Star Marianas Questions

#1
Hi guys,

I'm trying to find out a bit more about Star Marinas from current/past pilots. Here's what I’m curious about:

1) Did/do you feel safe flying for them? I've heard a few mixed reviews.

2) I've heard that during training I'd get checked-out in the C172 & PA-28. What are these check-outs like? Are they left seat or right seat?

3) Overall, did you like it and would you recommend it?

Thanks in advance for any info!

I have no idea, but regarding a 172 and PA-28, they are the Saturns of the aviation world. Bone simple, and if you have a Commercial license, you've flown at least one of them. I wouldn't over think it. I would imagine a checkout would be commercial maneuvers and company specific procedures.

I remember applying with them maybe 4-5 years ago. They will list a position for "PA-28 Pilot", but you'll soon learn that they'll have you flying sightseeing tours with Chinese tourists in the 172 for 6+ months before they'll ever let you touch the PA-28. They'll also tell you that there is a possibility to upgrade into a Chieftain, but they want something like 2,500 hours and an ATP to fly it.

Cool, thanks for the response

Pay is $1200 a month plus tips.

"Plus tips". The US is one of the only countries that does tip. I hope they leave their pilots enough time to have a job that pays more than meal expenses. Living on the Islands isn't cheap. Rooms/apartments are cheap because everything else is so expensive.
