In Turkey 1000hrs a year is legal for instance. I have a Swedish license, will it automatically become an EASA license next time i renew it?

Turkey is a JAA state and will not automatically become an EASA state. To do so would require adoption of EASA Flight Time Limitations and all the other regulations, which would not necessarily be welcome by the THY management. There may be advantages for insurance costs, but some of the present working practices would have to change. At present some EASA states no longer accept the JAA medical from Turkey. This all begs the question, if Turkey does not adopt EASA regulations, will all Turkish JAA licences revert to just ICAO licences? Interesting times.

Gentlemen, anybody who is there can give us an update how it is working for the FOs there?

They have "updated" the T&Cs for FOs and the money is decent enough and you are employed directly by the airline.

Does anybody know if there are chances for FOs to upgrade within the airline or even switching to another type if you stay long enough as an expat?

No expats has been upgraded yet, so I won't believe the agencies in this matter.
Regarding agencies, Storm worked good for me.

If you guys have any doubt can PM me, but bear in mind that I've recently joined so my knowledge of the company isn't that good.

New rule will be in force

Turkish DGCA wrote to all companies that the amount of foreign pilots must be reduced to protect national pilots. Companies are not allowed to have more then 25 % of there FO's to be foreigners by june 2013 and 10% by the end of 2013. No validations or work permits will be given to companies who exceed these figures.

Son yıllarda ülkemizde hava taşımacılık sektörünün büyümesine paralel olarak pilot ihtiyacı artmakta ve artan bu ihtiyaca paralel olarak yabancı pilot istihdamında artış yaşanmaktadır. Ancak, son yıllarda uçuş okullarının kapasitelerinde de artışlar yaşanmıştır. Bakanlığımız tarafından ruhsatlandırılmış işletmelerde Türk Vatandaşı pilotların istihdam edilmesi esas olup, yabancı uyruklu pilot temini ancak zorunlu ve istisnai şartlarda kullanılmalıdır. Bu nedenle yabancı uyruklu pilot istihdamı konusunda bu düzenlemenin yapılması ihtiyacı ortaya çıkmıştır."

SHGM, belirtilen tarihlerde gereklilikleri yerine getiremeyen işletmelere 2920 sayılı Türk Sivil Havacılık Kanunu'nun 143'üncü Maddesi kapsamında işlem yapacak. Belirtilen tarihlerden sonra belirlenen oranın dışında yabancı uyruklu ikinci pilotlara Genel Müdürlük tarafından validasyon/çalışma izin belgesi düzenlenmeyecek.

Kamuoyuna Saygıyla Duyurulur….

So what about the 500 German FOs rumoured to be coming down as a sort of cooperation between Lufthansa and THY?

Payscale, "Burasi Türkiye", means this is Turkey. Wich translates into that rules, laws, common sense and constitutions are only guidelines.
