Training time depends on many variables. They probably quote 6-7 months which can be less if type rated or JCAB licenced. However some variable can extend this time. Everyone has a slightly different experience.

This can only be good news.

What would be VERY intersting (considering they need new crews) is to see if they will ever come up with a possible move for a (foreign) Peach pilot to mainline ANA...

Think so too, but never say never! They'll have to come up with something if they want to expand..

With the merge of Peach and Vanilla will it be any update on the conditions on offer? How is the environment/moral at Peach nowadays?

They were hiring and would expect them to continue... I am not at Peach but have know 4 people who went there... All 4 were USA Regional CRJ guys, the 3 NTR that held JCAB ATPL with time in Japan made it thru... The Non JCAB NTR guy did not make it... That being said having been in Japan 8+ and having friends that have gone to other Japanese Carriers I would say NTR/Non JCAB people would have less than 50% chance of being "Successful" at completing training... The exception being Air Japan... I could never recommend someone with a job coming to Japan on a NTR program, if unemployed sure but leaving a job NO... Just my 02 jpy... Best of luck in the job hunt...

Well, I came to Japan as a NTR, DEC...., it is a different training philosophy for sure but not that difficult quite frankly, It is a matter of adjusting yourself to be an actor on a play, people tend to try to perfect the movements and facial expressions when they should be concentrating in knowing the script by heart.

Pretty much the same thing as to why folks get in trouble during training, they want to fly the SIM within 10 feet and be on speed within 5 knots on the second SIM when they should be concentrating at your fullest on the SOP's and calls, if you blow the altitude by 100 feet but they see that you are making an effort into getting all your calls and SOP's just right, they are not worried about you not flying the SIM to precision because they are going to give you tonnes of SIM sessions to get your flying correct, but if by SIM 3-4 you are not getting those calls and procedures correctly, it doesn't matter that you fly the SIM better than the A/P, what they are thinking is not "Wow, he does fly the SIM well" what they are thinking is, "Hum, he is having difficulty with our way"

That is mostly the biggest issue people have, the other one is attitude, If you are the type that is constantly pointing out the way you did it at brand X and asking Why is it done that way here, Japan is not for you.

Order of 2 A321Neo LR's

https://airwaysmag.com/airlines/farnborough-airbus-signs-with-peach-aviation-for-2-a321lrs/

Also, T&C's further improved with the intro of bonuses. Sigma is the agency advertising positions.

Any thoughts?

Cheers,

Booze

Bonus ( subject to profit ) has been part of the contract from the beginning. No recent changes. The agencies are only finders! All pilots are employed by the Airline under the same T & C.

I see, thanks. Must've glanced over the bonus in the previous info pack, then.

Hi guys, a very straight question: Is it worth leaving a stable job in Europe to move to Peach Aviation considering the company environment, terms and conditions and life style?

I'm considering them because I'd like to explore a different Country and Continent together with the opportunity to fly a different aircraft type. My wife would come there and she'd like to find a job in Japan.
What I'm afraid of is the rough way to the end of training, I mean, I don't avoid challenges in this career but I would avoid non-sense time wasting.

If it is possible to take a leave of absence at your current gig, that would be the best way to venture into something exotic. I'm speaking from experience, when I came to Japan I jumped with both feet and I gave up my seniority number at my carrier, It's my nature to move decisively in any particular direction.

it worked out for me but it could have as easily not worked! Looking back at it, I would have just wait it out and keep my number, specially since I didn't have an immediate need to give it up!

Something to consider.

I would say stay away. I just heard from a friend there that the company has put a freeze on annual leave and that they will be removing the commuting benefit and days off.
