Desperate times!! Despite all the promises of recruitment being fine and loads of applicants, this clearly proves that's not the case. more lies from the idiot management

So, as I read this....all they have done is drop the 4000hr total time requirement????


An honest question.....will this make a difference????

Its dropped from 2500hours on a multi engine jet to 2000hours on a multi engine jet, more in line with what the unmentionable airline up the road ask for.

Pray you don't get called. You will be so much better off in the Capital or elsewhere.

A primary reason for the change

Not a rumor nor heard it from my maid

The new requirements are aimed to attract certain applicants from certain airlines .. It benefits both EK And those airlines

To simplify it : Air Arabia - with a massive MPL program has reached a peak in training capability for the new comers
With massive numbers of highly trained FOs with excess of 1500 hours ( salary changes dramatically as you gain hours with the airlines) it was only smart to collaborate with EK

Many other low cost have tuned to the same method with EK / Unmentioned / QR

Counting on pilot shortage to see a change in our T/C is like a kid waiting to grow up to buy Lamborghini

Am NOT sure that's the best analogy...... for this part of the World at least. There're a lot of kids who already have a Lamborghini!

They will have come to the right airline given we are not allowed to fly raw data.

Devil Oh NO

It's not surprising EK have to lower the hour minimums to attract pilots to EK given the recruitment competition of the other big ME carriers, the arrogant management stance of if you don't like it......leave and the total denial that there is a worldwide pilot shortage.

Less hours in a log book may not mean a lesser pilot in skills, but there usually are vetting processes along the long climb up the aviation career ladder!!

I wonder how long it will be before I fly with an early twenty something, ex Euro LCC, only to wake up from some much required inflight rest to discover them playing some rubbish game on their Ipad...........again!!!!

I've heard from an FO who two times when he was taking his inflight rest, woke up to find the Capt sleeping as well.
