Hi everyone,
I have applied for the direct entry SO position about a week ago...does anyone know how long it will take for them to reply after the initial application is filled in?
Thanks for the help.
Cheers.

the SO position in SQ is a training position. SOs are folk that are in line training to become FOs. The SO training period is about 6 months NOW depending on fleet, instructor supply and training sectors available.

Has anyone who has been contacted for an interview had only turboprop time? I have 6600 hours total with about 2500 of that as Q400 PIC, 4000 Q400 total. Been PFO'd twice, but I'm still curious to know if anyone has gone without a jet type-rating.

Thanks

pay is between 9000- 11000 net, depends on the fleet, layover and allowance.
If you are with silk air then expect it to be on the lower side whereas the best fleet for lifestyle and pay are the A380 and A350

and No you do not pay for your interview, they provide you with tickets and hotel. All you need to pay is for the class 1 medical. The SIA medical will be taken care.

During my interview I asked them this question. The answer was, they will upgrade expats. The minimum time to be considered is 5 years, but most likely 7 to 10 years.

1. Holds a valid CPL/MEIR with frozen ATPL or ATPL (recognized or can be validated by CAAS).


I had overlooked this until now and wonder the same. Since ICAO is the least common denominator, I would assume it can be validated by CAAS.
