How to book DLR Test?

Hello Guys,

I was checking the A320 Type Rated First Officers for THY and they require the candidates "to hold a valid DLR Stage 1 and DLR Stage 2 certificate that has not exceeded two years at the time of assessment".

How could I possibly do a DLR test on my own? From what I undestand, we must get inviited by the airline to be able to do the test.. Any idea?

They used to send the candidates for DLR-testing if they had below a certain amount of hours. I think 1500tt 500OT or something like that.

Thanks. I was informed by an agency that now Turkish is only considering rated pilots with 500-1000 hours on type.

Why does THY believe they can recruit pilots from the US when the US legacies are hiring significant numbers themselves? I just heard that Delta will be hiring 50 pilots per month indefinitely...

Why would any qualified US pilot want to fly for THY? Highly doubtful unless they have been turned down repeatedly by the US legacies. I suspect only DEC positions would be of interest (maybe early retirees).

From my understanding they are not directly targeting legacy carriers but the feeders and regional crews that might want to go on to bigger types or the one nearing the end of there flying carriers wanting to do something different.
delta might need 50 plus crew per month but i am sure you and any aviation professional knows scale and enormity of the US aviation scene....

i agree its not a market they can expect to get good viable returns from but it is exposure i guess they want more than anything.... half the recruiting process is awareness in any HR drive...

there was a thread in another forum here where some information regarding pay conditions, licencing and other istanbul in gerneral was mentioned

Delta is hiring 600 pilots alone this year. United and American are going to ramp up serious hiring in fall. US airways, jet Blue, Virgin, Spirit are all hiring like crazy. Many pilots wants to stay in USA as there is not better place than home. It shows Turkish may be desperate as they open their window to non type rates FAA license pilots.

Of courzzzzz.
I know for a fact that from the time you pass the selection or decide to join,it will take at least a month to get the visa and to start the work permit process then at least another 4-6 weeks to get back to istanbul to do the police interview then you can sign the contract.
