You do everything on your days OFF: several training events per year, commuting, Visa etc..

Thanks for the clarification. At least your travel days count as duty! And you have to go to your company propaganda party, quite amusing.

So 33% of your blocks of days off are spoilt by company duties. Not ideal for sure.

One of the main drawbacks with VistaJet is their low substandard pay. Itīs probably a good stepping stone with a solid ops, but the salary is just a joke.

The only happy campers are the Austrian pilots from what I hear, and thatís because they pay no taxes on their maltese income, but to be fair in my experience they have never set the bar very high in terms of salary expectations...

I presume you mean they are based in Malta and actually living out there.

Not necessarily, there may be a agreement between Austria and Malta and no further tax needs to be paid in Austria. Maybe someone can shed some light on this.

Living in Austria, working for a Maltese based company, you still need to pay the taxes and social security in Malta (which is something like 700-800Ä a month for an FO). The agreement between Austria and Malta states only that no extra taxes need to be paid to the Austrian state.The taxes in Austria are considerably higher and the difference does not need to be paid as is the case with France for example.

If you want to see drunk captains (married with kids) drooling on ten years younger flight attendants, you are very welcome. If adultery is not your style, I recommend avoiding the evening event.

You don't have to go to the party for that, this is what the 17 days on are for

Malta does not charge income taxes on non resident pilots, and as you pointed put, in this particular situation, neither do the Austrian authority. That explains my happy camper comment above.

As far as I know, this comes down only to bilateral agreements between countries.

I also live in Germany and work in another European country and even enjoy the perks of an expat contract that makes me pay less taxes in the country where I work and nothing is due to Germany.
Look at regulations concerning EU cross border workers in the EU.

Out of curiosity, how's things going in Vista and in the business jet side of aviation with this virus? Noticed a significant reduction in flights or the wealthy ones keep flying as normal?

I was told last week while flying to Europe from Canada that flying would increase because of the virus situation. Now more people would have access to the aircrafts instead of taking the airlines.

However by the end of the week when Trump closed the USA's borders and with others to follow, the boss said that this was changing everything and that the flying would drop.
