Bamboo air

Has anyone applied to this company? What is the real deal. I heard they had “quick interview & no sim check” is that true. Is that even a standard?

How much are they paying, commuting roster right?

My friend just passed me all the info, but looks like they don't have 737 aircraft.
any info would be helpful. Thanks

Hi friends,
I am thinking to apply here as DEC on A320. Can anyone be kind enough to let me know about the online exam contents and what type of questions do they ask during Skype interview. Any other details concerning the airline or its working can be shared too. Information can be in boxed.
Thanks a lot for help.

I don't get it with regard to the crazy recruitment of foreign pilots, they only have a couple of VN reg aircraft, the rest are wet leased from Turkey

And there is a LOT of local pilots from VNA and Vietjet applied and been accepted to go there, it's a good deal for them, not so much for the expats.

All you guys getting excited about applying there, I suggest you get ready for a long wait, because they simply don't have the planes yet and there's plenty of guys already in the queue to fly them.

As usual doom monger Luke to the rescue, yes they need pilots. They did away with the sim process due to the ex vna instructors there failing lots in the sim.

The aircraft are not here yet but they will be coming and they need crewing.

Bamboo airways, atrans, baa in vietnam

The atrans is posting bamboo airways cadet program. They establish BAA vietnam to send their customer to lithuania.

people got training from lithuania are waiting to enter bamboo airways more than year.

Also their a320 type rating didn't accept any other country except vietnam.

So i think atrans, baa in vietnam, baa in lithuania all of them are great scammer in aviation world.

What do you think about it?

Yes it’s true. Don’t approach the ATRANS.
Especially, Tony is the worst scammer.

Tony and his mob were kicked out of Vietjet and now they are in Bamboo, it tells you the nature of this outfit if this corrupt gang was allowed in... avoid

I have heard that Bamboo offered 787 First Officers and Captains confirmed starting dates and then cancelled the job offer with no notice. This was after people signed contracts and gave up their current positions. They are now at home, unemployed and left searching for other employment because Bamboo will not commit to any new start dates.
Any truth to this?

On planet "SIGNED CONTRACT" I suppose.

Who the agency, Rishworth or Brookfield? Just left you high and dry, then consider using another agency as VNA is looking for Capt/Fo On the B787.

Currently there 45 pilot waiting for their CAAV Licence for the A320 fleet and those waiting haven’t been paid yet for over 2 months.

not reliable company , you get accepted ,you go there on your own and no accommodations and no airplanes
and you end up with no job no salary

This is all sounding a bit dodgy to me. Maybe best to avoid the bamboo!
