Not blaming anyone but here lies the issue of willing takers. B2N2 said it, you took the bait, despite the low pay, whether or not you moved on as quickly as you could.
It would be nice if there's no taker on this but I wont hold my breath on this one.

I believe Susi Air in Indonesia pay Expats about $800 USD/month for entry level position, and after that the salary goes to $1,200/month (these might be old numbers). I stumbled across an interesting BBC series on YouTube about flying for this company. It follows the recruiting pathway for the new recruits as they qualify for a co-pilot position on a Cessna Caravan. From there they can move up to single pilot on a Porter. They get many Expats from the UK with 200-ish hours and a basic license just looking to get some hours together so they can aim for an airline job.

Choosing between an underpaid job and choosing not to pursue your chosen career is not really a choice now is it?
There will never be a shortage of inexperienced FOís.
We should consider ourselves lucky if low paid jobs were the only problem in aviation.
Susi Air provides housing and meals by the way and in certain countries you can still live like a king with $1000 to spend each month.
Something the local population wouldnít have in a year.
Canít really pay off a loan with those kinds of wages but a too expensive loan for a too expensive course back in Europe is not really your employers problem is it?
Yes I like playing devils advocate at times but entitlement is a disease.

Consider other factors in this "offer". If you take it, you are responsible to pay for your medical, your work permit and all associated cost that comes with the license conversion. Another tidbit they won't tell you is you won't be paid while in training or while you get your initial operating experience on the line, except for a tiny "training allowance" which is only P20,000/month. And with the scheduling this could take 6 plus months.

So with the initial outlay of cash by the pilot (figure about $4k US) and only earning about $400 US a month for the first 6 months (that's if they actually pay you on time, which is rare) a prospective pilot is in negative before he ever realizes and productivity pay.

And don't forget the training bond. Yep, the new pilot will sign a training bond for three years (or more) for about 10 times more than the training received.

The pay might be low... But Cebu has better secondary benefits than most legacy carriers in Europe!

And what would those "secondary benefits" be at CP that would make the low pay worth it? And don't forget the awful scheduling, the abysmal training and overall disrespect of the company towards employees.

IT depends on what you want to "procure" each month...

Standard living is fine at that rate, more than fine....

Even £500 is perfect for a good life...I can survive on £200 with a little care.

Sure, try that in Manila.

Maybe out in the Province if you like living like the locals.
