I hope the pilots' pay is better than the other local competition. The applicants who were processed are having second thoughts.

Hi

Hi A320 Stabilizer, the pay is slightly better than local competitors, but not substantially higher which can be comparable to Middle Eastern carriers.
What can be guaranteed by AirAsiaPhilippines is you'll have a life & time to spend with your family & time to spend your hardly earned money plus a company that truly understands & compassionate to your needs. Its more of a family than a company.

as far as the pay is concerned it is hoped that it will indeed be better than what is being offered now by other airlines in the phils however the candidates will know about it soon enough when they receive the offer but what is certain is that airasia is still a low cost airline and therefor wl work the pilots to the max possible hours per month or year otherwise they will be losing on manhours and as proven in kul bkk and cgk they really look closely at costs, if you know what that means to staff, not that its a bad thing but just to give some perspective about the line;

What can be guaranteed by AirAsiaPhilippines is you'll have a life & time to spend with your family & time to spend your hardly earned money plus a company that truly understands & compassionate to your needs. Its more of a family than a company
and as for the mid east, yes the pay is higher or used to be quite high depending where u come from but now with the usd falling and the pay in local currency which is fixed to the usd and the exceptionally high cost of living it is no longer as attractive as it was

at the end of the day you decide what you want after taking all the considerations into account

New Pay

Could anyone share to us any info on changes from the previous pay (net of tax)? It's getting cold again here in my outfit and I might reconsider my option to go home this time... If the price is right?

Airphil and seatiger got the pilots it badly needed to startup by making it worthwhile (3M to be exact) for them to leave their former employers. Will a "substantial offer" be suitable for your immediate needs?

Recent Interview

I recently had my interview last tuesday. There were about 25-30 of us there. First was their very "homey" company presentation followed by the interviews. There were three tables, table 1: one Malaysian pilot (i think), table 2: two Malaysian pilots and table 3: a Filipino pilot (already flying with AA based in Malaysia) and a female HR (if i'm not mistaken). We were assigned to different tables. While I was evesdropping on already interviewed pilots I heard that table 1 was more of a relax/outgoing interview, while table 2 was pure tachnical questions (i think more on approach charts, SID's, STAR's instruments, etc.). Well, I was assigned on table 3. Being the "freshest" pilot and having the lowest time, I was asked more about personal stuff and asked me a little about METAR/TAF and asked me to interpret it. After the interviews I stayed for a while and had a chat with some of my fellow applicants. The result will be given within a week, as of what they all told us. No news yet.

@martinque:

When you say you had the lowest hours, what was your total time & experience when you got invited to the interview?

@captbisdak

Sir I have only a total of 190hours mostly on single engine and some on light twin. Compared to my co-applicants who have hundreds if not thousands of flight hours. But I was relieved to find out that they have junior FO's suitable for my experience. (Senior FO: >1500hours with ATPL, FO: >1500hours and Junior FO: fresh grads)
I guess there's nothing wrong in trying. Who knows, God-willing I might be able to make it. No news yet as of today. Any other applicants who have received news already?

Angry Air Asia pay in phil

Hmmmm,

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.............................................
