Hi,

Applied to Cargolux recently this July 2022. No news so far so I don't expect an invitation anytime soon. On their online portal just says 'application received'.

I wonder that they might be flooded of applications taking into account many people in Cathay Pacific are resigning, and there are many rated 747 drivers there. Just a guess.

All in all if anyone has info about the selection process would be greatly appreciated, I couldn't find much and there is nothing in latestpilotjobs.com so any info is welcome.

Safe flights.

Hey guys,

A few questions about T&C:
In a normal month to how much do the allowances amount (everything tax free)? (4e/hr, sunday, night time, ecc.)
What kind of gross salary can be expected after 4-5 years in the company (excluding allowances)?
Is there a profit sharing plan in place?

Quite interested in this airline and its operations. For who came from SH...did you encounter difficulties adapting to the night flights+jet lag (cargo ops in general)?

Good luck to everyone applying.

Hello Everyone,

I would like to ask if anyone knows if they require 747 TR to be accepted for the selection process.
I have been checking in aviation jobs which is where I found the initial job offer and it does not say that 747 is required but some places the requirements are not precise or don't match the reality from what the Airline desires.

Have a good day.

Hi all

Has anybody received an invite to the current recruitment tranche? It’s been open since the beginning of July, but I’m optimistically hoping I haven’t heard anything because they are still accepting applications!

any information either way would be great fully received, this is something of a life changing job if I can get myself in the door!!

cheers everyone, Dag

Did you apply as non type rated?

Same here, I applied mid July but no news yet. I was also hoping they would wait till the applications are closed to invite for selections, but I have no idea how they handle applications.

Any information would be welcome!

Hey, does anybody know the Cargolux rules about getting a second chance? I did the IBF test about 10 years ago. Rated. Cheers.

Private life

Hi all,

This question most probably already has been answered a couple of times. But since things change quite often i thought i ask it again.

How do you judge the private life at CV at the moment?
i understand you have 2 blocks off per month of 7 days and 5 days. To be honest that does not sound like much. I understood you can use vacation days to increase the days off on your off blocks.

we have 2 kids, my wife is working part time.
i am just wondering, will I ever be home and will I be alive when I am at home?

everything looks great about CV i just got my doubts about the private life.

curious to what you guys know or what the experience is from guys flying at CV

thank you so mucht for the help and effort

you are more or less 50% off per year including vacation days. That is the good part.

The proces of actually getting your off days as requested is a lottery. One month you might, the next month you get the complete opposite. Which makes it hard to plan your private life. Especially if you are a commuter. It makes it easier if you live within a couple of hours driving from LUX. Also keep in mind that when you start in CLX you are at the bottom of the seniority list. Off & Vacation days are (supposed to) being granted on seniority. With two school going kids this might cause a little frustration.

Thank you for your answer.
we live a little over 6 hours drive away, maybe a bit difficult in that case.

yes i guess if you can plan and you can create a 8 or 9 on 6 or 7 off it could be very nice, but you need the security.

regarding the part time, you can only get it after 3 year I understood, and after a year after requesting it, you have to get it as I understand according to the CWA. But does this mean you can apply after 2 year and have it after 3. Or you can only apply after 3 years, so might take 4 years?
