F/O low timer
hello everyone,

I am doing my CPL/IR course, I will be a low timer, my father is Vietnamese, unfornatunlely I do not speak vietnamese (:ugh:) and I do not have vietnamese nationality( french nationality) I am trying to get the double nationality, but it is very very difficult.... Any chance for F/O position ??

No, you need to have experience on type to get a job as a foreigner in Vietnam.

That means a type rating and at least 500 hours on type. They currently pay foreigners about $8,000 USD per month for 320 FO.

Vietnamese nationals get paid much less. Your best bet is to get some experince before you go to Vietnam.

Event if I was paid 1500$ I would go... you can live very well with that.
Ok...that's a shame. :uhoh:

I agree, even a foreigner can live reasonably well on as little as $1000 per month in Vietnam.

In that case, try and get your dual citizenship, learn some Vietnamese and head off to Vietnam. It could be a good way for you to get experience. Their pilot cadets generally start out as ATR-72 FO's.

They might be happy to have you. But just a warning.... Working for Vietnam Airlines is a VERY prestigious, highly sought after job, for any Vietnamese National.

Rumours are that you need to bribe someone, pay a fee, or have family members high up in the Communist Party in order to get a job as a pilot or Flight Attendant.

Dream Land 29th Nov 2007 06:19

Is this Randy ?

tknapp 29th Nov 2007 14:53

Thats Randy! Always with a beer.

Lost in Saigon 29th Nov 2007 14:56

I don't have his email address. Were you able to get it from "Dream Land"?

Bus Junkie 29th Nov 2007 18:22

Oh yes, that is Randy. Where are his twins?

Dream Land 30th Nov 2007 02:02

Vietnam 737 Jobs
Is anyone over there hiring 737 Pilots? I just got screwed over in India, and am looking for something.

Dream Land 30th Nov 2007 18:59

Pacific Airlines, sorry, don't have any details about requirements for DEC's their website only talks about the cadet programme, partly owned by Jet*? Sorry I couldn't give more info.

LindbergB767 1st Dec 2007 05:24

Hey NG Pacific is not paying very good and since Qantas is involve now they are planning to phase out the 737 and replace them by A 320
You should look for a contract in Japan where the conditions are a lot better
Yes the course is long in Japan but you are fully paid while doing it (6 months)

New vacancies?
Many new captain slots may become available in Vietnam soon, management has thought up a brilliant idea for all captains to get checked out in the R/H seat to help combat the mass exodus of FO's recently (small bus fleet). :ugh: Also a letter from the fleet manager indicates that all FO's are frozen in their position for at least one year. Think twice before coming this way...

Vietnam it's a great Country...people are very friendly.

dougmeister 3rd Dec 2007 14:21

tknapp, don't know if you've managed to locate your friend Randy or not. There maybe some confusion about Randy's in Vietnam Airlines. You were looking for a "check airman". The Randy in the picture is an OLP.
Vietnam Airlines seems to only select European TRE/TRIs. Hope this helps:ok:

NVpilot 5th Dec 2007 09:15

Doug, please read post 49. Hope this helps. :ok:
