Raich Aerospace Group LLC Aviator DBA Sovrasco LLC Aerocadet DBA Global Air Ferry DBA The answer is: VERY VERY FAST. In fact, Indonesia is one of the fastest pilot promoting/upgrading aviation industries in the World. Consider this: in airlines such as United, Quantas, British Airways and other US/EU air carriers, it takes around 10 years to upgrade from first officer to captain. In Indonesia, the upgrade time could be as fast as 3 years. Once you obtain your captaincy and start logging PIC (pilot in command) time on a B737 or A320 or any other jet/turboprop, you will have thousands of international employment doors open too. You will be able to easily transition from a captian job in Indonesia to the similar job in China or Singapore or Hong Kong.
