Not hard, lots of interviews happening lately as more pilots will live for better paid jobs next year and some locals going over to starlux for less work and extra 1000$+ a month. this is the time to join.

yes, but if you pass in your home country you probably can pass theirs too, maybe get a weight loss note or reduce cholesterol and retake blood sample at your home country and send the results back. Other than that still lots of tests but nothing new

Im glad to know. I guess its practical to apply for Eva. I heard starlux needs an endorsement system. so you had to reach out to pilots who are connected to them.

i am not aware of how starlux gets its pilots but like you said what i hear in the cockpit is "my friend went there, my classmate went there" and commonly all agree they go there because the extra money is a no brainer.

The other day there was a huge amount of ground personnel (like a year or so) that left for better salaries at starlux. some locals nearing the end of their training bond are considering jumping to starlux and some senior expat capts opted to retire earlier and fly somewhere else like USA, the younger ones like FOs even those close to their upgrade are applying for other airlines with better pay or processing their EB2.

It is a good time to apply in EVA as they know there are more planes coming and more pilots leaving, specially after the failed "raise" this December.

hello... whats the working environment like? i heard the training atmosphere not so pleasant and very hostile. many expats left halfway during training. especially with the job market opening up and more choices.

Initial training is demanding, it seams as if its designed to push your keys and see how will you behave under pressure, (they don't want a first officer braking a fight mid flight) don't get me wrong, everything is done with professionalism, but expect them to put a little psicological pressure to check how will you react. you have to read and know where to find the information and understand it, it is not a memory game for sure, maybe a few will ask detailed questions but it is not punitive if you don't know the answer as long as you have an idea and where to find it.

A key difference here is that your sim sessions are more like you demonstrating that you know what is being practiced rather than them teaching you from zero. let's say you are practicing balked landings, they expect you to know why it happens and how to recover (the procedure) and on the sim you just demonstrate that, if it isn't perfect there is a tolerance of course and they will probably check your knowledge about it and repeat it next session.

So training difficulty is relative to your level of preparedness and your attitude towards your erros and how you recover from them and accept critics or comments(all your sessions will have comments and things to improve no matter how perfect you think you have done it). if i were to give you and advice is do whatever your sim instructor tells you to do, don't argue and just take notes and do as they tell you, doesn't matter if the previous one told you different, remember your qualification depends on the one sitting in front of you.

be always respectful and professional, prepare yourself and if you commit errors during training (simulator o flight) it is almost always fixable for your next session/flight.

Flight training is more relaxed and less questions, just do your normal procedures as smooth as you can and practice atc if you can due some strong accents a little hard to understand like BKK

Thanks for the info. You seems to be happy flying there. But with more jobs opportunities, I hope it will be better for the pilots.

Questions for the ATPL exam are taken from ATP PrepWare.

Check out the aviation news in HK for the last one week. It seems HK will be a fierce competition to Taiwan for pilots recruitment market. Dont forget HK flying licence is ICAO recognised. Exciting times ahead 2023 !

Hey! I will be heading in 2 weeks to TPE for the screening. Can anyone recommend any reliable source for preparation (Pprune should be one for sure). It seems like LPJ is overrated in this subject since questions are taken from ATP PrepWare. Is the group excercise still taking place? I am quite excited and anxious since it will be my first interview after 5 years. Any tips are much appreciated!
