Any updates on when those second officers in the holding pool will be called to start line training?

Air Arabia Medical

Hello Everybody!

Could you please enlighten me about the class 1 medical for AA? Do they have their own specific requirements in order to be eligible for work at the company? Do I have to undergo the medical tests at AA's clinic or with a specific AME? Or is it just the same as any UAE GCAA class 1 medical with any approved AME?

Your input in this regard is highly valued.

Safe landings!

Come on guys! No more people around here are working for AA or what?!

That was only a little inquiry, wasn't it?

100 hours a month = no time for PPRuNe.

If I'm writing on PPRuNe it's only because I've reached my 900hrs/year
Cargo? Never heard. But if anything is worth doing, I'm sure AA will think about it.
We have our "own" clinic in Sharjah Airport. It's a standard UAE GCAA class 1 medical, straigh forward. There is only one exam (that I don't remember) that you can do in any hospital.
Every month we have new second officers MPL coming from Alpha Aviation, it's not an easy jump from cessna to Airbus, but they work and study hard.

Hi bettigio,
I'm from Italy and I'm thinking about joining alpha aviation.
I would like to ask you if you know anything about orders for new planes? Is air arabia looking to put an order for new a320s? I read on an article that Adel Ali, CEO of Air Arabia, is contemplating the a320neo, 737max and the Cseries.
Do you guys know anything about a new order?

Reduced FO terms...

bettigio, could you please post or PM the current direct entry FO salary please.

My experience is 3000 TT and 2750 A320 family

With the salary is life comfortable, able to afford car, housing and schooling for children etc?

Would appreciate your comments.

Thanks CP.

I really don't know about new airplane order.
So far we received almost half of the 44 new airbus. In 2013 they will come with the new sharklets. Last delivery should be completed in 2016.
Airbus A320Neo, B737Max they will be around in 2016 as well. Still too early to make predictions, plus Sharjah airport is too small for all this aircraft.
Rumours says they will build a new terminal especially for Air Arabia, like Easyjet is doing in Europe.

Dear all Air Arabia employees, or some one who has some info:

What's the latest over there?
Any new hires?
How many FOs do they expect to hire per year?

What is the time for upgrade?

Thank you all very much!

Receiving some useful answers for the queries in here is getting more difficult!
Unexpectedly, this is sending a sort of subtle messages to the chaps who are following up! It's raising more questions and getting rather worrying!

Good luck busy AA guys and happy new year!

Just heard today ABY will only hire new F/O's from "their" flightschool hence no more experienced rated pilots. Can anyone in ABY confirm/deny that?
