An interesting if somewhat odd ball outfit is what I hear from friends who work/have worked there.

They summed it up thus

Fair pay, generous allowances,very varied flying and not much of it in winter are the plus points.

On the debt side depending on fleet.
30 minutes standby call out
Night mail
Very unstable roster due to the nature of the business, crewing undertake not to change your day off with less than 24 hours notice prior to your day off!!
You maybe down graded to RHS after sim performance in the Autumn, but never in spring?
Any talk of fast track command is just that
There can be a lot of time away from home and that can include days off

If you live within 5 mins of STN It might be worth a look, but go in with eyes wide open .....
