Old king coal is a merry old soul
now hes flown his new 73
he typed and he typed
to create a good light
in front of the fiddlers three.


Just go get the plane
cos your being a pain
said the pestered fiddlers three.
so old king coal is a merry old soul
and dreams of his new 73.

Course dates

OKC

You sound like a man in the know! I am thrilled and delighted to have completed the 'pre entry requirements' for an FO position, with an offer to be sent when course dates have been scheduled.

Who (if anyone!) can I speak to to try and find out a ball park start date as I urgently need to make arrangements in order to be able to leave my current job.

Regards,

Ali...Depending on how much notice you told them you needed prior to joining will dictate the minimum time they will give you to get ready. They actually gave me nearly 2 months to get ready and I told them I needed 3 weeks. Another friend of mine told them 2 weeks and he got 3 weeks to get ready. You will get an email with the course date offer, prior to a fed ex copy of the offer. As far as someone out in Dubai to talk to ahead of time I would recommend talking to the contacts in HR you already met and see if they could give you an idea of a course date. I hope this helps. Good luck

Thanks for the response fly2AK. I was having some difficulty getting hold of my contact in HR, but that's been resolved now. They're pretty busy I guess!

Hello Box,

They are very busy right now with flights leaving and new destinations also starting up has kept everyone busy. I was told they still have plans to hire this year. Good luck to you all.

FO Package?

Hello Lads & Gents.

Could anyone share what the latest FlyDubai package is regarding the right seat?

In the early days of the FD website both packages were published but not any more...

Many Thanks!

Mikehagen,

The short is 43,000 for an FO and 57,000 for Capt. That includes your housing, transportation, flight pay and salary. Flight pay could be more or less depending on how much or how little you fly. That of course is in AED Dirhams, you can convert that to your local currency to see your equivalent dollars. Hope that helps.

Fly

I was sent the following by my friends & colleagues who are there already:

Salary 25,480 AED per month.
Housing Allowance 16,000 AED per month with which you have to find your own place to live.
Transport Allowance 4,000 AED per month.
Flight pay 150 AED per block hour.

Life insurance 2 years basic salary.
Accident insurance 2 years basic salary.
Loss of license insurance 2 years basic salary up to 62 years of age, then 1 year basic salary up to 63 years of age, after which no cover.

Health care package provided for self, spouse and up to three children.

Education allowance for up to 3 children, which can be claimed to help pay fees at schools outside of UAE. Primary school 30,000 AED per child per year. Secondary school 45,000 AED per child per year.

Annual leave 42 days. One confirmed seat return ticket per year, for self, wife and upto 3 children, from Dubai to the airport nearest your nominated home, nearest that is to an airport that's served by Emirates.

One off moving allowance was 3,500 AED.

There is no pension plan or company contribution.

Don't know how the FO package looks.

If you work 50 block hours per month, for 10 months of the year, with no kids in tow, the package would amount to approx 620,000 AED per year, from which you have to fund all your accommodation and transport and if you have kids the education allowance will not cover all of the school fees for most schools that you'd be prepared to send your children to.

In the last three months the Dirham has slipped 21% against the UK Pound and also slipped 6% against the Euro. My ex-colleagues there also suggested that the whole package is rumoured to have been reduced by 10% on the figures quoted above, plus that the Interline agreement with Emirates is to be chopped which means getting back to home could become expensive and problematic?!

I was thinking of applying but with a worsening exchange rate plus a possible cuts in the T&C's, living in sandpit Dubai is not an attractive prospect.
