I am not sure what the published minimums are but that sounds pretty competitive.
All I see on the website is position for type rated First officers....this does tend to change periodically but other than the time on type you have the basic requirements.

Bizjet to airline

So casablanca would you recommend applying then? Even though i have not time on type on the airbus family? Would they keep my application on file or it is just a waste of time since i do not meet the requirements at the present time?

Everything is possible, so apply ! I have met flying instructors with hours on a seneca applied for fast track SO position and got the 330. You wont lose anything , apply and see what will happen.

Good luck

I think you will find that if you are not typed on one of the 3 airplanes they are hiring for; then you may not be able to submit the on line application....but it is worth a try. I think Qr and executive are more separated now than before but when I interviewed there was someone who had applied for the executive side and was interviewed for mainline.

Hi guys,

I was wondering if it's possible to write them an email to ask about our situation ? I mean something like " Hello, when can I expect to join you ? " " Am I still in the holding pool because I didn't receive any update ?? "


thank you

Re: education expenses.
For flight deck crews children under 21 are covered. The allowance is 50,000 Rial for one child, but if you have more than one it is 35000 or approx 10k in USD per each.
The child can go to school anywhere...I have one in university in the USA and it is covered.

@ HAMD......while they don't seem to have any exact formula I would say it is most likely to start on the 330 as you are current, and have relatively high experience. There has been talk of making the 320 the entry ac for everyone, but I really don't see this being feasible as there is so much training going on and that would create even more fleet transferring.
While life is considerably better on 777 followed by 330, the 320 offers the quickest route to command which is something.

@casablaanca

Thanks for the update...I really would want to stick on 330, fingers crossed.
the news was that they are starting getting deliveries of 380's by march'14...is there any movement on that front?

Just a question after reading several pages of post......its seems the hiring process is quite long and involved.I saw on their website I think they will take you 1 year out of currency.(not working)

They offered me a interview about 3 months from now which I will be close to my year.Is that not going to be a problem to get me in class before my currency expires?

You would think they would be aware of this..........is this not a problem???

......

Myself coming from Executive ,was hired F/o 320.
Expect strict Sop's and a tough Linetraining.
Once passed this ,enjoy the ride ,and so far its very nice .
Despite all this written here.Theres always 2 sides and 2 Opinions,so one gotta think outside the Box .
One is here to drive ,not to manage .once u realize that u will be fine.

Hi all. Hopefully expecting an interview sometime for captain Widebody. I'm Boeing. So will the sim assessment be on the 777 or 787? Or could it be airbus too. Thanks. Appreciate a reply from anyone Boeing guy... Or gal who has been for an interview recently..... Thanks

ADAPT

Hi,
details received regarding ADAPT and rest of the recruitment proc has no mention of the earlier tech interview by chief pilot! so does that mean no technical interview, or is just not the part of ADAPT.
anyone who has recently been through the process plz update.
