There are many reasons why Emirates is sooooooo desperate for pilots - many of whom are jumping like rats from a ship. Anyone considering EK should do extensive, thorough research and look at the other aviation discussion boards as well.

I do agree, if EK offered US basing that would only help their own efforts. Highly doubt that will happen though...

Agreed, all they have to do is open a JFK base for US crews and that 1000 would be filled instantly. Of course that would mean admitting that no one chooses to live in Dubai, just forced to by other circumstances.

EK is a fu&*#ing joke. Ive got 12 years 121, thousands of TPIC, 3 internal recs. Their internal screening department is a joke. I continually get emails stating that I dont meet the minimum 2000 hours multi-crew time. And yes, my app indeed states 5K+ multi crew time....I truly believe half of their problem is their own idiocracy in vetting online apps. My buds say I may be better off....

The fact that EK is reducing the minimums...well, those candidates still need to pass the recruitment process, which is difficult.

If you don't go crazy spending here in Dubai it still pays as well if not better than mainline. But you fly a lot. A LOT.

the rosters are nothing like what they once were. And thats where the majority of the dissatisfaction is

If we were losing 10% a month that would mean all our current pilots would be gone in 10 months. I think you mean a 10% rate for the year.

Actually that's not quite how the math works. Losing 10% does not linearly go to 0 in 10 months. Say you have 100 pilots. Losing 10% a month means down to 90 in one month. Losing 10% again means down to 81. 10% again means down to ~73. Then 10% again 65.61, and so it goes 59.05, 53.14, 47.83, 43.05, 38.74, and 34.87.

So if you started with 100 pilots and lost 10% every month then by month 10 you'd have ~35 pilots left.

ICAO ATPL
English Level 4

I just applied with:
2300 hrs TT
1300 hrs Jet (small citation jets)
ICAO ATPL
English Level 6

Surely i meet these requirements, and if so, why did i get the rejection email saying they require

A minimum of 4000 hours total flying time including 2000 hrs on multi-crew, multi-engine jet aircraft.
- OR -
2500 hrs on modern EFIS multi-crew, multi-engine jet aircraft with a MTOW of greater than 30T

It's not a net loss...there are new hires every month.

The guys on pprune said the official loss rate is 4% a month, and that's because anyone over 50 is NOT officially leaving...they are retired and don't countin the official loss rate. Pprune guys says the actual loss rate is 11-14% a month. I don't know how many new joiners per month, so I don't know the net loss per month.

Whip Whitaker
09-08-2015, 07:30 AM
Sorry Cliff but I actually work at EK and can actually look at our seniority list. We are not losing anywhere close to 4% a month. That would be 140 pilots leaving each month. 11% a month equals 385 pilots leaving each month. But I guess if its on PPrune it must be true.

PILOTGUY
09-08-2015, 09:16 AM
Then look a little harder. There are ghost pilots on the list still that quit over 6 months ago. The seniority list is worthless.
I have heard from a reliable source that is almost touching 5% at one point in recent months.

Sliceback
09-08-2015, 01:44 PM
Wouldn't the proof in the pudding be to post the initials, DOH's, seniority number, and last month flown by the 'ghost' pilots?

If it's dozens, or hundreds, of 'ghost' pilots it should be pretty easy to get supporting data.

Whip Whitaker
09-08-2015, 04:45 PM
Pilotguy, with all due respect this isnt Rocket Science. If 5% of the pilots were leaving MONTHLY, that would be roughly 190 pilots gone each month. About 2300 pilots a YEAR. Do you really believe that many are leaving? I can see a 5 or 10% YEARLY rate however.

NEDude
09-08-2015, 11:05 PM
Clearly the attrition rate cannot be a consistent 5-10% each month. That is simply not sustainable and Emirates would be cancelling several flights per day/week/month if attrition were that high each month.

The real proof of their pilot situation is just like at other airlines around the world. When they are truly hurting for pilots they initially require more block hours from pilots on staff and increase recruitment activities. If that is insufficient they will then reduce required qualifications. Lastly they will begin to improve pay/benefits and working conditions. What has Emirates been doing in this list? From what I can read here and in other places is that they are requiring more block hours from pilots (and reducing or eliminating vacations) and they are stepping up recruitment activities. So clearly they are feeling the pinch at some level. They may have even begun to reduce required qualifications. But clearly they are not at the point where they are desperate enough to improve pay/benefits and working conditions.

Emirates does have a great product for its passengers and has clearly become a global force in air transportation. But for most of us Dubai is a LONG way from home and if you are a westerner, it is surrounded by a lot of not so friendly places. When those factors are combined with the 800 pound gorilla located northeast east of Dubai, China, that is offering ungodly amounts of money, commuting contracts and the ability to remain in the left seat, or in some cases a very quick upgrade for experienced FOs, Emirates has lost a lot of its lustre. In all honesty I hate China. But I make significantly more than I would at Emirates, and I have a commuting contract that allows me to still maintain my residence in the country of my choice, and I get six months vacation annually. In many ways I would be attracted to Emirates, but until they can come close to what I currently have, they are out of luck.

