Actual roster, a/l

Hi all,
Can anyone tell me more about roster these days since new system has been implemented?
I am thinking about aplying for dec, but i need to be able to visit europe 2 times a month... Is this possible in your opinion?

Do you get 2 blocks of 4 days off? Or if not can we use our a/l days do create this possibility? Many thanks!

Anything is possible…but your situation is probably unlikely with a very low seniority. However, I have been surprised by other rosters. You might be able to bid all long night flights to free up time for 4 day blocks. But I think that is the exception rather than the rule. I think most guys are getting at least one four day block and I am hearing few getting 6 days off…consecutive. I am going to test the waters with 4 days at the end of the month and 4 days at the beginning.

I am sure others will chime in.

Are they still calling type-rated FO's for assessments? Or did they freeze the assessments?

Thanks mr carlos

Thanks for the input.

Are you a captain there?

My main worry remains the traveling, how is experience on staff traveling to europe with emirates?

Pay is good i guess... Roster still the challenging thing there?

Class date, July 20th. Assessment was in July 2013, interview was in September, 2013.

Non type rated FO, approximately 5000 total with 2800 turbo jet and 1000 turbo prop. All SIC.

Not married, no kids ( but I do have a fiancé). I plan to keep cost of living as cheap as possible, while still being comfortable. My plan is to pay off huge loan debt and try to save money for the first three years. I am coming here to work, primarily. I do not really party, but I am social and adventurous. I'll put as much effort into ensuring I am not one of those horror stories. Meaning, I intend to study my ass off and learn as much as possible while flying so that upgrade goes as smooth as possible.

I read here about the neighborhoods of Bur Dubai and Deira. Are those reasonable for someone in my situation? If the operation move to Al Maktoum International, maybe I should just resign myself to paying for Marina Area? Is there any shared housing in Dubai?

Hi guys!

I willing to apply as FO, all of the requirements are satisfied, 2100 total, 600 on type, except the ATPL licence (still frozen ATPL).

Could I have any chance to get in?

Thank you for the suggestions

Question For captains/FO's at Flydubai

Are they hiring second officers from CAE dubai? Heard they have hired 7 SO's from them. Is it true?
Can people working there shed some light on this? Any input will be very helpful.

Non rated FOs

If one exceeds all the minima except total time by 100hrs and holding both ICAO and UAE ATPL..what are the chances of being interviewed?Will obtaining a rating add chances or not make a difference without time on type?

What's the latest on interviews?both oral/written and the sim screen?

Any pointers from those that have recently interviewed please inbox me.Do they still use the compass pilapt?
Cheers

fly dubai Business class

Will the launch of the business class soon mean that Fly Dubai is metamorphosizing into a premium Low Cost Carrier?It probably will do wlll with such product differentiation..

Trackdiamond,
The old CTC website would have failed your screening based on less than required minimum total hours, so I'm guessing the new one will too. The screening for these things is usually done by robots (whether they are of the computer code or human variety).

If you have a reasonable expectation to surpass the minimum for total hours within the next few months I would say that you should state the minimum required as your total time and apply with that figure now, based on the fact that you will more than likely have it (or better) at time of interview. Good luck

There is zero reliable info about the SO program at FZ coming from within its walls. However, it exists, and there are a handful of SOs in the company now. Your best bet is to call CAE in Dubai and ask to speak to the person coordinating the program with FZ. Careful as you will most likely be talking to a SALES person with a target of selling $25k type ratings.

Question university degree

hello people,
been flying jets for a short time..actually flying my first jet. I have 1500 on crj and 5000.tt . looking at the application to be filled out for fly dubai, it seems that one has to have a university degree. I do not have that. I am your regular line pilot. is there any one with thoughts on how I can make the application even with my seemingly low education level

Hey Filipo,

I'm curious about where you found that requirement of a college degree. Was it in the application form itself? I browsed here for the company's requirements for FOs (non type rated) and couldn't find anything about a college degree being a requirement to apply...
