Just in case you didnt know there is a program ran by CAE to supply pilots for FLYBUBAI. Only thing is that its only to be very expensive and risky.. you have to be recommended by the flight training department for the FLYDUBAI interview, otherwise you leave CAE with a typerating and no job and owing a gold bullion to a the bank or Ah long. Big Grin

OKey DOkey... the cost.

The cost is $33000 USD and the base training is not provided...
During the check an authorized Flydubai representative will observe the trainee and may offer an interview with them.

If you have JET ORIENTATION is discounted to $29000USD.

ITs one of the most expensive NG type rating... I think. Average NG type rating cost about 8/9000usd. By the way its CAE is charging for this course not FLYDUBAI. You still need to pass the interview selection by flydubai...
