Best Agencies for China?

Hi, I am looking for a new position in 2018 and considering China. There are so many agencies out there so are there any recommendations? A colleague of mine used a European Agency and nearly one year down the road he still hasn`t started with the Airline. Any advice would be appreciated. Tks

CAE Parc in Vietnam.

Literally completely useless, rarely respond to email and zero support. My experience is once you sign a contract with them, you are unlikely to here from them again with the exception of spam newsletters.

Currently experiencing an on going, unresolved allowances dispute for >5 months (they refuse to Abide by the terms and conditions of the contract they presented us with and signed off on)

Maybe others have had a different experience in other countries, and I would enjoy saying something positive about them but unfortunately itís not the case.


Steer well clear.

Completely agree with all you said. Parc used to be THE agency to go with, till CAE bought them. Now it's trash like most of them. No communication, open disputes and zero support. Stay away !!!

Sent an inquiry to Smile Aviation and APAS from their respective websites over a week ago. I wanted to get the information before the Lunar New Year. I have yet to hear from either agency. This type of non-service for a prospective pilot sends red flags soaring in my book. If you can't answer some basic questions as I try to enter contract I doubt they will be quick to respond to my needs while on contract. I have to say I was under contract with Rishworth several years ago and they were good to me. Communication was great and never late with payment. When contract was over all was handled very professionally.
For what its worth, my $.02.

Same here, avoid Parc Aviation by all means in Vietnam, I used to work for them for more than 5 years, now with the last representative ruling the operation in the country, the service has turn the worst one, when few years ago everyone agreed it was the best. Zero communication, zero support and zero caring about you. The pilot who represents the agency in Vietnam Airlines is another example of nothing more than to be careless except to fill up his pocket covering his ass with any kind of issue....

Agency

In my opinion. Get a contract agency better in China. Even you choose the commuting options.

I join HNA via one agency(I cannot point their name) during the screenings procedures. My agency was fine. After I report to HNA. I need to sign the contract with HNA overseas directly. it means I finished with my agency.

If there is no agency help you. It is very difficult to....
Chinese phone number contract
Renting apartment
Dealing with Chinese people, especially the Chinese people from work in some particular situation.
....

Besides, not sure about the which agency is better. But in HNA, I heard PARC is not HNA's contract agency.

I’ve been flying three years in Vietnam (VNA) with Rishworth. So far, so good, no complaints at all... Besides the fact that they do include the best medical insurance.

Quick question for anyone: A guy from a recruitment agency in China is asking me if the FAA can validate my total time and PIC hours. I have never heard of such a request, any CAA normally validates the licence, and indicates if there is any suspension or revocation, accidents or incidents, but never hours. A call to the FAA Airmen Records section also got the same answer.

I know your logbook is normally stamped by your current/last company as verification. Is there something I'm missing? Has anyone gotten the FAA to track their individual flight hours for verification of the CAAC request?

Rishworth has a very mediocre reputation and Parc, forget about it. Parc does not do anything for pilots they donít absolutely have to ó Parc is out for Parc, and thatís it.

I recommend APAS around Asia. Not exactly sure if they do Asiana but they have several listings around the area. They are located in Taiwan with offices abroad. Good service, never had a problem with them. Since the beginning they explain all the details of the contract and they are always available to you.

Looking at options and I may be on shakey ground, looking at the KAL contract. Can anyone advise, the salary quoted is it gross, or net of Korean tax etc? e.g. what do you get in your hands?

Once you go for the medical or ATPL tests you are locked-in, the airline submits your application.

To save time, on your first visit you will be asked to take at least one of those in addition to the assesment SIM, which pretty much rules out parallel applications.

It might be possible to change later IF your handler manages to agree on it with them (not to join), or their interest is lost.
