I had to check out that one because I've never thought the difference between capitals and small letters...

So I'm "Shortlisted".

FEB 2012: 3800 TT, 2000 A320
APR 2013: 4700 TT, 2900 A320

I didn't know that, but as Xulu said a few posts back, SHORTLISTED means you have met the requirements for more than one type. And EK announced some time ago they require 3000 hrs Airbus time for A380 DEFO. Is the pattern revealing...?

- 3000 hours multi-crew, multi-engine jet with MTOW 50+ tonnes which must include 1500 hours and current on modern fly by wire Airbus aircraft

How I understand this is they only require 1500 hrs and current on modern Airbus and 3000 hrs multi-crew MEL jet over 50+ MTOW....but you are probably right, you are close to 3000 on Airbus and thats why your status is now SHORTLISTED....I applied 3 weeks ago and I am Shortlisted, I have 2600+ hrs on Airbus but not current and over 6100 ttl of which close to 4000 hrs are multi-crew jet over 50+ MTOW....so I am probably only been considered for the B777 I guess...anyways, good luck on the interview!!

Thank you RjAgCR!

At a pilot roadshow earlier this year, they mentioned that only current, 3000+ hrs bus drivers would be considered for A380 DEFO. Indeed, it's not written in the official requirements, so I don't know if it's still valid.

I have 2600+ hrs on Airbus but not current and over 6100 ttl
...so I am probably only been considered for the B777 I guess...
With your experience, I guess so too.

Hope they call you soon!

They also mentioned they are currently inviting people to assessment with >2800 hrs. So you could be SHORTLISTED before you hit the official requirements, as is the case above. Airbus pool is essentially empty.

Worth putting in an application and updating it regularly.

Buys Ballot & Xulu

Thanks for the info ... I will wait and see what happens, the only thing is that I am currently flying the E190 PIC so no longer current on the bus and wont get past the hours I already have the airbus .... anyways, I am Shortlisted and when the times comes they will call me ...the type, although I'd love to fly the A380, is no my priority right now...but we'll see what happens...

Good luck to you on the assessment and keep us posted on how it goes...

Fly safe

in my opinion they will not invite you soon with such hrs due to the location you live in. More than likely EK much prefers european pilot than others. Ive met a pilot was successful to get already hired by EK as a 380 DEFO. But he is still building airbus time in his present company to meet the EK requirement. after finishing building, the date of joing will be given from EK. we should be more patient and relax. Just my 2 cents.

Sorry but you've completely lost track with your post. EK has more than 80 different nationalities flying their planes. Since supply is much higher than demand they are selecting the most suitable ones at this time and I can assure you "nationality selection" is not part of the process. Please get your facts straight before posting non sense.

Just got an interview date in DXB. NOt sure wether to go or not. Too long time till the upgrade 10-12 y. I think Qatar or even Etihad will be sooner if I go DEC 320 TRI. Even China offers DEC on 330 as NTR PIC.
11000 t.t. 8000 PIC, almost 6000 jet PIC 737 and A320

I know the ads (including the one on PPRuNe) are saying A380 FO slots for suitable Airbus rated pilots. But it also sounds like many Boeing guys getting called too. Does that mean that Boeing guys might be considered for the A380 or does it strictly mean that 777 slots are starting to open up again?

The plan is to put 320 pilots on a CCQ . So I would say only 320 pilots for the 380

Hi all,

3400 hrs TT, just shy of 3000 hrs A320

Has anyone else gotten the invitation?
