Angel EK Road Show Gatwick Saturday 27th

---> visited the event at Gatwick last Saturday, interesting so far. 2 officals from EK: Capt. Martin Stephens and Mandy Kelly both are part of the recruiting staff. All applications are checked by Stephens and he outlined very clear, that if the requirements fit, you may be invited to the pre selection phase in Amsterdam very quick. Main focus and selective during PSP1 is the sim session, but pass rate for the capacity part (Compass) approx. more than 80%. If you‘ve got not the 3.000TT-Minimum but you‘re close to it, let‘s say 2.900, he‘d accept the application as well, as the crew demand at EK seems to be extremely high over the next years.

pity they still sticking to the over 30tonne rule though... You could have 10000hours as a PIC on CRJ's but be overlooked for someone who has 3000 tt on a boeing..

80% pass rate

Fubaliera

80% of the attendees pass Compass so it doesn't seem T H E selective factor in the scheme.

Capt. Stephens reflected some flexibility during the Gatwick event, I guess it's worthy to contact him directly to clarify individual parameters. They obeviously have a huge demand, this could be the background for some "special deals" maybe.

My application went from "Applied" to "Shortlisted" after 4 days of applying...not sure what the order is but I would say that your status will change to "Shortlisted"....

To sijet,

Hi, I know your post was put on ages ago but I've just come across it now. Your post is interesting, although I'm not a pilot, I am an Ex Crew member and I can tell you now, a LOT of the crew felt and still feel the same. They're not all from the UK, though. Some are from countries in a much worse situation than the UK and they STILL want to leave Dubai. In fact, most of the crew who resigned around the same time as me were leaving because they didn't like Dubai (and the job) or they had been flying for so long it was boring for them. I hated Dubai! That was my main reason for leaving, I think a lot of people from the UK, Australia, NZ etc leave early as they don't like the restrictions.

HI. I just got called for an interview in DXB for F/O on Airbus fleet. 11000 TT, 5500 h on A320 and B737 above 55 t as PIC. How long is the wait list for an upgrade in EK? Or should I stay flying A320 as PIC now?

I have been here almost 2 years on 330/340 fleet.
I don't think I will get an upgrade on the 380/350 for another 5 years minimun!
(that's my personal guess, could be more!)

Even if you join direct F/O on the 380 now, there is already way too many F/O ready to upgrade, add on that, all the 330/340 captain waiting for a fleet transfert and the 100ish captain they just transfert from the 777.

If you are only looking to come for a quick upgrade, just forget EK or at least the Airbus fllet both 330/340 and 380!

Have fun.

more like 6 years on Airbus now. Joining now will be at least 8-9 years and that is optimistic.
