Fly2ak or OKC,

I haven't seen an update on how long it takes (if shortlisted) from initial application to a phonecall or email for interview appointment?


Are you guys planning to keep interviewing for 2009 classes?

Thanks in advance

I would suspect that the rest of the people interviewed this year will have a start date around Dec - Jan, not certain on that though. Figure it takes approxiamately 6 - 8 weeks to hear if you were successful and then another 2 - 6 weeks for class to start. For a lot of us we interviewed and then started 4 to 5 months later. Some interviewed and then started 10 weeks later. I hope that helps a bit, I know it is a bit vague.

I've got an interview date! All I can say is I'm delighted! We'll see how it goes...

Just out of sheer curiosity; I've read all kind of news about FZ planes departing fully packed . Then, what's the reason behind announcing a 40% off sale in all their routes?

My guess is that the reason for the sale is to make sure the planes stay packed .

I just heard that I have passed the interview! For me it was 6 weeks from the interview date to find out. It is by far the hardest part!!

Good luck with the interview mikehagen!

Congrats mikehagen, good luck with the interview!

Can you say how long from initial application online to receiving call/email invite to interview? Also if you are Skipper or FO?

Much appreciated,

SF

Dude, you need to chill. I know fly2AK, and I also know he is not a kiss a$$. And if you are trying to infer that okc and fly2ak are the same person, I know you are wrong there too.

You obviously have a beef with okc, and it seems flydubai for that matter. So what is the story? Why so bitter? Did you fail one of his checkrides or even an interview? It seems to me he has been very helpful on the forum regarding fz, but I do not know him. I am sincerely curious as to why you can't seem to stand him so much.

I don't quite understand your PS either. If the planes are currently full without **** on the planes now, I think it was a valid question as to why they felt the need for a sale. And what isn't touchy feely? Are you sober?

Thanks

Randy

congrats mike hagen on your interview. Any chance you can keep notes on what the interview process will be like. I recently just applied to FD as well and awaiting for an interview date. It will be good to hear from some one who has gone through the process and will have it fresh in his/her mind. Any info will be much appreciated. Best of luck with your interviews.

cheers

Right now guys are flying around 50 hrs per month and the rest of the time just been hanging out. So based on the CURRENT pay rates for an FO you will take home 35,700 dirhams. I hope that answers your question. Randy, sorry I missed you while I was in DEN . I know you are busy and my time was pretty tight while I was there as wel, but I will see you here in the sand box. Cheers.

Hi Fly2AK was wondering if its not to personal to ask how do you find it paying for your own housing with the salary that they are paying do you have enough money saved over every month?kindly advise am pondering on whether that move would be beneficial to me or not.

Hi everybody,

I know that at the first recruitment in Flydubai they were calling non Type-rated (737) pilots but I wonder if they keep doing this as of today.
Thanks in advance and good luck to all the new guys at Flydubai.
Best regards.

Primeco....The allowance can get you by but depending on your family size it may not cover everything. With the new rates it will make it a bit more difficult. The allowance of 14,000 Dhs is enough to cover a 2 bed room in a reasonable area. Every situation is different and you must evaluate for yourself what is reasonable and what is not, you can find 3 bedroom places for 150,000 Dhs per year, but remember that is rent only. You may need to buy furniture, appliances, cable and you will need to pay for electricy, internet and gas. All that extra increases your need for living expenses and will cut into your salary and right now no one other than TRE's/TRI's are flying much over 50 hrs per month. I know it is pretty lengthy and vague answer for what seemed like a simple question, but I hope it helps. I want to make sure you make the best decision you can and have honest information. You will not be able to commute, the rosters won't allow it. The rumblings out there and in here are regret for some and disappointment for others because of the rosters/schedules are not what was to be expected. We will see if they change since we are a new airline, but as of now the rosters are not good for commuting or taking a trip to explore the region. You don't work much, but you sit on standby a lot when not flying. Good luck, I hope this helps you and everyone else reading this bored.

Hi.

Have just had a missed call from a number in UAE Dubai. I can only guess it was from Fly Dubai as I applied a while back. Have tried calling the number back and rings onto a voicemail. Tried about 5 times and left a message now. Does anybody know if once they try ringing, you are then back to the bottom of the pile?
Annoyed to say the least that I missed it. Any info would be great!!

The number ended 669 if anyone else has had the same.

Regards, R75
