1500H guranteed, are you factoring that in to price? I still agree with you, but your looking at roughly the same cost even for other MPL's out there. Although they are still a little cheaper.

This thread is going around like a circlejerk with the same discussion.

So is this a Pay2Fly scheme now? Paying cos you get 1500 hours?

It is absolutely mad, the cost of the course is absolutely through the roof at 130,000 and that does not even include visa costs (how greedy are this school!? - that is a new low)
The starting pay is not enough to live on at all in that area and so you will likely have to borrow more cash to survive even AFTER training.

Oh and the selection is 700!? It leaves a reasonable thinking person speechless.

Sorry, I am totally lost as to who in their right mind can see this as a good deal.

You are being fleeced. Plain and simple. Add up the MPL costs, what you are paying, compare salaries on this scheme to others - it is very clearly the worst deal of the lot. Unless I was not accepted anywhere else/failed on all the better courses I would not go near this place - it will be a backup for severe failure.

It's a bunch of rich kids with a fancy toy that happens to be an a320.

To answer the posters question the assessment shouldn't be difficult at all but you must be warned of Alpha and ABYs constant change in policies and unforeseen delays.

When the pilot factory continues at the pace they're going at , there's not going to be jobs for everyone and to even get to 1500 hours might take a long long time

Good amount of female:male ratio. Not 1:1 but it's not bad.

Female doesn't matter , no discrimination like that, most important thing is your ability to pay the money.

Are there delays for the base training and line training again ? Out of curiosity where does ABY do base training ? OMSJ or OMRK?

How many hours a month are the MPLs flying during training ?

5-1 year to complete what 750 hours ? Can someone please explain when these MPLs get checked and released to the line ?

Also what if after 1500 , ABY doesn't want you anymore , is the 110,00 AED paid in full to you or is it pro rated?

Would appreciate if someone could clarify on this and the latest delays in each stage

I know you don't want me to answer but:

After 1,500HRS you can move to EY, QR or get your MPL converted to ATPL. (at extra cost)

The 5 > month is for basic flying stage. Selected school is full of cadets.

Lol no beef mate, but it's still not clear ;

Specifically , my question was on the 110,000 AED- I know that it's paid back to you monthly , if you are cut at any stage is it pro rated it paid back in full? If it's not paid back in full this is really bad

What does basic flying stage mean ?! How many sectors till you are released to line and how long does it take from day one of Line training ? What happens contractually when you are released to line ?

When do you know if you are staying or going and on what basis are they evaluating besides operational needs?

And finally the latest round of delays , what's the story behind that?

New selection procedure

Hello guys
I have done the assessments at Alpha Aviation on 26th Jan.
I have passed everything however they are saying that there is a new procedures implemented for the selection process. So the management is going to review assessment results of the candidate and further decide for the acceptance.

Has anyone been noticed before or is there anyone knows about it?

@Dogkim

That's terrible what Your saying. They keep changing rules and every year the program seems to be getting worse. Now they keep You waiting after the panel interview? Amateurs....

Unless they want to ease You to waiting, which You will be doing a lot with all the delays they have.

And will only be noticed approximately 40days before preferred course start date. I don't understand what the heck this is.
I thought I could not dislike this school any more than I already do, they have just proven me wrong. This stinks of arrogance, "we will do whatever we want and treat you however we want and you'll just take it". This whole sham of a programme should be boycotted by all self respecting individuals.

Couldn't agree more, why didn't they tell you this before coming for the assessment ?! Just the sort of arrogance you are going to face throughout your time there.

More news - since this year there is NO GUARANTEE on 1500 hrs nor contract. Few students left behind with less that 500 hrs...and their 'Air Arabia licence' will not be accepted anywhere. This is SCAM !
