Is it possible for a privately sponsored cadet pilot to be jobless after graduation?
Pilot Career - Becoming a Pilot
Written by Capt Lim

Dear Captain Lim,

I heard rumors that chances of getting a job after graduation from a flying school is very low in Malaysia.

As for me, I am thinking of going to APFT privately. It will cost me around RM225K for the course and I definitely have to pay back the money (for the loan) at the end of the day.

So, is it possible for a private cadet pilot to become jobless after training? Any advice?

Thanks.

Can a senior RMAF pilot bypass the normal progression to be an airline captain?

Hi Captain Lim,

You have done a great job for all aspiring pilots around the world. I really appreciate your kindness and hard work that you have portrayed through this informative yet useful website.

I have a question for you. My cousin who is in the Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) is considering becoming a commercial pilot. He has been serving for more than 10 years and is now a 28 years old air force pilot.

My cousin is confused about the ranking between the air force and commercial aviation. He is a Major but, can he take his rank into the commercial airlines (Malaysia Airlines), skip the natural upgrade process and become a captain?
 
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 are the job prospects for privately funded cadet pilots in Malaysia?

Hi Captain Lim,

Thanks for your useful website.

My name is Hanis and I'm from Ampang, Selangor. I have two questions about the pilots' job prospects. I am a private student at APFT (Asian Pacific Flight Training).

My first question - is it true that fresh private students will find it hard to apply for jobs in Malaysia because there are 7 flying academies in the country and just 3 companies - AirAsia, Malaysia Airlines and Firefly to provide pilot jobs?

Secondly, must we have flying experiences if we want to work overseas?

Regards,

Hanis

 
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
