How did you apply without a 777 type?? if minimum requirements are:
"A minimum of 1000 hours on multi crew, glass cockpit jet aircraft of which 500 hours should be on the B777 ""

Re: Advice

Please advice me for those working with Etihad Airlines. Am currently a graduate in Aeronautical science and still working on my commercial Pilot rating and planning to get a type rating in A320. Is it an advantage to have the type rating when applying for a job with EY. And how do I build hours to match the requirements please. Basically trying to get a job as a first officer with Etihad.

YoungHov,

To match EY requirements, you should get a flying job (banner towing, instructor....etc) that would qualify you for a regional job when they start hiring again. Then after a few years ar the regionals you might be able to get a job with one of the 320 operators in the US and start building you airbus time. THEN you will be qualified to apply with EY.

As of now, a 320 TR with 200 hours will be useless. EY wants at least 1000 hours on glass cockpit jets and 500 hours on the 320.

Keep the faith and good luck

ahhh no - its a requirement. Along with experience on type.

Don't mean to be rude young ho, but the term "learn to walk befor you can run" falls to mind.

Request for HR's email id !!

Hi,

I just applied for a Snr Sales Officer vacancy online (EY) based out of AUH. But I haven't heard anything from HR in a while (25 days and counting!!)
Can somebody be kind enough to give me a generic email ID so I can contact somebody from HR?

Many thanks.

Are Etihad actually recruiting right now? If i apply with 1900 hrs A320 and 500 hrs A330 (F/O) am i going to get 330/340 or is there a chance they will put me on the A320?
Thanks for the input.

You'll probably go to the 320 fleet, with a possible chance of doing the ccq to 330. However, many FOs are currently waiting for it.

Do you know when DECs new hires might pick up?

Hello folks! Interesting to read about the airline. Have been thinking about changing scenery to the Middle East for a while. I'm a current 777 captain with about 9000 tot time and 4000 jet PIC. With around 900 hours on type on 777, when do you think the direct entry captain hiring might pick up??

I hear that any 777 hiring will be for the R seat, dont imagine there will be a lot of DEC hiring on any fleets in the forseeable future.

Guys,

Do I have a shot at Etihad with 2200 a320 time and 600 B777 time? If so what equipment might I get?

That depends on which aircraft you are current on and applying for either Capt or F/O.

Current on the B777 and that would be for an F/O spot.

Since there is an A320 holding pool and no A320 interviews at present I'd say its normal they have not contacted you.

You'd be looking at the B777 Fleet then.

I might be wrong but I believe there is about 30 in the 320 pool.
