       Year = Hours on jets over 25t / 800
       The above number is rounded up to the next whole number
    Example:
       An FO with 801 hours will start in year 2.

2     All captains irrespective of their experience enter in year 1.

3     Refunds will be paid back to you upon the proof of payment which is usually a valid
      receipt, the so called “fapiao”

                -    vocational disability
      The monthly amount will be paid (back dated) upon the completion of the required
      years of service. In practice, JI’s accounting department will pay this money into a
      specially set up interest bearing account. If you stay the required number of years, JI
      will not only pay you the agreed upon sum but also the interest on it.
