I'm also looking for information on them as well. Do you know about their compensation packages for first officers and other benefits?

You're right. I've heard of the week figures for years. Thought it had change. Flying pay is added to the $4400 I believe right?

no. Unless it’s over the contractual minimums. Count on what they offer unless you go over mins.

Any chance you have the figures for Captains on the 737?
I thought it was around 6000$ all included but if that's almost what FOs make then it must be higher.
Thanks!

It's never been the greatest gig, I mean 8 weeks on for starters???
I'm sure the constant advertising for crew is not so much expansion as due to that nobody wants to fly for those T's and C's.

This has been posted before on other threads. It was $8000 for Skippers. It WAS a good gig. The Greeks ran flight ops. Then......came......The Thpanith.....then african astronauts from Arik. The Africans were better than the Thpanith. 737 Fleet Manager is a Greek. That fleet runs well. Nice city, nice country, nice climate. Ok place to hang your hat to maintain currency till something else better comes along. Did I mention The Thpanith were horrible?

be careful with the commuting wording. Captain Ricardo Naval of Thpain stopped the commuting tickets and only allowed tickets to Europe. Btw, the Canary Islands are considered Europe. The commuting ban affected half the pilot group and it turns out, tickets to the Canary Islands were actually more expensive than to N America and W afrika. Did ”the agency” that recruited pilots that starts with an R and based in Ireland assist their pilots? Nope! Thankfully, these Thpanith management types were chased out and some even declared PNG by the Rwandese. Just make sure whoever you use, abides by the contract. It HAS been violated.

LRozenberg your inbox is full.
I dont know much except the venue will be in Nairobi, sim scenario more or less same as for PC (N-1, raw data approach...) and system questions during interview.
Seems straightforward and friendly but a certain level of performance is required.
Good luck and tell us!
Cheers
