Dear Proline21.


I totally agree with you here.
What a bunch of nonsense to read here...
I have flown with so called "proper" British, German and Irish pilots (Captains and FOs) and I had the worse flights in my career because most of them where either so socially nervous and eccentric like women with extreme menstruation (British!) and /or alcohol damaged (British, Irish & Germans!) that Russians might look like innocent teenagers in comparison!
And THESE Captains/FOs were all flying in PROPER airlines that you should expect higher standard!


I have also flown in India, China and the entire Middle East on contracts with airlines with "respectable names" and can tell that I am surprised that they have even obtained an AOC! And "western" pilots are continuing to FLOW into these airlines, happy with a big smile and shut eyes because there are no jobs at home! So WHY then throw dirt to the Russians??


So dear :
Russia has grown and developed drastically since 1990 and have one of the most modern fleets in the world! Not old crap as Europe is flying around in because of European economical disaster!
In addition the Russian pilots receive western training from western type rating training centers when they buy western aircrafts!


I think all of you who are throwing dirt to our good neighbor in the east should go and increase your own standard before you do such!

And in addition Russian cabin crews are VERY good looking, not like the fat, ugly and worn out wrecks in UK, and Europe dressed like my grand mother.
I flew with Qatar Airways some times and saw AWFUL brakes in security and flight standards conducted by the cabin crews that in addition barely could make an announcement in understandable English on ALL the flights I had as passenger with them!
And Qatar is suppose to be a "5 Star" airline?????

HAHA, Europe's biggest airline has one of the newest fleets in the market 737!! As does the majority of the main European airlines. Your post is nothing but racist and nonsensical garbage!! Your present Russian fleet is a carbon copy of your Russian politics, stuck in the 1980s!!!

Agree with 737Rider

Russia gives the Social life, unlike any QR / EK or similar job when you are stuck in your apartment block and there's desert around you.
And especially unlike China - you CAN walk out of your hotel, see around, meet people and make new friends - so many people in Moscow speak English these days.
It is *much more* comfortable place than China, M.E. or say Korea.

@speed alive....
In order to claim that someone post is "nonsensical garbage" you should at least show the bear minimum that you read and understood what you are commenting on.
So when you say " Europe's biggest airline has one of the newest fleets in the market 737" I suppose that you are reffering to Ryanair which is only one company out of hundreds that is flying in EU. B737rider was more general than that and he certainly did not deserve such comment for his post, at least not one unreasonable and superfluous as yours.

He was also very detailed in his racist remarks which I branded "garbage" not his aviation points as I feel everyone is entitled to their opinion, however if you want to defend such comments shame on you Sascha410!!!

Little "Rotate boy".
You are referring to the low cost airlines as RYR and Easy who are the worse operators you can find. That proves that you are as inexperienced and narrowed viewed as you are announcing. Low time FO I guess?
Get some experience before you talk to big boys in any situation "Rotate and lost".

Hi Elle.
Thanks for your and Sasha's support
I don't think the airline has assessed any pilots with reference to their add last month yet. It is too early, but what I heard is that they might start in the beginning of July.
I am excited about this and hope that we can be employed and be a good asset to our Russian neighbor.
I wish all of you good luck on the assessments! Remember that the medical check is tough like the Chinese one and extensive so take care of your health from now on if not done before!

no worries re: car crash videos, I have seen much more stupid incidents in Philippines, with population about the same as in RU, however corruption being much worse, airline jobs being much worse and everything times more complicated than anywhere else in the world.

...Re: AFL job, I believe it is the only one on the market at moment?

Does anyone have idea if a full Russian VLEK medical will be required to complete, or these would be a fast lane e.g. direct validation of JAR ATPL/Medical?

Unbelievably bad driving! I'm sure dash cams from Italy would more than equal though.
Russia is ok to be in and I would prefer it to the middle east for sure.
As for the willy waving about other airlines etc, just don't bite guys.
As for the russian ladies..... Well I've got no complaints there

Shame I don't have P1 on a 320 ((

re: russian ladies, it's probably the only place where pilot can have local girlfriend and overall life much better and much more exciting than at home.

IF NOT THAT DAMN "VLEK" Medical.. If they have us foreigners to pass the full Russian standard medical, it takes easily upto 2 weeks, lots of money for extra tests, and is at least twice more restrictive than regular JAR-FCL3 standard

For example - you have to have ALL of your teeth healthy in order to pass. Not a single tooth caries is permitted, believe it or not.
