Finally, to prepare for the Program, we kindly inform that the training course cost is: USD 87,000 which include: Ground School (including OPC), Base check, Initial Operating Experience (IOE) . The training would be last 6 months, you will have basic salary and allowance for flying during IOE. After finished IOE, you would have ~200 hours on A32F and be released as FO lvl 4.

< 500hrs: FO lvl4

500hrs – 1000hrs: FO lvl3

1000hrs – 1500hrs: FO lvl2

>1500hrs: FO lvl1


Why do we have to pay this much for the cadet program and I don't think the TR is included? Because part of the requirement is to already have the A320 TR...
If anyone have gone through the process or have any knowledge regarding this, please let me know, thanks!

I applied to the Bamboo Cadet program, already having a A320 type rating. Passed the exam, all thrilled and happy and looking forward to the interview. After completing and passing the interview I get the information that they require 87000usd.. I get a 5% discount if I pay full amount in one payment😅🤣..

So I kindly mention that this money is not mentioned in the application or anywhere online. Then I kindly ask them to specify what I'm paying 87000usd for. Response "uhhm, uhh.. ground school, conversation uhhm uhh"

Its ridiculous.. It's basically a scam

Look at the VietJet thread for what you can expect. I can guarantee you the final price (assuming the whole thing isn't a fraud from the start), will end up being way more than 87,000 usd.

There are a lot of very shady and dubious people operating in the shadows of these SE Asian airlines like VietJet and Bamboo trying to get rich off you. Be careful.

And with Coronovirus smashing the airline industry hard, be even more careful.

Flying with VietJet's "Pay-to-Fly Pilots"... thoughts?

If you ever know this 87,000$ if you have all the licenses and the type rating as well😂

The one which is advertised in this thread is a cadet program from the beginning if you don’t have any license and it costs 220,000$😂
