Hello Gents;
did anybody applied and received any kind of confirmation or even invitation to an assessment from this supposed new air-freight company based out of CDG?
They posted a month ago searching for B777F crews.
Have a nice day:ok:

They've been operating A.332's out of Liege since March, operated by Air Belgium. Just ordered 2 new B.777F's.

The 777 won't be operated by Air Belgium. It will be a new company in France.

Will they start their own AOC? Or are they going to use the same model as with Air Belgium?

Any details on the psychometric evalutation / Theoretical knowledge / Sim profile available? Is the sim done on B777 or B737? there's not a lot to go on. TIA

mark_one 2nd Nov 2021 05:31

Nobody have any info on the sim assessment / tech quiz? Anyone from Air Belgium flying the A330F for Cma cgm want to comment?

60’ assessment on AF B777 SIM in Roissy. Tech quiz is 20 questions on B777 systems and 10 general aviation knowledge. One aircraft arrives in March and one in April. Unfortunately it’s low cost salaries comparable to French bee.

Are there rosters you would say no to?

i. e. ...
Is it 20ON / 10OFF ?
Random "Bullet" rotations? ( 4ON (ATL) / 3OFF .... 3ON (ORD/JFK) / 2OFF .... )
Tours? (18 days around the house.... CDG-IST-DXB-DEL-PVG-ANC-ORD-CDG)

Rosters ( = lifestyle) with cargo operators can massively vary from one company to the other.... (Usually lots of positioning involved, long layovers, long time away from home, etc etc...). It's not everyone's cup of tea. Roster are, more than any other type of flying, a very relevant point when you decide (or not) to join such airlines.
