Anyone know the ballpark salary? Lifestyle? Thanks

Not looking for obvious advices ..
It literally states on the link. You can apply as long as the CAAS recognises the licences.

Donít expect to be a preference however.

Hello guys,

Any factual info on salary? Latest knowledge from trustworthy sources?

Anyone here know more info about the interview process in itself (theoretical and practical components)?

Thanks!

These days, just to get called to the interview is a big deal. I wouldnt worry about T&C at the moment.
Did any one get a call so far ?

You are joking right? I have been employed for almost a year and turn away offers every week.
There are more jobs than you can shake a stick at; if you're a qualified Captain with a reasonable license.

Seeing this is a thread for FO hiring, why don't you take your 4 bars and big ego somewhere else?

For those who cleared all the stages and medical before covid but not yet signed the contract, did you re apply and got any call?

Will SIA give any preference or priority to those who already went through the stages and passes pre covid?

Pre covid I cleared all the DeSo stages and have now re applied isnthere any one same?

Recently lots of clowns got out of the circus tent.

Good luck to those who will give a try at SIA.

Newbie out of flight school meeting the bare minimum for DESO here.

Probability of considered even for an interview is near 0 but I want to submit my application anyway.

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

I live in New Zealand, would my CPL and frozen ATPL be recognized? or do I have to say "no" in the application? I'm trying to look for answers everywhere but can't find the information.

Yes New Zealand CPL is recognized. Only after you pass the interview and simulator assessment they will advise you on the license conversion.

Remember the absolute min requirement for DESO is a CPL with MEIR so you do meet meet requirements however I am not sure if they will call those with some hrs first.

Thank you so much for your response. I have just the bare minimum with 250 total flight hours and 102 PIC including MEIR and ATPL credits. No harm in applying right?

I know of people who've gotten in with the absolute minimum hours. So i wouldn't worry too much about that. As long as your license is ICAO recognized, you'll be fine. CPL and frozen ATPL is also recognized, although just like any other country, you'll have to do some exams for license conversion.

Wow really? Do you know how they prepared for the assessment? The most I'm worried about is the sim assessment because I have few hours hands on experience only on the A320 sim. Only real way I can practice currently is on microsoft simulator using a joystick... There aren't any jet simulators in my town.

Interview- be yourself
Sim assessment- it's all manual flying , right now best thing you can do is practice on flight sim.

But more important is to get invited first. Then only I would be worried about the rest.

Also guys anyone knows if you need to have a valid IR within 6 months for the license conversion? I think its a new requirement I Maybe wrong tho.

Yeah, I agree. Shouldn't get my self all hyped up without an invite first. Thank you for the replies though. Really appreciate it.

Honestly just be yourself because that's what they're looking for. Different airlines look for different personalities as much as they argue that pilots are all the same. It's more geared at seeing whether you fit with the company culture.

Yeah the just practice on the sim because you won't have a clue what sim you're doing until you do it.

But you are right, just worry about one bit at a time. Not to be too pessimistic or anything, the rejection rate is very high for SQ. If you haven't already done so, go have a look a bit more in depth about SQ with regards to lifestyle, pay, living in SG etc. There's a lot to consider other than just the job.
