Freight DogsFinally a forum for those midnight prowler types who utilise the unglamorous parts of airports that many of us never get to see. Freight Dogs is for pilots and crew who operate mostly without SLF.
No news on the grnd school that I know of. Anyways really hope they start soon. Would love to see A300 B4s again in the skies of Mid-East and Indo-Pak (as planned) BTW was looking out for Midex Flight to ORY on Flightstats. It seems like they have started their AAN-BEY-ORY flights. Would appreciate if anybody out there at AAN/BEY/ORY can get a picture. Thanks
@Aviator Call +971 3 7854470 and ask for Chief Pilot OR Mr. Anthony Grass (director ops) Alternatively go to www.midexairlines.com check their contacts page. It has Mr. Anthony's Office, cell and email listed.
Btw which position are you applying for? Good luck
On June 25 th Midex Airlines made it's 1st official landing at BEY. Hope more to come. Saw a pic in US Today upon arrival in Bey. But still no news about further operation and scheduled flights to other destinations for A300B4's and B-747. Only know it operates AAN-BEY-ORY 3x a week with a A300B4. Where is the B747? Still no news about the Groundcourse for the A300B4 guys. It may take a long time as they may have sufficient crew currently for this operation. I wander if they can cope as a "starting airline" with the raised fuel prices. Hope they'll survive though.
I came to know from a guy working for Midex (747) that the A300B4groundcourse has been posponed for some time now since there's a lack of qualified A300B4 instructors. It's hard to believe that not a single and U.A.E. DGCA qualified 300B4 instructor can't be found as still A300B4 trainingfacilities are available in Europe and the U.S. I'm wandering the real reasons for not sending the B4 guys to the groundcourse[/B]. Maybe too many A/C and not too many parcels??
Well I dont know why, but they could get it done by PIA Training Center in Karachi, Pakistan. It should be no problem with UAE DGCA as PIA was the one to launch EK with their B4s. Though PIA dont operate B4s anymore and their Sim is also sold out but I am pretty sure that the ground course can still be arranged pretty easily and at lot cheaper cost than the ones done in Europe or USA.......
Well go to Flight Stats, in the flight status section, try putting AAN-BEY or BEY-ORY in route setion and it would come up with MG1 Flight. Though MG is IATA for ex-Champion, which apparently has ceased ops.
Honestly, MIDEX not having business model/plan. Graas is not MIDEX staff, but only consultant who sold A/c to the president. Show run by 1 flight despatcher, and person on commercil frond who is non-airline, non-cargo, non ...sense. Saboor make good decison... get out soooon.
