Hello! I can confirm, after talking with Cargolux representatives at Pilot Expo, that hiring can be expected probably soonest end of this year, beginning next year. One of the reason is delay in production of their 777s.

Thank you for sharing the information.
Were you able to get any sort of details of what will they be looking for (type ratings, minimum hours…) and how many pilots will they be looking to hire? I was not able to go to Pilot expo this year unfortunately, so would really appreciate the information.
I have ATPL, over 3000htt, almost all in Airbus (so no Boeing rating here), and above 1500h on heavy aircraft

I'm not sure about the number of pilots but they will be looking from 1500hrs, NTR. I have a brochure I can send once I will get back home next week. PM me if interested.

I tried to send PM, don’t know if you were able to read it, but when you replied back I got a notification that my inbox is full, although I don’t have any messages there. Does anybody here got the same issue that could give a solution for it? Thank you

Hello All, I would like some latest guidance on the selection day for CargoLux? The type of attitude testing used? What aptitude testing programme would recommend to practice? What’s the outline of the day? Any tips for the simulator assessment ? What does the company medical consist of? Thanks in advanced,

The medical is EASA standard medical with an additional drug/alcohol test.
Testing is straight forward and tailored to your age. You will get test exaples which you have to practice at least 10 times before approved for the test.
SIM is all raw data manual flying. Old school with holdings, interceptions, ILS, windshear.
However most important is an EASA licemce with the right to live and work in the EU.
I see your location is Mexico.
Good luck when they start hiring again.

no, as the paperwork is not signed yet- but no significant change from previous CWA. Just expect some spelling out of details as a change.

Hi everyone,

Anyone knows someone who didn't get a permanent job offer when the temporary contract expired?

Thanks!

The only question that matters here. I am also very interested about the chances to get a permanent contract after the 15months initial one.

Hi all!
For those, who applied. Would you mind dropping a comment here if you ended up being called for selection? And maybe share a bit of background on you (hours, experience, etc)
For the time being with meeting the minimum requirements (1500 jet time on A320), coming from european low-cost, not called yet.

Thanks

Hi all!
Obviously I have no idea how many applicants may be, but whoever applied, would you mind dropping a comment if you got called for the selection? I would be very interested in discovering the pattern: what experience you have, when did you apply, after how long did they contact you, when is the selection, etc.

For my side, minimum required hours on A320, so far no news.
