Royal Air Maroc Junior First Officer

Greetings,

Has anyone joined RAM as a junior FO? Are they still hiring for this position?

How many flying hours total time are they looking for?

You only need the type rating for the Junior FO position. With 500 hours you are upgraded to First Officer.

I’m rolling my eyes at all this nonsense. I’ve flown with P2F “graduates” of RAM. Astronauts one and all.

So you can get hired with a fresh 200 hour CPL and a 737 rating?

this was a P2F job for years. The “graduates” thought very highly of themselves. I’m glad they’re hiring and paying people.

Is this an opportunity for fast-track fresh Cpl 200 hour ATP jet rated pilots, like with Ryanair & EasyJet?

It's pretty much the norm in Europe.

RAM is in Africa, can you confirm that fresh CPL pilots with a 737 type rating qualify for the position?

Regarding the bond, I agree. Paying for a type rating with no guarantee of a job as a fresh 200 hour CPL pilot is very risky in Africa.

“scheme” is the correct term.

This is both sad and hilarious at the same time. I'm going to go ahead and guess that the standard of English in some of those messages you got was wanting?

Does anyone got an interview with RAM without frozen ATP?

I tried applying for junior first officer through rishworth, apparently I have everything except a frozen ATP, as I’m only in possession of a CPL, though I have some time on 737CL, thought that will be advantageous but I guess not, does anyone has the same issue?? I will love to know if this is only from the agency.

Ps: i’m a rated 737NG and classic

By the time you finish your type rating, recruitment will be closed and you will be stuck with a type rating. So there is a huge risk of not getting hired
