Untouched PBS

If AIMS was really left to run PBS the results would have been instant, but it's funny to see just how much extra time they need to manipulate it after! Anything on your roster without the R has been changed by scheduling!

Jerman,

With those qualifications on the Airbus, why not instead focus your attention on EK, Qatar and the other big UAE operator? As far as I can tell, they are interviewing people meeting minimum Airbus qualifications...

Good luck!

Do FD pilots have to carry their own manuals and charts or are these provided with in the aircraft (Aircraft sets)?

Just trying to figure out if there's a need for a flight case.
Thx.

Everything is onboard. You can carry your own iPad with the Lido app's and Docunet app that gives you all you need. However not for official use yet. We're waiting for Class II EFB (iPad's) installation. I believe several company iPad's are already out in the crewroom to have a look at.

Each aircraft has a set of paper charts both airfield and enroute although plans are afoot to have these replaced by the iPad. The manuals are currently on the Boeing laptop but these also maybe incorporated into the iPad too.
All pilots carry a flight bag of some description carrying licenses, headsets, personal tablets, pics of the wife and kids etc

New Uniform...

Well I am thrilled to be the first to reveal the much rumoured new flightdeck uniform, apparently designed with the comedy rostering as its inspiration.

Maybe a stupid question, BUT, is the proper way to apply to flyDubai via the flyDubai website? And filling out that somewhat strange and funny looking "application", that results in a "profile"? Just making sure..

High Energy and Amdram, thanks for the info on the charts/manuals and bags.

Does the 737 have plenty room on the outer side of your seat to accommodate your bag? Not too familiar with the cockpit on the 73.

No problem. The 737 is cramped, to put it mildly. In my case if I slide the seat all the way backwards, and thus it moves sideways too, it squashes my bag and prevents the seat from sliding backwards fully. Thus getting out of the seat is a pain. There is no space behind the seat.

FlatCap,
Spot on!
Vortac,
Out of curiosity have you been offered a job? If the answer is not yet then as a suggestion try to get through the screening and the type rating, and when that is done, start worrying about the trivial issues. Good luck!

Thanks High Energy.

Pole Shift, yes I have been offered a class date and will be joining in a few months. I asked because if I won't be needing my flight case, I will not haul it with me across the planet. Consolidating stuff around here and putting stuff in Storage Unit as I type, before we head down to my inlaws for a few months before we move to DBX.

I do appreciate the suggestion tho

Garbage in garbage out

No roster as AIMS can't function apparently with the added manipulation by HP creating a conflict between PBS and the normal crappy roster. What happened with the promise of it being a pure PBS result?

Mave, duly noted, I can't even blame that one on autocorrect...

Ron Jon? Not a fan, sorry.
