Hey Guys,

Does anyone know the deal for A340 Captains? Is it a perm contract or just a fill in until the local guys are ready?

The money seems ok, is Istanbul and exoensive place to live?

Licence

Hi everyone,

I am TR FO on A320. I need any info about pilot licence for Turkish Airlines. As they mentioned before an ICAO ATPL now is acceptable for recruitment process, but what is the PIC upgrade policy? Do I need obtain a Turkish ATPL (details of Turkish licence possess) or they will upgrade you with your own ICAO ATPL? Please, kindly asking anyone to share details who have such kind of information.
Thanks in advance.

One year contract and maybee a 3 year extension, after that you are permanent employed and at the button on the senority list.
After one year no more ID90 tickets. Roster changing every day. Long working hours and a lot of domestic flying with layovers. Max 4 days off in a row.
For now-no upgrade-lots are waiting. Change to widebody is strickly via senority list.
Istanbul is not cheap to live in. A non-english speaking company. On stops you are all alone and changing cockpit, cabin and aircraft on every rotation.
The worst thing is that nobody understands you, very few in OPS, cockpit cabin etc.
Just amazing.

Careful with this one guys. As is mentioned unions are stronger here. And I alway do not like it when companies try to cut the corner by hiring outsiders instead of their own, unless they do it rigth and give landed immigrant status or at least some kind of indication of long term commitment. If your a local, then theres nothing that can be said! Otherwise your just putting yourself at risk of a tough workplace with the "soft war" against the locals, and being nervous of being unemployed just when you are getting to like the place.

Besides the compensation is not even close to what would qualify for the increased pain re:above. The only ones this will serve is early retiries looking for a paid vacation.

10k for CA? give me a break. I make almost double that now. If you want to entice people and have this temp contract employment, you will have to put a premium THY. Are you listening?

Fubaliera... OK for you ... much closer to home. Though you might need a bit more time in the LHS?

Has anyone heard anything about when they will recommence recruiting non-typerated domestic F/Os and or S/Os? the rumour in mid Jan was that they would start in 2-3 months from then, wich is pretty much where we are att present if I'm not very mistaken

HR-dept won't answer any other questions other than that my CV has arrived at their pile.

Are all F/Os obliged to do the full DLR-test nowadays?

I got a reply today, even for nationals they require 1500tt and 500h on the type you are going to fly there nowadays and no more SO/FO-recruitment in the foreseeable future.
