I just applied to EK and got the rejection email.

Requirements for FO's on the website says:
English Level 4
ICAO ATPL

My hours are:
2300TT
1300 Jet (small citations)
English Level 6
ICAO ATPL

The rejection email said that EK's requirements are:
A minimum of 4000 hours total flying time including 2000 hrs on multi-crew, multi-engine jet aircraft.
- OR -
2500 hrs on modern EFIS multi-crew, multi-engine jet aircraft with a MTOW of greater than 30T

What exactly is going on then? Do they have unwritten minimum requirements? or a problem with there computer generated review process?

Hi guys.

During the assessment. Do you get a RBI or a RMI for the spatial awareness test. Skytest does the tests with a RMI and Latest pilot jobs uses a RBI so I'm just wondering

Summit ... as far as I can see, you don't meet the requirements. Neither the 4000 TT nor 2500 whatever it was.

Your both right

I meet the requirements as mentioned on the EK home page

But I guess I don't meet the "hidden" requirements.

Confused!

Emirates (EK) Interview - all you need to know about it (threads merged)

Nah I think it's jut the rejection email wording that hasn't been updated.

Maybe they have a pool of guys who've just applied with a little more than what you currently offer so they've not accepted you at this stage.

Try again in a year once you've got a bit more under your belt or maybe a different operation (airline rather than bizjet) and you might find their opinion changes.

Unfortunately large operations are very impersonal and you won't find out the reason for rejection...

Rejection?

Is it a rejection e-mail - ie. you are not suitable for Emirates and don't contact them again?
Or did they state you do not currently meet their requirements and keep updating? That would be a very different situation.
Obviously they will interview from the top (in terms of experience) down as number/quality of applicants and recruiting needs vary. So you could meet the mins and not yet be invited in.
I can tell you at the moment it is very fluid at EK and today's hold pile could well be tomorrow's interviews.

It's weird...

In my current company, a cargo turboprop operator.
A FO is invited for the PSP1, while a captain (with obvious more hours and PIC hours) got a rejection mail.
So how do you explain this? Go figure...

But a friend of mine, who is a turboprop captain with another airliner with a lot of hours and PIC hours as well, just went to a PSP1 assessment... He is not that young, nor fresh anymore.

Mr Good Cat and Avid - I like your theories, I will try again in a few months and see if anything does change.

New SIM profile

Hi guys,

I just heard that there is a new SIM profile. I was wondering if this is also in DXB because I understood it was in Heathrow.

VFR Dep Air Work ( Climbing turns descends), raw data, single engine go around...

Hourly rate flight pay

Can someone enlighten me what the hourly rate is for flight pay received for flying hours on top the basic salary for both Capt's and F/O's?

Does it stay the same up to the threshold or does the rate go up once in overtime?

Just crunching some numbers

Cheers

CB

Skytest or LatestPilotJobs

Hi all,

Have been invited to the Pilot Selection and am considering subscribing to either Skytest or LatestPilotJobs to aid preparation. Just wondered if anyone has any thoughts on whether one may edge the other?

Thanks, Heinz

.

I will go slowly .

Late last month - this means that 6 weeks have not past yet .
If you do not hear from them within 6 weeks , then they will not concider(sic) me this time - means just that!

Just writing to confirm Mystico's post in regards to new profile.

There is a new profile, as you said its 3 modules:
-General handling with upper air work
-Raw data
-S/E work

Heathrow was mentioned too, and that wasn't on PSP

Very vague,

Best of luck anyway!
