Doesn't SIA have a habit of getting rid of expats once they are no longer required to plug the gaps?

Yes DEFO, I'm currently a Capt on an AT76 so they'd hardly consider me for a DEC position on something like a 330 !!

I was in Singapore at ATR a few years ago doing a sim course for 3 weeks and yes, the cost of things was eye watering and I can imagine housing, car etc. being astronomical !!

Anyway, I will go to their interview/sim check for the hell of it and see how I go and what they are offering! I can always stay here in the LHS of my powerful ATR anyway

Thanks for the replies!

Hi Gear Down and Locked,

Any idea which fleet they will be hiring DECs for? I can hopefully wait till 2019/20. Many thanks for any information.

Cheers,

As with most places in the world there are expat pilots for one reason only...

Not enough locals for the job.

It’s probably going to get worse as it becomes a less glamorous job or people don’t have money to pay for the cadetship.

On that is it really a cadetship if paying? SQ still does the proper cadetship yes?

Singapore no more expensive than many world cities, can cost a shit load or be reasonable. All depends on lifestyle, oh unless you have kids!
