You must be crazy even thinking to join this kind of company.

If the order is confirmed, it can start earlier.

Does anyone know if they are actually hiring foreign pilots at THY? Cause it seems like they are always asking for Turkish citizens. Any insiders?

Seems that no option for foreign pilots will open soon. Even if you get in, expat life and way they are treated is not something someone would want

Sorry to say but except maybe good cockpit atmosphere (Also not always guaranteed) everything is against the expats.

assuming you may be an insider, what exactly do expats face? Because unfortunately some of us are pretty desperate just to get the hours and go somewhere better.

as an expat you will be treated a bit better than the turkish guys, especially regarding rostering (5 block off-days, in total and average you will have more than 8 days off per month which is not the case for turkish pilots)

the conditions depend highly on the fleet you will join. you'll find the best conditions of course in the wide body fleets (B777/787 and A350), followed by A330, thereafter A320 and last & least B737 (a lot of legs and considerably less total salary plus bad destinations plus a lot of AJET flights)

yes, the lira is a pain but TK is increasing the salary on a regular basis (every 6 months).

In the last years (except during the pandemic days) in average (including all extra payments like bonuses, profit share etc)
- a F/O earns 5500 € net (narrow body) / 7000 € net (wide body) approximately
- a CPT 8500 € net (narrow) / 10500 € net (wide body and instructors)

these average payments didn't change much or even decreased a little bit in the last years

Again bunch of bull***, average FO pay was less than €4500 /5500, NB captains were below €7000 until recently. By that time the cost of living went 3x up as inflation soared.

atmosphere is friendly, salary is not bad, you'll be fine against the inflation, the location is close to europe and there are more than 1 flight to most destinations. moreover istanbul is a huge city with lots of opportunities for social life. If you are looking to build hours, I recommend. B737 fleet has too many sectors unfortunately. We are expecting it will be better for good in 1.5 years when AJET operations are over. Also you'll have widebody upgrade opportunity even if you start at Narrow Body
