Hey folks, I was just wondering if 1500hr/ATPL (all from instructing), class 1 medical, with dual citizenship, multi Ifr, no type rating or a degree will qualify me as an F/O? I have an ICAO TCCA only.

No type, No job

No. There is a misconception that since Cebu Pacific is a low cost carrier in the Philippines that they are desperate and will accept anyone. That simply is not true. They have a stack of very high time Captains, that have retired at age 55 from the Major airlines, and are looking to finish up in a great country and enjoying the diversity that is not available in many places. On the other side, due to the expansion, Cebu offers the chance for an FO with some good experience ( 1500 hours instructing doesn't fit the bill ), to become a Captain in short time. Now before you equate "short time" with low experience, that simply is not true either. There is no free ride here, that is for sure. The work is hard and the rewards are what they are.

Good luck!

To Jaz.

Thanks for the prompt response. So basically it all boils down to quality hrs over quantity, and not the fact that I lack a college degree? I guest my next question is, if I were to accumulate hrs from lets say a 1900 or any turbo prop A/C will I then be considered? Any advice would be wonderful. Thanks!

Get some multi experience, show some good attitude, and you would likely get in as an Atr f.o.

Hi Adam,
Just wondering, are you a filipino dual citizen??
I dont see why you wouldn't have a shot as an ATR FO. I currently am an ATR FO for 5J & I managed to get in on 1000 hrs, all from instructing, on C152's & Piper's I might add. I had a CPL, with multi ifr, & before this, was unemployed for 2 years.
Exactly this time last year, I just started my type rating in BKK. A year later, I'm thankful everyday & still can't believe where I am now!
If anything, maybe have a little bit of twin time on you first.
My sim partner got in on 500, & even though he struggled a little bit more, he still managed to get through all the training.

As long as you show you have the commitment, know your stuff, & show that you have the skills as well, I don't see why you wouldn't be able to get in. I have heard our chief can be a little tough on the sim check, but still a really nice guy!
As far as I know the next FO intake on the ATR won't be until next year, as they are focusing on cpt's at the moment, but whatever you decide to do, good luck with it all!!

Recruitment

Mr.M,

Cebu just doesn't respond to emails. The girl in the office gets hundreds, yes hundred of emails enquiring about jobs and her attitude just doesn't lend itself to respond. What's the current situation?

All the expats have been given a termination notice of 90 days. Most have been given the option of signing back up under local terms but as we know, that really doesn't cut it as we aren't local, our families don't live here, and they are also taking away the commuting roster so you'll only have 15 days a year in which to visit your parents and friends even if you can talk your wife and children to come over and live "local" style. This mean no A/C and riding the jeepney since your pay as a Captain, after you pay taxes will be less than 5K USD per month. ( try maintaining two household on that ) Plus, unlike a local, you are working at the graces of the visa people and that is hit and miss. you will have to get your own local license, no more validation. If you're starting out as an FO, now that is a good deal. If you have any time whatsoever you can probably plan on the left seat in less than a year. This is according to some guys that were recently hired. the level of experience here is very low so when you do make the left seat, your skill level will rise very quickly since you'll be flying a 320 solo. The FO's are trained as well as possible but we all know that you can't learn flying from a book. If you email the HR dept, don't expect a reply and you won't be disappointed. You really need to know someone. So, in a nut shell, the management, mainly Mr. Mark B, has decided that Cebu can get highly experienced Captains, to fly brutal schedules, with FO's that have a few hundred hours of flight time and don't want to be told anything by an expat Capt. And for that, you'll get paid 5K per month. Oh, and one final tid bit. you're only allowed to have 8 days off per month maximum since the pilots shouldn't have more time off than the office workers. So, during the busy times, if you're pushing the 100 hour limit, rostering will DH you to a city 45 minutes away and have you sit for 3 hours and then fly the trip back. Just to make sure you don't get an extra day off to rest.It's a great job for an inexperienced pilot to build time and upgrade rapidly. The people you work with are fantastic. But, it's rough duty and not for the light hearted. Good luck!

On the road again

Cessna95, you're not trying to pin point down who I am are you??? haaaaa

Anyway, all the expats, with the exception of the few FO's that are taking the local upgrade deal, or is it just one, I'm not sure, have been given December 19 as the Adios date. A few of us are completing the current contract in November. So, as of December 20, I don't think you're going to see too many expats with the exception of the new guys that just got hired under local terms and the one or two that upgraded. But, I left out the very best part till last....

As part of the new Pilot code of conduct, you must be contactable on your days off. You must ask for written permission to leave your base, for example, you have 2 days off and you want to run up to Hong Kong.

If Cebu calls you for a trip on your day off you cannot refuse! Yes! There you have it ladies. The very best, kept for last. All days off are considered stand-by days. How's that for a finely oiled machine.

Re-Pilot Code of Conduct

This is another very cheap strategy of some people in the management who do not have any idea of how "discipline" works. These few people who did not have any training on "DISCIPLINE" seem to equate it with "punishment" only. "Morale and welfare" is just a part of it but if this is blatantly violated, it will have a dire consequences with the company...

If anyone remember the "brown-outs" or "black-outs" before, it might happen again...

Assuming that I'll be called to fly on my days-off with your company, "I WILL DO IT WITHOUT ANY HESITATION OR HARD FEELINGS"...Really!!! It's a matter of "Professionalism".

As long as the company will clear me to fly with a .04% alcohol level.

Isn't this old news? Has more to do with delays out of Manila than anything else.

"Isn't this old news? Has more to do with delays out of Manila than anything else."

Hmmmmm, I'm just trying to figure out what, the recent "code of conduct" which includes the requirement to receive written permission to leave your base and the requirement to be available to work on all days off, has to do with delays out of Manila.

Skymaster, could you enlighten me please? Or are you just making a light of a very serious situation. I'm confused. Really.

That policy has been in effect for months, not recent as you are trying to allude.

Ahhh, now I understand how having to work on days off correlate with traffic delays out of Manila. Thanks for setting that straight. And if you regard September as months well I can certainly accept that also. Don't worry sky master, all the experienced expats will be gone very soon and you and the rest of the locals will have Cebu Pacific all to yourselves. Good luck my friend. It's been an enlightening and at times, enjoyable experience.

Skymaster. I hope you realize I'm having a bit of fun with you. The experience in the Philippines is one I will treasure as you and the rest of the pilots have been gentlemen and shown us expats the highest degree of respect and comradeship. My bit of negativity is directed toward Mr Mark who has so little regard for the pilot force.I have been and always will be a big fan of the Filipino pilots that are the driving force behind Cebu Pacific (and not to mention the excellent location of the simulator). As new expats join the ranks to gain experience, I hope you enjoy the same excellent philippine experience as we outgoing expats enjoyed.

Then follow your gut, my Airbus fan! You couldn't find a better place to gain some excellent experience with a bunch of great pilots. Not to mention trying not to fall in love every day....
