... well apparently THY is looking for big numbers and I'm quite positive you do not need to have the citizenship to join the team. Definitely a full JAA ATP is recommended for DEC, not sure if for DEFO a JAA CPL + JAA frozen are enough!

Guys, they have been looking for about 14-15 mths or more now.
Vacancy has been on their own website, and for the last 8mths or so has been advertised by EVERY agency in Europe & some even further afield (and that is no exaggeration). They recently changed from JAA to "any" licence.
Why ?
Search function is your friend, what is on offer is not all you would wish to expect from a "flag carrier".

It seems to me that they have been looking and interviewing people for a long time now but I have not heard of anyone who have actually started working there yet. Does anyone know?

Will they really find 600 FOs with 4 years of university background?

Are they maybe out for a contract type of employment system such as Ryan? 600 FOs probably means that the current ones will have to leave...

THY is DREAMING

There is no way they are going to fill all those positions. Not with the current requirements they have. Type rating/time on time! I don't think so. they'll be competing against Korean, Vietnam, Air Arabia, FlyDubai, just to name a few. All of them with better terms and conditions.

The only chance they have is to pick up some of the more experienced furloughed guys from US and EU by dumping the more restrictive requirements and provide the training.

When they send me the requirements I thought it was a joke!!! 4 years university no blocks of days off!! 1.500 hours on aircraft of more than 27 Tones with 500 on type, 3000 total!!
Being so close of home without being able to go home!!
I hope these guys wake up, it would have been a great chance to go back to Europe

I'm also interest in hearing from anyone who has been through the screening and testing process at Turkish Airlines in the last month or so.
I noted that there is a written exam, plus two days of sim checks. Just want to know what to study and what anyone's experiences have been.
