FCI is recruiting for Turkish

#1 Post by loopa » Tue Sep 01, 2015 6:48 am

I don't know why they can't say who they are recruiting for.

Cross reference the non-type rated job ad's at Turkish Airlines versus what FCI is posting for in the jobs ad and they are identical.

Anyone have any insight into the working conditions at Turkish? Rumour is that they are needing 4000 pilot's in a short time frame. Can anyone confirm or deny?

I guess as an agency they don't want pilots to bypass them and contact directly Turkish. $$$

They are expanding but I don't know if they need 4000 Pilots. Istanbul Airport is already close to capacity and I'm not sure when the new airport will open.

The biggest issue for me with this job is that they don't pay in USD or Euro but in Lira. The Lira is in free fall against both the USD and the Euro so it's a huge wage decrease every year (15-25%).

Always fly a stable approach - it's the only stability you'll find in this business
