Some further follow ups on reserve, What do you do for the whole 35 days? Are you always on standby at the airport or do you get dayoffs in reserve months too? Can you plan any dayoffs in advance? What if the my reserve duty falls into the month that my bid group is on the top, do I get to bid anything?
Rudolf
- No airport standby. A period of 10 hours on call to be ready for pick up within 30 minutes from home.
- Duties as well as off days are usually assigned the day before at 1800.
- No planning ahead of days off.
- Reserve months fall into lowest or second lowest bid month.

Hi, there Let me ask some questions about ATPL questions.

1: Are the ATPL questions one of compass tests? If so, How we would answer them? ( we would choose one in some-choice answers or type the answer? )

2: According to the LPJ, There are also ATPL questions in Panel Interview. They would ask you about ATPL knowledges duirng the interview too?

Im glad if you give me the answers. Thanks alot!

1. Yes, one of the six parts of the compass test is the 30 question ATPL test. It’s very similar to the questions asked on LPJ
2. I went for the processes in July and wasn’t asked any ATPL questions in my panel interview

Anyone else starting on the 4th of November for the T7?

Come on over gents. We're short staffed, overworked, I'm severely fatigued and regularly falling ill. The more the merrier so I can fly less and see my family more.

Turning up is enough. Having a pulse helps but is no longer essential.

(I'm in a cynical mood today. Seems to happen a lot recently, especially when the rosters come out.)

Ek have been using leave days in lieu of days after ULR flights for some years . Now they are using leave in lieu of days off before ULR flights . The OMA states you will be non acclimatised after leave and will be given three local nights off prior to any ULR flight . This use to mean three days off after leave, allowing you to return to dxb on your last day of leave. This has now been adjusted, to only two days off . As your leave finishes at 2359hrs, it is considered that the period between 0000hrs and 0800hrs will be your first local night. So, the majority of pilots at this mostly Expat airline, travel will need to start on the second last day of leave to achieve feet on ground prior to midnight on the last day of leave. Several pilots have been caught out by this recently . They have been asked to explain why they were not acclimatised after leave, and are now awaiting sentencing . The funny thing is they were contacted after the trip, not in the days before .
Leave has been already restricted to only 30 days instead of the contracted 42 . With this new move, leave has been artificially reduced again .
The OMA use to state that a travel day off would be applied after leave . Oh how those days have disappeared .
This should help stem the flow of pilots leaving, and should be a great shot in the arm for recruiting . Great work DM and team .

What I always found strange, was the fact you had to be acclimatised leaving Dubai on a ULR.. but on the return trip , there is no such requirement. So for example, you need 3 local nights before you go to New York, but you can have 24 hours in NY and your fine to fly home. I would love someone to explain that to me.

CAPT LIM

Hi Guys,

I applied emirates last year and failed the process. I was trying my luck to re apply and all they emailed me was i cant re apply with ek in the near future as they will not accept my application.

The reason being i re applied with another new email and apparently they were not happy with that. What should i do now? My career flying the shiny 777 is ruined.

Don, not trying to state the obvious, but the work around is to go sick If unacclimatised 3 nights before leave commences, remembering that one can only become “unacclimatised” when a “duty period” ends outside the 2hr band,
Beat the B’stards with their own rules.
BTW, it’s a visit to the clinic to certify, well worth it in my view, and it’s what sick leave is for.

don, you clearly have NO IDEA what you are talking about. Better shut up than post shit like that.
You are required to be acclimatised for ULR, being acclimatised means 3 local nights in a time zone within 2 hours.
So having 2 days off after leave exactly fulfills the requirement to be acclimatised.

AirbusChap, single intakes (from what I've just experienced) are being placed in Millenium, Tecom or Manazel.

g109,

You do seem like an excitable type . It would be three nights if you are boots on ground before midnight on your last day of leave . For most that means leaving their home country on their second last day of leave .
​​​​​And that isn't ok .
