They do and have a couple of bonding formulas. I'd avoid working with Confair, Mountain High should be better.

Stay away from Confair!!!

As a matter of fact, don't go there at all!!!!!!
max pay for a captain is $487 per day and if they don't need you, you'll be sitting at home on ULV.
For a new joiner, you're talking $155 per day, all included, don't be surprised to be sitting at home for 4 months in a row.....
This is their great invention, unpaid leave........ .
everything arranged for the pinguins, but as a contractor your f.cked.....
they even started not renewing peoples contracts because they asked for hour statements and letters of recomendarions, your hart is not with the company anymore............
Did I mention $50 per diem per day, no matter where you are in the world?????????? After lunch, you're finished, no matter where you are.
I can show you the contract, been there for many years, and the answer was: 'there is no future for you here'
Now WOW has gone bankrupt, a lot of these fine (?) pilots will go to Air Atlanta, pinguins first.............

Rotation / route's

Could anyone give some info/example how a rotation out of Jeddah might look like? (Destinations/layovers/duty time etc..)

ACMI so no such thing as an fixed schedule I get that but just wondering how it looks today.


PS. I am aware of the con's but I fly long enough to share that every job has it's disadvantages

Hi all,
Anyone having passed their assessment recently
Any info on how long we can expect to remain Cruise Relief FO before Moving to FO?
What about salary as contractor? Still the same as mentioned above (2018)?

I have the same question. I see the requirement for First Officer is 500 hours on transport category jets and only 300 hours total time for cruise relief.
If one joins with around 300 hours of 737, is it reasonable to expect the possibility to upgrade to FO with 200 hours on the line with AAI?

1-2 years for upgrade from CR to FO. Min. 500 on type, then after assessment first available course (normally in late autumn).

Thanks DUFO for your reply. In that case I'd better stay put and apply in a few months with 500 hours of 737 and hope to be called for an assessment as FO.

I am a SFO in my late 30s. I have around 10000h, mostly A320, MD11 and B777. If they were hiring, is there a chance for a accelerated command?

Accelerated command used to be possible at AAI, but I would suggest you to ask this question during the initial online interview with one of the recruiters for more up to date information.
