It is the long term plan to stop training in Luxembourg, so they are sending trainees to Langen, Brussels, Sky Guide, LVNL etc on a rotational basis so get an idea of which places is best for a permanent move.
Salary is 12-1500 per month as a basic trainee plus the one-off allowances which total about 4.5k €
Salary increases if you make the transfer to Maastricht to around 2k €. During the final stage of training it is about 3.6k € (including shift and expat allowances). With one licence around 4.900€ and with the second validation just over 6000€
On completion of the first and second validations you receive 'bonuses' of around 8-10000€ each time, depending on your living situation.
There is a yearly backpay, worth between 800-2000€ depending on your grade and also a yearly travel expenses worth anything between 20-2000€ depending on where you where recruited from.
Ex-pat controllers are also entitled to a tax-free Dutch plated car and various other fringe benefits that mostly are NOT taken advantage of due to paperwork!
The FEAST test is basically to make sure that you have a brain in your head, but it is the one-on-one interview that really decides the outcome - DO NOT enter this interview thinking that you have got the job, otherwise you are probably in for a shock.
Eurocontrol are still recruiting 3 courses of Ab-initio students per year, totalling around 40-60 people per year - they also have recently taken experienced conversion controllers.
The failure rate is HIGH even from those who successfully passed the recruitment process - i'd say about 30% of those who start in Luxembourg make it to full validation - they even recently failed a couple of conversion controllers
Good luck with it, as I think you will need it - but if it works out its definately worth it