Most pilots have been doing full blocks for awhile now. 777 seems to be gaining the undesirable flights while the 380 takes the better ones. 330 mostly crap flights but all 330/340 retired in the next 18 months . Of course there will be those that say the 330 wil never leave. 330 pilots rumoured to being transferred to 380 in October after being told next year. The overall pilot numbers has not increased fir some time. Indicating @ 10% attrition over the past 12/18 months but don't quote me on that. Next year brings a lot of new aircraft but don't know about retirements. Depending on what you read 30 to 50 fleet increase over the next 9 years 250 up to 300. Even some of the early 380 are planned to be retired by then. The orders sound impressive but are mainly replacements.

I read recently that Emirates cannot grow more than 260-300 planes until the new airport at Al-Maktoum opens fully. Then i heard it can grow to 450+. That is if Airbus keeps making the A380 and if Emirates will keep and get more pilots.

If there was a US base, Emirates would have to follow US labor laws to US based crews right? Like the right to Unionize, etc?

Since the IRS came up with this FATCA (foreign account tax compliant act) in March 2010 and FBAR (foreign bank account report) this is specifically for US nationals working abroad, now they are on hunt for those that have not properly filed and/or disclose bank accounts correctly. There is a credit of $99300 per year tax free then after is taxed at......I believe 30% up to 39.5 % if u cross 250k a year (i think)
Dubai has no double tax agreement with US so u pay uncle sam in full.
I hear Dubai is a tax free country but there are some services that are taxed at 10% and the latest is they are exploring ways to tax more.....so be careful when u accept work overseas.....

"We are writing in relation to your application to join Emirates as a First Officer. We have now had the opportunity to review your application.

Currently, Emirates' minimum requirements are as follows:

First Officers

- Technically proficient and experienced pilots on multi-crew, multi-engine commercial aircraft.
- ICAO ATPL (not frozen)
- ICAO English level 4 or above.
- Preference will be given to applicants with international commercial airline experience


Please continue to update your application at our website Pilots (http://www.emirates.com/pilots) to ensure that your professional experience (including flying hours, aircraft types and dates flown) is correctly reflected.

1. It's your technical knowledge: Aircraft Sys, SOP, Performanace, etc.

2. Non Single Pilot flying

3. No worries I have met a few folks that have corporate flying granted they had prior 121 and current M.E. flying when they joined.

4. They stack your experience based on the pool or banks of applicants they have. With the recent downgrade of minimums and once things get sorted, you guys should started getting contacted soon.

They may not be that keen on hiring US pilots right now. Statistically speaking, you will leave after three years of abuse.

You can debate the attrition percentages. Fact of the matter is that they are short of pilots.

People are resigning and the recruitment numbers are keeping things even at best. Hence the reduction in hiring minimums to broaden their prospective "pool" of pilots.

Even if you have attractive experience and flight time numbers, I believe their intention is to hire people less likely to leave. At least for the foreseeable future.

If you really are keen on EK, I wish you the best of luck. Beware, it is not the Utopia. Far from it. So if it does not come to fruition ...better things are in wait for you.

Although there is a serious problem with pilots getting creative with their resumes on the international expat market.... The more reputable companies do comprehensive employment background checks and EK is one of those companies so personally I don't put too much credit on this story..., besides the fact that training at EK is not the easiest thing to pass so somebody with deficiencies in their airmanship would have an uphill battle, and without the protection of employment laws and unions, I would suspect that those deficiencies would be apparent during training at this particular airline, their typical failure rate is at around 20% the last I spoke with one of their instructors.

There are many stories about the international expat pilot market that keep being repeated up to the point that people swear by them..., but all they are is stories!

True that some of the guys with Parker pen time get caught out in training, but not all.

Emirates' background checks are not that good to be honest. I've had people ask me about DUIs and such. The answer straight from recruiting at the time was, "just don't put it down, they don't check".

When Varig went out of business a lot of late 30s, early 40s guys showed up as DECs with 3000 PIC in the MD-11. Yeah right!!, Varig was a very senior airline, there is no way those guys had PIC time in the MD-11.

The first of that generation of DECs was not hired until mid-2003. All pilots hired in 2001, 2002, and up until about August 2003 were hired as First Officers.

That's back before you guys knew where Dubai was in the world ;)

Sniper66,

TP is not insulting you or anyone that's why he made sure he put a "winky smiley face". I'm not sure if you saw that. It's sarcasm.

I recently interviewed with Emirates Airlines and I was wondering how long does it take for them to contact your references? I have read that it can take anywhere from one week to six weeks but most of the posts were from few years back. So if someone who has recently been offered the job can tell me exactly how long they waited, I would appreciate it. Thank you.

