Hi all - I have been looking back many pages on here ( maybe not enough ) and can't find any indication on 320 Captain remuneration. Anybody willing to share some info on Pay ?

You won't find it online as it is considered a sensitive subject to those that pay tax in their home countries.

Some current information which may already be out there: All forthcoming recruitment of foreign contract Pilots will be directed only to the Airbus fleets.
I understand that this is because the Saudi's are bidding almost entirely when they're given the option to move from the Airbus fleets over to the 777 or the 787.


This leaves regional and shorthaul to new contract Pilots.

For the foreseeable future there will be recruitment of foreign contractors to both the A330 and the A320.


I understand that, from this Month, no new contractor will be deployed to Boeing Fleets.

Interview written and aptitude tests

Hello,


1- Regarding the hiring interview process, is the written test based on the full ATP question bank? Do I need to take an E6B calculator with me or is it based on regulation and IFR with no calculations required?
2- I have seen a web site offering a preparation to the interview (for a price), including a math test prep. Should I consider it?


I would appreciate the help, thanks.

Busy - It's not that complicated. I would just go to the interview with a pen and a calculator. You probably won't even need those.


If you really want the job then I would say the prep is worth it. The guy selling you the prep has feedback from previous interviews so it can't hurt.

I am curious about your training "atmosphere" experience.


Can you share some gold nuggets here?


Have you found some solidarity between the trainees with everyone helping each others or was it pretty much each one for itself and everyone else left behind?


Since the training seems to last a long time, it is something I would consider

Well you must be really busy cause if you go through the thread you will find the nuggets you are looking for. A short handful advise? Its more about acting than training. For further details go throygh the thread.

Thank you Alloha,
Well, yes... I've been busy perusing the last two years of this thread and although I could read that attitude is key (always is, isn't it?), I couldn't find much about solidarity between new hires.
I will assume there is a good one and if not, act like there is a good one anyway

LPJ is of no use. Anyone with decent knowledge and good aptitude should crack it with no preparation.

It would be nice to see that stopped and internal upgrades to begin again, otherwise there are going to be a number of extremely unhappy 58 year old expat FO's.

My understanding is that they are not hiring FOs at all right now for any aircraft (they never did hire expat FOs for the A320). Can someone confirm this?
