Filipina “defies gravity” in the Aviation Industry

Among many professions, piloting is one dominated by men. Proving that gender conventions are no longer in whilst 36,000 feet above the clouds is Jazmine Joyce Tia, a Filipina.

Tia, who graduated Computer Science, defied the odds in the industry. She followed the trail less traversed, to which she owes her statute as an A320 First Office in the Philippines AirAsia.

She shared, “It’s a roller-coaster ride. There are ups and downs.”

The Aviation Industry is No Longer a Man’s World

Globally, only a few women make it into commercial airlines. It is, as they say, a man’s world. But according to Tia, the time has come for change.

She said, “Sometimes, I feel discriminated because they make me feel that I cannot match what my male counterparts can do.”

The problem, however, is some people still choose to maintain these gender conventions rather than accepting the changes in the industry. But sheer will, confidence, and motivation were enough to drive Tia to keep going.

She admitted, “However, there are times when I feel elated because I can prove that despite being considered as the weaker sex, I can do anything.”

Despite this, Tia shared that passion and determination matched with commitment and discipline can help anyone exceed expectations, not only in the aviation industry, but in whichever profession a person desires.

A Brave Face and a Strong Heart

There is no one in Tia’s family who entered the airline industry.

“I have always been fascinated by airplanes and flying. I thought I couldn’t be a pilot so I first joined the airline industry as a cabin crew. It was my first job. I was based in AirAsia Malaysia for 5 years,” she said.

She rose undefeated despite the hurdles and obstacles. Her attitude in handling every problematic situation brought her to where she is now.

“The opportunity came when Philippines AirAsia had an opening. I opted to be transferred back to Clark so I could start my flight training in OMNI Airline Training Academy,” Tia shared.

She furthered, “The longer I spent time with my flight studies, the stronger my desire to fly became.”

However, she struggled in juggling her time between work and study. “I felt that my path toward flying was quite smooth because of the support of my family, my friends, and AirAsia.”

Tia revealed she didn’t – and doesn’t – feel pressured to act like a man despite the fact that the profession she chose is dominated by the males. Embracing her strengths as a woman gives her the confidence to express herself.

“There is nothing easy in this world. Everything comes with struggle and hard work. I found, and still find, the challenge very fulfilling,” Tia shared.

She sets a perfect example for those afraid to step out of their comfort zone. The process is hard, indeed, to achieve your dreams and attain your goals. But that shouldn’t stop anyone from trying.

“I decided to just be myself and focus on how I could achieve the goals I have set for myself,” Tia said.

All these would lead her to become, hopefully, an accomplished and respected Captain.

To women who also want to enter the industry, Tia shares, “Don’t let your gender stop you from achieving and pursuing the ambition of flying. The excitement and thrill of flying will more than compensate for all the hard work you will go through. Don’t waste your time on frailties and frivolous activities; follow your passion.”

Being a pilot is one of the most rewarding things in life, as Tia proves. The challenge is to embrace yourself and believe that you can do it, no matter how hard it is.

Explaining the Bleeding of Airlines amidst Double-Digit Passenger Growth

Crude oil prices are reaching new heights. Meanwhile, rupee is depreciating around 13 percent against the US dollar since 2018 began. India, however, is showing no signs of abating.

It has been a rough couple of months for Indian carriers. For 50 consecutive months, there has been a double-digit passenger traffic growth. In spite of this, Indian carriers have yet to be rid of the burden of rising aviation turbine fuel (ATF) prices to flyers.

Rising oil prices and the weaker rupee are not the only factors affecting the domestic carriers. The intense competition has resulted in a price war within the sector. While travellers rejoice over giveaway fares offered by low-cost, full-service carriers, the widening losses brought by escalating costs have been affecting the ability of domestic airlines to manage the problem.

A 38 percent rise in ATF prices have caused the Rs 50,200 per kilolitre (KL) in September last 2017 to jump to Rs 69,090 per KL in August this 2018. The margins of several airlines have been dented because of this, pressuring on yields – the average fair paid per mile, per passenger.

For instance, the yields at IndiGo have seen a 10 percent decline to Rs 3.21 in the second quarter of FY19. InterGlobe Aviation, IndiGo’s parent, suffered a loss of Rs 652.1 crore in the quarter ending on September.

India’s largest airline had more than 40 percent market share. Last year, it gained a profit of Rs 551.6 crore.

Rahul Bhatia, IndiGo’s co-founder and interim CEO, shared that the costs of pressure from the rising fuel prices, the depreciation of rupee, and the competitive fare environment significantly impacted profitability. The airline’s total income went up by more than 18 percent to Rs 6,514.2 crore in the second quarter of September this year.

