SunExpress Recruitment

SunExpress is expending its fleet with Anadolujet aircrafts in Turkey. Up to now they have taken already nine of them and still they will get other eight aircrafts.
They are recruiting expat captains every month in Istanbul for new Anatolian bases.

Yes I'm currently doing a type rating there. A great company, they are looking for expat captains and local FOs (you need to be a citizen)

That's the impression of mine and many of the people I know working there. Even though there are plenty of wagons pulled around by animals in Turkey i prefer not to ride 'em

Is there a way to get in contact with them, I applied 2 months ago but no answer. Looking for the job as a FO with no experience. Are they still hiring even if you are not a turkish citizen with no experience?

No they don't and probably won't for a while either. They usually don't answer if they're not interested because the number of applications is enormous.

Turkey is closed for foreign F/O's.
All Turkish carriers now hire only Turkish nationals for their F/O positions.

aozc & Akrep,

Did you guys do your TOEFL test in Turkey? and does sxs arrange it for you or do you have to take the test and then apply for the FO position?

Cheers

They first ask for your CV, after that they send you a mail asking for some documents. That's where you have to pass a mollymawk and a TOEFL/TOEIC on your own and then hand it in and wait for an interview if all other documents are in order.

They don't seem to have the ab-initio collaboration with Stella anymore but rumours are going online that they will collaborate with another school later.

The last Stella intake were lucky in the timing, the DGCA now requires non-Turkish FOs to have minimum 1500TT..this will exclude the majority of applicants for new FO positions, other than Turkish candidates.

Is that true with the DGCA and 1500 TT for non-turkish FO positions? I heard some non-turkish FO do get jobs in Turkey with less than 1500 TT.

I think there's some kind of a quote of how many but that's only what I've heard on the "street", I do not know if there's any truth to that.

According to the new rules on the Turkish CAA website, the 1500TT requirement is only applicable to ICAO licence holders. For EASA or JAA license holders there is no minimum requirement. Furthermore the licence validation which all foreign licence holders have to get, will also not be applicable anymore to EASA or JAA holders. The company that you will work for just has to get a document called 'yetki belgesi' which is valid for the duration of your employment.
Regards
