Fokker 50 of CityJet
Dear Captain Lim,

My name is Farhan and I completed my Commercial Pilot's License with Instrument Rating at the Malaysian Flying Academy.

Now I am in Indonesia with a local airline flying the Fokker 50s

My question is, will my hours on the Fokker 50s be valuable after my 3 years contract?

Would my chances of getting into an airline in Malaysia be better after the 3 years of flying the Fokker 50s?

And also, what are the possibilities of a jet-operated airline absorbing me?

Regards,

Farhan.

Hi Farhan,

Normally, certified hours on any transport planes are recognised in terms of experience for joining the airlines. Of course, after your contract in 3 years’ time, the hours accumulated would be valuable as compared to another pilot with little or no turbo-propeller hours

Whether your chances are better is very subjective. If your record is good and you can perform well in the interview, you would be taken in by any airlines irrespective of the types of commercial planes you flew before.

All the best to your future
