....and the rating is not relevant for being selected as future employee.

Good to hear about the rating - it is reassuring that a company is willing to hire the right person, not the rating.

No DEC? Surely demand dictates that policy?

Yes it will, but when you've got a huge number of Senior First Officers with 10 years+ service just waiting for the opportunity for a command and ready to go in virtually every respect then demand for DEC is likely to be limited!

OH

Even in the great years (2004-2008) nobody (to my knowledge) was hired as DEC. Everyone had to start as an F/O, but some did one or two tours as F/Os only before being sent to their upgrade courses. Normally it was a couple of months before that happened. Good old days...

correct, everyone through the right seat first, and indeed 2 to 3 months to the left seat

Anyone joining today will have a upgrade time of at least 10 years, unless something dramatic happens.

I'm afraid you're just being daft with that comment!

How so ?
Based on the age demographic, number of people leaving, upcoming retirements, number of FOs, current rate of upgrade, I'd say that 10 years is a very reasonable estimate. What's your take on it ? I've been in the company for 11 years and like to think I have a reasonable handle on things though I'm happy to be corrected.

Buzzc was spot on with his estimate. Let's hope that the fleet will grow significantly in the foreseeable future and conditions will improve.

Why such a difference between Netjets Europe and Netjets USA salary ?
according to the figures i found online, US pilots make twice the salary of a Europe Netjets pilot.
and the cost of living in the USA is globaly cheaper than here...

any ideas ?

European biz jet pay has fallen behind massively in recent years, both against airline pay, and of course against the US. What's more, EU operators generally require type ratings, (not netjets) so I'm surprised they can find anyone. My impression was that quality has correspondingly dropped, on average.

Are you sure? The last few times that I have been to the US I have paid a shit load of money for food, transportation etc.. Europe is still cheaper, in many places. Don't limit your view to cities like London, Paris, Munich....they are expensive, no doubt.

In Europe we still have too many pilots out of jobs or in basic/poor jobs who'd do almost anything to join a more organized outfit like Netjets (this is not limited to Netjets, there are other good contracts around!). Look at all the Air Hamburgs, Globeairs and whatever names they have. Many of their employees do not see their future there, that's a fact. Many would even accept a position as F/O and a paycut in order to get their lives back - don't forget that in Netjets you are OFF when you are OFF. No home standby during your off-days, or so.

The company has recently announced the intention to recruit 50 FOs before the busy season starts in May 2019, all for the Phenom 300 or the XL. 3 Indoc courses have been planned for pilots this year but I think the places have already been filled for those courses. I am not sure of the application process - perhaps still through Kura?

EDIT just looked at the Kura website - applications opened 15 Aug. Good luck.

I have been considering as a change to move from Airline Operation- Airbus to Corporate. To make a new challenge.

The working schedule attracts me.

It is permanent job?

What are the salaries ?

Yes, permanent job, I starting pay is in the mid-50k Euro/year plus per diem, other benefits as in the Kura ad (https://www.kuraaviation.com/netjets/).

Also, fairly accurate information here: Netjets Europe pilot jobs

Starting as an FO on the Phenom 300 or Citation XLS.

I guess the €56500 are gross, so how much tax would one pay and where?
Whats the monthly take home pay after tax?
Leave?
Kura is asking for a PBN license, what’s one of those? Lol

PBN endorsment is type specific, therefore this requirement is useless. Another KURA BS...

You need to have a PBN-endorsement on your current type, that's the main thing.

The starting salary will be above the one mentioned here and after 2 years you'll get even more. PPJN does not reflect the new figures from our CBA yet.
