The number of cadets was not evenly split last year. I think there's a propensity for the FTOs to say there is an even split to make them appear equal in the eyes of applicants. Remember this is BA's...

Forget this £25k figure.

First year salary around £34k (composed of salary+flight pay). Security bond of 12k also paid back. This takes care of the principal of the loan (84k). Accrued interest...

momo95,

The 12k a year over 7 years is the repayment of the flight training costs (security bond) - this is over and above the basic salary and flight pay. There is no reason this should be beyond...

momo95,

If you read the website you'll find the starting salary to be £22k+flight pay of around 12k, which is favourably taxed. The base salary increases every year for the first 6 years by...

I agree Mayday. Just goes to show politicians really are as incompetent as many give them credit for. If any other professional made such errors there would be severe consequences. Eg. a crew...

Always baffles me the support shown to Ryanair on this forum. They have been profiting from dubious employment practices for such a long time, destroying conditions for pilots across the EU, yet...

Hardly recent developments Phensocks. And the loss of both are more justifiable than the prevalence of pathetic zero hour contracts that the likes of easyJet and FR employ.

Why would they do that when they have no interest in actually employing cadets? They have been using flexicrew with the cheap, zero hour contractors that come with for years now.

Artie Fufkin,

I'm pretty sure it's accepted fact that the only shortage is only and will only ever be for experienced pilots. Hence your mates in China. It's not something that will have much of...

If that's what you have understood from the comments then it shows either a lack of comprehension skills or severe naivety.

Great advice. I second everything you have said as someone in a similar position. Very similar story to mine. When I was 15/16 my impatience was such that, despite always achieving in education, I...

You're wrong. I don't know on what basis you can make this comment? Completely unfounded.

OAA charged £200 last year as well. I very much doubt their admin costs have risen 25% in a year.

Considering the training takes roughly 15 months and that courses were staggered throughout the year - some having not started yet, not a single FPP has finished training yet.

Yet the only reason Ryanair can afford to offer such low prices is because of the dubious working practices its pseudo-employees are under. It's a zero sum game.

That picture has 28 people in. That is far from everyone who is training through Oxford for the FPP. Infact, there is an FPP course from last year's batch yet to begin at OAA.

I would disagree. Assuming one doesn't have the £84k for the FPP, they would be taking a loan and probably paying back around £120k. BA return the £84k over your employment, so you would end up...
