hey!

Just wondering...how is flying? Airbus SOPs, I guess...Are there company SOPs regarding AP flying? Are you allowed to fly Athr, Ap, FD off...? Visual approaches? Is there good crm in the cockpit? And how about the FO position...?

Thanks a lot!!

Why on earth would you want to fly the Airbus without the AP and A/T?

packoverheat 5th May 2008 20:55

sorry, that was'nt too clear... I meant flying without Athr/AP during Take-off, approach (off course, not during cruise...):ok:

thanks

My 2 cents, the flying is fun and relaxed, CRM is good IMO, flight attendants polite and happy, ground staff throughout the system are very accommodating and easy to work with. If you'd like to tune up your skills by flying manually, don't think you will run into any problems. Visual approaches are acceptable per the FOM, and yes we have FO's. :E

Ooops - I got the punctuation wrong....but the question remains...

Why would you want to "fly" the Airbus without the AP and A/T?

;)

Actually....I see from your name that you probably flew a Boeing in a previous life?

Hi guys

Just a quick question here & although it most likely will be read as WTF I have to start somewhere.
I am considering obtaining an A320 endo from Canada in the not too distant future & then seeking work in the Asia Pacific region. Obvioulsy I won't have any time on type just the bare endo.And obviously nobody is born with time on type so any sugestions as to how to start the ball rolling & with whom (if any) would consider employing a F/O with no large jet time other than 600 hrs on L35/36?

TT 6000hrs

Tnxs in advance.

My suggestion is to go to the contractors web sites and look at the qualifications required, as an experienced pilot you would need only about 500 in type to qualify for A320 captain at several locations nowadays, Rishworth Aviation and PARC Aviation have plenty of work in this area, good luck.

from the PARC website.

So, Parc is not looking for A330 F/Os for HCMC any more, but Rishworth does. And as far as I could compare both contracts, they are quite the same - more or less.

I would go there immediately, but I am still in a position here in Europe and I can't get out.
So they seem to be always looking for crews, right? OMG, the next time is for me!

Please, how do you guys over there find accomodation? I guess I wouldn't find one out of the local newspapers...
Is there a list or a info-pool for foreign pilots?
And how do you come to work to the airport? By an own car or rather by train?

What about children? Is anyone there with little children? Does it work fine?

It's a big city, plenty of real estate agents, you could also google for rental property in Hochiminh.

I guess I wouldn't find one out of the local newspapers...


Yes, here's the link.

And how do you come to work to the airport? By an own car or rather by train?


No trains for local transport, mopeds or taxis.
What about children? Is anyone there with little children? Does it work fine?


International schools very expensive, $900 to $1000 per month, per child. As of present, the company isn't making any contribution for tuition, several families living here though, the city is very safe.

Thanks guys I appreciate the lead/s

CW:ok:

stardustcologne 19th May 2008 20:58

You go there?
Anyone here who just started this spring and can tell a bit how it goes?

Well, and thanks to dreamland for the answers...

Pilots who satisfy these requirements and who would be interested in receiving more details on this assignment should send their current CV quoting reference no. FCA320NR to [email protected]. As soon as more details become available, they will sent to those who satisfy these minimum requirements and who have included a CV with their email.
This may sound like a silly question, but what is a CV?

captseth 19th May 2008 23:27

CV = Carriculum Vita.

ImperialxRat 19th May 2008 23:36

Unfortunately that isn't making any sense to me. Is it basically asking for a resume and cover letter?

varigflier 20th May 2008 00:55

Just a resume would be good enough.....;)

squidward 20th May 2008 01:02

don't bother.... Parc have been waiting since January for them to finalise the contract for type rated with no time on type guys
