Korean require a university Degree , Turkish require 1500 TT (very strict on this) Small planet finished Fo recruitent , have been sending CV's to the turkish airlines but have not been getting a response , aviation CV have advertised a 737 gig in Brazil 500 on type still no response from aviation CV after sending them 4 or so e-mails
Turkish Airlines have F/O positions using Parc Aviation I believe, you might have to check the website and see if it's still open. Depending on your other flight time on top of your 1k on type you may be eligible.
Forget it there are no Jobs. I am a current B737 First officer, currently flying with ATPL, over 1500TT around 1000hrs on 737NG. I have been looking for jobs over the past half year. I have also applied anywhere, even companies I would not want to work for just to see if I could get a positive response. If you look at advertisments u might think there are a few jobs, but there will be always some small print requirement you don't have: Here a list where I have applied:
-Korean Air: small print Uni degree required... Dismissed
-Air Pacific: snmall print ( resident permit for USA, NZ or AUS... Dismissed
-Turkish: Not only 1500TT but 1500hrs on aircraft above 27tonnes I was told after applying... Dismissed
-Norwegian: Scandi Language preferred (Guess where the 1000 unhappy scandinavian ryr FO's will apply this summer.... No response.
-Some contract company in Brazil: Aviation CV only500hrs on type req... No response. Must be flooded with applicants...
-Qatar applied several month ago no response....
-Flydubai due to high number of applicants application on hold.....
- Contract in Pakistan (latestpilotjobs) 500 hrs on type 3500TT, non commuting and probably low money aswell... Who on earth would want to work and live in this hellhole, who has these kind of hours??.....
I really applied everywhere just to see if I could atleast get one positive response, I also applied in a professional manner with a well organized CV. And guess what not one positive reply.... This shows us how bad the situation really is...
@Inner you got something wrong: I have a job, I just applied anywhere to see what my chances really are, and If I could possibly find a better job.
emirates requires 3000 hrs on jet and is currently not recruiting Fo's. Etihad requires 2500hrs on jet. Lionair is doing P2fly with 0 hr guys, and never will be hiring experienced FO's. Why should they pay money for what they get for free.... Trust me I have applied anywhere possible, also companies I would never work for just to see what the marketvalue really is and the value is really 0- Thats fact....
I 100% agree with ronand I have also applied to all of these compnaies to no avail , aviation CV are a pain in the ass , they advertise a position and then do not respond to e-mails even telling you if the position actually exists
Is that the end of the road? I am affraid it could be the turning moment but it will be most likely missed. In the same moment I am writing this I have a banner on the right side with a guaranty of 500 hrs on type if you do a new typerating and after that? back to square one. Saturated market, to get the T&Cīs back on track, upwards of course. (for those who cannot guess).
A few years back I made over 10kīs net per month. At the same time Iīve got offered 9K job, did not take it, today the offer is below 9k and there are still takers, unbelieveable but sadlu true. Would you pay more if you get the same around the corner cheaper?
Just for all who havenīt got the drive by now: Time is over where Aircrews laying at the beach (or the bitch) and do a few trips per month. After return to home get enough days off to recover from what?
Flying became too cheap, the beancounters love it, the salesperson as well. Rockbottom and one day the earthquake shakes it up.
I retire in a few years, seeing sadly a nice profession going down the drain. No long term committments anymore, part time, summer contract, zero time applicants rejected. People sending in a CV, well mannerd, not even a single reply from HR, no manners anymore! All that contributes towards the downturn.
