I`ve been a long time reader and have finally registered.
@ Glide Away:
When EK opened the DEC programm i put my application in. My status was -applied- for weeks. As i only had level 4 from my company i took a test for level 5 and a week after updating my details with the new level i got the invitation for june.
My background is 11000h TT, 9500h Boeing 737 with 7000h LHS B737.
Currently flying for an european charter outfit. But also have flown in Canada, the US and in the Caribbean.
What i`ve heard so far is that DECs are for the A330 fleet mainly. But looking at my and 744 NOMADs background it looks more like it could be for 777 as well?

Wink Quien quisiera reclutar a un Argentino??

Gaucho, no creo que tengas algun chance, aunque en el pasado EK recluto algunos Mejicanos, que desde luego dejaron la cagada como todo latino que se haga respetar.
Igual creo que paciencia es una buena politica pues aunque demuestres mucho interes, son ellos los que deciden cuando.
No olvides que EK recruitment tiene a su disposicion algunas buenas notas sobre Latino Americanos como por ejemplo no lovidar:

1. La buena educacion de un Venezolano
2. La honradez de un Colombiano
3. Y por supuesto la nobleza de un Argentino.

Suerte y que los Chilenos no sepan de esto.
Espero que cuando te pregunten "say something funny" en la entrevista, puedas responder con esta connotacion, yo fui reclutado el mes pasado.

Hi, just woundering about the 4 days PSP in Dubai for DEC. I have a good idea of the F/O program but not this one.
Anyone done it who can give some feedback is much appreciated. I go there in July

Thank You

Application question

Just currently filling in the form and I got to the flying experience part. I don't have military experience. Do I just leave the part blank. Will it let me send application with some sections not complete.

I think you spent more time to write your post then to try and see if it works.

MerAir80, I think you misunderstand. I haven't tried it yet as I prefer to apply correctly first time. This site 99% of the time can be used to source advice and guidance on many subjects from like minded professionals. Unfortunately individuals like you keep bringing it down with stupid little remarks. If you can't help wind your neck in stop being an immature idiot.

Kindly, to Sir Mesh . . . . .

Hey dear Mesh, you don't have a very good sense of humor and you seem very touchy, too! Maybe even too much!
I only said that it would have been easier just trying either way to see which one is right. Unfortunately you didn't get that meaning! But it's not my fault!
And I read your polite reply!!!! If you like this way of talking, guess what? Why don't you stop writing silly stupid questions so that you won't get any "stupid little remark"? However, if you don't really know how to fill in the form about military experience (writing 0 or leaving it blank is not the same decision as your poet friend " to be or not to be"!), perhaps you should reconsider your decision to apply. Reading your reply again, I do think that you should unwind a little bit your neck: probably there's no blood reaching the brain, if any!

And a little reminder for you, oh dear: On this forum it's not forbidden (so far!) to write "little stupid remarks" and "very idiot questions", otherwise, respectively MerAir80 and Mesh, wouldn't have been admitted

Rogue 22

Rogue is right. First of all remember that in the UAE there is no privacy protection whatsoever as it is a no civil law country where only Sharja rules. Having that clear in your mind also consider that in this vacuum EK can do whatever comes to their mind in order to protect their interests. Actually only one interest PROFIT. If you wonder how they keep hundred of thousand of slave quiet in the UAE and how they maintain "peacefull" a place that is crucial cross point spying games for west and east I'll give you the answer: everything is under control. The number of CID agents in Dubai is unknown but probably in the thousands. Phone are normally hacked.
And the EK screening is no different. The Premium Inn hotel where you will stay is owned by EK and directly linked with the HQ. They will see your web surfing and will monitor what you drunk . The EK facilities are full of bugs and cameras and when left alone they will be observing you and listening to your conversation. So if you are ready for 1984, to work, keep your head down and never ever try to make a point..go ahead.. and enjoy modern slavery.

I think CID have more important things to worry about than how many beers a pilot has during a stay in Dubai. They don't need to bug your hotel for that, just head down to Barasti or Longs Bar on any given night!

Given how many murders they've solved & drug busts made lately I'd say they're worrying about the right things

MerAir80, thankfully I have spoken to an Ek Skipper friend who has set me straight regarding my question. Funny thing, he thought it was quite sensible. Good luck with your application, I'm sure you will get all you deserve with such a mature attitude....

Book Emirates

Hey Guys,

as I am invited to DXB the next month, I was searching for some up to date information about the EK Assessment and found a book that seems to be quite new. It is called "Emirates Interview & Assessment Guide". Is there anyone who made experience with the book? Can you recommend it?

Thanks for the Info

According to people exprienced EK interview in this thread, Latestpilot and skytest could satisfy you enough to prepare for assessment.

Could you please answer few questions? if you don't mind..

1. You are a first officer, aren't you?
2. If so, when did you submit the application to EK?
3. Type rated on Boeing or Airbus?
4. What's total time?

Appreciated in advance.

Hi everybody,
I`ve a question regarding the adv. compass test. I did a search through the whole thread and came up with different results. Does the memory test consist of Altitude, Heading, Speed AND Radio frequency? Or is it Alt, HDG and SPD only?
Thank you for answering!
