Want to be an Emirates pilot? Here’s what you need to know

Emirates airline will be holding pilot recruitment roadshows to hire new employees to fly its growing network of international routes.

If you have always dreamed of being a pilot, afraid to break it to you but simulator time will not be counted as part of your calculated flying hours.

Reason: The airline is only looking for experienced and technically proficient commercial pilots.

The roadshow offers interested pilots and their partners a great opportunity to learn more about the recruitment process, and talk to Emirates’ staff about the extensive training, career development pathways and progression plans Emirates’ pilots are entitled to.

Emirates now offers pilots the option to join the airline’s dedicated Boeing 777 freighter pilot team. The freighter pilot contract offers a unique opportunity for pilots with a new 28 days on, 13 days off roster pattern. Pilots attending the roadshow can also obtain more information on the new freighter pilot contract.
