Thumbs up Passed on Monday

Hi folks, passed my final assessment on Monday, interview had no technical or ATPL stuff related contents. These elements are covered through the compass test already. Waiting now for the next steps, if anyone needs some extra information, please contact via PM or e-mail. Very helpful the ATTC guys, used remote training Emirates Assessment, Recruitment and Selection Process (but to be honest it includes a lot of stuff which was not necessary, f.e. briefing of CRM case studies etc., but as mentioned, they asked no technics, no CRM).

Anybody knows how they evaluate the candidates on the assessment? If you do a good sim and the group exercise is not so good o viceverse?. What's the importance on the math/technical compare to the simulator.

Cpt. Stephans

... talked with Cpt. Stephans (think, he's the top of the recruitment at EK) these days, asked for a friend of mine, he ensured me that he's got some flexibility if aspects like social background (btw. married with children highly preferred!) and good prospect to reach the minimum requirements within a reasonable time.

Hey guys & girls
I apply to Emirates in Dez14 and on February 15 I received a call from the HR for a "interview"
That went ok, just questions about my self, hours and ratings

Since then I didn't get any more news from Emirates

Any clue what could happen or what I should do ?
I continue see advertisement to 380 and 330 like I just saw today and it's quite strange that having my cv there and I meet all the requirements there's no development.

Thanks in advance.
( rated A320 with 5200 total time )

Don't forget the huge cost of living increase in Dubai.
And no real pay increase to make up for it.
Outstation / layover per diem decreases.
Rosters out of our control.
Forget about getting your contracted 42 days annual leave.
The list goes on...

If you must come to the Middle East, there are only two choices.
The other UAE airline or Qatar.
That's it.

Min. Req of EK ?

Hi guys!!

a quick question about the min. req. of EK

Emirates is looking for the best pilots in the world!

We are hiring motivated, technically proficient and experienced pilots who aspire to excellence.

If this describes you, and you have an ICAO ATPL along with excellent English language fluency (to ICAO English level 4 or above) we would like to hear from you.

We will accept applications from pilots from multi-engine, multi-crew, turboprop and jet aircraft, including business jets, with a MTOW of 10 tonnes or more.

What should I understand from this ?

I have 1673 Total Flight hours,1500 on Airbus A320.

Can I apply to this opportunity? Any idea??

A friend of mine had his invitation next november and received an email saying they have operational requirements impacting the simulator evaluation! i would appreciate any information, because I am waiting the invitation to DXB soon.

Thanks in advance

Yes, for an unfrozen ATPL you need at least 1500hrs, and some PIC/PICUS

Looks like they have now split up the interviews for the US guys.

A one day interview session miami.

Then travel to DXB if you pass.

Anyone done the one day part?

The selection programme is a 2 stage selection process comprising PSP 1 and 2 which will require your attendance for one day only and will involve assessments including aptitude testing, advanced COMPASS testing, an abstract reasoning test and an assessment in an B777 simulator and no knowledge of the 777 is required. All essential information will be given in the briefing. Candidates who are successful at this stage will then be invited to Dubai for PSP 3 at a later date to complete the remainder of the selection programme. The aim of this programme is to reduce your time spent in Dubai to fit in more easily with typical roster patterns.

Just because we are short of pilots doesn't mean recruitment is going to skimp on quality. All very capable? In who's eyes?
