There have never been any foreign sim instructors at CSN. Its easy to count as we have never had one. Confirmed.

By and large its a a very good job, it would be the best job in the world if they sorted out some kind of understanding with pilots over how the contract functions after medical failure.

Me neither , I did a type rating with CSA and have never seen a foreign pilot sim instructor.
Something doesn’t add up here.
I’m sure that among current pilots at CSA we have no instructors for sim or line.
Gullibell, prior your stint at CSA did you have much experience as a sim instructor?

Back on subject.. I believe the medical/sickness issues have claimed another victim, is it true someone has now been fined 600 dollars a day under the sickness clause or not?

Yes totally true. Unbelievable isnt it!!!!

He landed in his home country with blood coming out of his ear.
DR said absolutely no flying for a month. This was reported to the fleet and accepted.

He didn't receive salary for that month as no flying. Kind of understandable I guess as we are contract pilots.

BUT then he returns to Guangzhou to be told he is being fined 600$ a day extra as company doctor doesn't agree with the Dr he saw in his home country. Absolutely unbelievable.

So getting sick in a country away from China cost him about 40k!!!

Yes you read that right. Double salary loss for 1 month away from flying.

It really is disgusting.
Do your research I guess before you come here. If we knew this was how they would interpret the contract then a lot of us would never have joined.

If you still want to take the risk then that's up to you of course. If so then see you down here.

Cheers,

... isn't that part of the mandatory information your agency must provide? Or they just suck your money without representing your basic interest?

Another one today. Organised leave to visit his sick father, approved without a problem and this guy is careful. Father sadly passed. Comes back and finds out that hes not being paid for the month (fair enough) but also being fined 16k for being absent. This can only be explained by management wanting us gone... as in all of us I think...