Almost every airline experiences the stress of India’s price-sensitive market. The demand is high but the industry lacks the pricing power. This is a problem that stresses out every airline’s sustainability.

Dealing with Stress in the Aviation Industry

A professional airline pilot is a prestigious position. Although it’s a coveted position, being a pilot also comes with its own stressors. Pilots are exposed to increasing levels of stress on a regularly basis. Imagine the thought of handling a number lives in every flight. The mere pressure of caring for a number of people is a contributing factor.

Stress is the body’s biological response to adverse stimulus. It can be internal or external, but pilots experience both. Stressful situations can be anticipated or they can happen unexpectedly.

What are the sources of stress?

There are various categories of stress that most pilots have to deal with. Here are the common types of stressors:

Physical stressors — These are due to unpleasant conditions in the cockpit of the airplane. These include too much vibration, humidity, noise, or lack of oxygen.

Physiological stressors — These are disturbances in one’s physique. Physiological stressors come in the form of hunger, fatigue, or several illnesses.

Psychological stressors — Going through interpersonal problems, like the loss of a loved one, money problems, or argument with the spouse, could cause this stress.

Being a pilot in the aviation industry is a high-pressure and stressful job. Fatigue is the most common cause of pilot stress, due to their working hours. Jet lag is another strain caused by irregular working hours.

But pilots cope with stress by stress-control training. Stress management is important, but several factors vary depending on a pilot’s personality, flying time, and external sources of stress.

Pilots may hold prestigious positions in the airlines, but they suffer from different kinds of difficulties. It’s a rewarding job that comes with its own set of stressors. Then again, there is no job that is not stressful.

At OMNI Airline Training Academy, cadets are trained to handle stressful situations in the skies. Doing so will help negate risks that come with flying and ensure the safety of the airline passengers.

Clark: The Best Way to Train for Flying

Clark Freeport Zone provides an excellent ground for flight training. Clark serves as a home to the Philippines’ future premier gateway, which is the Clark International Airport (CRK). With ongoing and upcoming projects for Clark, everyone will want to enter OMNI Airline Training Academy, which is located in the heart of the area.

The Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) has implemented the Build, Build, Build program. The program intends to expand and enhance the grounds of Clark Freeport Zone and develop the New Clark City (NCC).

The NCC is set to become the country’s next international business hub, after the progressive development of the Bonifacio Global City (BGC). The ambitious but plausible plan of the BCDA will transform Clark into something more and better than BGC.

Another part of the Build, Build, Build program is to improve the Clark International Airport and transform and expand its facilities to ease the air traffic the country experiences at the moment. The plan to revamp CRK is also another option to decongest the influx of airline passengers in the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA), just as the NCC intends to decongest the population in Metro Manila.

But what makes all these projects exciting? Clark has the perfect grounds to train aspiring pilots. The OMNI Airline Training Academy, in particular, has set the highest standards in training its cadets into becoming airline-ready pilots after they undergo the Pilot Training Program offered in the Academy.

The premier flying school also provides better access for students to train their skills and knowledge and put them to the test with the right facilities and equipment, such as flight simulators. Aspiring pilots can opt to train with OMNI Airline Training Academy, given its provisions and capabilities.

The Academy stands tall after 25 years of providing excellent pilots to the aviation industry. The flying school’s location in Clark makes it the best training ground for soon-to-be pilots.

Individuals coming from North and South Luzon can easily go to the OMNI Airline Training Academy via the North Luzon Expressway (NLEx), Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEx), and the Tarlac-Pangasinan-La Union Expressway (TPLEx).

The accessibility of the premier Academy is enough for interested individuals to fulfill their dreams by taking up the Pilot Training Program. It will be a thorough process with a fulfilling reward in the end.

Canada Needs More Pilots, Aircraft Workers

Canada is in dire need of pilots and aircraft workers. The country needs a total of 3,000 pilots and 55,000 workers in the aviation industry by 2025. Retirements and industry growth are two of the major factors causing the said shortage.

The barriers are making it harder to recruit new workers. The shortage is so terrible that a national strategy has been deemed necessary to address it.

There are, however, many problems faced by the transport industry. One of these is the cost of flight schools, amounting to almost $75,000. The said amount is an employable level, which may even require students to live long distances from home.

On a side note, women and indigenous people are under-represented at all levels in the aviation industry. Even younger pilots are struggling, considering that they have to “pay their dues” at low-paying jobs for northern and rural airlines until they can transfer to bigger aircraft.

