thanks Stardust ,

i'll stick with Euro pacific as i spoke with one of the guys there, an ex line capt and he seems to know what he was talking about and the fact that i'm talking with someone who use to be in that field makes more sense than talking with some lady in Parc who is in charge of the VAC contract who really doesn't know exactly what you're trying to explain etc.

if a particular broker fits your need guys
like some said earlier,
well then go ahead with that one
but like evrywhere else with this agencies
once you are here
its the same thing
it doesnt matter if you are with any of the 4 agencies
theyll treat you equal
which is
they forget about you being here
oh yes, you get paid on time
but thats it
holidays and tickets and simulator
all of that its with the locals
like any other place
the only thing the agencies whant
is they pice of the cake
as simple as that
oh & by the way shitworth changed its insurance company
its now some insurer called Vero................
they claim its member of ISOS , blablabla
any way thought you should know

Same same Rishworth Aviation. :bored:

jumpdrive 25th May 2008 14:33

they will send 1987276365376543 emails
and 176524 phone calls
...................before you sign !!!!

then


by magic they disappear

same with all agencies, or broker, call it whatever
theyre useless
just get paid the rest is with roster , flight crew division here

if you've been here a while you'll realise how much better Parc is. pretty much everyone will confirm this.

lowering hours requirements
 
Hi guys,
I've been told by one of the contractors that Vietnam may soon lower their total hours requirements for F/O positions, and maybe even increase the pay.
Anyone with more info about all this?

Thanks, and safe flying.

TheFlyingDJ 3rd Jun 2008 11:47

I have been told that too........ in october 2007!
No response, reply or any sound yet.

G'day fellas,
little help sought here.First off, if I could find an engineers thread on pprune I would normally start there,but the fact is I can't find one.

So here goes. I am an avionics lame with a new gen rating currently working at QF and am fed up with this mob. Time to take the plunge and do some connie work.

Could have an opportunity to move to Hanoi shortly with a new startup company running A320's and 737NG'S.

Do any of you talk to aussie/brit expat Lames about thier conditions both at work and in life in general for them in vietnam/hanoi etc. ???

Also keen to find out what some of their wives/girlfriends think about thier move there.

Expat schooling and fees,what is the quality of education like for the littlens ????

Lastly now,taxation in Vietnam,any info at all fellas ???

Thanks all in advance.

Greetings to all,

Concerning the recent upgrades to CAP on the 320, does anyone know what contract agencies the upgraded FOs were working for? PARC is advertising that some of their guys got upgraded but I have not seen any of the other agencies mentioning this.

Basically, are all the FOs treated equal in terms of upgrade opportunities no matter who they are contracted with?

How many pilots is VNA hiring a month?

travelwell72 12th Jun 2008 02:41

this is replying to rocketman questions..

VAC has stopped looking for Capts on the 777 for the mean time and is only interested in filling their f/o needs.

both from Parc and Euro pacific .

Does anyone know the tax rate for Vietnam? Did a quick search online and found it stood at 35%...

Is that contract offered by Rishworth and Parc's before or after tax?

jumpdrive 12th Jun 2008 08:05

no expat pays tax over here man
otherwise no one will come here to give away what.....35% je je

stardustcologne 12th Jun 2008 12:00

As far as I know it is after tax, both.

Does anybody know something about hiring F/O on A330?

Someone from over there told me that there isn't really any need for foreign A330 F/Os but there is still a contract offer...
Well, I won't be so funny and give notice here to get the answer there "hmm, NOW we stopped hiring". Parc did already. They did already withdraw their offer for A330 F/O "sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused to you" :hmm:

ia1166 13th Jun 2008 02:43

tax is paid by the airline. It's in the contract. What you get on the contract is what you get. no deductions. Actually all expats here do pay tax. Everyone i know. teachers, lawyers doctors. Everyone. The contract states all taxes are paid by the company. In reality though you can't get any proof of this so if you need to show the tax office at home any hard evidence other than your contract, well you can't. A few pilots have been caught out by this. I think the canadians and americans inparticular.

upgrades are not dependant on the contract company. However i do know that PARC are helping their guys with the 15K bond. I'm not sure RAL are helping their guys at all.

We all got a 200 dollar payrise in May. Everyone. The PARC guys were paid this right from the get go. The RAL guys have been told that to get their raise thay will need to sign a 5 year contract. So the PARC chaps are now on more money. It's your choice who you sign with. I'm just passing on some useful ifo that may help you.

Ya right, Rishworth helping their pilots :yuk:, Rishworth threatens their pilots, helping is not in their vocabulary, Parc Aviation is going out of their way by giving the guys a couple of months to get the bond together. :D Easy choice to make.

You are fully right NVpilot: Rishworth threatens pilots to stop training when you canīt come up with your paperwork for a bond right away. There is no help what for ever.

ia1166 14th Jun 2008 00:30

Has RAl been threatening? I've not heard that and i'd find it very hard to believe. On the whole they're nice to deal with as are Parc. If you have any facts please lets hear them.

As far as i'm concerned, and i have worked for both, they offer a different package so you have to look closely at each and decide which suits you better. The insurances offered differ in a lot of ways and they both have good points and bad points Unfortunatley this requires a bit of research and a basic ability to read english.

As far as tax goes, this also requires a basic ability to read the contract before you sign it. And understand it. Vietnam Airlines pays all your tax liabilities for you. If you come from a first world country and have to show your home IRS that tax has been paid then you need to have a close look at this. The Canadians, Americans, Germans i think and certainly the Australians all have to be careful to ensure they don't have a tax liability at home. Even more so for the australians since jetstar rocked up. Vietnam is now on the tax office radar.

Don't be so naive to think that parc/ral/airline management and the irs i should expect don't read this forum. So please lets hear some facts and not idle slander. Rishworth threatened me followed by a bunch of smilies belongs in a adolescent chat room. Surely it's normal to provide a bond before training starts. PARC are providing the bond first and getting their pilots to pay them back. If RAL don't want to do this then your argument is with VAC, not RAL.

Question about travel benefits.
So you get ID90 and ID75 tickets only on VN network. Do you get any other ID's on other carriers? Trying to figure out what would be the best way to get to US and back.Anything with American Airlines?
Another question about health benefits. I know there are some differences between the two contracts, but on average how much extra do you pay for the family.
Thanks
