I heard that they donít even consider the ATR42 and ATR72 as common types either.

Just asking for a "friend"...
You're right to try to discourage people but they're desperate. Half of the World's Pilot community are out of work. There are a lot of people who would do this job for nothing right now, and I really mean a lot.

Things will improve and maybe Bamboo will lose Pilots in the future but that's several years away.

Latest news is that Bamboo will pay quarantine and air tickets.
Average salary is 6k usd at the moment. Flying 30-40h. That means when things start moving expecetd salary would be around 10k.
If you know a better option please share unless you prefer moarning on PPRuNe instead of flying.

👍👍👍👍 T

hanks for the update. I also heard that they will cover your accommodation is that true?

Btw the guys who are flying there say the unpaid salary issue has been resolved. Can anyone confirm?

I heard they are in a lockdown right now in Vietnam.

Accommodation is not covered. I can't say about the rest as I don't have that information.

Just got some information that tax is 35% in Vietnam for if your a resident v.. With 5 weeks on and 1 week off AND no international flights you will definately stay more then 183 days in Vietnam..

I wonder how the guys are surviving there with this kind of a pay package?

The tax is not really 35% (deduction on the gross of $478/month and $191 per dep). It works with brackets:
$217 taxed at 5%
$217 at 10%
$348 at 15%
$608 at 20%
$869 at 25%
$1,217 at 30%
Above $3,476 at 35%

The good new is that it's not likely that you will reach the middle bracket these times: Salaries are indexed on flight hours.
As it is now the cap from CAAV on airlines flights is as this: Vietnam Airlines can operate 28 flights/day, Vietjet 20, Pacific 3, Bamboo 11 and Vietravel 1. I let you count how many pilots are required to fly that.

No salary until you start flying on line. And I know of some colleagues who were Ďhiredí in March 2021 with signed contracts and have yet not done their sim assessments !! Getting into VN physically is something of a dream for them at this point in time. And AFTER they get into VN they will have at least 4-6 weeks minimum before they can even think of touching a real airplane ( quarantine, ground classes, medicals, practicals etc etc ).
Easily expect November before they are online. Thatís a cool but frustrating 9 months from date of hire to first salary cheque!!
And that too a drastically reduced salary. Less than 60% of the pre pandemic levels.
If you ask me personally, stay away for now. Once contracted you will be tied down for 3 years minimum.
Lots and lots of great opportunities just around the corner. Just wait for a bit Ö

Thatís what I was trying to convey to another poster.
Either itís all a data gathering exercise, or theyíve just gotten a windfall of cheap Vietnamese available pilots or itís simply bogus.
Eitherways, too much for too little !

Bamboo extending recency to 24 months????

Anyone have any info about wether CAAV are now accepting pilots with last flight within 24 months? I see FCL are advertising this for BAMBOO - very interested to know if pilots like us that have been grounded since Covid have a chance - or is it just click bait!!!?????

Yes is the short answer.

VNA are bringing back some 350 guys, so there must be a procedure. They were already on contract though.
