Don't know leh.
I think its only fair if the cadet foot the bill if they fail. Because they failed to ensure they pass especially after the company has "invested" their money into the cadet. They are after all a biz entity. I think its only fair that both sides bear some responsibilities otherwise they are most probably going to attract people who wants the job but not the effort required.
self funded MPL/CPL programmes with airlines has been around for quite sometime. it helps companies with their training budgets etc. in US and europe its very common for pilots to pay for their own clocked hours or CPL/ type rating lor. just too bad we are in a airspace congested country/region, the price may be steep as we need to go overseas to fly. SQ one they pay for you but their starting pay is not that fantastic and bear in mind of the selection rounds you have to go thru, and don forget you have to fight with RSAF pilots. besides SQ now alr got surplus of too many pilots.

Oh, I didn't know that overseas pilot have to diy too. From what I understand, SQ has been getting their supply from RSAF, personally know a few peeps where they accepted a cut in pay to go SQ as RSAF got cut off age, every 3 months or so have tests to undergo as well.

Are you aware if the cost on Msia side has rise as well? The last I know was stated at $60k ..

I supposed they are a LCC. Pay wise, LCC pilots kind of lose out to FC pilots (Hearsay only ah, don't know how true). So ROI may be longer if they sponsor? But again, reports have been saying Asian region is facing a lack of pilots so why not reduce the obstacles to help genuine people to achieve that!

I'm so put off by the cost of training with no end in sight. Thinking of getting privately in Msia instead, don't know how would that work out to though.
I shared exactly the same thoughts as you. Have been thinking of going Malaysia to get one PPL. But having said, when applying for local license with caas may be a problem. Must check with caas before going forward. But have been holding back. Did some research. Is about 10k sgd for PPL.

Yah. Msia PPL. There are a few in Johor, my info is pretty outdated as I kept dreaming and being crushed after learning of the cost haha.

Is only 10k meh, where got so cheap
There's this Singaporean unker who chased after his pilot dream and wrote on the blog the routes that the public could probably take. He's now a flight instructor. Quite informative.

About 5-7 years then u will start to feel the money coming in. Before that is usually debt paying.

I think for people who want this job can pay their own sch fee, the risk is there for the individuals for learning. What scoot can do is to give those student who pass with a lump sum of money as a bond. win win for both

cannot be $160k. MPL programmes now also roughly $200k SGD, unless you are talking about CPL without type rating.

assuming you have a poly diploma, and you going to invest $200k into this. it's like forking out $200k to go UK to study a degree in smlj business or marketing loh. or that's how i see it lah. Gonna take at least 10 years to pay off the loan. that's if you put aside $1.6k every month over 10 years. but i'm sure salary will not be that low and like every career, you just have to sacrifice at the start to pay off debt before you see returns.

at least pilot, 10 years later can see some returns. go UK study marketing, come back SG, spend 10 years pay back $$, after that tio retrenched.
