Pay your respects

Captain Custodio is on indefinite leave to spend more time with his mother due to her ailing health. His mother just passed away yesterday in case you didn't know. Give the guy a break.

Captain Maralit...I don't know if he even has a mother.

Expats will never have a permanent position at Cebu. They will use you as they need you and then when they don't, it's Adios.... I mean Paalam.

not sure how you can call it permanent as I presume the Work Permit is not Permanent.

Permanent as in "local" hire, as opposed to "contractor".

Yes, contractors in any country, with any airline are only temporary workers.

You may be locally hired but as Foreign Crew you have a work permit that is not permanent, I think that is what Stewsan was hinting at?. They can use that as a way to flick you off when they dont need you anymore and pay CR22pier terms etc. Its happened before,

Name any job in aviation where you are guaranteed employment.

You can be cut loose from any position, with any airline at any time.

Again, come in as a "contractor" and you are already starting off as a "temporary help" status.

Cebu Pac???

Cebu Pac,
if the company need pilots - they hire, in the past expats as well.
If the company dont want the expats anymore they brake the contracts.
This happened end of last year again.
From information until end of duty: Two weeks, no matter the contracts where still running.

Contract as local pilot:
Low salary
14 days leave per year
Expect around ten weeks running around and organizing many, many and more documents, confirmations, certifications, lots of photos 1x1 and 2x2, in different colours, they dont accept what you bring if the colour is not exact what they want- and different offices intern and extern want different colours, tests, two medicals, local english languagge prof, local radio com. licence, local ATPL and many, many things more.
All in all, that keeps you for weeks busy.
You will travel criss cross the city, traffic jam everywhere and always.
On a bad day expect for five kilometer 90, 120 minutes or more.
In that case, walking? You will do that once!!
Believe me, many, many things more.
And you will hear: Come back next week, tomorrow, next wednesday or whatever hundred times before you finish to organize the documents. You will need a taxi and waisting a half or complete day very often for nothing.
Once you have completed everything, all the documents and requirements you dont get a licence. You will get a temporary licence with the permission for a checkride in the sim and a linecheck. Your first flight in the company will be a linecheck.
Thereafter you may get the local licence. How you keep your loicence is your problem, dont forget you have only 14 days leave per year.
Finally, dont forget a blue and a black pen!
Sometimes you are only allowed to write and or sign in blue,
sometimes you are only allowed to write and or sign in black.
And, you pay for everything on your own for the Journey, Hotel, food, medical, CAAP, taxi to organize everything during weeks without salary until you finally productive flying on line- that may take three month, or more.
The base may be changed from one day to the next, i know pilots who got a change one day before they started.
Salary: As a captain you get something between 190K and 250K PHP A320 and ATR72 (4000 and 5000 USD)
Once you are in, it is OK.
But you can be out any day for many reason.
The word fairnes is not known in SE-Asia and as well not in some companies...
Its more fun in the Philippines...

You forgot the bit... if you don't like it - no one's forcing you to take it! But then again in those days weren't expat on contractors paid 11k USD + housing + travel allowance etc (for the ATR - maybe more for the airbus).

Agreed if you're a 1500+ hr ATPL FO (with Jet time) or Capt then maybe you have other options but if you're a low hour FO trying to get your first job or some hours and they're offering you the 'Limited' FO post then you've probably got no other options - a lot of people would bite our hand off for the opportunity to fly without having 'Pay to Fly' - sorting your documents is a small price to pay, although easier (I understand) than the likes of Japan, Korea and China.

Salary: As a captain you get something between 190K and 250K PHP A320 and ATR72 (4000 and 5000 USD)
Again, you are only quoting productivity pay (flight pay) and you are leaving out the base pay (about $3000/month).

And, you pay for everything on your own for the Journey, Hotel, food, medical, CAAP, taxi to organize everything during weeks without salary until you finally productive flying on line- that may take three month, or more.
Once you are employed you are on base salary until released to the line, at that point you will receive "productivity pay" (flight pay), so again your statement is inaccurate.

Expect around ten weeks running around
Can be done in about 4 weeks actually. Depends upon the motivation of the person doing the running around.

Once you have completed everything, all the documents and requirements you dont get a licence. You will get a temporary licence with the permission for a checkride in the sim and a linecheck. Your first flight in the company will be a linecheck.
Thereafter you may get the local licence.
Actually you get a "validated" ATPL based upon your home countries ATP. And you don't get a "line check" until the "release" flight after SLF and RQ. After 200 hours in a RP registered aircraft you are eligible for a full conversion to a CAAP ATPL.

Thereafter you may get the local licence. How you keep your loicence is your problem, dont forget you have only 14 days leave per year.
The company allocates days off for license renewal with the CAAP. If you must return to your home country for a license renewal then yes, it could be a problem.

But you can be out any day for many reason.
The word fairnes is not known in SE-Asia and as well not in some companies...
Same is true with many airlines around the world. Please name one airline that once you are employed you are guaranteed a job for life?
