Not sure of what type of accommodations you prefer but in the center of town, what is called District 1 is your best bet, close to everything, tour buses originate from this area, to all points. No safety issues, all parts of the city are very safe.

Thanks. I'll start from there. If anyone else has any suggestions, please let me know.

Vietnam Air Newbie
Very interested in the Parc Contract for Vietnam A320 operations. Anyone in the airline now that I can email to gage the happiness index there? thanks fellow pilots!:ok:

Money is a bit low considering the inflation that affects expats, living conditions much better than India and the 6/2 schedule is good.

VN questions
Hi Dream Land.
Thanks for the info. How much in terms of rent and living expenses should one single guy be expecting to part with every month in HCMC? (safe comfortable condo, occasional beers, and getting around with taxi, can eat local food, etc) .

working conditions, fellow pilots, local and expat pilot integration?

command potential for FO contract?

any info on apartments for rent web sites in the city

Dream Land 31st Dec 2007 09:59

A couple items in the expat paper today, email: [email protected] and www.chaocom.com.

jumpdrive 1st Jan 2008 15:49

is it possible for an expat to buy a propperty over there
is it easy, has someone done it
instead of paying rent for a long period of time

Dream Land 2nd Jan 2008 00:18

Yes it is possible to purchase condominiums, purchasing land can be accomplished with a bit of red tape or Vietnamese wife.

They seem to be getting a bit desperate, Rishworth email stated they are in the process of finalising terms for pilots not meeting usual requirements of 1500/jet 500/type for FO. Basically if you have an A320 rating they will look at you.

varigflier 8th Jan 2008 01:40

I got that same email twice already. All I did was ask for some information and now I keep on getting their emails every week. Do you guys think they will raise the pay again??

jumpdrive 8th Jan 2008 17:22

theyre having lots of discussions as we chat
they dont seem to reach an agreement
with the ATR pilot's and "extras" are diff from the ATR fleet & Airbus fleet
like per diem & accomodation
in ATR allowance is $1,000 , in 320 is $1,500
simply not fair for the ATR skipper's ,you'll live in the same city
regardless of type............its stupid
so ATR pilots are realy upset & mad about it
also they wanna change the per diem fix
from $1,000 to $1,200
lets see what they come up this week
c ya

It doesn't matter how the individual salary, housing, or per diem expenses are divided up. Each contractor does it differently.

All that matters is what the total is.

yankiejack 9th Jan 2008 23:00

Total salary per month???
Could some one in the know please advise what is the total net salary being offered by the 2 agencies.

Thanx for the info. Have a great day.


jumpdrive 10th Jan 2008 01:18

varigflier 10th Jan 2008 01:19

Parc, Rishworth and I believe there is one more but I can't remember the name.

jumpdrive 10th Jan 2008 01:20

Dream Land 10th Jan 2008 04:12

Could some one in the know please advise what is the total net salary being offered by the 2 agencies.
Which fleet are you needing information on? You can just click on the Rishworth Aviation banner on PPRuNe to see details of the offer.

yankiejack 10th Jan 2008 05:21

Hi Dream Land,

The A320 fleet.

Will check their website. Is the pay pretty much the same across the agencies???

Website really doesnt mention the pay scale !!!!!
