Yes, I am a Filipino citizen. I think they are hiring an all-Filipino crew for AA Philippines.

WOW! C-130! Macho-plane! I would love to fly one of those. As far as i know they were planning to operate within September but they are still fixing some papers/permits etc in CAAP as we speak. Their new target date for operation is around October as per the company presentation during the interview.

do any of you realize that they are saying that they will pay more money in Philippines versus Malaysia Pay??? How is this right or possible up to 500k pesos or over 12K usd??? WTF? In KL they are paying max 22K ringgit right. This is less than 8k usd. Wake up smell the TF BS roses ok. If they are paying this for Clark pay then all Malaysian pilots should revolt.............................................
Hi jamestaylor, with all due respect to you, there's no need for the Malaysian pilots to revolt. While its true the Philippine pilots will be paid more than their Malaysian counterparts the net pay for Philippine pilots will be far less than their Malaysian counterparts. This is due to the 32% tax imposed on all their pay.
Allow me to correct your statement that Air Asia Berhad is paying "max 22K ringgit". Its not true. Capts in Air Asia Malaysia get on the average Rm30,000 per month or $10,000 plus Employment Provident Fund of 21% of gross pay. Thus a total of $12,000.
I hope this clarifies the issue.
Thank you.

The latest rumor is, AAP will probably start operation February yet. They are asked by CAAP, around middle of Dec, to do another probing flight and this time, night flying. AAP is the 1st airline required by CAAP to do both day and night probing flight. FAA requirement "kuno". And CAAP scheduled it on the 2nd week of Jan yet. Perhaps, to ensure there is no other competitor airline during the peak holiday season.

POLITICS? It could be. Because, albeit the DG is a cousin of Tonyboy Cojuangco (President of AAP) and PNoy, I heard in the grapevine that DG's son is a student pilot in PAL Aviation School. As to the question if his son is paying or not, that I cannot confirm.

Philippines Air Asia

Any tips on how the interview portion is like for fresh graduate pilots applying this year (2018)?
Especially if they ask technical questions?
