Yes, you will be able to go home the last day of your duty in the vast majority of the cases except for an unforeseen event, I think that in the 5 years I've been here, I haven't been able to go home the last day of my duty 2 or 3 times?? Can't really recall which but it is not too often. Cargo flights will be the majority of your roster right now, although flying with cabin attendants here is nothing like in the US, these girls are very polite and professional, the meals, schedules and overall quality of the operation is a LOT better on the passenger side, regrettably we are getting less and less of it.

Can anyone tell me how picky they are on the logbook review? One of my 3 logbooks has a few errors in it that were correctly fixed (cross thru and initial), stuff like time entered in wrong block, math errors that were corrected later in the book, etc. I also have everything in an electronic logbook so all the times in the end work out okay without worry. I'm just wondering if this kind of stuff would be an issue. Any input would be appreciated..
They are not going to conduct a forensic audit of your logbooks, however, you will have to spend some time making sure the math is correct as to the totals you are giving them and do some home work in separating the hours the way they want them divided (I know it is a pain but we all had to do it) they will ask for example that night SIC and Night PIC be separate, also they will not accept PICUS time nor will they accept the time you flew on OE for captain for example, to appear as PIC since that is really dual received, they will need hours and minutes and not decimals, if you have let's say 1,927.2 of night PIC, don't put 1,900+ as one probably would in a western company application, you need to put 1,927:12
You must be precise as to the math as it stands in your logbooks to the date of the application. Does that make sense?
Does anyone know what part of the screening most of the unsuccessful candidates are failing on? Is it the knowledge test, panel interview, sim ride, medical...or any other specific portion of the screening? Are there any (unofficial or official) pass rates or any percentages? Thank you.
We get no feed back as to why people fail the evaluation, it doesn't seem to have any logic some times, some people even pass the evaluation and are not offered a contract. As far as the medical goes, a recruiter told me many moons ago that about 60% were failing it, don't know if those statistics still stand.
So I see they are advertising for First Officer contracts, and my questions is wether you will ever be able to upgrade to captain? Seems like all the ca offers require PIC time, but if your contract is for FO, how will you ever get that pic time?! Will you be an FO for life? Thanks!
