I am interested in Cargolux as well. Living about 2,5 hrs from LUX. So depending in the roster I think should be doable to drive from home to LUX and back after duty.

I tried to apply via Interpersonal.de but I cannot finish my application because I have to upload my school diploma wich I can't find at the moment. Is it really required to apply?

Currently flying as PIC C17 at the Heavy Airlift Wing based down in Papa, Hungary.

Would Cargolux be interested in a military cargo guy?

Cheers

Mike, unless you are 744 rated you will be last in a very long line of applicants.........

CLX only for Malpensa?

... found this at http://www.facebook.com/ATTCcom:

" Cargolux Italia is recruiting B747 Crews

CLX Italia launched operations in 2009 operating 7 flights/week from Milan to Dubai, Hong Kong, Osaka, Almaty, São Paulo and Luxembourg with a Boeing 747-400 freighter. "

Do they look only for the italian branch?

rgds,

pemac

Is there anyone who could give an update? Is CV expecting to recruit or call the people who are in the holding pool? Maybe end of this year? Or am I to optimistic?

Local media recently reported that, as pilot union rejected new Collective Work Agreement, to meet cost cutting measures flight crew numbers may have to be reduced.......could be Management waving the big stick though.

trigger21: during the week plenty of flights by LG into London, during the weekend things get complicated due to the few available flights. Nothing is impossible, but you end up spending a lot of your time off commuting..

They are hiring pilots now, will they be able to find enough type rated pilots, or will the non-type rated stand a chance? I was contacted about a month ago, asked if I have a 747 rating, which I don't have.
