Have all of the guys that joined on a 12 month contract received a permanent contract at the end of the term?

No, the figures in the exam were straightforward.

I’ve heard that the holding pool of pilots who were accepted in 19/20 have started or are due to start. Due to upcoming winter period (Christmas transport) recruitment will not be done till the new year.

Was it the last few years always the case that you only get a temporary contract when you start ? And what are the chances to get a permanent contract ?

i don’t believe it’s their normal way of handling contracts. However, they started doing so when C19 came up. Annual contracts for rated people, showing that nor everybody wanted to stay. But also gave CLX the liberty of “letting people go” if the demand of the market would reduce significantly.

now, with the company investing in to type ratings, not sure what to expect.

Hello,

As CV recently opened applications for NTR FOs, has anyone already been called/mailed or knows how long it might take for them to reach out?
And can we expect to be in a holding pool for some time or will they start training rather soon to fill the bottom stack? (Word on the street has it there's a bunch of skippers retiring in the near future)

Thanks!

Hi there,

I'm a 744 rated FO and consider joining Cargolux when they start hiring again.

As far as I understand, the upgrade to the left seat will take approx. 10-12 years. How is the salary progression in that time? There is not too much difference between the normal FO and Senior FO pay on their website (around 5,800 vs 6,300). Is there a yearly raise (except inflation) or a pay scale according to years at the company? Or are the 6,300 Euros the maximum base pay a FO can reach before the upgrade?

Anyone heard anything

Hi all,

Was wondering if anyone had received a response yet? Just been radio silence here.
Maybe I have missed the cut 🤷🏼‍♂️.

Cheers

The guestimate to upgrade is a likely scenario.
FO salary progression includes a yearly time unit and automatic increases for inflation through the luxembourgish indexation rules.
On top there are tax free supplements for night, sunday and holiday duties as well as a daily allowance (per diem).

Hope that helps to clarify

Hey all,

Has anyone attended an assessment day lately, or even been invited for one? I applied back in November along with a few other buddies and its been radio silence since so I'm just wondering if anyone else has even heard a thing.

Many thanks!

As far as I know, everyone that started on a tempo contract eventually got a permanent one.

They’ve started using this as the “new standard” when Covid hit and for obviously reasons. I guess it suits them rather well, so no guarantees.

Cargolux is flying one of the aircrafts every pilot wished to fly in their careers.

Good luck for those trying to join Cargolux.
