I had an interesting conversation with a newish joined ex crj driver last night at longs bar. Seems he just worked out that he will become eligible for a command at the same time as those Cadets that graduated 18months before he did. His no time on aircraft above 55t means that his only advantage is that he will get to 6000hrs before the cadet that joined the same day as he did.
It didn't appear he did much research before joining EK. This kind of info should not come as a surprise after joining.
The recruitment team will explain the command criteria and answer your questions if you ask them.

Then you can give him the good news(insert sarcasm here), it's only 4000hrs above 55T required not 6000, or roughly 5-6 years.

Also when you have passed all this you can look forward to flying with White Knight. I would love to be a fly in the cockpit

I would take yoyonow's advice and leave family at home until checked out on the line.

I did that when I joined SQ (A340) as a DEC from GF(B767) You do not need family distractions IMHO.

Smile FO age limit

WK and Don,

Sorry I may be misunderstanding the OM-A but in Section 5, Page 6 under Co-Pilot Qualifications 5.2.2 and 5.2.3 it states: "Aged 53 or younger on joining, with experience commensurate with age". I believe "Sippy" stated he was 51, just wondering where you get age 48 from? I've searched the FOIP and EK Careers website and there is no mention of age? Do you have a reference for the age 48 rule?

Cheers

Eligibility for re-application

does any one know how long after your interview you can reapply?? i recently did my interview and made it all the way to the last day but was unsuccesful with the panel interview.
Currently 2 years from the date of the interview. But given the overwhelming demand for cockpit crews that may change downward as well.

FO Age limit

Hey Don,

Still waiting for a response from "White Knight on the age 48 thing? Do you have any input? OM-A states age 53 for an FO to join EK. Not sure if I have my info correct, would appreciate any info.

Cheers

Gday Wheel lock,

It would appear that previous command is required for the age to be 53. If no command then the age limit is 48, hence the commensurate experience bit. Or so it was explained to me by a Kiwi HR boss some months ago.

It was ruled this way for the fella I made the inquiry for anyway.

Snookie,

Airbus Training is Monday to Friday with weekends off. It was relentless and for people with no Airbus experience I can see how hard it must have been. Lots of CRJ guys were scratching their heads earlier on in the year!

We had little time off between sessions to digest what you just did, rest and then prepare for the next session.

(The Boeing guys back in Dubai on my intake had far more time between sims to prepare.)

Have your family over for a weekend to break up the flow, but if your coming off a CRJ, then as others have said, you will need time to get adjusted to the Airbus modes and flying style.

I had previous Bus experience and when my family came over I still had to disappear to get the work completed.

Lovely restaraunts though but mind the dog-crap and beggars everywhere!

More roadshows

I just got an email about Emirates doing another 4 roadshows in Sydney.

Do they think they will get that many applications from one city (they were here about 2 months ago).

Or....

are they circling Qantas and its big announcement on August 24th?

Hello!

quick question for those in the know:

if you complete days 4 of the interview process including the medical check, assuming that you receive a good medical result and good refrences, are there applicants who have still been rejected from EK after all this?

thanks in advance for your comments.

I read this forum assidously, but I never see anything related to ground training once hired.
Someone can to explain a little the process up to line check, and de pay during the training?

For those who have recently passed the selection and been offered a start date...when is the start date for? Three months from now or next year?

Thanks!

pre selection

Hi, I've just been invited to a pre selection interview in Madrid. Just wondering if anyone knows whether Emirates helps with transport costs and hotels for this, as they would if you went for the full process down in Dubai. I'd be going to Spain from the UK, if that helps.
