Dubai-based budget carrier flydubai is looking to hire pilots for its growing fleet of aircraft and destinations. Interested applicants can go on the company website and register.
“If you’re selected to go on to the next stage, you’ll be invited to one of our assessment days in the UK or you can choose to attend one of our forthcoming pilot selection events,” says the company.
The forthcoming events will be held on 12th April 2013 at Global Pilot Career Conference and Job Fair, Tuscany Suites & Casino, 255 East Flamingo Rd, Las Vegas – USA; 6th - 9th May 2013 in Miami, USA and 13th - 16th May 2013 in Las Vegas, USA.

Pilots already rated on the aircraft will be subject to a non-contributory training bond of $24,000 which will depreciate in equal amounts over a period of 36 months, and non-rated pilots will be subject to a non-contributory training bond of $36,000 depreciating in equal amounts over a period of 36 months.
