I am a TRI on the Airbus A320, and very soon becoming an SFE on the same type. I have applied to EK recently, and I am waiting to hear back from them for a First Officer Position. I now see the vacancies for SFI/Es, and I wonder if my Training Background could help me getting a position as an FO, or if it might mean they will only offer me a non flying position as an SFI. I would like to join as an FO and do some training aside of the flying, but I would definitely like to be considered for a flying position. No point of leaving my job here in Europe otherwise.
Any help or suggestion on how to address them regarding my training background? Can I use that in my favor?
Thanks a lot for your help and time!
