Hong had experience as a deputy captain in four years before the August 1 promotion.

The budget carrier now has 41 Vietnamese pilots. According to regulations, after an official training course, each pilot has to experience 150 flight hours before becoming a deputy captain. To be a captain, the pilot accumulates at least 4,000 flight hours and passes a test which meets international standards.

Jetstar Pacific, whose two major shareholders are Vietnam Airlines and Australia-based Qantas Group, operates flights between 16 destinations in Vietnam and 180 others in 18 countries around the world. –VNA
