I know of a non-type rated pilot who passed the screening at CTC. He was called a week later for the final interview and starts class in a month. He lives in Dubai, and that might have sped things up.

That's good news! When did he go through the screening process? I have been accepted for the screening process, but for this one they want type-rated pilots.
I hope they do one for non typed soon.

He attended the screening in November. He said they started with around 11 guys and ended up with 2-3 at the end of the day. I heard CTC may lose the contract to screen pilots for FD in 2013-2014.

ZAZOO

Things are worse than ever. Its just like Flat Cap says, people lost the will to fight. What is there to fight for? They never listen anyway! Things never improve only getting worse month by month.
No point in complaining anymore, just get a new job. Thats whats going on with many in the company that I know including myself.

This is not exactly what is going on in Flydubai...
As Duckndive says some are looking for another job , some are gone already , BUT some are not at all looking for another job and even one as a minimum did not return to the previous company when call back...
So the reason why it is so quiet here now is maybe because most of the ones complaining are gone the remaining unhappy ones are in the process of leaving and the remaining mass found the package good enough to stay and stop complaining when they look around and see what else is available on the market...

Dubaigong..... it's been a while. Glad to see that you still have a knack of saying lots but hardly anything of any real substance.

So basically what you are saying is that some have left, some are leaving and some wish to stay...... I guess that's every company I have ever worked for.

FlatCap & DucknDive are probably more accurate in their account than you seem to realise.

And for those that can't be bothered I'll save you the trouble.

It's midway between Islamabad and Lahore in the North east of the country near to Kashmir.

No real terrain around and the longest runway in Pakistan, so not all bad.

Another rumour doing the rounds is to ......Sarajevo

Happy New Year everyone!!. Could someone,please, say how much the school allowance covers and wether they give you the money or do you present the payments?

Thanks!

35,000AED primary, and 55,000AED secondary. You pay and present receipts, though you may be able to work with either the school or fz to have the money before you pay out of pocket.

It is enough for some schools, but most have raised tuition beyond that point, so you are out of pocket whatever the difference. It does not cover uniforms or transport.

I am out of pocket 13,000AED for secondary (and it is the same charge for primary, so it would be a lot more out of pocket for that age group) at a decent American curriculum school. There are much cheaper options, but most of the good schools will be at or above the allowance.

Those numbers are for each year.

Hope that helps!
Randy

Thanks a lot Randy. My kids go to a british school, I hear these are cheaper. Do you know if it's true?
I have passed the screening process and now I have to book an event but I need to know the expenses before I make the move.
Thanks a lot for the help.

Yes, they are slightly cheaper just because there are more of them. However, the good ones are still at or above the allowances. Take a look at a few, or if you have friends with kids in the schools you are considering, even better. Ask them! I know Repton and Wellington are both popular British schools. There are a bunch though.

Good luck!

We didn't used to, but lately we have been flying close to that or more. I'm not sure if it will remain that way. For the last two years, it was more like 65 hours.

Once you are low vis qualified, you end up with more of the long sectors and can rack up hours that way too.

So as long as you don't fly the 80hrs you don't get the pay announced?
What percentage should I discount flying only 65hrs?
