Assessment for instructors should be identical as for captains: psycho group test, english, simulator, board interview and full medical.
1500 hours minimum and 500 hours instruction on one of their aircraft type.
Wilingness to move to Turkey and adapt, plus 3 or 4 years commitment.
There is a limiting cap on perrcentage of foreign employee, so they need to drastically increase their training capability to cope with the number of cockpit coming their way!

Flight Instructors

Are they interviewing only in Istanbul and if yes, are they paying for travel/accommodation etc? Any written commitment expected for a subsequent FO position? Any info would be appreciated.

Good luck,
Could you ask what would be the base of operation for instructors? commitment required and bonds? roster and monthly ground and flight hours required?
Thanks

Turkish school

Hello. Can you provide any information about the assessment?
I am going soon and I would like to know if you have to do any simulator or flight. Are the ground questions related to airline or instructing?
Any information is welcome.
Regards

Instructor Interviews!
Weeks of interviews, and nobody's reporting back!
Is it as bad as I hear?
Instructor's thrown in a 737 sim with no briefing apart from the emergency exit!
Forget to tell you, you will soon be based on a disused airfield in the middle of Turkey (place is named Aydin, 120 klik east of Izmir) and expats will stay on singles as twins are for locals.
Verbal promises of a first officer position after some time!! Only if you've been a good boy, if they need FO's, and you pass selections (again) but nothing on papers!
Local's English skill is appalling for most, but they keep on failing English natives at their "test". Serious!
Interview process to flatter their ego! "We 're so good, cause so many fail!"
Salary seems unbeliveable, "if it look too good to be true, it generally is!"
On the other hand, peoples are nice and welcoming, eager to see new blood coming!
Potential is there, will they let it flourish?

Anybody hear anything else?

Hi Mac320,

Don't want to dishearten you but I've heard THY are pretty serious about English language skills. Best of luck.

Yes for expats ,in most cases, for locals not the case even those with "level6😂😂😂😂"
No changes otherwise rosters a joke big license issued as THY not EASA rising fatigue rising incident rates.
Glad to be cutting grass.
