2k after all the training repayments as well? That's pretty good, ngl. Was expecting far worse since the repayment period is only like 5 years.

You are about to work for Wizz Air not some random small airline. Low cost airline doesnt always mean 'low cost' salary.

Didn't mean to suggest their salaries are bad by any means, just meant to say that paying off so much debt in 5 years and still being left with 2k net is really good. You'll be hard pressed to find better deals for integrated training anywhere in the world, without having it fully sponsored like aer lingus (or forking out the money yourself to begin with).

You need to remember, that if after all those taxes and deductions salary wouldn't be worth all that work you just put into having your ATPL and TR, then nobody would probably think about WAPA. They need pilots a lot especially bound for 5 years at least.

Well... you can still have your ATPL from any other school and then apply as non TR cadet.

latest pilot jobs sucked for me to be honest. Skytest is a great tool but it focus more on overall preparation rather than math preparation. For going straight for maths I'd rather go with some apps like Lumosity or Peak or platforms like Brilliant. You can also try MathTrainer for simple calculations.

Look. Go Through that topic and see how many ppl are telling that skytest is great for this. Skytest was also mentioned by Captain Joe on his video about preparation for the assessment.

In my opinion skytest is way better because:
1. you pay one price which is somewhere around of yearly fee for lpj. And have it for ever. So you can stick to this improving your skills over years at your free time.
2. many confirm that these are the closest to vienna test system - which - to have an access you need to be a psychologist, and what is used by most of airlines at their assessements. You can't just buy it. I've been doing Vienna Test few times - if you're from Warsaw then look for Malgorzata Chelis who is aviation psychologist - she has vienna test system then you can also compare it to skytest. It is really close to what you have in VTS. + skytest released lately vienna preparation system so I bet it has even better stuff for VTS to train.
3. it also has great tools to train for COMPASS test (eye-hand coordination, attention test and so on)

What is also worth to mention is that i had pilot jobs subscription somewhere in the middle so I didn't have an access for all of these so maybe if you're shitting gold nuggets then you will be able to afford that. But for me it is also way better economically to get skytest.

Hello guys,
I just discovered this forum. I applied for wiz air pilot programe in Hungary. After two days I got invitation for screening and options are in february or march. Since my passport is non eu (I am from Serbia) I asked yhem should I apply at all or not, they responded since Belgrade is their base I can apply. For sure they are helping getting study long term EU visa.

if we are talking about wapa and preparation for compass - lpj is much closer to what you gonna face during the assessment. Skytest is far more complicated. Had both of them, and my choice is lpj. But it's never a bad idea to get both

Well - you will not get exact software that is being used by Wizz Air at their assesements. So why not to train your skills in more complex software like skytest? I think that at the beginning of flight pilot career there are so many things that need a lot of money to be put into, so I dont think that getting them both is an option for most.

Sure, it's up to you what to choose, i'm only saying my thoughts about all that. And tbh, yes, you gonna spend a lot of money, but 70 eur will not make any difference in the end of the day

Sorry for Hijacking the thread! Anyone from the UK/Ireland apply for this? (Since it痴 now apparently available to all EU residents)

Currently a Flight Planner with a European Airline , and I知 about to start down the Modular route at a pretty quick pace! But this Wizz Air route looks Like an amazing opportunity to potentially have a job lined up.👌

You need to find an AeMC not AME, as only AeMC is allowed to do initial Class 1.
I know in Hungary there is one in Budapest: reporvos.hu
But you can find list of ones in other countries, on the relevant aviation authority websites.

look into Bucharest. I've done mine in Vilnus, a good choice too. Both of them are quite easy to get an appointment. There's is no queue in Vilnus and as far as i know you don't even need an appointment in Bucharest

Assessments is held in 3 consecutive days, so 4-5-days stay is enough
