal living in indo or vietnam where you will be able to save much more as living standards are low at that area.

cheers!

great way to fly

Question ???

This is from the website you refer to. Can you explain how you find some information in english?

Het Aircrew Training Center selecteert gemotiveerde piloten en gaat verder dan een standaard vliegopleiding. Bovenop het JAA CPL Frozen ATPL krijg je bij het ATC de mogelijkheid om de opleiding af te ronden met minimaal 500 Boeing 737 of Airbus 320 vlieguren. Met ruim 20 jaar airline ervaring in Nederland en de USA kan het ATC inspelen op de aanname eisen van de airlines wereldwijd. Ons Professional Program gevolgd door het Heavy Jet Program garandeert je ruim 1.000 vlieguren.

Nieuw is het Accelerated Program waarbij de leerling vlieger na de opleiding in de USA gelijk op assesment gaat bij een Airline in Europa of wereldwijd. Na het succesvol doorlopen van de selectie en het behalen van de benodigde type rating gaat de vlieger gelijk aan de slag als First Officer.

Onze filosofie is dat motivatie en doorzettingsvermogen de belangrijkste eigenschappen zijn van een piloot in wording. Daarbij moet een aankomende leerling verder willen kijken dan alleen maar Nederland en de KLM. Vanwege onze eigen ervaring in de luchtvaart weet het Aircrew Training Center de voordelen te combineren van het FAA en JAA systeem. Het ATC is een goede opstap naar een succesvolle carrière als verkeersvlieger.

accommodation

If you live in an apartment in Jakarta attached to an international hotel chain like the Ritz carlton or Marriott, expect to pay around USD$3500 - $4000 per month. These will be the most expensive. Reasonable apartments can be found for USD$2000 or less per month.

You also need to think about where you live, unless you want to spend your days in traffic!

Lion Air is actually committed to 178 x B737-900ER's, some of this number are in service. I would not leave a current job no matter what it is to join Lion Air. There are rumours the expansion plans have slowed up and the strike at Boeing was to the advantage of Lion Air. Look for an announcement pre Christmas.

i'd applied through cae a while back but haven't heard back anything to date, except an email stating we will let you know oin the date/ place of assessment. That's about it, and tried getting a name or two at cae to speak directly to but that didn't happen...for whatever reason

good luck

If you want to go through CAE then...

Last assessment was 26 March, next Assessment in Brussles 20.April

You have to pay 17000 Euros for B739 TR wih CAE

Salary 3600USD gross (tada!!!) after qualified on type (at current exchange rates)

Expect max flying, 2 years contract, if you brake contract then you pay 10K USD and not to mention the 6 months notice required

In other words, its a crab offer!

Syrian Aviator has the numbers pretty much correct....... Capt MAX pay would be about $3500/month, including sector allowances.

One small problem is they are not yet sure if the Indonesian Government will allow them to hire additional ex-pat pilots................... that's a show stopper, Gents.

Don't know how CAE is promising jobs after training with a straight face.

USD 2K for a place in Indo? No way, that is way too expensive. I think you can find a good place for less then USD 500

If you're prepared to go out towards pondok cabe airport very large houses (500 to 700m2) can be rented for around $750 per month. As a rule of thumb $10 to $15 per square metre per year. Rents are paid yearly in advance.
