Hey CJ


I am not at Peach but had 3 friends go there, 2 are still there... Peach has one of the quicker JCAB training programs but is still a bit long... Would expect 4-5 months from start to JCAB Linecheck...


Word is there are new T&Cs but I have no details...


The Agencies do the recruiting and you are actually a direct contractor to Peach not thru the agencies... One recruiter I was having dinner with complained Peach was slow to make selections and pilots would have accepted other offers before Peach said yes...


Friend that just left said Peach has large growth plans but will have staffing issues because they are slow to react to current pilot market... As all Japanese airlines...


Best of luck, lots of hiring...


kampie, JpnCrjdriver

Thank you for this info.
I thought I read somewhere they increased the training pay, but I can' t find it anymore.
Nice to know you get hired with them directly and that training should be around 6 months...let's see if these new conditions are advertised soon.

Are you referring to the old "new " Training pay or the new "new" training pay? Conditions are currently under review for improvement. May no news on this will be filtered through to contract companies for a few months yet.

Ok thanks, time will tell then.

Another thing I can' t really understand is (for someone interested in the long term option) why do the offer a 3 year contract with the option of renewal, and not a permanent contract straight away?
This would be another big risk for someone making the jump. Is this the norm in Japan when working directly for a company (i.e. not through agency as contract pilot).

No offense to guy's trying to get on with Peach, but have you guy's taken a close look at the T&C's? They are growing for sure, but I say again, have you taken a look at what they are offering? These T&C's are definitely in the bottom 4 contracts in Japan along with Vanilla, Spring, and Jetstar. These LCC's treat you like you are a Low-Cost-Pilot, and in addition to the challenges you encounter flying in Japan, the additional amount of BS you have to put up with is NOT worth this crappy contract that they are offering.

Japan has been on a severe decline this past decade, with conditions either not improving at all, or getting worse; despite the shortage of pilots. You know it's bad when Japanese pilots are all trying to flee Japan. Take a look around and I am sure you can find better options.

I understand what you are saying, and a quick example of these better options would be? Somewhere in the middle of China? Middle east?

The shortage at the LCC level in Japan has nothing to do with training timeframe and everything to do with lousy T&C's........!

You need pilots? You need to increase the pay...., plain and simple.

Exactly. Instead, let's plug one little hole in the over-flooding dam by raising the age to 67! Yeah, that'll solve it!

That article doesn't sound like it has anything to do with accelerating the training program for a foreign captain to be inducted into a Japanese airline. Looks more like there is changes occurring to allow Japanese airlines to be a little more independent of the regulator and speed up the time it takes a cadet to progress to command.

Thanks for the link.To be honest I can't see what's changed..120 days off, 5 days sick leave etc.. What exactly has been improved? Pay during training?

I think the total package is up to 14k pm. Wasn't it around 11k before? Anyways, would be nice to see a taxation breakdown on the above...

Any first hand input from anyone on taxation in Japan? What i've found on the net looks rather complicated and unclear...

Complicated and unclear would describe many things in Japan. Expect about 30-35% deducted in various taxes and social charges.