Transport Minister Marc Garneau shared, “We’re flying more and more and we will continue to fly more and more… We cannot afford to have labour shortages in the aviation industry.”

Today, the sector has about 154,000 employees. The missing workers will fill up spots, not only as pilots but also in aircraft manufacturing and maintenance.

Robert Donald, executive director of the Canadian Council for Aviation and Aerospace (CCAA), mentioned, “If we don’t have the workers, the jobs are going offshore and we won’t get them back.”

CCAA Director of Project Management Theresa Davis-Woodhouse shares, “Air travel – it’s going to be double. And you need people to fly those planes and to maintain those planes.”

She said Canada will need 7,300 pilots by 2025. There may be new pilots graduating every year, but as each year progresses, fewer than 1,200 new pilots graduate every year. The worst part is almost half of them are foreign students and only 70 percent of graduating pilots stay in the country to work in the industry.

The scenario, Davis-Woodhouse stressed, will result in a “critical shortage” of 3,000 pilots by 2025. The shortage will most likely be higher if new rules limiting flying hours to reduce pilots’ fatigue will be rolled out.

If you want to fill up the spot in Canada, enter our Pilot Training Program. At OMNI Aviation, not only will you be of help to Canada’s aviation industry, you will also get to pursue your dreams of flying. Contact us today for more information.

Cabin Crew Currently in Demand in PH

A widespread coverage of the staffing in the airline industry falls short. According to the International Air Transport Association (IATA), the industry projects a greater demand for cabin crew. That’s one of the reasons why the OMNI Airline Training Academy provides its Cabin Crew Training Program: to make it accessible for aspiring flight attendants.

The IATA recently released its Aviation Human Resources 2018 report. The Circle Research performed an independent survey on more than 100 HR professionals at airlines, airports, and ground service providers.

The survey found that 76 percent of the respondents project growth in cabin crew jobs in a span of two years. Meanwhile, 70 percent of them anticipate growth in the industry in about 10 years.

The greatest need for cabin crew lies in the markets of Asia-Pacific and Middle East, and Africa. These regions stand as the top growth market today, based on the IATA’s 20-year forecast.

All these facts and figures point out to one significant truth: now is the perfect time to apply as a cabin crew.

At the OMNI Airline Training Academy, individuals interested in becoming flight attendants may take the Cabin Crew Training Program. The Academy offers a rigorous training that equips aspiring cabin crew with the skills and knowledge that every flight attendant must have.

To further strengthen the core of its program, the OMNI Airline Training Academy tied up with John Robert Powers. The partnership intends to enhance the Personality Development course of the training in the Academy.

A widespread coverage of the staffing in the airline industry falls short. According to the International Air Transport Association (IATA), the industry projects a greater demand for cabin crew. That’s one of the reasons why the OMNI Airline Training Academy provides its Cabin Crew Training Program: to make it accessible for aspiring flight attendants.

The IATA recently released its Aviation Human Resources 2018 report. The Circle Research performed an independent survey on more than 100 HR professionals at airlines, airports, and ground service providers.

The survey found that 76 percent of the respondents project growth in cabin crew jobs in a span of two years. Meanwhile, 70 percent of them anticipate growth in the industry in about 10 years.

The greatest need for cabin crew lies in the markets of Asia-Pacific and Middle East, and Africa. These regions stand as the top growth market today, based on the IATA’s 20-year forecast.

All these facts and figures point out to one significant truth: now is the perfect time to apply as a cabin crew.

At the OMNI Airline Training Academy, individuals interested in becoming flight attendants may take the Cabin Crew Training Program. The Academy offers a rigorous training that equips aspiring cabin crew with the skills and knowledge that every flight attendant must have.

To further strengthen the core of its program, the OMNI Airline Training Academy tied up with John Robert Powers. The partnership intends to enhance the Personality Development course of the training in the Academy.

Airlines May Accept Aspiring Pilots with No College Degree

The aviation industry anticipates a greater demand for pilots in the Asia-Pacific region in the coming years. Approximately 250,000 pilots are needed in the airline industry in the next 20 years.

Many administrators of flying schools have been asking airline companies to accept senior high school graduates who took up and finished flying courses. Given the K+12 curriculum rolled out, this should be enough to suffice the education they need for the airline industry.

The OMNI Airline Training Academy is one of the few flying schools nationwide with flight simulators. The flying school trains its students through its intensive and comprehensive programs, with the help of experienced instructors.
