After Flight School Dillema Philippines

Hey guys,

Just finished flight school around 3 mos ago. 240TT, CPL, MER, IR and FI rated.

I applied to almost all companies and flight schools in the Philippines but no returns. All flight schools have full rosters of flight instructors thatís why itís really hard to find an instructing job.

A question to our successful pilots, what steps did you take after finishing flight school and how long did you wait before you got your first gig? Do I rent and get additional hours? Do I keep on applying? Do I get an additional rating?

Any help in pointing me and a lot more newbie pilots in the right direction would be of great help! Thank you!

Hi ! If you are aiming for the airlines in the Philippines, go for Airbus Type Rating.

This would help if local airlines are simply looking for A320 rating on new applicants. Now, they require at least 1500 on type plus the 320 rating. This is a common practice nowadays with philippine based carriers

Newly released batch this month were fresh from type rating without experience when they were hired.
