Pilot grads urged to spread their wings

JUNIOR pilots in Malaysia are still dreaming of their pie in the sky despite a glut of rookies in their profession.

Industry players point out these rookies believe they can earn big bucks from commercial airlines immediately after graduation.

However, the reality is most of them will end up not being able to follow their dreams due to limited intake from local airlines for fresh graduates.

Currently, there are five flying schools in the country, churning out about 300 graduates annually. Junior pilots graduate with 200 hours under their belt, enabling them to only fly small aircrafts below 5,700kg.

Applicants need to meet a minimum standard

BOTH Malaysia Airlines (MAS) and AirAsia run cadet pilot training programmes with MAS recruiting more than 100 cadets annually.

However, according to MAS director of operations, Capt Izham Ismail, the programme has been stopped recently though he gave no reason for this.

“Yes, a large number of applicants used to apply for this training programme and on completion of training, they were absorbed by MAS. The duration of the programme is between 18 and 24 months. We bore the costs initially but the cadet had to pay back through salary deductions once employed,” he says.

Pilots come down to earth

Young, jobless pilots are scrambling to make ends meet with the current glut in pilots.

SINCE he was six, S. Nathan has harboured the dream of becoming a pilot. It was an arduous journey to materialise his ambition but he made it. His parents were not affluent so he scrimped, saved, worked, invested in shares and sought ways to increase his education fund. Finally, he sold his car, took a loan and with additional funding from his family, enrolled in a flying school in Malacca in 2007.

After investing nearly RM250,000 in his studies, Nathan graduated top of his class in 2009 and earned himself a Commercial Pilot Licence (CPL). No one could have been prouder than his labourer parents. But three years on, he's still struggling to find employment.

SIA freezes hiring of cadet pilots amid business slowdown

Singapore Airlines (SIA) has frozen cadet-pilot recruitment and cut flying hours for junior pilots amid a business slowdown that has led to a manpower surplus.

The last cadet intake was early this year and it has not been decided when hiring will resume, SIA spokesman Nicholas Ionides told The Straits Times. He did not say how many were recruited during the last exercise, but noted that it was a smaller number than in previous years. The usual is about 120 a year.

SIA, which has about 2,400 pilots, last suspended hiring of cadet pilots in 2009 following the global financial crisis. The current slowdown, which caused full-year profits for the 12 months to end-March to dive 69 per cent to $336 million, is also affecting those already flying.

AirAsia ditches plan to buy Batavia Air

JAKARTA, Oct 11 — Budget carrier AirAsia Bhd and Indonesian ally PT Fersindo Nusaperkasa are not buying PT Batavia Air now as all parties have failed to reach an agreement, Dow Jones Newswires quoted the Indonesian domestic airline as saying today.

“We will continue to seek strategic partners to develop our business,” Batavia Air chief executive director Yudiawan Tansari told Dow Jones.

The newswire reported that Tansari declined to specify whether they failed to reach an agreement on the value of Batavia Air.

AirAsia, Asia’s largest budget airline by fleet size, announced in July a planned purchase of a 49 per cent stake in Batavia Air, while Fersindo would buy the remaining 51 per cent to comply with Indonesian laws. The companies were expected to pay a total of US$80 million (RM248 million) for Batavia Air.
