How peculiar - we did it on the 320 in AMS and were told it'd be 2 weeks to hear back on the result.

latestpilot, elite and skytest

Hi guys!

got a call 2 weeks back for PSP in September, would appreciate some advise from those of you who have used these prep tools: I already have latestpilot and it looks good, but shud it be used in conjunction with skytest or elite???considering elite is about USD 600 plus!!!!!

Also those of you who have attended or are going to...how much time before the actual dates did they get your visa done??as I haven't heard from them after submitting my papers!

While I don't want to sound too glib, the person who rang you did state they were going to check your ELP. It would appear that they weren't happy with it, as simple as that. In an airline with so many heavily accented cultures it is a problem that can arise during high stress periods on the flightdeck

My only suggestion would be to improve your ELP to a level 5 and then resubmit...?

"Not successful" doesnt mean your application has been rejected, it means that there is something about your application that they arent looking for right now/they have better options for...this may change once their requirement changes
Mail to the HR directly and ask for an explanation for the change in status, they might tell you what is wrong and how you might change it.

Good evening folks,

Just a quick question, I am very quickly nearing the 2000Jet 4000Total required to apply to EK (non Boeing or Airbus rated) so I figure it may be a long wait.

I was wondering do you have to be currently flying a jet Type before joining EK, or does simply having the time on a jet qualify.

The reason I ask is a command on a Turboprop with my current operator may well be available well before an assessment/ job offer with EK should I be successful and I'd quite fancy a command for a bit I think (subject to passing the command course of course!)

I am wondering what the rules are in the Middle East with regard to flying a 777/330 from a TP as I know British Airways state you need to be current on a jet type before you qualify for the long haul fleet.

Thanks for your input......

flyer19832007, unless you have time on a 30ton plus aircraft at the very least, dont count on EK giving you an interview.

Even then, i know people with a few 1000 hours on crj700 types who havent gotten an interview yet..

last time i heard they only wanted airbus/Boeing type rated crew, with the odd Embraer/CRJ guy getting a interview..

I am in a similar situation to you, 5400 hours now, 3600 on jet, but most of it sub 30 ton...

I have 6000 hours on B737 and A320 and I have been shortlisted for 2 years now and I don't think I will get invited any time soon.

I see they are starting road shows again. December in KL, for Airbus rated and experienced people.

They also sent out emails to applicants couple of days ago, especially advertising A380 DEFO.

From the email I received their priority is to fill the 380 FO positions and they are only considering people rated on and with time on Airbus or Boeings.

This could change, but not for the foreseeable future.

I bit the bullet and applied about 2 weeks ago. I got the email "application in short list hold pool" does anyone know what this means?

I had the email regarding 380 FO's this week too... One of my friends here seems quite interested but we discussed the supposed reuruitment ban between Qatar Airways and Emirates... Does anyone have first hand experience of this 'ban'?

Is it true?
Is it current?
Is there any way round it?

I mean does anyone 'know' about it, rather than has anyone 'heard' about it?!

I applied a few weeks ago and have been "SHORTLISTED" in capital letters. I did hear a rumour that whether shortlisted was written in capitals or lower case did mean different things. Any ideas what?

4300 total
3700 B737 inc 1500hr NG.

Prisoner - check here: http://www.pprune.org/middle-east/49...st-fos-16.html

"...They explained at the recent roadshow that shortlisted means you have met the requirements and/or being considered for specifically one of the fleet.

SHORLISTED means you have met the requirements and/or being considered for more than one type..."

But honestly I am not sure it is still a truth. With your Boeing experience you do not meet A380 requirements. And as far as I know they hire only for either 777, or 380. So on the basis of above mentioned thread, you should be in "Boeing group" and be "shortlisted".

Good luck !!!

Yeah I posted that. I promise that's what they said, although I've also noticed people recently saying they have been SHORTLISTED with only Boeing time.

I'm currently SHORTLISTED with only 2600 hours Airbus, previously this would have limited me to shortlisted.

Maybe they have changed policy either on A380 requirements, or maybe it's in anticipation of A350 recruitment which will accept Boeing guys.

Or maybe they are just as confused as we are!

EK Pilot Roadshows: during these roadshows do they only provide info about EK and the recruitment process or will they also give you the chance to try a SIM for PSP1?
