and it could be an awesome job if one had basings and sensible management
Sounds like you're living the frying pan/fire life Boris - it isn't much better in the sandpit is it?

no grass

Yes we have no grass here ,we have lousy management ,no basings etc etc BUT there is stuff to do at least.
Mauritius was very limited in activities and general recreation.
Hey ,at least the heat has been switched down to simmer as winter is on its way.
I dont regret my decision to leave M but i might regret my decision to come here when the 1000 hr annual limit is rubber stamped.That is going to be a nightmare of biblical proportions as we are all exhausted now ,how are we going to feel then.NO GREASE WILL BE ISSUED.Take it like men...
I always try and stay positive and my lower lip is still stiff but i do anticipate a quiver shortly. ha ha

Air Mauritius ab-initio scheme 2006/2007

Thank you guys for the PMs and postings..

It's always nice to meet quality wannabees all the time here..
MK's top floor management had been going through a reshuffling since some time and it's only a few days back that some of it was reflected in the press..

One thing for sure,the ab-initio scheme has been delayed because of the existing conflicts inside the board..

The actual state of the company hasn't been bright due to lousy decisions and delayed planning..But anyways,the upcoming team will work on various pending issues..

As far as I know and investigated,the much awaited ab-initio sheme is on its way..and from what I see around me inside management,MK is definitely not going to concentrate it's cadets in only one air school due to it's needs..

Will keep thread updated..

Air Mauritius ab-initio scheme 2007

Dear ppruners..

Thank you mates for the numerous replies and PMs..

MK is gradually going through restructuring..Anyways,it's nothing new as the actual team had too many internal conflicts and it was about time..

Unfortunately,the ab-initio scheme had been delayed because of lousy decisions and unprecedented events within the management..
Now,the games are set and the race will soon start..It's interesting to see this time that applications are already coming in although the scheme itself hasn't been launched..
And the number of qualified self-sponsored Mauritian pilots is increasing in the pool of applicants..

Rumours inside management is that the next scheme shall be launched either on August 2007 or December 2007..It's highly possible that the selection exercise shall start as from August 2007 itself..

Also,fact is that the current Air Mauritius cadets at the 43 Air School in South Africa will complete their training sometimes by the end of year 2007..
..and to maintain a flow in cockpit crew intakes,the next batch of MK cadets should start training by the end of 2007..

Will keep thread updated..

next selection

Interesting stuff. Ab-initio applications coming in even though selection might not be til next August! What about self-sponsered students finishing training before then? Do they have to wait until August and possibly December??!
I recently spoke to 43 who said they were expecting the next batch early next year, but agreed that with Air Mauritius you never know. Its good that 43 will be conducting the next selection, whenever that may be.

Air Mauritius

Thanks mate for the reply..

Just too bad but that's the latest news inside MK..
It's not always essential for an airline to plan its intake according to some student pilots course completion..Wish it was that way but it isn't..

I know quite of lot of guys in MK who waited for years before being accepted in the ab-initio program and it is really frustrating to a point..

But anyway,it is happening next year and at least,all wannabees can prepare themselves well in advance..

The selection exercise is going to be done and conducted by MK..
43 or another designated Air School might just bring some assistance if necessary as the previous screening and selection exercises were successful..

Will keep thread updated..

43,MPL,WAAC and MK

Cheers for the news Ravi. August next year suits me just fine so i'm happy!

I understood that 43 will have a major say in providing assistance for the selecting, which I personally think would be a good thing. 3 drop-outs after less than 25hrs (ish) is not what I consider to be a successful selection process!!!

Might the other school be Western Australia Aviation College by any chance?? I understand they provide JAR training now.

Also, does anyone know what the implications of the up-and-coming MPL license will be?? Time and money wasted on the fATPL? Hopefully the MPL is still a few years away!

would be great if one of the 2006/2007 cadets who recently joined AirMtius with a CPL elaborate on this please.
cheers

Air Mauritius ab-initio scheme 2007

Thank you guys for all the PMs and enquiries..

Indeed it is happening and it is going to be faster this time..The Scheme was official as from Friday itself and like it's been happening all the time,potential mauritian pilots will converge from all parts of the world and participate in this exercise..

It is estimated that the selection exercise will be completed within 6 months and the potential cadets will be sent to 43 Air School for training..
The school will be maintained as the standards are high and the actual cadets over there are keeping track with Air Mauritius standards..

There was quite some lobby from an Aeronautical institution but management remained conservative over the offers..

Rumours inside management is that by September,the new batch will already be there and a 25hr assessment will be subjected to each of them..basically,the same conditions like on the previous batch..

Air Mauritius will double the number of cadets this time though it remains to be confirmed..With the ongoing drain of expats in the company,this ab-initio scheme is just a beggining..and it is expected in 5 years time..with the growing fleet..80% of the flight deck crew will be local pilots..

Good luck to all the guys and girls out there willing to join this scheme..
Cheers..
