Been here a little while and probably time to move on..........sadly I don't think I'll ever find a job that's a much fun as flybe.....the crews I fly with are awesome!

Go for it! Highly recommended.

Not to be critical, but are you not putting the cart before the horse a bit here?

Well at least he's asking the question here rather than at the interview.

I agree with what you are saying Pick me Flybe, I am just trying to do as much research as I can. If I`m applying for a scheme tagged with an airline then I would like to see where this could lead and what potential it has for my career.

I would rather do too much research then too little and thankyou to everyone with your responses. It has confirmed that to me that this really is a great opportunity!!

I see where your coming from duir, I do need to get the license first but I think you have got the wrong impression of why I started this thread.

I wanted to enquire about the benefits of being tagged to Flybe wihile obtaining the license, if they are a good company to work for and if this provides a good foundation for further enhance career prospects. I already mentioned before how I would love the opportunity to fly the Q400.

Your quite right there is no rush and with everyones such positive replys about working for Flybe on this thread I would imagine many do not leave due to bad managemet, crews, lifestlye, etc but for an increase in salary to pay the bills and have some more spare change to enjoy lifes little luxuries with.

Thanks again for everyones opinion, fingers crossed for all those who have recently applied to the Maps scheme that we make it to stage 3!

He also wondered about commiting to the likes of Flybe but held out. He is now an F/O on the Ba RJ at City Flier.....jammy $%^!!!
What on earth makes you imply that Cityflier is so much better than Flybe? Their pay for the first two years as FO is LOWER than Flybe...their Captain pay is LOWER and from my mates who went there things are generally crappier. The movement is FROM Cityflier TO Flybe I think you'll find. Each unto his own but from my own experience (I'm NOT stating this as a fact) the workforce at BE seems a lot more content than BACF. You just need to see beyond the propellers!!

Spot on!!

Moral seems poor at Cityflyer - I believe there are several skippers wanting to jump ship to a Q400 at EDI rather than continuous touring thru LCY.
Pay is crap and it still has 'CP the exocet' as the Chief Pilot

Well Maude Charlee, we did get out of the wrong side of bed didn't we? Instead of (attempting) to insult me, try re-reading what I said re the 195. You may have noticed that I added the caveat 'as I understand it'. As a new joiner with low hours, when a line training captain tells you on about day 3 that this is how it works, forgive me for assuming that he might have accurate information. I obviously damaged your oh so delicate sensibilities so for that I sincerely apologise and offer you a hanky to dry your eyes on.

Oh and if you'd bothered to also read my location you may have put 2 and 2 together and realised that, no, I am not in fact SOU based.

That is good news about seniority, much fairer than 'the tosh' that I was told. I can only assume that the person that told me must have misunderstood the integration of the BACON chaps into the seniority list after the merger?

Back on topic, good luck with your Flybe selection all that are going. First get the job, then love it.

PPJN says FOs start on 34k at Cityflier and a mere 24k at Flybe so someone is wrong.

Cadet entry pay at Cityflier is not 34,000....and it is that to which I was referring (which should have been obvious in the context of the thread).
