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?

Hi Guys, has anybody attended their screening day recently and has some intel to tell to those who havent been there yet? I got in touch with Smartlynx at the Pilot Expo in Berlin last friday - seems to be a quite legitimate and decent company.
Looking forward to any answers

I’m about to apply for the A320 type rating course (for which you need to have previously obtained all the required ratings on your own) starting next spring. Two options are presented:
-option1: 29900EUR with “high opportunity to join as FO”
-option2: 35000EUR for a “guaranteed job as an FO”
Is anybody in the selection process with this airline for the same position?
Anybody already working with them? How is the situation at the moment?
Please answer only if you have FIRST HAND experience.

I have a friend who was working with smarlynx, he was really happy, now he is waiting (he was layoff) for the call to start again, no date yet, so I will not pay 30k or 35k for a TR when there are pilots who worked there waiting to rejoin, also the tr last year was 20k, so keep that money in your pocket for now, and wait a little bit

Unfortunately it's commonly known, that some of these low cost, bottom feeder, airlines prefers taking onboard new low-time pilots, rather than holding onto their own, and make a profit off the new joiner paying for his type rating, while at the same time keeping the operating cost of down ((lower on the pay scale). So, as much as pay-2-fly is disgusting and sad in itself - and frowned upon in general - just don't be so surprise if the new joiner comes in before the pilots who were let go during Covid. Money first.
