The recruitment guys seem to be chasing this imaginary pool of type rated pilots!

WAKE UP boys its not out there!
You are missing out on some very good experienced (non type rated) people

Accept he fact that your training requirments will change/costs increase and get decent people in........Pleeeeze

Oh and make sure they speak decent eeeeengleeesh

Dear Cantilever,

If you had updated yourself with the Etihad website you would have noticed that Etihad has been taking non rated guys for the last 3 months now. Already first group expected to join in april. So i suggest you read up a bit.

Angel Flight Mag.

Hello Boys,

According to Flight Intl. Mag. they need Drivers(pilots) with any type thats above 60000 kgs so I think they are moving forward in this process.

I wish them LUCK .


Happy Ldgs

Sorry Chaps but nontype rated guys are currently being told by the bods in recruitment that they have stopped taking non type rated!!..an ex colleague 744 driver has just spoken with them!
What it says on the website and what they actually do is totally unrelated!.....

Happy Pilot perhaps you need to check up with what info is actually being put out to potential new joiners!
If it is wrong then someone in the portakabin needs to sort it out. There are an awful lot of well qualified nontyped pilots out there with the experience and background required...as I said WAKE UP!

Baby Bus is not really non type rated, it gets them half qualified pilots and results in slightly cheaper training costs...the easy option.

May be so. But if you are a "highly qualified" pilot, then I would think that there are "better" options out there... Guess it all depends on what you have at the mom, what you want for your furture, if you have family or not, if you wanna be in the sand etc etc....Pension? Upgrade? Living in a hotel until some sort of flat/house is sorted out? Nights away from your fam while they are sitting in AD?

I was/am concidering the deal so not saying that its "bad", just that there are lots of thinking to do before making up your mind...

Good luck!

Angel Trust Them!!!

Heads Up lads,

I think that if you have some faith in the guys up in the office something good will eventually come up.....

I say If EK got where it got now think what about the richest emirate of them all , it might not be a rival for EK as the money ends at the same place but Believe that the guys in the office are trying very hard.

as a matter of fact I believe that they already interviewing non rated guys I mean not even the baby bus........

Have faith
&
Keep the blue side Up

I heard that the new pilot package has been sitting for the last 2 weeks on JH desk, and this comes from RH.

Does anyone had a better info on why nothing is coming out of it? It is also a fact that only around 45 pilots out of the 190 needed this year are in the pipeline, and the company is not et sure that everbody is going to show up.

Any news on the new package are highly welcomed.

Alot of the pilots interviewed in AUH also had interviews at EK and QR, and will probably go to the highest bidder. That means they won't be going to EY

Just to update you guys that the website has been with the 60 ton limit for nearly 3 months now. They have taken quite a few non rated pilots and now they have enough. They are only taking non rated first officers now and no more DEC. Some A320 guys have been called but in limited numbers and mostly 330/340 guys. Anyway they still mainly upgrade and thus the limited number of DEC and i think this is a good thing to follow especially for the first officers in the company.

Sorry my friend, but I think you just failed their english test. Etihades is in hell, Etihad is in Abu Dhabi, and Emirates is in DXB.

Brush up with your english, I heard it's tough...

Thumbs up

well all i know is they are moving most of the variable allowance to be now the new basic salary. So now whether you fly or take leave your income is quite stable. Then there is an hourly pay and a meal allowance too. Should be pretty good. Also heard something about the housing allowance. So lets see but i am happy here anyway so anything more that comes my way is great.

Wow, that is really something to look forward to. When I did my interview last Jan the management guys informed us about this plan of improving the package and I am glad that they are indeed true to their words. I am joining EY in a couple of months, so hope to fly with you soon, guys!

Just one last question though to those EY jocks with kids in AUH. Which school are you sending your kids to? I have two kids (9 and 6 yo) and I want nothing but the best education for them. I know that registration for the next schoolyear is now ongoing. Any PMs will be much appreciated. Thanks!

New Package?

Hi,

the new package has been signed 4 days ago and still no anouncement...
What a f... is going on in this company? Another FO resigned yesterday on the Bus fleet. The company is desperatly calling guys to go and fly on days off, and cancelling sim's as short of pilots.

Maybe a little announcement would make thinks easier, first to retain the ones already here, and maybe to attract more guys. Just a hint...
