Bear in mind also that if you have been unemployed for some time this last year that can play against you as it did for me.
Some of the guys who interviewed later than me got already the course while I'm still waiting and approaching the limit of the 1 year.
I have to say that I lost my last job in February 2012 and interviewed with EK in May. Then I got a new job after the summer but finally I wasn't flying for a period of around 7 months and they don't seem to like this situation at EK.
Maybe I'll be luckier next time!
Thanks god I've got a good and well paid job.

Btw, they told me in their last email that if we are not offered a course within the year period they'll give us priority to re-interview so forget about the rumors that they'll extend our application for some few more months

Nothing here.
Waiting since May 2012.
Heard that the last course was offered for April 14th which means that next should be May 2013. Too late I'm afraid.

Are they still calling people out for FO interviews? Or are they still concentrating on DECs at the moment?

Well according to some of the other threads on here DEC recruitment has ceased for the moment. Apparently there are a few DEC in a hold pool waiting to be allocated courses.

FO recruitment seems to be happening but at a much slower rate. Suggestions are that it may speed up as we move into the new financial year. People have also suggested that due to the high number of applications EK are concentrating their efforts on Boeing & Airbus rated guys.

Disclaimer... all of this i've picked up from this forum...

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.

Hi guys...

there seems to be a lot of different informations depending on who you are asking. Myself and a few other mates got the emails this week, saying that we are all in the Holding Pool. We all had 3000+ hours of Airbus and we were all assessed for the A380, despite the fact that they kept the door open for the A330. I personally think we will be sent to the whale as it really doesn't make much sense to send us to the 330, when they are going and we all have the reqs for DEFO A380. Since day one, on the email, we were all assessed for the whale.

The big ? is regarding the start date... initially they said it would be quick... then in Dubai they said September / October... now some people is saying December. I believe the holding pool of Airbus guys is quite empty, and I am on the first group as we did the assessment in December, with the second stage in early Feb.

Has anybody got any inside info to help us understanding what is going on training wise?

Thanks a lot for your help!

Take care.
