That must be for FO's or new Capt's. Certainly not for experienced 737 DEC's joining the company

No changes on T&C's. Rumors are that 777 has enough pilots (due recent influx og pilots from Etihad and Jet Airways) but that, if you've got 500 hours on 787, you are welcome

Thank you for your continuous update. Some rumors has it that there is a small exodus of pilots lately. Any truth to this?

Anybody know what the double taxation v tax paid certificate actually means for a UK resident commuting contract pilot. How much if any UK tax will need to be paid?

Heyy Italian Stud..ehhm..Stalion

As far as I know, it's a mix of mostly 2 legs around Africa and the Middle East, and a few 4 leg days close by. They used to easily reach 110 hours/month but latest news is that its more relaxed at the moment. 80-90 hours, 100 tops. Must be the grounded Max's. Best personal regards to you :-)

Mozambique and Chad

Hi all.
Any info on the Ethiopian-run operations in Mozambique and Chad? Sounds like they need lowly Q drivers like myself.

Real 777.787 salary(USD) is as follows:
9000 basic
1200 perdiem (60/day for 20 days)
1250 housing (paid in local currency)
2 yearly bonus of 5400 USD
overtime exceeding 80 hrs 112.5 USD.

anything different you see on the web is a mistake or a lie,
old contracts had an yearly 9000 usd after the third year of service. now they removed it but people keep coming....

I am considering applying...:
  • Does anyone know the 777/787 schedules ? What do you fly in those 20 days on.
  • Is 14 days of yearly leave serious ?
  • is housing good and safe enough to actually move with your spouse to Addis ?
  • What could you rent there for US$1250 ?

Hi All

With regard to 777 DEC, other than the firm tickets to and from work, what other staff travel perks do you get, for you and direct family, ie wife and kids, and what other airlines are available, for eg, is Emirates available as an option via staff travel?

Thanks in advance.

777 roster is basically all over the world except australia and beyond. You will be double rated on 787 also and flying usa/south america europe asia africa and middle east. Both pax and cargo.
14 days are real vacation, better if requested in advance. sometimes you get them as you want sometimes not as in any airline.
addis used to be a very safe city, now the situation is a bit worse and it s better not to go out alone at night.
frankly i would not bring my wife here but not only for the safety.
the housing allowance is not enough to have a house or apartment for you only unless you go outside the city ftom where you need a lifetime to go to work at peak hours.
ticket benefit are 6 round trip/year for you and wife/children with ethiopian and other airline through zed agreements.
this does not include your monthly ticket home after the 20 days

Many Thanks Trimaranus, much appreciated. do you happen to have any updated info on the interview process, such as the interview itself, and the sim ride?

Thanks Again
