MARA Education Loans for Cadet Pilots

What happened to the MARA education loans for cadet pilot course?

To what i understand.. all Malaysian cadet pilots graduated from a Malaysian flying school must work with airlines from Malaysia only. Such as MAS, Air Asia, Firefly, Maswings or other local companies in need of pilots. To apply to other foreign airlines you may required a certain flying hours in order to be eligible. Or you may have to convert to other foreign license first to work with that country’s airlines company. That will be more costly..

That may be the reason why MARA sponsors private cadets due to the airline, during that time MAS in need of pilots. MARA confident that the MARA sponsored cadet pilots will get the opportunity to be recruited to MAS. But, due to the economic downturn that hit the aviation industry, MAS dont need any new pilots yet.. for ur info, it is hard to get any job even in other sectors as well. This lead MARA to consider back their private loans for cadet pilots..

Previously, MAS fully sponsored all of their cadets. But now the MAS cadets are sponsored by MARA due to the confirmation of jobs. But still.. there are some MAS cadet pilots remains jobless. They are not allowed to apply jobs to other airlines coz of their contract with MAS.

MARA need to know whether MAS in need of pilots or not.. unfortunately not yet. “We’re hoping for MARA, and MARA hoping for MAS supports”..

All of this info is according to some of my pilot friends and some cadet pilot personal blogs plus my opinions. Correct me and sorry if i’m wrong.. all I can say is be patient. To all pilot wanabees ou there, bear in mind that pilots will always be needed, only the times will decide it. InsyaAllah kalau ada rezeki, the time will comes..
