IMO a well written explanation 747-8 (post #119). I admire your enthusiasm for the future of Indonesian aviation and agree.
In my time many emerging countries suffered from lack of experience and technology in regard to aviation. Most took a Nationalistic approach, rather than safety, and suffered from too many accidents. Singapore Airlines, for example, was not immune and consequently employed foreign pilots. Korean Airlines, as we are all aware, had a paternalistic cockpit regime that caused a major navigation error and, consequently, employed foreign intervention into cockpit management protocol.
Indonesia is no different but comes late into the process that help is available. So long as National pride is foremost it is difficult to see a way forward but I agree with your premise....it is getting better....and that is why we need to promote and stop being negative.
btw I flew Lion Air 2 days ago JKT-DPS, it was a breezy day and the landing was exact. The Bali airport, on the other hand, is chaos. They need to get some better management to direct those entering to be on one side and those exiting on the other...it's not rocket science!!!

hey guys dont bother abt pilots, please think abt Air hosters @!!!
Add to that that parking space is woefully insufficient, traffic control is non-existent and the the feeder arteries to the airport are sclerotic.
this one's not fear-mongering, it seems like a real concern... Al-Jazeera English ran a report on air safety two days ago: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4dA3hOd-ecU
it explains so many things. so MANY.A boom in Indonesia's airline industry has meant that the country needs 800 pilots each year. But supply is failing to meet demand as flight schools in the nation are only able to train 350 people annually. As a result, pilots lacking sufficient qualifications are being fast tracked through the system without meeting appropriate safety training standards. Al Jazeera's Step Vaessen reports from the capital Jakarta.

I've landed in KL on a Lion Air flight hours ago and, as usual, the pilot smashed the plane on the tarmac. It was quite brutal and I think I won't complain anymore when landing in Manado.
