It is my opinion that Vietnam will always be in need of expats for the foreseeable future, upgrading is possible on the 77 fleet depending on staffing requirements only, at this time they seem to be over staffed, captains flying in both seats lately.

Anyone have an update on recruitment with VNA?
Haven't heard any news on recruitment there.

Last I heard (about a month ago), through PARC, was that they are in the process of setting up T&C's on a new agreement - for non A320 type rated applicants.....

Not sure if this also refers to those who already have type rating but no time on type.

With the American Airlines partnership, are you going to be able to travel at a discounted rate?

Hey angelgabriel,

Could you shed some light on the sim ride you took?

Thanks,
VF

angelgabriel 6th Mar 2008 05:11

the sim cx included dual hyd failures,windshear,tcas,emer descent,seng app and go around and lots of N.P.A's. they look for s.o.p and safe handling. the fleet manager did mine and he was a very nice guy.

May I suggest to future applicants that have inquiries about actual simulator scenarios be left to private messages, although Vietnam is considered a developing country, they are very internet savvy and regularly read this thread.

Where are the Vietnam Airlines' pilots based?

mach 84 7th Mar 2008 09:28

all in ho chi minh city (SGN) but especially in the airbus fleet you can expect to spend a lot of overnights at hanoi (HAN).

Any chance on them lowering the 1000 PIC on type (A-320) requirement?

Thanks.

Try this, it's the local Engish "happy" news paper.

Doing a google search for "houses for rent in Hochiminh" will produce plenty. Some of the things you may run into are minimum one year lease, people asking for three months rent in advance, they will ask you to sign two different leases, one is your agreement with the owner, the other is a fake agreement that they put on record with the police that shows a rental price of half the real agreement. Many houses listed are for sale and may be sold without any notice. Most houses are originally built for no air conditioning.

HCMC its a bit over rated with the prices
taxis on one hand are expensive, toyotas & all U want but not cheap
in BKK for example my ride for the airport was almost 40 km
& ussually paid 180 baht or almost all the time round it up to 200 Bt
if i took the tollway, add another 40 bt, but thats it
were talking about 7 dolars here
in HCMC i pay 10 for 13 km's, from sky garden to airport

& rent level are just way up
smal 2 bedroom or 3 bedroom, not lower than $1,300
plus 3 months deposit (if lucky) or 6
and some like to be paid evry 2 months

elsewere another app is better or same quality but way less than $1,000

any way its what i see

the area over sly garden its .................ok.................yes ok
but tinyWinni appts for 1,400's 1,600's, or $1,800's?!?!?!?
hummmmmm, no way jose
dont even think about A HOUSE if your salary its not over 15K a month
or paid by a big oiling company
theyre nice but the lowest its on the 3,000's!!!!

anyway's im still lookinn for something worth the bucks

some information
 
Hello there everybody.
I am an Airbus A-320 family captain with the required experience to join Vietnam Airlines. I have sent an e-mail to Parc aviation and got their reply, but still have some questions if you can help me out.

1- Does Vietam airlines ( or Parc ) pay thirteen salary ?
2- Does Vietam airlines ( or Parc ) pay any provident fund ?
3- Is the "confirmed ticket" on VAC network extended to your family ( I have a wife - no kids )
4- Is your family included in BUPA or you have to pay extra for that ?
5- Does the 2 weeks-off start when you reach your home base until you leave it or it is calendar days ?

Thanks for any information, I need them to decide accepting or not this contract.

Have nice and safe flights to everybody.

1. 13?
2. ?, sorry not familiar.
3. No
4. Pay extra, don't have any numbers to pass on.
5. Home base is SGN, so since you work out of home base and are home each night, this is not an issue. So you are scheduled to fly on the day before rotation and the first day following. There is no travel time given in addition to days off.

If you are asking about the company paying a bonus 13th month, the answer is no. Cheers, D.L.

D.L.

You seem to have the scoop on Vietnam Airlines. I just saw an advertisement from PARC that Vietnam is looking for A320 captains with different roster patterns. I assume the pay differs based on the roster.

I'm currently with USAiways and want to get back into contract flying again. This carreer in the USA isn't what it used to be.

Could you PM me and let me know how you like it there, what terms I should expect from PARC, etc.

Cheers.

life in vietnam is not to bad at all, but you should keep in mind that the falling dollar and the inflation (18%last february) are taking their toll. if you are coming alone -fine, but if you have your family here things are getting expensive. close to the airport you still can find some cheap places to stay, but your family would not be happy. if you settle at familyfriendly enviroment, like PHU MY HUNG, you have to pay for it (1-2K). not only that the rent there is going up, the traffic jams are getting bigger day by day and also the taxi fares have gone up by 70% over the last 2 years.
