There is a Caravan operator based in Hanoi Noi Bai called Hai Au Aviation. They fly tourists to Halong Bay and I mostly hear American accents on their transmissions.

Also, there used to be a Caravan operation between Hua Hin (Gulf of Thailand) and Rayong (opposite side of the Gulf, next to Pattaya Sin City), sometimes you could spot them in Bangkok Don Mueang.

Hai Au want high-time float captains. Quite some difference between them and Susi. Dimonim in West Papua also operate caravans - no idea about employment conditions for either. You sure those arenít Canadian accents?

Let me help you with that. Almost 2 months ago now, I walked out on Dimonim, owed 2 months wages. Currently I have not received a cent of pay for 4 months. Additionally, I am owed 2-3x that in holiday accruals, which I know Iíll never see. Mine are not the worst circumstances within Dimonim.

By all means, throw your hat in the ring. Theyíll fall all over themselves to get you in a seat. Theyíre desperate for drivers. Even they donít realise how desperate they are for Competent drivers. Just donít expect to see the money you have earned.

Thanks RS, always good to warn others and prevent the circle of exploitation.

Driving near VTBS today I've seen a caravan taking off. Couldn't make any markings or rego so I can't point you in any direction but definitely there is a Caravan gig there.

Amazing how that box can fly...

What their excuse for not paying you? Financial difficulties? Are they in trouble and will close the company soon?
Usually when the company don't pay the wages, it is soon closing.
Or maybe they wanted you out ?
They might have to eliminate the foreigners to make place for the new indonesian graduates. Many are looking for a job.
I read that Susi Air is taking some nowadays. It used to be 99% foreigners flying there.
