Guys/girls,

there's dozens of pages on this very thread on the interview process.

Dont be lazy, if you want the job take the time like myself and many other candidates have and go through them all. The process hasn't changed, the books recommended to get haven't changed.

The answers to every qu you might have is in this very thread, take the time and search it out yourself.

These guys can't be THAT desperate if they have a 30T limitation, which excludes many RJ guys.

I'm also interested in the Cholesterol and EK question on the previous page. Mine is about 220, but steady at about 135 with medication. I'm otherwise fit and healthy.

Anybody know if there are cholesterol limits for disqualification?

Hi!

There is NO PUBLISHED weight limitation. At the LAS job fair, they told me the weight limit was reduced to 10 tonnes, and, subsequently, there was not limit, and there is no limit on the website. They DO have unpublished age limits, so they may have other unpublished limitations.

Hello,

I am thinking of now applying to Emirates but I have a question? How does it work to get into the USA for pilots? I was arrested for under-age drinking there a long time ago and wonder if I would be stopped entering the US as a pilot for Emirates?

Is it just a five year background check that is required or do they do there own research?

Thanks you in advance for you help.

I'm impressed how many... well not so many at the end but still quite a few are taking the bait...can you read ?
If you have a job and you are not about to jump from bridge.. stay where you are. In few years ( may be months) you will either thank me or just regret you did not listen.

Hi!

Officially, no problem with RJ time, as you can see at the website. If you read all the threads on EK, however, you will find that in real life the situations are HIGHLY varied, and I don't think anyone can tell you what will happen to your appliction. If you want to be considered, complete it. Once it is done and in the system, it is easy to update it whenever you want.

no way jose

"You really don't need to prepare for this interview.

If you are a competent pilot you will get the job based on the sim assessment........ unless you are socially retarded"

WRONG !
Sorry mate, but you are dead wrong.
I've seen many real good guys go over there, pass the sim with flying colours and still no job offer at the end. None of those fellas were socially retarded, very much the opposite.

I think the process after the simulator weeds out good pilots from good pilots who interview well.

Have a chat with some of the guys who work in Recruitment and see what they have to say. I think you will be quite surprised.

Which pages?

Just on the off chance, before i start sifting through all 110 pages of this thread does anyone know which pages actually contain the information about the Emirates selection?

Amazing. . .

Read this thread 4 years ago when considering EK.

It was already too long then, and such a chore to go through!

+100 pages now. . . . .

Please tell your interviewer that you have read each and every page on this thread when you get to dubai.

You shall surely be a successful candidate.

I read the max age was about 48-53, depending on your experince level. There is no PUBLISHED age limit.
On the other side of this coin, just wondering if there is a lower age limit? I know it doesn't mention anything about this on their website but in reality would it be an issue?

24 yrs old, meet the min requirements (just about!). Is there a danger of being viewed as perhaps a bit on the young side or would it be a positive?
