Eastern want 1000H "experienced FOs".

BA HR email gone out too re situation & how crews might help.

I'll save the cash by keeping the ME IR going.

Maybe Independence will help 😇: staying within EASA contrary to UK Gov. announcement re UK leaving EASA.

Unless "continent" is more competitive than UK right now?
Iím unsure what you mean by Ďínot here in Scotlandí if you have never had a type rating on your EASA issued licence, you will need it end of story. Airlines are pulling offers to people who donít have it done by a certain date. Flybe themselves told me they wouldnít issue a type rating start date for me until I provided them with the certificate. Itís an EASA/CAA mandated rule and wonít change.

When the UK CAA leaves EASA I donít see them reverting back to not requiring it as that would make their standards lower than EASA.

Hi. I meant that the hiring situation up here is not good for the forseeable future - according to the Loganair HR email a fortnight ago. They are focussing on ATR rated crews and now the Flybe hotline.

The market is not competitive here unless you are already Type Rated. And just to add fun to it all we’ve an election due by 6th May 2021 which if the SNP wins will for sure (understandably) result in push for IndyRef2.

It is part and parcel of FTE JEREZ (f)ATPL / MPL (dormant) courses on their T67 / ROBIN, and has been for a number of years.
You don’t have to have been a “fast jet skygod” to deliver this part of the syllabus. Although given the degrading (aka watering down) of majority of training since CAP509, it would be true to say ex A2 instructors will be in the majority of competent FIs able to deliver it.

Shouldn't all the ATO's which are ATPL (integrated) providers, include advanced UPRT on their syllabus by default? It seems to be dictated on Regulation (EU) 2018/1974 Appendix 3, Section A...
