No call here from the 19 July 2010 Open House. But, she did say 10 days, I think.

Actually odlaaspa,
The office I refer to is in Dubai. The person I spoke to is the head pilot recruiter for EK. The cleaning staff are all very nice people but they do not much care for knowing about what the requirments are. Nor should they. I asked because I have several friends who do not have the 55 tons and are intrested in coming. If you do not agree, why dont you ask? I hope they drop it as a requirment again.
Good luck everyone.

Hi!

Just read of interesting EK developments with regards to US pilots...info coming from "Open Houses" in the US. They are giving a good representation of the "bad stuff", it seems, from attendee comments. EK is also saying they are in GREAT NEED OF PILOTS...admitting it right out in the open.

There is an MD-11? sim in Atlanta, I believe it was. EK told the attendees that ANYONE that meets the minimums can come and do a sim assesment. That is ALL that was said about the sim.

I THINK what that means is that if you meet the mins, and you pass the assesment, then they will give you an interview....so that guys like me (never have been on the shortlist in over two years) could do the sim, pass, and have an interview...whereas if we sit around waiting we might never get the call.

Also, I am ASSUMING that if you pass this ATL sim assesment, none is needed during your DXB interview.
IF this is the purpose of the sim assesment, it seems like a good idea to me.

Comments welcome!

Have a Nice Day!

In the last couple of classes are quite a few former US RJ pilots. So they seem to have relaxed the weight requirement.

Well if they flew the crj700 or 900 then they do meet the 30 tons requirement.
If you said they are guys that flew the crj200 in class now they must have interviewed a few months ago when the limit was at 10 tons.
The question is are they currently interviewing crj200 and erj135/145 guy?

I dont think so, at least for now

I know this will open a can of worms. But are there any DEC in the gulf area.

Qatar and I think Etihad at the moment, and Turkish which isn't Gulf, but isn't that far away.

A couple of years ago EK spent a week or so in Atlanta doing assessments on the Delta MD-11 Sim. I understand that it was because they didn't have the Sim capacity in Dubai. I have heard absolutely nothing about doing US Sim assessments since then. Art thou speaking through thy hat?

Hi,
I really don't understand with total flight times. Do they both need 4000 TT and 2500 TT on multi engine jet? With a TT 3200 hr and 2600 hour on B 737, will i meet their requirements?
Thnks..

Yes I know it is confusing, but it is 4000 TT with 2000 TT jet time OR 2500 TT in a jet over 30 tons regardless of your TT.
So you do meet the requirement.
Good luck

Open days in the UK

I have seen on ppjn there are going to be open days in the UK however the date of the information said they were starting in June. Now on the Emirates website the closest open days are in Sweden and Norway. Have I missed the Uk open days or does anyone know if there are going to be any more open days in the UK. Have done a search and can't find any trail of there being an open day in the UK.

Can anyone who has joined recently give me an indication of areas where pilots are being accomodated? Married, no kids.

I had heard it may be possible to request areas with no guarantees. The answers at interview were vaguer than a vague professor that mastered in vagueness at the university of Vague.

Almost all EK accomodations for their "newly recruited" FO's these days lie somewhere in the dunes halfway to Dhabi. And I kid u not....
Only gets better by a few miles closer to civilisation i.e Dubai,when(and IF)they select their Dec's. Not that that's going to happen again in a long long time...
Been there,done that..
Now time to smell the daffodils...

Anyone knows more about being on 'Shortlist'?
It's been like that for almost two months.

Cheers,
