I actually worked in Smartlynx a few years ago and I have friends still there so I suspect I am better informed about the situation there than you are. But you can take the information it or leave it, makes no difference to me.
Funny that all of this talk and you still not able to deny line training delay is 5 months and even then after you finish summer flying, in november they will say goodbye to you until next spring/summer. You knowing people in the company? So what? Me too knowing people, not difficult to do so. You knowing that past winter was no work for vast majority of pilots except something small in vietnam and very small jobs in europe? Why you not saying these facts? Also me i attend baa where many cadets gone to join smartlynx, late 2018 was first ones - still no line training or work yet is current news.

Unless you say they all lying and they are flying a lot and more of us should join because there is so much work? Please be serious and don't give misinformation to vulnerable students looking for first job. You have any idea the debt some people will go into to pay the 30,000EU type rating? to be sent month after month unlimited unpaid leave? Really is not correct for you to paint such false image about current situation, imagine someone is reading forum and deciding they will join because they have positive impression ... in the end they are drowning in debt with bank, again 4th month roster full month unpaid leave and no way to survive. Please be responsible.

Why don't you go back and read what I wrote before instead of ranting like an idiot. You don't seem to understand how ACMI charter companies work. They have more contracts in the summer than in the winter so that means less flying or even no flying at times in the winter. Equally Smartlynx did a lot of flying in 2018 so a lot of the aircraft were getting C checks in the winter. Like most other companies out there they are short of instructors so needless to say that causes delays with line training. When I joined them years ago I was waiting about 3 or 4 months after the type rating to get called for line training. With other people it took longer. I've had friends in other companies wait 6 months or more.
Make no mistake about it when you work for an airline you are there to serve the airline and not the other way around. It's not a flying school.
I don't really care if people join Smartlynx or not, it makes no difference to me.
If someone wants to work all the year on a 5/4 roster then they should go join Ryanair.
As for BAA cadets I'd imagine that they are bottom priority in getting online as they are joining the company with no previous experience
The fact is the company is growing each year and they have a high turnover of pilots. Also the summer season is starting They are short of pilots and need more.
Deal with it.

You calling to someone on internet idiot? Interesting, what a good personal standard you keep for yourself ...

I have nothing more to say to you about the subject, you are beneath my level for a discussion, no wonder you struggled so bad at start you had to join such airline, obviously you failed everywhere else so had to go there as last choice, it's ok, but in that case is not me who is the idiot lol

Anyone in the company (or having current information) and can tell what would be situation in Autumn 2019 and Winter 2020. They have type rating courses in October and November 2019 however what I read from above and willing to know whether starting line training would be possible before spring 2020 in case of contract offer after TR. How about yearly flying hours, is it too bad as it is stated above regarding to Winter months?
