New recruits will very likely to be placed in the B777 fleet.

A380 trainers are being placed on unpaid deactivation for up to 3-4 months with 1 month active training then possibly another 3-4 months deactivation.

Current time to command in the B777 is around 5.5 to 6 years from date of join. This number can go up due to two factors. 1, stagnation of fleet size. 2, reducing number of trainers to handle the training backlog (due to trainer resignations)

Failed compass test

Hello everyone I am new here so pardon me if this a repeat question. I took the compass test recently and was not shortlisted. I was wondering if it's a one time deal or would I be able to reapply again after some time. Anyone that can assist me with information in this regard I would greatly appreciate. Thank you in advance

Unless the rules have recently changed, and as Don says, things do change, then you can reapply after two years.

Guys im a B738 F/O at Egyptair, i applied 2 years ago for Emirates when i had 2200 hours on type, they sent me that ive been short listed, then 4 days after that they sent me that my application is refused and they cannot tell the reason for that, 4 days ago i applied again in 3400 hours on type, and they sent me the same mail ( application refused with no reason to tell ) i tried deactivating the account and creating a new one, and the same happened, this really annoys me because i've revised the whole application all over again and again, and i see nothing wrong with it, any advices ? 😏

That is because there hasn't been a pay cut, unless you mean the lack of a pay rise and ludicrous inflation in Dubai eating away at our salaries. Similarly, for pilots, there is no promotion freeze and there has been no offer of unpaid leave.

Hello guys, I'm stuck in between difficult choices. I'm planning on joining Emirates Aviation College as a transfer student. I know their are lots of mixed reactions. Considering the fact that the course is very expensive (EASA Intergrated ATPL). Please i need your advises both on the positive and negative influence.

To go or not to go to EK

Hello guys, I have been reading a lot about EK in the past months, I know most threads in here are about pilots suggesting not to apply, but I guess every situation is different. Could you be so kind to read my case and give me your opinion?

I currently fly the A320 in Mexico, I am single and my current airline offers quick time to command (4 years) but the Captain pay is not as good as you may think (About 3500 USD per month) flight hours about 80-87 per month, basically on a 6-1 working scenario, working enviroment is good, most captains are a pleasure to fly with and layovers are 12-24 hours rest. I could stay here and upgrade in about a year, but thats about it, no union of benefits. Another option is to sign with AeroMexico, who offers a nice union and benefits, but will fly E190, then 737 and in about 10 more years 787, all of this as FO, time to command is about 13-16 years for the 737 and the pay for 787 FO is about 3500 USD per month.

Will you consider leave all of this behind and apply for EK? Both the aircraft and salary will be a substancial increase, plus the time to command will be faster, not to mention the upgrade is on a 777/A380, not a 737/A320

Thank you all for taking the time to read this, best regards!

the only reason I can think of maybe you might have the wrong passport..if this is your first attempt and you have the hours there can't be another reason

There are many Egyptian passport holders in EK. It is being discussed on another thread that recruitment may have been stopped, I stand corrected

Are EK still offering the "enhanced" package for experienced pilots? Seems to have disappeared from the careers site.
Thanks!

I believe you have to start your application with EK before the enhanced package pops up. .although it no longer says how enhanced it is.
