My interview wasn't too long ago but was expecting a quick turn around with how quickly I got the email saying I was successful. Just a shame things have slowed up due to the E-Jets leaving the fleet. Hopefully we both get a start date soon

I applied about a fortnight ago as a direct entry, but no reply as of yet.

I emailed the HR contact before then with a few minor queries, and they replied within an hour or so. Some of their people are really on the ball.

When my old airline went bust, I did some dealings with Flybe. They genuinely did their best to help us out, and they offered interviews within a couple of days of applying. Sadly, Flybe offered interview dates that were just too late, and most of the unemployed pilots had offers from other airlines well before then. It was a shame, because they’d have cashed in on plenty of crew for all of their UK bases. Still, I have full confidence they’ll get to everyone at some point.

As an assumption, I think they will have got a lot of applications from newly-qualified pilots over the last week or so. With Ryanair closing it’s doors and all that. It could be the case that they’re getting enough applications to be quite picky.

Rottweiler is correct that one of the courses is pretty full due to transferring existing crews to the props. It looks like course numbers and dates are fluid with Flybe trying to keep the hold pool small and get people started as soon as they possibly can
Hi mate im in the same position as you. Have you heard anything from them about a possible start?

Hey,

I was wondering if anyone in the Flybe hold pool had been provided with an update to potential start dates? Also does anyone know roughly how many people are in the holdpool currently.

Smile hold pool flybe

Hello,

I'm also currently swimming in the flybe holding pool, no idea on how many people there are in the pool but I think they have slowed down their recruitment.
Let's hope we hear something soon!

Hello all,

I've seen today that Flybe reopen the assessments for Dash F/O's.
I'm in the hold pool since June and no more infos up today. If anybody hear something or get a TR course start date please keep us aware!

I understand courses will be new year now. Hopefully January/February. Flybe have no issue with you getting in touch for an update on where course start dates are up to or any other questions you have prior to starting.

I'd recommend if you haven't heard anything since June to get in touch for an update

Good Evening

I was wondering what peoples' experiences were with how long it took to get from application to interview/assessment and then a job offer.

Any insight would be useful.

Thanks

Flybe

Hey,

From putting in my application it took a couple of months to get a interview. I found I was successful the day after the assessment day and have been in the Flybe hold pool since then.

Hope this information helps.

Good luck with your application.

I applied over a month ago with everything asked for and still haven’t heard anything, expecting a pfo email anytime now. What all airlines are looking for is a mystery, not just Flybe...

If anyone has been given a start date for a TR course recently I’d be interested to know. Passed the assessment in July and haven’t gotten a date yet.
