Where did you get this information from? are they only your own speculations?

I know for a fact that there has been recruitment initiated after that the form has been removed through agencies, contacts within the company, people lucky when shown up at the office in person etc.

The sayings of the rumours have wandered gradually from April/May up to late autumn.

For us zero to hero pilots moneys not important for the first couple of years! We need the experience first! Money for some of us is the least of the worry!

C'me on dude.. THY is one of the best employers at the moment. A friend of me is a cadet at the flight academy, and is going to earn approx €4,000 a month. After his flight training he only has a debt of €85,000. BUT he has a guaranteed job!

I think there are somewhere between 25-30 aircrafts still to be delivered. Are they so overcrewed that they can afford losing alot of people?

I find it really disappointing. I came here for a better work environment, and found that to be the case. However, the Lira is devaluing so much, the balance is now tipped to the other side. I just can't work for such low salary compared to what the market is paying now.

It's a shame. I can't see THY doing anything about it though. The Turkish pilots would never allow us to be paid more than them. If the contracts were originally in US Dollars or Euros, then the exchange rate would have effectively given us more than them, but that is due to currency fluctuation where we have to convert our money for bills/investments etc. Now the exchange rate is crap, we have no chance, as now it would just be viewed as a pay rise for non Turkish pilots. The horse has already bolted.

THY are about to lose a large portion of their pilots IMHO.

The moral of the Pilots on all Types is going down as the situation within the operation changed quickly. Some A340 Expats did not get the contract renwed, some B777 Captains got a notifcation that they will be terminated due to age now 63 and not 65. Other Guy´s having now Visa issues and are out of order (and pay).

The A320 / B737 guy´s hardly get home on a regular base and the ID90 deal is over after one year, so the gate is open and with the drive of the devaluation of the TRY against the USD,EUR, STG or other mayor currencies the flush is accelerating people out.

Yes there are more Aiplanes on order and yes there are more Pilots to be qualified to turn the Metal around but the organisation and the cooperation internally and externally is not in a row and that is cost incentive and needs to be straightend soon if not even a legacy carrier can face problems that hurts him seriously.

Administration is a obstacle for itself, you get nothing done in a short time and time is not money for them, yet !!! It is something that is not in the deep consideration of all involved.

Is the Turkish DGCA a JAR member ? How come they still demand validations for the Expats, how come they still demand medicals from Turkish AME´s?

There are alot of other obstacles you face, daily. Roster? Something what changes like the bid on the stock market, you can get call´s a few times per day for the next day and you dont know where you ending up flying to exactly until you sit in your plane. Publishing is two or three days before and of the Calender Month, theoretically, don´t bother what it states, it will change anyhow, so stop making plans.

Good things: Sure there are really good things, the food on the plane is outstanding, carefull you can gain weight weekly. The climate amongst the crews is nice, good fellows to fly with, relaxed and layed back. If there is a problem it will be solved with the statement: No problem, we fix it somehow. One helps the other.

The only problem: The real problems are not taken care of, that´s a problem.

Fly safe and land happy

Can you fill us in on the contract change. Is it not 1 year probation followed by a 3 year contract?
