Normally before the training starts, but remember it s a bond. They will give your money back in max 3 years, depending on the time reported in your contract.
the payment can be advanced, or deducted from your pay check of half/ half. Usually you can find an agreement for that

I mean that you pay cash half soon and half in monthly deductions from pay check.
But there are many different agreements so it depends what they offer to you

Hey Beanhead, are you still there? I will have a fresh 737NG PC next month and was thinking of applying. At least I should go interview and see for myself. What contractor did you use because Silver wings is still only paying 7000 as opposed to 7500$. Going through ET directly might be the best. Thanks for anymore info.

I don t think ETH is paying 7500 usd for 737. It used to be 6500 till january then they increased by 500.
Now is 7000 + 1200 + 1250 (housing allowance) + overtime

My bad

I re-read that and now understand. Thanks Tri.

Now, to be clear on the bonuses, it's 4200 every six months in addition to 7000+1200+1250? Then after 3 years you get an additional 7000$? All USD?

Are the medical benefits worldwide? Is travel in bizzo or downgradable to economy. Can you change your destination so say instead of EWR you go to JFK? Do they have Zed/ID90 travel on all carriers in addition, can you buy biz/first Zed?

Thanks again.

The count you did on salary is correct (for 737/767 only) and it's all in USD.
Medical insurance abroad is valid only when you are on duty, it doesn t cover anything else.
Travel when you go on your days off is in businnes but downgradable if flight is full.
You need to send a mail a few days before the flight with the destination of your choice, you can change it every month if you want but it must be on Eth network.
Zed are available and if you fly Eth you have 2 biz class tkt a year for you and your family plus one every year of service plus of course econ ones.

I was with them on the 75/76 for 3 1/2 years until retiring last August.


They treated me extremely well. Everything they promised was delivered.


My mother died. Immediate ticket home, open ended leave until affairs sorted, emails of condolence from three members of management.


They even gave me a farewell reception.


Thanks ET

Great post duneprune. I found an African airline was much more accommodating and understanding than my previous US employer was.

normally on 777 sim but i think is under maintenance now so you will probably do it on 737 (or may be 767 or 787)
It s basically stick and rudder and of course you are not supposed to know the aircraft if it's not yours.

Hi davidaz68

thanks a lot for the infos, do you know if they ask a lot of triple heaven system questions or just atpl stuff? and regarding the basic salary during training, what are the actual status, do you get paid or you get paid later on (after training complete or line check I guess). How long it takes to complete the training? Do you know if they contact your last employer or just your references?

thanks a lot