Approximately within 10 business days. Make sure your referrences are credible and their letters constructively positive.

It's been six weeks since I interviewed and last week I sent a email to find out what is going on, they replied back saying that my application is still in the approval stages. I have no idea what does that mean. Just waiting and hoping to hear something soon.

Was watching Southern Justice on the National Geographic Channel one afternoon and saw what seemed like a minute long Emirates commercial featuring a woman pilot from the USA. Seemed pretty glamorous from 'their' perspective. After watching it again they had her sitting in the left seat in a few snippets but she only has three strips. She be hot though ;)

That was strange. How many times did she say "girly girl"?

It had a really scientology vibe to it.

Emirates offer careers in Aviation IT across the travel, transportation or leisure industry and are looking for talented professional. They are currently seeking highly motivated, experienced IT professionals for career opportunities across a wide spectrum of roles.

And according to mutual friend she has her apps in at AMR, DAL, FDX and UAL. Glamourous indeed...

It is not of our business who she has applications with....., that is PRIVATE information that shouldn't be published here without her consent

If that keeps up EK won't use any more U.S. pilots in their advertising.

Nonsense......! Just because she did a commertial...., doesn't gives us the right to publish details about her professional nor personal life..!

Notwithstanding that it is against this site policy as well.

I kindly ask that the moderators remove the information

Why not? She seems more than willing to publish them herself. But hey, a widebody Captain at age 33. I give her full credit for a highly unusual accomplishment being achieved via a highly unusual avenue. Some would choose to be humble about it, others..... not so much.

They do it to themselves. Treating their western expat pilots like 3rd world guest workers isn't going to get them employee longevity.

I really like Dubai and used to want to work for Emirates before I talked to a couple of their 777 captains at the pool at the Westin Beach resort. They literally had to look over their shoulder every time they answered a question about QOL, work, benefits etc. as even expressing their opinion about the company (that was very reserved) could have gotten them fired. They said they were writing LORs for all their co-workers at the Legacies they were furloughed from and recommended to stick with US carriers with employee protections.

So got the invite for an interview w Emirates next month. I have looked around on the boards and can't find too many recent or definitive answers on how to prep for the interview. Is there any go-to interview prep (aero-crew, cage, etc...) that guys/gals go to for Emirates? I just got the outline from them and it sounds Intense!!!

Skitz....

As a former EK guy, I really wonder if you realise what you're about to get yourself into. Have you really done your homework on what its' like there?

It looks great from the outside... brilliant marketing dept for this. But you are akin to slave labor once you've resigned from your current employer and are stuck there (golden handcuffs we say).

Rosters are absolutely atrocious with most... seriously... MOST guys flying 98 hours a month. Might not sound that bad but when you combine that amount of flying with the non-circadium rhythmic of those 98 hours, it wreaks havoc on your body.... young or old.

42 days of vacation a year? Nope. Again brilliant marketing but by law, they only have to give 30 and with so many guys resigning and not the quality of guys coming in to replace them, the ones who stay at EK have to pick up the slack and fly upward of 100 plus hours in some cases. you'll only get 30 days per year... and worse, it can be and at times will be given in spurts of 4-5 days at a time. No credit give for those vacation days either.

You need to be really desperate from your current job to join EK. I know it looks so good from the outside, but try to find someone on the inside and discover what it's like when you scratch the surface.

It's simply a punitive culture that gets worse as more guys leave making those who stay have to fly those 100 hours I'm talking about month, after month, after month, 4 days vacation, month after month after month etc....

I hope you the picture.

I absolutely agree with this, these middle eastern and asian carriers are doing what US regionals were doing to people pre colgan era and they dont have to deal with unions.... watch out - PFT and 3rd world pilots are common, they just put all the responsibility on the captains and the rest of the pilots are just a body to fill a seat in the eyes of the upper bean counters.

Try not to paint with a broad brush.......!

I won't speak about the ME but Asia is pretty big and it contains many countries and many companies...:rolleyes:

At my gig, we adopted the new rest rules over a year before it was adopted in the USA. We adopted those rules regardless of you flying cargo or passengers (not even done in the US) our ULH rules are better than what the majors in the US are using at the moment.

I have many friends flying ULH in China at the moment and their work rules are actually pretty good...!

There is indeed a great need for pilots out here because of the growth but training is very comprehensive...., it takes years for one of these cadets to join the line, I don't agree with mixing the standards in India or Indonesia with the standards in China or Japan just because they are in Asia.

Third world pilots???? The majority of pilots flying the expat market in Asia today are from Oceania, The EU and the USA....????

What on earth are you talking about?

Ok true take japan lut of that block but in my neck of the woods indian, south african, and random ex ussr pssports are the new prevelace as the labor is cheaper. Yes the older folks are typically good but many of the new cadets or direct entry folks ive been flying with come from the third world.
