Fly by night with few if any pilots. Parc or Wasinc only for China.

It seems like Vietnam Air is looking for pilots again, both Rishworth and Parc are doing the contracting. Does anyone have any updates? QOL, etc.

Again Vietnam Airlines.. anyone fill us in on the A330 layover routes flown?
I hear some experienced F/Os are upgraded to capt from 330 to 320 after 2-4 years?

Been dealing with Rishworth through the screening process at CSA they have been Great - Made a point of flying a rep out to China and assist through the process and help with the language barriers.

They have been responding to emails quickly and trying to assist in all ways possible.

So far I have been pleased.

Yeah, Rish$#%^th is great during recruiting, that is where they spend their money, and that is how they get pilots. They put no money in support, and they are a bunch of lying lawyers. That is how they lose pilots, including me.

Any experiences with IASCO?

They are advertising a lot of Chinese jobs, but I don't know much about them.

Just started my second contract at KAL through CCL. In my opinion, they went from first to worst. Pay still arrives on time, but monthly pay falls way short of what my fellow pilots are getting from their contractors. In addition, my two classmates both received a $3000 signing bonus for the second contract (two different contract companies) that CCL refuses to match. So not only am I making less per month than my fellow pilots, I'm out of the signing bonus as well.

When I advised them of the pay disparity between them and the other agencies, they basically called me a liar and said I should be happy to be with CCL, since so many pilots want to be represented by them.

I too used to recommend CCL, but never again.

So is the consensus that Parc is the best one for Korean contracts?

Just got the offer from KAL non type rated captain A330. I hold a Canadian ATPL. Any recommendation as who to contact for training in Canada? I need to organize my own CCQ 320 to 330 training and I get zero support from Rishworth for that matter. They were mentioning on their website that they would provide assistance in finding a TRTO to organize the training but so far they haven't helped at all.

Note that many sim centers do training approved by other countries. Some places in the US and ME, for example, may well be able to do a Transport Canada program. It's worth checking on, at least.

I am 15 years with Rishworth as B777 captain for Korean Air and I can' t complain too much. At some point my contract conditions were one of the best for contract pilots with KAL, now they are average but they were never worst one. When I need something from them I can get response straight forward and normally they are really helpful.

Have worked with a number of recruiters and only had a problem with PARC prior to its partnership with CAE. However, i dont believe it was entirely a PARC issue as much as the individual running the office. (since fired)

Iasco however, is in a whole different league from the rest. Superb support and great individuals.

Highly recommend them.

Hi everybody. I have a question regarding VNA and the different agencies. One of them is requiring exclusively hours on type to be made on 320/321 while others do not specify this criteria. Is this a requirement by VNA ? I am only flying the 319 and it looks like to be accepted by some agencies but not by rishworth as specified in their job description...any info on that ? Thanks a lot.

Hi. I am interested in Canadian Tax implications with either China Southern reverse YVR base or Korean Airlines. If there are any Canucks here that are in the know, would you mind PM'ing me or posting your work-around for this?

Thanks in advance
