Could any UK based NJE pilots please confirm the tax arrangements? I was under the impression that zero tax was paid in Portugal and the ONLY tax paid was UK income tax and NI.

sum it up beautifully. As I've said a few times on this forum, this is the crux of the issue. It's not a difficult concept to grasp, it's actually very simple. Aircrew are leaving as...

Wholly predictable unfortunately, in fact I'm surprised it's taken this long. We left too early when 'the job' wasn't finished. Not that I ever want to go back mind, I've spent far too much time...

Any rumours on FRIs?

Has anyone heard any rumours on whether the FRIs for Flt Lt and Sqn Ldr pilots will be continued? I know the uptake of PAS this year and last wasn't exactly high; might this have an impact?

Yes but those 170 pilots were in the training system and the FRI is supposed to target experienced peeps approaching IPP.
