There are several ACMI pilots that live in the Philippines. They commute on freighters, get alternate travel or non rev. All the ones I know are gentlemen and donít play cards or chase women. You could also get on with a Canadian airline and get your command, then fly overseas with an Asian carrier and base yourself in Fils. I know of a few of those fellers as well. I think Canadia is a lot like the US, where a university degree is highly desired(74% of American ATP holders) have one. There are a lot of Filipinos flying overseas, if that tells you anything about the terms and conditions offered by Filipino airlines.

Try it

They've accepted some guys that had CPL overseas. Just send them your resume and hope for the best. It does take the some time to process though.

I think there is a lot to be said about the terms and conditions set for pilot jobs in The Philippines.
It seems to be consistent with opportunities as a whole. A lot of underemployed and unemployed.
I think the ones who choose to stay at home probably prioritize being around family, home and a culture that they are at one with.

Does anyone have any examples of this personally? Maybe shine a different light on this/uncover anything that might make the choice of staying or leaving apparent?

Will flying experience or work/life experience sway the view of having a university degree or not?

With CAAP it could be an eternity or a week.
The best way to facilitate the process would be to follow up with them on a regular basis personally.
2 months would be a reasonable expectation if they are organized.
