Yeah... but does the cost include the Multi Engine Turbine Sea Plane Type Rating?

If not perhaps Mommy and Daddy may reconsider spending that kind of money for their children so they can fly a real plane instead of Microsoft Flight Simulator.

Don't forget the watches that need a crane to lift.

Who knows maybe Mommy and Daddy will have had enough and put their foot down.

Le the rug rats find their own way into the world like the rest of us had to.

Dont bother with Indonesia... the next place for P2F ego's, lay ban's and big watches to match inferior manhoods oops flying is Sri Lanka.. on the a320 for cheap price between 60-75K EURO... depending on your poison.,,

Even the Maldives is now a p2F haven...

See you there..

Citilink

All the pilots that are still coming to do their line training are all going to Citilink on the A320 thru avia Integrated.
Last week, citilink itself had an open day for pilots (local and Foreigners)
Many people attended and 20 were selected, all with zero hours.
Indonesian needs a lot of pilots and everybody knows that this 250h rules is just a bluff.

To be precise... those children who had mommies and daddies who eligible for the fleecing were chosen.

Well, it was only a matter of time before the rule was lifted. It never made sense in the first place, not with the demand Indonesia has.

If you pay peanuts you get monkeys, now they want the monkeys to bring their own peanuts. And they will come and make the news.

250 hour rule.

The rule was introduced to stop one particular airline sourcing pilots on a P2F scheme. The other hurdle in place now is if you are a foreigner, to get a licence validation in Indonesia. To achieve this you have to have an interview with the Head of Flight Crew Licencing who must deem you to be of "good character".

There are a other few things that will have your application (or interview) stopped in its tracks now.

1. Having a licence issued in the Philippines.
2. Having an Indian passport.
3. Not having 250 hours on type.

If you already work for another company in Indonesia flying whatever, the 250 hour ruled seems to be negotiable. If you aren't already flying here see points 1,2 and 3.

I am one of the pilots whose presence in Jakarta led to this thread being started. I have been watching it with amusement for the last few days, but decided to step in at this point because some of the claims being made are ridiculous.

The 250 hour rule is still alive and well, and that fact does not look likely to change anytime soon.

My colleagues and I were recruited - and more importantly, had submitted our paperwork - before the new rule was announced. Because of this, we were granted a one-time exception. We're the last zero-hour foreigners to start flying in Indonesia, at least for the foreseeable future.

The Citilink "Open Day" described above was Parc/Rishworth pilots who've been pushed out of Mandala heading to Citilink en masse asking if they could have a job there. They all had hours. I don't know if Citilink hired any of them, but I am led to believe the answer to that one is "no".
