Type Rating Funding

Hello,

It says on the site that the type rating will be arranged by wizzair. Does anyone know if this is partially funded by the cadet?

Thanks

Hi.

Quick question - I applied a couple of days ago, but never received the 'automated email' confirming my application. I can log on to my profile, but the email never got to me. Has anyone experienced a similar situation? (And please don't tell me to check my junk mail folder, been doing that about 20 times a day for the last 3 days )

Cheers, and good luck.

If You are using e-mail client (e.g. Outlook), the junk e-mail might have been blocked by Your e-mail domain. Check e-mail "manually" (e.g. for gmail, check it via google website instead of via Outlook). I had this issue once applying for Aer Lingus programme. If it is not the case, then I suggest to contact Wizz - the reply message is containing Your application ID, which may be useful in further process.

AXL76FG QUOTE I believe if they want only Rumenian candidate, they should put as minimum requirement the Rumanian Language and not the passport!.....
Just 99.9% Romanian passport holders speaks Romanian... no need even to mention it,common sense.
Emilian, first, sorry for my sarcasm, learn how to quote in PPRuNe, it takes 20 seconds. to see how to do it!
Second Remember that in the requirement specially in the Aviation field there isn't common sense and finally to be ironic with you, if one day you'll Achieve your dream to become an airline pilot, you'll discover That we have SOP and common sense is not a real matter!

And what reported from RWY37 and wrote from the Wizz HRD is just a confirmation of that!

Good Luck

Bucharest Open Recruitment Day

I attended the Open Day in Bucharest and they said that they are looking indeed for Romanian pilots for their Romanian bases but all other nationalities are being considered for the other bases. They also said that they will need a lot of pilots in the coming years due to their expansion but only mentioned Craiova, in Romania as a possible new base. They lowered their requirements so inexperienced pilots with A320 rating are considered as Type Rated First Officers! There have been mostly Italian low houred pilots present, with or without A320 rating and maybe Line Training. Few Romanian candidates (20 out of 300) some low houred but also experienced pilots from TAROM and Carpatair. Those who meet all the requirements (hours, valid ratings, MCC, JOC) are being considered for interviews. They only screened people to see if they meet the requirements. Results will come in about 2 weeks. Not everyone will get invited. They are also looking for your background: any flying or non-flying aviation experience, University Degree, etc.

Good luck to all of you!

As far as I know from very reliable information and someone who was there can confirm the following:

There were a lot of people, maybe over 200 approx. and just few Romanians, like 10 people max, 3 of them , pilot girls already with some hours and currently flying with a local operator.

The rest of people, from north europe, Scandinavian specially, Germany and Italians and some minor presence from Portugal, France and other nations.

Some people rated on A320, some with hours,others in other JAR25 aircraft, some other in turboprop and so on, and others just only aeroclub experience.

Most of the people doesn't met the requirements, like no JOC, or type rating expiring soon, some others with a ELP level 3, some other less than 200 hours on airplane and the list continue......

The guys who met the requirements left the Wizz application form and were signed by name and experience on their personal computers while others whose told to get the minimum requirements then to update their position contacting wizz staff and to specify that they were on the open days.

All people attending the open days have the priority over others at home trying to send they resume.
And of course there are some cadet entry pilot....already cabin crew in wizz as well.

They will principally looking for Romanian base as they will had Craiova base, but in the near future they will need huge pilot in all other bases.

Salary is funny but is the only reality here in Europe that gives you experience and TR with no advance cash...ROFL

They are going to answer to all the people either negative or positive, and who find himself selected, will attend a 2 day interview in Budaphest (1 day HR and technical interview and other day SIM profile)

Hope this help..

Almost everything correct. There have been 300 people actually and all of the people around me seemed to be Italians with or without Type Rating and maybe Line Training. There have been more Romanians (around 20), some of them low houred. I was surprised that so many didnīt meet the requirements although they are written clearly on their website. Itīs obvious they want Romanian pilots for their Romanian bases since right now they have less than 10% from Romania in the respective bases and the flow is quite high. But they mentioned that all other nationals are being considered for other bases.

As to the number of people present on the day, I counted 10 rows of chairs with 10 chairs in each row, this said, there was I guess just as many standing around the edges as the number of people seated. So at least 200.

Since the room was filled beyond capacity, (fire drill max 190), th session was repeated at 14:00. with what seem to me just about the same amount of people..

My best guess therefore is +400!!!, feel free to comment on this..

Everything is quite correct... There where around 400 people but 40% didn't meet minimum requirments and someone applied the same even not having 200 hours on the aircraft or jet orientation course. We wait and see what will happen

I think only to the people that they have been in Bucharest. Because they were collecting the information on the data sheets.

Bucharest Open Recruitment Day

About the number of candidates present, indeed there have been nearly 200 in the room (100 seated + 70-80 standing). My guess! But there have been much less people present at the second presentation (around 50 seated). They do not select according to passport, but they want locals provided the very low number of local pilots in Romania and the opening of a new base next summer. Those who had the requirements will be answered in about 2 weeks, positive or negative. Those who didn't have will have to wait longer. Anyway they said loud and clear that they lowered the requirements so they could consider more candidates provided their need for pilots in the coming years. So heads up!
