16down2togo, indeed very true. At the same time a very enjoyable post :D:ok:

No stupid rumours, please
Hotelpresident said "They normally look for pilots with long-haul experience. People who is used to oceanic flights."

This is absolutely not true... I say it again: this is a rumour you just want to create for a reason which is out of my knowledge, but this is NOT correct.

Assessment Saarlouis
Hi all,

I've been reading the whole tread and it is quite informative, thanks to all contributed :)

I was wondering if there is anyone who went to the Assessment in Saarlouis recently who can confirm if the day(s?) is still as described in post #391 from loulou.
And has anyone of you used sky test as a preparation, was it useful? and which tests of sky test were also in Saarlouis?

I hope there is anyone who wants to share some information:)

This thread is awfully quiet now considering things are looking to be on the up and up?

IBF Assessment Details requested
Hello everybody,

I am also invited to the IBF and I have also been following the whole thread for a little while. However information about the assessment at the IBF is pretty old on here...

Has anybody lately gone through the testing?

It would be so nice if you could share your experience with us, since I believe there are many people on here which might be invited to the IBF, too.

Thanks a lot for your help!

I have been told "the sorry", so I am not invited to the next step. My experience is nearly 4000 hours with 2800 medium jet... According to the e-mail my experience is not good enough comparing it to the rest of applicants. It's disappointing.

Good luck for those who have been invited to do the tests...

Hi SkyStar02,

feel sorry for you, but may I just confirm something, what do you mean by next step and medium jet also ?

McMax 28th Nov 2013 10:04

Hi Skystar02.

really sorry for you!

But could you give us an update about the two day assessment at IBF?
I think there are a lot of interested guy's in here...

All the best for you!

Skystar02 29th Nov 2013 10:45

Hi guys,

Sorry. I meant that Interpersonel sent me an e-mail. I could not even go to the IBF. A friend of mine went last year and told me that he spent a day (nowadays) split in two days in an assesment doing psicotechnics, interview and a little ATPL exam. That is all my friend told me. I cannot be sure at 100% is how they are doing right now.

This is the e-mail:

I new from other candidates, thats the first answer that Cargolux allways send.

We have to be patient and persistent, up-date our file, until they call us.

I knew that th company is a very to work for.

Good luck !

Aedius 3rd Dec 2013 09:52

@Skystar02: It's not a matter of qualification but rather a question of fitting the profile or not.

Currently CV is looking mainly for 747 type-rated candidates and these will be taken care of more promptly. The only exception are pilots from LG, they will have priority over any other candidates.

Of course the whole issue with Henan doesn't really help and the upcoming contract will determine, how many people will be hired and what profile they need to fit. Everything is about to change in the months to come...

China's HNCA acquires a 35% stake in Cargolux

Latest news


Cargolux (CV, Luxembourg) is set to welcome China's Henan Civil Aviation Development & Investment Co (HNCA) as its new 35% shareholder after the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg approved the USD231million deal. Among the details agreed include the establishment of Zhengzhou as Cargolux's second hub after Luxembourg with provision for a 4x weekly service between the two cities. Zhengzhou is an important IT manufacturing hub. According to Cargofacts, the agreement does not preclude the relocation of Cargolux business segments to Henan. In terms of voting rights, HNCA will be able to veto any decision proposed by Cargolux's Executive or Supervisory Board. In terms of labour and job security, the OGBL union has voiced its own concerns about possible outsourcing of jobs and operations to China, despite a government pledge that it would not happen and a similar promise in a draft commercial agreement.

Hello pilot hans,

To be honest I don't remember when I submitted my aplication. Maybe two years ago. I update it every time it needs to be so. This is the second e-mail in two years.:ugh: which I have received.

As they said to me, I have to be patient. I wonder if it really helps but there is no other option at this time.

Good luck.
