Isn't it about time people realize that there is too many flying schools in Malaysia already?

Now here comes flying school No.9.

the CI is From MFA! :Big Grin:

and they are not expecting for local students, they are aiming for international students and I heard they are doing some kind of deal with the airlines where their students are almost 100% confirmed to be picked up by airlines

and their cost are more expensive than the current rates in preceding FA.

yes~~ when the airlines want lets say 10 students, then the academy will appoint them with their best 10 for them to monitor. If they are unhappy with any of them, they can change it anytime. great huh? Smile

What happens to the rest that are not in the 'best' list? They'll just be like any other aspiring pilots in the end. Selling pisang goreng by the roadside with a frozen ATPL?

Very typical "selling-point" for new start ups.

Think of this, if i'm an established airline, why would i hire new pilots without experience out of a new flying school with no experience at all in training? Speaking about middle eastern airlines, if you guys have checked out the requirements for FO position, no one is gonna hire you with ZERO hrs. Here's a quick glance on the requirements.

Emirates : 4000hrs total.
Qatar : 1500hrs total.
Etihad : 1500hrs total.

I'm just highlighting this as many people have got conned by agents and even some foreign flying schools who promised "jobs" upon graduation. Most if not all are now on the long waiting list for jobs with MAS, Airasia, Firefly, MASWings and other companies.....
