I hope that gross figure is for First Officers. If so, it is an okay deal.

I hope Jared's email can handle all the "incoming". Hmmm, I seem to remember hearing about some young guy who ran off to Taipei once upon a time...

...wonder whatever became of him ...

Good question, I hear he wanders around the earth in search of a place to call home. :erm:

Hello TP,

Yes that is F/O pay.
Thanks, are they hiring Captains as well or is it just the F.O. positions ?

The MD-90 is a sweet machine and flying domestically in Taiwan is a lot of fun. People on this board tend to know my guidance on working in Asia as an F.O., but EVA/UNI have a better CRM culture than CAL, FAT, TAA so it could be okay. Certainly would like to hear your impressions Jared, both about the flying and the guys you are flying with.

Hey Jared, I went to their web page, but seems like there is only a chinese version. Any tricks to get the E-letters?

What are the minimums?

Hi MJPilot,
Their web page is only in Chinese at this time. They currently do not have any published minimums. I have be told by a couple of Mgt pilots they would like 3000 TT and 500 Turbine but like I said there is nothing written. I have also been told that previous airline experience is a plus and having English as your native tongue is a big plus. I seems that alot of their F/O's can not upgrade because they lack English skills. I just finish my 1st 6-month recurrent and have been told to start to prepare for the Cap upgrade interview. I hope this info is helpful.

TP,
I can appreciate your nickname. I have already logged a couple "typhoon landings" since starting here in Feb. I talked with Morgan this morning and he talked like they would only be hiring F/O's. To come into this type of environment (all Chinese, I am the only English speaking line pilot they have) as a new Cap would, in my opinion, be extremely challenging. Just my opinion.
I hope this helps.

Hi Jared:

Thanks for the good info. I wasn't asking the Captain bit for myself, was just curious. I know that EVA has gone to a strict seniority based system ( except for some contract guys on the 767 ). Since EVA/UNI are pretty much tied at the hip I was just wondering if it is the same there.

I agree, Taiwan domestic flying is certainly challenging and not for everybody. It is some of the funnest flying I have ever done.

Good guess on my screen name, I though it very appropriate after three years in Taiwan.

Hope you get that upgrade soon,

Hi TP,

Thanks for the reply. Who did you work for when you flew in Taiwan? Where are you working now? Thanks for the info.

I flew the MD-80 for FAT for three years in the 90s. They hired twelve Americans for a rapid expansion , most left after the first year. Myself and a few others stayed on until the Asian Economic crisis caused us to be too expensive to employ. I still spend as much time as possible in Taiwan.

I'm now at Emirates.

I just got hired by EVA and schedule to start class date in DEC. and this is the first positive post I ever saw for EVA. I hope you're right.

Just watch out for the women from Taiwan, otherwise you may wake up with a ring on your finger, with no memory of what happened the night before, HA!

Medical is unreal, it's a 2 day process so they can check everything.
Here's some of the test I can remember:
1 blood sugar
2 EKG
3 EEG
4 eye/hand coordination
5 ultrasound to check for stones
6 stress test
7 10 eye tests
8 bend over and split your butt cheeks test
There's a heck of a lot more and I'll write again as soon as I remember. I think they send pilots to Mars over there in Taiwan.

Wow! That sounds just like the Japanese JCAB medical exam, two full days of testing....
