Lightbulb Flydubai B737NG Type Qualification Program

Greetings fellow aviators, has anyone heard anything about the upcoming Flydubai B737NG Type Qualification Program in cooperation with CAE ?

https://pilot.cae.com/Careers.aspx

Will it be similar to Ryanair´s Type Qualification Program?

Sounds like you first have to do there type rating program, and if that is finished you can do the flydubai assessment. What if you fail the assessment then you have a type with no hours and much money wasted.

Back to the drawing board

From my reading of the scheme, even if you complete their type rating you're not guaranteed an assessment, those recommended by the training school may get an assessment. So you may or may not get recommended by the TRTO for an assessment that you may or may not get invited to that you may or may not pass. Too mant may or may nots really, I'm too old for it anyway.

Good luck to those that choose to apply, I've a feeling you may well need a fair bit of luck.

Minimum 52 hours in the sim, compared to the Ryanair type which is just 36. That's a minimum of 44% extra sim time.

It also takes six months, compared to 6 weeks at Ryanair. Are they offering a Masters in the Boeing 737NG?

This course ain't going to be cheap!!

Why would you go through all this before getting the opportunity to even apply for a job?

I think I'll sit this one out. I'd suggest thread carefully to anyone who thinks of going splashing out their(or someone else's for that matter) hard earned cash.

What a total disappointment! I have been looking forward to this scheme for months and this is the best they can come up with!

Out of interest does anybody know how much this type rating (and extra sim) will cost? Just for the 'chance' of an interview.

Obviously it is just aimed at people who are going to pay for a rating without the offer of a job anyway. Most people I know who have done (or would do) that, would normally go to Ryanair if possible or a cheaper TRTO like Baltic.

Also no mention of a wage during the 2nd officer program, so if that's 6 months without pay in Dubai - good luck! It's extremely expensive to live there!

A very risky and very expensive P2F program..its a very stupid program..plus no airline ticket, hotel etc. Its cheaper to pay for your typerating then goto eagle jet or one of other red light establishment.. do a 500/1000hrs in NG then approach flydubi or companies other than flydubi..

avoid all this bullcaca that CAE is offering.. this will all end in tears in a few months when someone fails after spending a gold bullion for nothing..

Any of you even seriously considering this needs your head examined, in which case you probably wont pass the psychological evaluation anyway

I know its not a great deal but at the moment there are no great deals to be had. I see no difference in this between someone who's going to self fund a type rating with no job prospects. To me if someone was going to a self funded 73 type then this give the chance of an interview for a job which you might not have before.

i know there is no information of how much etc, but its worth investigating for people wanting to self fund.

only my opinion though, don't shoot me down

I also don't see much difference between this and just self funding a type rating - something that unfortunately lots of people seem to be doing anyway.

What I don't understand is why not do the selection before starting the rating like Ryanair does?

I mean if someone turns out to be useless on the type course or line training they could just get rid of them anyway - it's not like by doing it that way the company would be exposing itself to much more risk.

That's true. I don't understand why either. The only thing I can think is unless it's due to people unable to gain the funding after success at the interview.

I know with the airline I work for now (I had to self fund) (not FR) after we got told we passed one person couldn't raise then funds and our start date was then paused till they found someone to make the numbers. Maybe cos it's only a small airline. But it seems now their trying to get rid of any risk whatsoever.

I wish it could be better.

I would have thought that it was quite obvious. Sell a load of extra type ratings to desperate/gullible wannabes.

Hi guys!

The cost is 33.000 USD and the base training is not provided...
During the check an authorized Flydubai representative will observe the trainee and may offer an interview with them. Take your risks
