Age limit

The age limit for transfer to widebody in THY is 55 years, so this is why they cannot accept expats above 55, when the locals cannot transfer .

Because THY is looking for experienced professionals already highly qualified on the aircraft. Not someone they can train and promote.

Cant they overlook this restriction?

I heard that they were to recruit during April but I haven't heard anything. Rumors says that they had another batch of guys sent to DLR in Hamburg recently.

THY

There will be no recruitment for the time being on B737,A320 ! But they are looking at getting some 777,A330/340 pilots .The reason being that they are only allowed 10% expat pilot out of the total pilot force by the turkish CAA , so they would rather get 777/330 pilots .Things may change and they do so quite often .

So there isn't any recruitment for the time being?
I don't see any information on their website.
Is there usually an online application for B737/A320 FO's?

Thank you,
Dan

Yes Daniel, but the application form is taken down for some reason. I'm still waiting as well for an opportunity to apply.

If THY is in need of pilots they will write it at their website. If they aren't searching for pilots, they won't ask for applications. Simple.

How comes they have been recruiting extensively during the time that the form has been removed from the site then?

If the application is available at the site there are people who will apply, right? After a while they will have a look at the applications and if there are enough applications to fullfil the job openings they will close the application (in the most cases there are date openings -> closings). After the application is closed they will take contact with the appliers and make a date to test them. This takes (a lot of) time. The selections for the pilots isn't done in 2 days because they have to be judged and conclude the candidate is ok or not. This sub-processes take a lot of time and that is the reason why there are candidates which are hired a month of 2 - 4 after closing the application.
