Well there is some thing FDB is good at , and that is crew turnover, actual we are right up there in the top, when it comes to pilots and cabin crew leaving the company.

13 % of the pilot corps has left Flydubai from day one. That's 47 pilots during a world recession...Well done , keep up the good work, can´t wait to see the numbers when the economy is back on track

Easyjet had back in 2006 when everything was booming a turnover at 10 %...

Applied last week (near 3k hours on type).

Received the rejection email yesterday. I am not shortlisted for any interview with them.

I wonder if they have a common system with EK and they saw there that I was already in the successful applicants pool for Emirates.

Otherwise I can't understand that I am suitable for a EK position and not for a FD one.

Well, will have to look for another "B plan".

Upcoming Interview

I do have an interview coming up with flydubai. I know there has been lots of information posted in the past regarding the interview with CTC. But does anyone have any updated information within the last few months?

Thanks in advance.

Things that make a company bad

The real questions people should be asking (and maybe someone can confirm the accuracy of) is the pilot attrition rate - I heard 20%
When looking at a potential company you should also ask what kind of punitive culture do they have? Rostering culture? Are they bound by the contracts or change things to suit themselves? Honesty? Openness? Safety? Discretion being expected rather than optional?

Has FlyDubai changed their hours requirements for FO applications? I am sure it was 1500 hours total but now I've just been on the website and it says 2500 hours.
Strange....the NearMiss with Air Arabia last week the F/O had 470 total time.
Is it true FlyDubai is getting B777?

B737 type rated first officers
  • B737-300 to 900 (NG/EFIS) endorsed within the last 24 months.
  • At least 1,500 hours total flying time.
  • At least 500 hours on B737-300 to 900 (NG/EFIS) type aircraft.
Non-B737 type rated first officers

First Officers – must have 2,500 hours total flying time, of which 1,000 hours must have been gained on modern (EFIS) multi-crew, multi-engine aircraft over 10 tonnes operating weight (preference will be given to those with PIC time).

Bit of thread drift but we were all a bit surprised to be clearing you guys in 123 to Alepo today, there can't be many riskier place to fly into at the moment. Do you get extra danger money for flying into active war zones?

Tower Ranger, technically Syria is not a war zone and neither is Afghanistan. That is of course, according to our safety dept.

Just lots of naughty boys pointing guns at one another and not meaning actually hit anything. Duck and dive ladies!

On the bright side!

Flydubai is a wonderful establishment, this is of course if you have a highly evolved sense of humour, a penchant for cynicism and a liking for horseshit.

Fortunately, I have all three. However, the dung from my well bred steeds I think smells a little sweeter.
