Hi all,

Saw some pilots doing interviews a few days ago:

English exam 45 questions but time limiting
Tech FCOM1 50 questions but tough
Group was a tunnel building excerise looking for team work
Interview relaxed mainly procedural, CRM questions and memory items
Sim visual followed by go around followed by engine failure then raw data ILS approach without any automation.
Medical

You are told everyday if you continue or not. Nice friendly atmosphere.

Hope this helps

Of course it is a nice friendly atmosphere, they want you to join them as they are desperate for pilots. 330s now flying many 320 routes.
It amazes me how many still apply to Etihad and other ME companies after reading what is in these forums. There is a lot of truth said here but it is very similar throughout the world as I understand it.
The one thing you must remember is if you join as a FO you will be at least 6 years before you are upgraded and that is a long time to be in the Middle East! It is hot, dusty and very unpleasant at times but there are respites between flights when you have fun. Remember also that the UAE is one of the more easy going countries in the region as far as what you do; clothing and drinking for example; Dubai more than Abu Dhabi.

DEC for 320

Well the rumors about the company only hiring 320 first officers has been squashed. A friend of mine told me that his friends are being interviewed for a DEC straight to the 320!

Any one else know of any one being hired directly to the left seat?

I think you'll find there are normal DEC as well (non TRI and TRE's) coming in and being interviewd as we speak.
Well done EY you managed to take the incompetence to another level, now they have no choice as more CPT have resigned with additional one to follow and furthermore no more link on the EY career page for 320 FO, only showing 330/340 and 777 which negates all the other previous discussion where all recruitment from now on will be on the 320 only.
I guess another "possible" kick in the guts for the 320 FO, get ready for another wave of walkouts and more flight cancellation

One of my batch mates friends who is an A320 captain was invited to an interview at the begining of this month and passed the interview but was told he would only go into a holding pool as EY are not taking any DECs on any fleet. It seems the only DECs were the 10 TREs that was communicated to us. In the interview he was told that he would be put into a holding pool which lasts one year after which the pool expires.
Also the A320 first officer position is on the EY website along with A330/340 and B777 but only first officer positions.

The interview is fully taken care of by EY when i came and so was the case when this DEC came, he was told that there are no confirmed joining dates but elected to join the pool if possible. Again he has nothing to lose by coming, the ticket, transport and hotel are taken care of by EY.

Not sure what he meant either.

Your tickets, transport upon arrival, hotel and transport during the whole interview is paid for by EY. No breakfast is included but you get food during the whole day of the interview and the hotel we stayed at even gave us an EY discount.

I check with my mates friend and he had the same only last week.

They pay your hotel and you get 100 dirhams per day as meal allowance (must be spent in the hotel restaurant).

B777 rosters

Can someone shed some light on B777 rosters at Etihad. Can't find anything significant on this thread.

Layovers, turnarounds etc.

Thanks

trent1974,

777 has mostly layovers with a few turn arounds (JED, RUH, and sometimes KHI,LHE)
Layovers are in BKK, MNL, CGK, YYZ and MAN.
All are at least 24 hours except some of the MAN that are only 16 hours.
YYZ is either 2 or 3 days.
Turn arounds, BKK and MAN are operated by 2 pilots.
Otherwise CGK and MNL are augmented (3 pilots) and YYZ 4 pilots.
Days off vary. Sometimes 8, sometimes more . Personally I average 12 a month.
Hours also vary from low 60s to mid 90s. Overtime is possible.

Good luck..

Hi,

@Laker

What do you mean for faster upgrades in Ek? How much time can you expect in ek or ey before being given the chance to upgrade?

Can someone post something such as NTM did for the 320?

Thanks a lot!

New career progression at EY

So now we at least have a more clearly defined career progression and the reasons why. (According to GL anyway)

Glad to see they still trying to avoid DEC, (only TRI on A320), and will be upgrading on the A320 as required.

18 upgrades by the end of the year. Better get into the books, boys and girls.

Fleet transfers Airbus to Boeing next year. Sounds good.

Heading in the right direction. (Now if only they would sort out housing.....)

@sir Oasis. Did you read anything official in regards to this new plan? what reasons are you talking about?
It certainly is good news but I just didnt hear anything else than rumours about this new progression plan.
