Opportunity for former FlyBe Pilots?

Hi all,

Hope this is the most appropriate forum, and hasn't already been covered....

I subscribe to the UKGA mailing list, and have just been emailed their most recent one.

The was some news on there regarding a UK ATO offering sponsored FI opportunities or B737 sim time for former Flybe Pilots. Thought I'd share in case it's of use to anyone. I'm not affiliated with the ATO concerned - I just want to share the news.

Also, in case it breaks PPRuNe advertising rules etc, I'm not going to post a link. A quick google of some of the info above should yield results.

All the best for the next few months...!

Sadly, even an illustrious career at NASA won’t get anyone a job at the moment.

The planet is closed.

Loganair have a dedicated hotline for former Flybe crew (I am not one).

Just be ready to vote “Yes” to help us become independent of Westminster, please if you do move up to the Heilans’.

Don't think the hotline was open for long. The last thing Loganair need now is more crew!

Sadly, I think you’re right. The public announcements by the Loganair CEO about flyBe recruitment were done quite early doors, when bookings were only around 10% down, and the excitement of all the new flyBe routes was still buzzing in the air. Like most of us, we never expected the effect of the virus to get exponentially worse.

Now bookings are probably 90% down, with half of their fleet still active (doing lifeline Highland and Island stuff, probably with single figure loads), and half of the workforce on furlough. Not to mention the CEO publicly saying that they’ll need government aid to survive.

What their plans are come June when things should be on the mend are anyone’s guess. But I can only assume Loganair will have a big excess of crew for quite a while to come.
