They are scheduled to start operations on 23rd sep. First aircraft has arrived Jed and ready on the ramp. And second one is on the way. Looks like a good start.

Just few questions about Flyadeal;
- Do you fly on a validation as an expat or you get a Saudi license?
- How long is your training last? Are you paid only basic while in training or full pay?
- What kind of standard accommodation is provided? what the average family Apartments cost please?

Your feedback would be greatly appreciated
Thanks
Ex..

Ex..
1. You would obtain a Saudi License.
2. Training, Probably, 6 months.
3. You'll be paid basic salary because the remainder of your salary is productivity pay which of course you'll get per block hour flown.
4. Accommodation will probably be hotel initially. I presume at some point in the future they will find a compound.

@Mutt, not to pilots but to FAD.



No Polax, they'll pay for 80hrs (including productivity) right from the start. And that's all even when you fly on the line, up to 80. Nothing more nothing less. They should be getting a compound in few months, probably beginning of next yr.

Hey there.any contacts for the applications? For the pilots of course.

Thanks

The new package offered to SVA crews to go on loan is pretty impressive.

Lets think about that... 1) An only native english speaker job in the time of 2030. Not likely...

2) Only a native arabic job in a time of captain shortage... Again, not likely...

The rumour out there is only Arab Cabin crew. I doubt even that is true.

you will be paid for 80h block whether you fly 80 or not, the training takes approximately 15 days which include ( 5 days basic indoc, 3 days sim , 2 days line training + 1 day line check ) this what they have offered for us. I think this is a special program since we hold GACA A320 Rating

There is a special deal for SVA crews to transfer to FAD for 6-12 months, their offered deal is good, especially if they are instructors. But so far I haven't seen this deal offered to direct hires.

How about guys who are not GACA licensed? How long did it take for them to clear?

Would appreciate any info on the interview and sim check, heard abt it being NO FD and NO A/THRST sim check.

Why would they offer it to direct hires when they have enough applications. recruitment sessions are full for the next 6 months.

Insider news?

Hi,
Did anybody hear some insider news from FAD in JED and their real set-up now?
Reg. training period, foreign vs. GACA licenses, accommodation, scheduling, commuting, crew-pairings, C/C, crew atmosphere etc?
Would appreciate some news from people knowing the FAD situation, not only wannabes....!
Many thanks
