What do you think of my plan to be a budget airline pilot?

Dear Sir,

I wish to show my gratitude to you for your passion in maintaining this informative website for the future pilots.  For this, I can be ascertained that you are a good mentor and advisor to your junior pilots.

I have studied through the salary scale that the website published.  I realized that Jetstar Asia pay scale is not included.  May I ask if this information can be included as part of the reference?  Along with this question, may I also ask if it is true that budget airlines do not pay as well as major airlines such as Silkair?  And that budget airlines do not pay bonus to their pilots, since they are still in the process of breaking-even?

 
What can an airline pilot do if he is medically grounded?

Hello Captain Lim,

I have this question that bugs me when I think about my future.

I am thinking... if let's say, I'm now an airline pilot but due to medical reason, I have no choice but to quit my job as a pilot. Say by that time, I would be 40 years old. What can I do?

And let's say, I have a mechanical engineering degree. By the time I am 40 years old, I would definitely not be competitive enough to compete with fresh graduates - hence decreasing my chance to secure a job. Does that mean that I can then do nothing?

In brief, what are the alternatives for pilots who are forced to quit their job due to medical reasons? What are the chances of them getting a new job? (since their working experiences are only limited to the cockpit.)

I really need to know the answer of this question as it has a lot to do with my future.

I would appreciate it if you can enlighten me on this...

Thanks a lot.

Regards,

Yee Shiuan

Dear Captain Lim,

Thank you for creating such a wonderful site providing vast amount of information and knowledge for aspiring pilots. I have previously sent you a message but did not get a reply and I think you have just too many messages to go through. So I am hoping this mail can get to you one day!

Sorry, I had forgotten to include my personal particulars in my previous email. I have completed my Degree in Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering in Nanyang Technological University in Singapore and am 25 years of age this year.

I am a Singaporean and had previously failed my 2nd interview with the SIA cadet pilot program after the tea party stage. I am really interested in pursuing flying as a career but I have no flying experiences and so I need your advice on these questions:

 
Who is more professional... a doctor or pilot?

Hi Captain Lim,

Just want to ask... Who is more professional... a doctor or pilot?  My mother keeps on saying doctors are the ones who earn a lot of money. But I do not quite agree with her.

 

Recently, I found out that pilots in MAS can earn up to RM 36,000.00 a month with qualifications. I am pretty sure a doctor cannot earn as much as that.

So, the one and only Captain Lim, could you please give me the answer to this question?

Well, I am certainly going to be pilot as it is the best job in the whole wide world. LONG LIVE PILOTS!
