Do you think 4000 hours using autopilot makes someone better??
There has to be a line drawn somewhere.
You prefer landings to hours? Manual to automated flying?
I's all debatable but in this specific case it's EK's call.
They will eventually lower the requirement, but i'm afraid it will still be hours.

If I remember correctly, the minimum requirement of 4000TT is there since 2003. Before I think it was 2500TT.
I am sure you can find FO's with a few thousand hours who are more than able to to the job, are willing to come here and wait a few years longer to get their upgrade. If they have spent most of their time in a "glass cockpit", I don't see any reason not to let them try the interview.
We have FO's now that have a few hundred hours sitting in the right seat, and they can do the job.

Rgds,

The tech exam is not worth styudying for.

It's a multiple choice exam on basic ATPL stuff. While not strictly allowed they seem to leave the room while you are doing the test, and the group tends to help each other out discretly. It's also not weighted very much in the whole process, so if you've been flying long enough to meet their minimums you'll have no issues passing it. Don't waste your time studying for it imho.

Agree completely with tbaylx. It's almost a non event. No more figuring out density alts, TODA definitions,

First day is a nail biting experience waiting for the call at your hotel to see if you'll come back the next day.

New EK Selection

I have heared that emirates will start with a new selection process from now on. Can anyone give me some information about the process.

Is there still a group discussion ?

Does someone know something abou the ICAO English test ?

Which tech questions and which skill test do i have to expect.

Thanks

Yes they leave the room...no it's not a conspiracy. Our group silently did the exam individually then traded questions at the end on the ones we weren't sure about. Each exam is the same or similar questions, but in different orders, so you can't all put "b"for question #25 for example. it's about 30 questions and nothing at all to worry about.
The sim is a visual circuit to a landing followed by a V1 cut with a S/E MA and G/A. When i did the assessment we weren't allowed to use A/P..i heard a rumour that's changed now.

Ek Interview Book

If anyone has the XYZ Interview book and wants to sell it, I would be keen to buy it from you.

I know people say the tech quiz isn't much, but I have friends who think pilots who think pilots should be able to quote "theory" of lift and what not. What's hard depends on what you know

Any PM's would be appreciatted
