Damn pilots,they should have known better..
THY A332 at Istanbul on Dec 29th 2013, rejected takeoff
And yet again..
THY A321 near Sofia on Jun 3rd 2015, smoke detector indication
Unbelievable these pilots.

Other than that,a few serious incidents which require obvious detailed emphasis on training issues and possibly CRM.

Beware of joining Turkish, I have a friend there whom says on 75% of flights the PIC CRM is poor and that on PF sectors PIC are questioning everything that is being done and not letting him fly the way he feels comfortable with.

Clear CRM issues from local captains and making FO feel useless and hopeless

After several months of this he finally just left one day with no job to go to.

Nothing wrong with my buddy confident operator and very friendly guy to get along with.

Just as a warning for potential FO joiners.

I have a friend who didn't do too well at Turkish. Now he goes around saying 75% of flights the PIC CRM is poor and that on PF sectors PIC are questioning everything that is being done and not letting him fly the way he feels comfortable with.

He says that there is a clear CRM issue from local captains and making FO feel useless and hopeless.

After several months of this he was finally let go with no job to go to.

He's friendly guy to get along with.

But he goes around warning potential FO joiners not to join saying this is what happened to a buddy of his....I think that's too much

Hi guys,
In FAQ section of THY website , among required documents for screening it says a reference letter on prev. Employer letterhead ..
Guys who have gone through the screening , could you pls specify whats kind of letter is that? What should be mentioned on that letter?
and is it strictly required for screening?
I dont mind any PMs...
Thanks guys..

You may freely comment on the following:

If you want to involved and benefit from the new Collective Work Agreement , you have to become a member of the union. If you’re not member

Former...a real shame it could be a good job but they manage to make it unsustainable..some did not last more than few months. Horrible rosters ( fly sleep fly sleep in particular 737 PIC absolutely unsurvivable) politics a peculiar working environment and no commuting turns it on one of the worse. Only acceptable 777/330 PIC for those escaping the heat and living in EU. English a requirement on paper..like many others ..just box ticking. Many doubted..and found out for themselves. I hear no sign of improvements.

Well..if you are Turkish you are on the wrong forum even more if you are perspective cadet. As far as I remember they hold your balls for 11 years in which you will pay back ..so not really free of charge...I would still think twice..in a few year's you might regret..this profession is vastly finished. Nevertheless sure you will substantially raise the average level..starting with English language skills.

Grrr

Also don't get me wrong I've been and still am trying to be nice but this statement was a little "too low-terrain!"
Thats right....I think cucuotto is being too negative and too pessimistic and is also trying to change everybody's mind against THY.....

Well there you go.
Ignore the Cockatoo's constant squawk, go and listen to the Turkeys gobble and if it doesn't ruffle your feathers, fly with it.

I think there is no need for cucuotto to change anybody 's mind. Speak with any expat and you'll see he is not even the more pessimist or negative. The company posted a massive loss in first quarter if the trend does not change ( and seen the geopolitical situation I cannot see how it could) I think we will be discussing of something else in the mid term future..

What seat? Left..unsurvivable 95/102 hours..lot of night turns to Iraq Iran Gulf..loads of domestic 4 sectors some EU no layovers 8 days off.. flying with no time for other than sleeping eating..sometimes not even that, minimum rest in and out of base, split duty, hours long transfer to SAW and back..need to be pretty desperate..not many lasting. Right seat same with less hours..blanks filled with home stby or reserve. Commuting virtually impossible.

THY, a non European outfit

THY is a replica of the Turkish government
THY does not recruit Kurdish citizens for their vacancies.
THY pays in devaluated, unstable Turkish Liras, and wouldn't compensate any currency loss.
THY and its management is sensitive and prejudiced about foreigners comments into their political system
THY president and CEO is a puppeteer of the Turkish government, they brag about obeying Islamic law, but there is nothing more hypocritical than that on any Turkish citizen, watch RT television about Turkish dealings with ISIS in Syria, they are contaminated, as their wicked spirit.
THY has surpassed 300 aircraft, they brag about a new airport and English level 5 for recruitment; You will be surprised to find a crippled management who cannot reach English level 2.
Check PPRuNe on comments about former pilots who present work and worked for that outfit, make sure you do not out this airline in your resume, apathy and dismay, the traits of a wicked society under siege by a regimental system that supresses the freedom of speech.

Incidentally THY pay scales stink, compare with professional outfits in the Middle East, India or China, they double your salary and benefits, and provide a more pleasant lifestyle.
