Guys everything was told in this topic. Please do not come back here after 6 months and start to whine. Especially for pilots with hours since there is so much opportunity out there. Market is not like 12 months earlier anymore.

For colleagues without rating, even for you so many opportunities for low hour non-type rated pilots. It does not worth to pay 30-35k for their ATO. What will you get in return 1500k gross salary after line training only summer season.

Maximum 6 month of flying during summer season. Winter 80% of pilots in unpaid leave at their home unless you want to risk your life, health and licence in Nigeria in winter.

Nobody is whining, they are just asking questions and I try to answer. That's all.

New terms of 2023 contract for pilots in SLX. In short words: for CP around 10000€ less. Good luck with that

If you want to join this company you will accept worst Captain and FO salary in European market. On top of that unstable life, disrespectful management and operations in Nigeria. It is for desperate people.

Info from many insiders. FO’s, as well will get less money than previous year, based on around 500-600h per year.
Above all of that minimum 3 months of unpaid leave that can be extended if you don’t accept to go to Nigeria or other lovely place they send you. All those projects are with accommodation in low standard hotel, without full board food provided in countries like Nigeria or India.

I have been contacted to stsart the type rating, I want to make sure that after the type they really offer a position in the company.
Do you know if there is a real chance of joining them, or they just make the type rating?

Yes I just did the TR. It's not guaranteed 100% of course and it will never be written anywhere but yes they are recruiting. We were 12, we are all in.

People will leave as soon as they have 500h otherwise is a nonsense, odds are you'll have a job.

I have MCC issued in non EASA ATO, does it matter or I need to go for it in EASA ATO?

Also, is there someone who recently passed assesment (simulator, ATPL, psycho) that would share infos
Thats exactly the desperation and "meat" dumblynx is looking for...

video surfing around of SLX CEO talking shit about his customers and employees. Do you really wanna join this company? They lost their deal with condor for the 330 because of the quality of service they were providing Let aviasolution dogs go bankrupt

Hey everyone,

Any people who applied for smartlynx's TR course ? How long does it take from the moment you are applying until the moment they are calling you ?
I applied 10 days ago...
Thanks in advance
