Any of you guys have to do a technical exam? JAA/FAA - Met/Theory of flight/Nav/ATPL questions?

Appreciate the info.

Air Arabia careers or Parc Aviation?

Hi guys!
Anyone can tell me which is the best way to apply for Air Arabia?
Is it through Parc Aviation or by their Official site?
I've filled the application online (AA site) in early January and I heard nothing from them so far...

Thanks!

Can anyone from within air Arabia tell me how easy or how difficult it is to collect a number of days Off in order to be able to go home very now and then?

In Fly Dubai for example, I know that pilots can easily do roster changes through AIMS, getting rid of some flights and collecting several consecutive days Off this way? Does such a system exist in AA?

Thanks

5 days-off

The quality of roster is definitely improving but there is still a room for improvement. We normally get 5 consecutive days-off every month (a couple of months not possible due to crew shortage or peak leave period) which allows us to commute. In general, the rostering staff are really very accommodating and they help crew most of the times.

Thanks smart123

Thanks for the answer smart123!
Do you have any idea of what is happening with the recruitment? Cause I've sent my application online 2 months ago and got no answer at all, and recently I've found on Parc Aviantion an offer for Air Arabia A320 FO's for both Sharjah and Alexandria.
Thanks for the help!

ABY recruting

ABY is only recruting TEMP F/Os as they have many MPL in the pipeline, the only few CPL going through the interview are among the last CPL and only for close reletaves of ABY Captains (Captains kids) or ABY employees who got their CPL

both Egypt and Maroc base will be recruting full time Pilots.

days off

LNAV VNAV
we have a system like AIMS called CESAR, you can drop and swop your flights, most of them are day trips so it is not difficut to change, plus the 5 days off but not sure if it will work for long commuting

Thanks for the replies. I wouldn't need or expect long commuting. What I would need is to be able to gather 4-5 days off, once or preferably twice a month and from what I hear this is possible.

I didn't understand from the post above, is Arabia recruiting direct entry captains now for sharja? I know you can apply online but are captains actually recruited?

Hi guys,

I'm still looking for people working for Air Arabia Maroc based in Casablanca.
Would like to know the type of roster for F/O , average flying hours per month ?
Good relationship with captains and management ?
Is it hard to get the local licence?
And how is life in Casablanca?

Cheers

Have you been selected as SO and already have a CPL/IR which is not from the Alpha Accademy?

Thanks
