@Paper Lad

The fact that you received that promotional email does not necessarily mean that they received your application. You must have subscribed to their newsletter using the same email.

Cheers,

Thumbs up Flydubai open for business and more recruits

Hi Just browsing whilst i'm at work and around 1hour ago (3pm GMT) the flyduabi website opened for business... take a look... it has some nice touches and i think the pilots recruitment part is also open for applications.

OKC,

Just some questions when you have a minute, but please don't let your tea get cold over it

1. Will the pilots use EFBs or will it still be a paper airline with pilots carrying around flight cases? I ask as it appears the company is requiring pilots to have a laptop, but will not provide one.

2. A few weeks ago there was a news article that said flydubai's launch cities would all be in India. Now it appears they are BEY and Amman. Why the change, or was it all smoke and mirrors with the press?

3. Any idea how monthly schedules will be given out? Bid by seniority or just assigned?

Thanks for what info you can provide!

LG

Hi,
Is there anybody from flydubai who would be fine with catching up in town as I have few questions I'd like to ask?

Thanks for the help.

They are currently interviewing for more FOs. 1st class of FOs starts on May 31, those are the pilots that interviewed back in January.

Where are they interviewing? CAE or EKHQ?
I was expecting that some people would at least be fine to meet during a short coffee break even if they're very busy... few month ago I visited CAE to inquire about a 737NG type rating and was told that flydubai's FO recruitment was already over...

I don't know why the CAE people would say anything like that. Portions of the interview take place at both facilities. With all the airplanes coming between now and 2015 I doubt that recruitment will ever be over....

I also couldn't understand why I was given such an information. Beside that I couldn't proceed for a type rating as CAE never came back to me despite my follow up and update requests... funny how they can ignore a $25,000 client. I didn't insist much as such enthousiam is not very appealing.

Apparently they had interviews last week and were only looking for 737NG rated people. Next batch should be more open and will probably use the online applications filed since the beginning of this month.

Not true. I know of at least 2 people in that group last week that had no NG experience.

Maybe the CEO is not aware of that as it is not what he was saying yesterday morning.

They are interviewing more FOs this week. I've heard that the interview part is till the same, except now the medical portion is no longer at the EKHQ. You have to go to a medical facility for the GCAA exam and it makes for a long afternoon.

Launch cities are BEY and AMM. May 31 class of FOs is full, June class starts a couple of weeks later. Not much else to report.....

Just talked with a friend who interviewed several weeks back, no word yet on yes or no. I suspect that my friend got the job, but with all the start up stuff going on right now, sending out emails to people that won't be in class for a few months is a lower priority. It took them about 8 weeks to get the word out to my group, so be patient
