Cpt. Punishment,

Yes, if it works, and gets you a job for the vital first 1000 hours jet or so..

If Air Arabia is the destination airline of choice at the moment, why not simply give them a phone call? It shows a proactive side of yourself, plus it might give you the info you need to make an informed decision. If they tell you to PFO, well you know probably it isn't all that great. I am sure with a bit of research you could find the telephone number of someone there.

Personally I paid for a type rating as a GECAT cadet, that worked very well for me; 2 years later I am a senior FO on the A320 series at a large UK airline. That was two years ago sadly. This current climate doesn't have so many ways in, so if you can find one that works; fairplay!
