That sounds like a mighty fine idea there lad. The rest who want to join could also do us proud. By the way, I am off to Mauritius in acouple of weeks and will be happy to give you feedback. Oh but wait, you want to work there, not holiday there!!?!

Lets stick to the pub lunch then.

Post Air Mauritius pay rise

According to a local news paper Air Mauritius local pilots got up to 20% pay rise to close the gap between local employed and expats. Does anybody have more information on the new contract.

Question

Has anyone got any info on Air Mauritius? Salary, perks, time to command, entry requirements and so on. Have heard that they only consider applicants who have been recommended by someone within the airline. What is it like living on the island? Is it the island paradise it's made out to be? Also, any idea how Sep 11 has affected them?
Any info appreciated.

Smile Air Mauritius Hiring

Just wondering if anyone out there has any information on Air Mauritius. Are they a good company to work for and that sort of thing. What are their requirements. I keep hearing rumours of guys getting jobs with them with very low time(200-300hrs)and just the bare licence. Is it a hard company to get into? What's there selection process like and also what's it all about?. .Finally the rumours are they hire quite regularly, is there any truth to this?. .Thank you in advance everyone for any light you may be able to shed on this topic. I also encourage people who have worked for them and currently working for them to reply if possible. Cheers. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Smile]" src="smile.gif" />

Guys, thank you so far. If anyone else has any friends or relatives who works in the airline, your help would be muchly appreciated. I knew there mins was 1500TT & CIRME, but I hear of them recruiting pilots with less than that. Is it true they prefer the French ATPL?

MK940, from sources in the know the only 2-300 hr pilots in the company are the Mauritian cadets, all others require type rating and hrs.. .They are looking for ATR captains at the moment.. .Preferably UK atpl but others ok, not too sure about US.. .They have a fairly high turnover of crew either due to the company or the living conditions, depends on who you talk to.. .We went for a holiday about a year ago and except for the hotel were very dissapointed, can understand why wives etc could arc up.. .Go for a holiday and have a look for yourself, housing and food are expensive also, depending on what fleet your on money's pretty ordinary.. .Hope this helps.

Licences: they accept any ICAO acceptable licence. There are SA, Australian, French, Zimbabwe, UK, Italian and other licence holders there.. .. .Yes they are looking for ATR guys, but might have filled the slots already I hear.. .. .My sources tell me they have also just recruited about 6-7 pilots for the A340. Apparently ex-Sabena.

Thank you all for taking the time to reply. It has cleared up a few questions I had. If anyone knows more about MK, please do not hesitate to post a reply. . .More importantly about the interviews and their whole selection process. Thanks again. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />

[email protected] but don't expect a reply !!.. .My sources tell me that the only way to be in with a chance is to be type rated and send them a resume to add to thier ever growing pile.. .If they require someone they select from this pile and notify you either by phone or mail for an interview in Mauritius.. .. .The interview is a half day affair with written questionairs then the personal interview with the cp's of each fleet. You'll be questioned on tech airmanship and crm subjects.. .. .good luck.

Again thanks for your help guys. I guess this is a start and hope to hear from more people. . .I spoke with a guy who flys choppers with them but he wasn't much help. Told me exactly what some of you guys have mentioned. . .He did say about having to know people in the company, but high up helps. Also about not answering emails. I heard they're trying to nationalise their crew. Anyone know something about this? Makes sense but also I hear the reverse of this, that they only say this to please certain people in the company. Not sure what to believe.

I am sorry to tell you but you can't send your cv by e-mail. they don't know how to use it. you will have to send it by mail but the chances that they will get back to you are very very small
