It appears that you do not have the minimum stated FO requirements which are, from the EK website:
- A minimum of 4000 hours total flying time (may include 25% P3 or FEO time to a max of 500 hours)
- A minimum of 2000 hours multi-crew, multi-engine jet aircraft (P3 time cannot be used for this requirement).
OR
- A minimum of 2500 hours total flying time on a modern commercial multi-engine, multi-crew aircraft jet (P3 time cannot be used for this requirement)
As your jet hours appear to be on a corporate, not commercial aircraft, you would not be accepted for the 2500 hour group.
Generally there is a preference for pilots with significant commercial experience.
As Emirates does not accept Sim hours, they would likely not give credit for your A320 rating.
You can always submit an application, but the likelihood being invited for an interview is extremely remote

Hey guys.

I was told that the last offers went for April 14th. Nothing after that, at least on the 777.
They told me that the next courses for Boeing will be at the end of the year and that because of this my application will be over and I will have to re-interview.

Maybe Airbus guys will have a chance.

Good luck.

So no Boeing courses for around 8 months?! Wow! Things are slowing down, that sounds unprecedented.

Some of you are going to have some real problems working for EK and living in Dubai based on the impatience you demonstrate in your posts.......

It's all about supply and demand , right now lots of supply. Also remember they try to not hire lots from any one country all at once.

They confirmed me that there was no course for Boeing (apparently Airbus is no longer an option for Boeing guys) so I could just plan to re-interview in April (interviewed May 2012).
If you try to contact them they can give you more info now.
Don't want to look too pessimistic but for Boeing guys from May last year is over, don't know for the bus... But we're already at the end of March, if there was a course for you in May you should have been contacted before I'm afraid...

They kindly offered me to interview again in April even if the 1 year period wasn't yet over, but I had to refuse.
If you try to reach them you may have an interview date for next month and then a joining date before the end of this year.

Good luck!

Has anyone got anymore news about FO courses. Maybe new forecasts have come out with the new financial year?

Just to clarify, it's 3000hrs on a 'modern jet' including 1500 of airbus time to be considered for the A380.

Hope you get called soon.

Keep in mind that modern jet would be 73NG/777/744/320 /330/340 , 310/75/76 are now a bit old. there is plenty of 320 pilots with 1000's of hours 320 ie 5000 + . no shortage at the present time. seem that it's all about the 380 for the next little while. good luck to all.
