Air Hong Kong
Hong Kong | East & South East Asia
Air Hong Kong (AHK) currently operates 9 x A300F aircraft and 5 x A330F aircraft (3 x 330-300 P2F and 2 x A330-200F), all leased from DHL Aviation, serving the DHL Express Hong Kong (HK) hub network.
During normal times, a reliable roster that offers a great work/personal life balance.
The opportunity for pilots to work in a small airline with a people oriented culture, where pilots are highly respected, and their contributions are valued.
The opportunity for pilots to maintain their flying skills, and to continue a flying career with a successful airline in the current environment.
Pilots normally join as "First Officer 1" and will serve one year under probation. If the required standards are maintained, First Officer 1 ranked pilots will be promoted to the rank of First Officer 2 after a total of two years of service. Subject to satisfactory performance, promotion to Senior First Officer is usually after a total of three years of service. Selection for Command is driven by operational requirements and assessed individual suitability, in seniority order subject to individual fleet manning needs.
The normal AHK operation to support the DHL Express network sees most flights, departing the Hong Kong hub at 0300-0500 local time, and arriving at the outports 2-4 hours later. The aircraft remain at the outports during the day, then fly back to Hong Kong late evening, the crew resting during the days at the outports in quality hotels. There are also some other day/evening local time flight patterns.
Cargo is predominantly DHL Express freight; and AHK is highly focused on achieving on time performance. AHK also operates a small number of dedicated charter flights on behalf of Cathay Cargo.
One of AHKs competitive advantages is a highly engaged team culture, especially amongst our pilot community. AHK pilots go above and beyond the call of duty to get the job done, safely and on time. AHK seeks pilots who have a can-do attitude, a positive outlook, and who will be a good fit with our current agile, flexible, and proactive pilot workforce. AHK is proud of maintaining a diverse work place.
Safety performance data shows AHK maintains a high standard of flight operational safety. AHK expects our pilots to maintain a high standard of professional knowledge, prepare thoroughly for each flight, function effectively in a diverse team, operate according to our published procedures, and honestly report all hazards and incidents. In return AHK supports a non-punitive safety culture, and seeks only to learn from the windows into our operation provided by all incidents.
Steady blocks of days on/days off cycles. Each work cycle consisted of either one to two sectors each night, reserve duties, and recurrent simulator/ground training when due. Target monthly flying rate is 55 hours. During the current Covid-19 situation, longer flying patterns are in place. The nature of the normal AHK express cargo flying operation is such that changes to the commencement of duty cycles are rare.These cycles and targets are not contractual and may vary should the DHL Express operating plan change, however AHK aims to return after the Covid-19 situation to the principle of rostering predictable days on/days off cycles.
To support fatigue mitigation, AHK provides quality airport-convenient hotel accommodation from 11 hours prior to the commencement of the first duty event during each work pattern, through to the end of each pattern, regardless of type of duty.
