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.

CargoJock, It's not a commuting contract. You are required to provide your own transport back and forth to Dubai, and just receive the standard passenger line pilot receives (i.e 1 per year plus concessional) Depending on where you live, you may well end up paying for full fare tickets there and back, many times each year.

Depending on where you live you may well also end up paying tax in your home country.

The interview process is standard EK that is already written about at great length on this forum.

Probably a bad idea to take a job with a company based in the sandpit, then.

Cargojock, living in europe can end up really expensive.
Since the europe flights are pretty full most of the year you might have to pay yr own tickets back and forth business class full fare. 1000's of euros down the drain....

Your choice ofcourse

They're accepting now pilots from the "other side" of the Persian Gulf. The first pilots started this week.
