Thank you!
My assessment didn't finish until 5.30, but they did ask if anyone had a flight to catch, in which case those would go first into sim and interview. So if you're scheduled to start in the morning, I wouldn't worry about it.

Now we all finished LT and we have been told that we get the new contract when the 6 months ends. Which means you spend 2-3 months working on the line getting paid like training.
The other thing is that you won't get the FO contract that they promise on the emails, you'll get a Second Officer contract, which in the UK is 39K and 5 pounds SBH.
Just to create awareness of this SCAM, because I have no other words to describe it.
I can 2nd what Porcellino wrote, SO Basic in Eastern Europe 20,4k €/a + I have no clue about the SBH rates there.

Not sure why you say that this is a SCAM when in fact you are a second officer up to 500h (you should have about 300 when you finish your training)
You should tell the full story and not only what's convenient to you. Never heard of anyone getting an FO contract after training. You probably mean JFO which is a different thing!

^^ Whatever title they're giving to you...be it SO, JFO, FO or whatever:
The FAQs told us to expect a JFO salary from 1st Line Check to 15ooh; when in fact you get an SO salary to 5ooh, thereafter (J)FO to 15oo, thereafter SFO salary to Captain. So after your first Line Check expect to be on your training salary for quite a while and thereafter on a SO salary.

First line check or after the 6 months training contract? As far as I know it's after the 6 months training contract and not the first line check.

"Fully checked out" is the exact wording.

Hi aviationfanatic, I freely say it's a scam because I was told that by RYR. Never in any email that anyone sent me says I will be a Second FO or JFO. I'm telling what happened to me to make people aware. So they wouldn't be surprised as me or my whole training course.
Even when we where in wings ceremony day at HQ we asked about this, and we were told in our faces "you get a First Officer contract after your Line Check". It's been month and a half after Line Check and I still haven't seen anything.
Also in which way is this convenient to me? As I say, letting people know, because during Type Rating training you'll hear a lot of things.

Let it go Porcellino, it happened. Just let it go before some brainwashed wannabe comes around and tells you off as it happened to me a couple of months ago. Let them find out the hard way.

Exactly! Fully checked out means completion of the 2nd line check as it should be included in the course plan

Realistic would be the correct term.

It seems there is no more spots at East Midlands for remainder of the year, anyone been through the process recently that can shed any light?

Everyone seems is doing the TR at AMS, is there any earlier dates then now Mid May?

When you're "in the system" you can just write them and ask to be put on wait list for any cancellations at either AMS, STD or EMA. .

Can someone confirm how the display is? I have seen an old prep package stating they change the display to not have altitude and speed display on the PFD and there is no ND. Is this true and that they have a classic 6 pack display, not the standard 737NG display used? I am going to use PMDG 737NGX to prepare for this so would like to have an idea of what display i should try to use if it is non standard. Thanks all.

You've got very old information. That used to be the case, but now it's just pure ND and PFD and no 6 pack display imitating a 737CL EFIS. And the ND is TRK UP but you will fly with it in FULL COMPASS ROSE mode which is HDG UP. It still gives you track, as does the compass card on the PFD below the AI.
