They recruit some Ab initio pilots from time to time, but it's only from one contracted school which supplies as many as they can legally have. Expansions seem to be over and don't count on a way in other than as a DEC or Stella graduate.

SunExpress recruiting foreign low hours First Officers

Good Day,

As seen recently on their website: http://hr-link.net/Home/Index

It seems they are taking Turkish citizens to train them at Stella, in addition to that, they have an open vacany for low hours FOs.

Can someone please elaborate on that, if foreign ready entry FOs can apply, or is it ment for Turkish citizens as well?

The last bunch of Stella Guys joined about 2 months ago in Antalya, they had been waiting for a while, their initial interviews where back in Jan/ Feb.
At the moment there is no plans to take any more foreigner FOs, SAW base will contract and some guys will have to move to other bases. Recruitment of Turkish Nationals is always on-going.

So if I get this right, you are telling people who are working or have been working there to think twice about what they say. And you haven't even worked there yourself...

I am not telling people who work there to think twice. They already know what they have. I am giving my own advice to the people who come here to have some information and read the comments which were made by people who like to produce a lot of rumour.

Genel Nitelikler

We are looking for Turkish First Officers and a good team member, who will be based in Antalya or Izmir
Min age of 21 years
Min CPL (A) / IR (A) Licence and IR on multi-engine aircraft
Have MCC course
ATPL (A) theoretical knowledge exams passed
Have a valid JAR FCL 3 class 1 medical certificate
English language proficiency for F/O candidates must be;
TOEIC (Reading 385, Listening 400, Speaking 160, Writing 150)
TOEFL IBT (Reading 22, Listening 21, Speaking 23, Writing 21)
Have university degree
No obligation of military service for male candidates

Normally they will require the Mollymawk results and TOEIC results as part of the screening...but.. if you have HR email its an easy enough question to ask and they will give you the heads up. Don't forget you have to pay 30000 Euro for the type rating as the bonding system is gone apart for ex military guys, they have the cost deducted over 5 years and have reduced salary.. You used to be able to supply a letter of guarantee from the bank but since so many " jumped ship" without meeting their obligations the system has changed.. reverbs on the thread : pilots pay to fly" and people ask why!

Will Sun Express still be flying the A330s for LH's Eurowings longhaul operation? If so, are experienced 737NG pilots transitioning to the Airbus or will they bring in Airbus-rated pilots?

Provided Eurowings LH operation really gets off the ground, do SXS/SXD have surplus of pilots they can send over?

If I may speculate, they would probably take people from LH to start the ops. Even though they have many people with experience on the 320 in SXS/SXD, I think setting up a long haul ops on a new aircraft type will be difficult without some help from outside.

Since the Eurowings probably is a way meant for LH to move the longhaul production to another lowcost subsidary, there will be plenty of laid off Lufthansa guys to do the operation

They have already started transition courses for ng Captains already based at SXD and about 8 Captains will transfer from SXS to SXD to fill the gaps.

Rumour has it SXD currently pays its captains 6000 net per month worked. If it's true, is the deal sweetened somewhat for 330 capts?

Sun Express Germany

I received an invite for assessment for SXD in Berlin. It's a 2 day assessment including a sim check on a B737 Classic.

Does anyone have any info regarding the selection process, i.e. the sorts of questions asked, the content of the psychometric tests and the sim profile? I'd be very happy for any information anyone might have.

I applied for an FO position and have several thousand hours B737NG time and speak fluent German.

I am also interested in some information regarding the assessment in Berlin.

Particularly in the psychology test, is it possible to prepare yourself for this?
