I completely agree the MPLs are painfully expensive. Personally, I think that over the last 15 years cadets have set their stall that they are willing to pay over the odds to get into the RHS of an...

Tagged schemes at CAE & L3 are expensive, but they come with job offers. Youíre still paying for your initial licence, and perhaps a type rating. But, you have a guaranteed job afterwards. Definitely...

Towards the end of my time there, it seemed the accountants and corporate bods had full control of the place. The intakes kept rolling in, with courses constantly becoming bigger. It was a case of...

You may be right. It appears on the other thread that flyBe are knocking back newly-qualified pilots, which I never thought would happen. With Ryanairís doors closed, it seems thereís not much out...

I heard rumours that flyBMI needed to fill an ERJ145 to make any profit from CDG, as Parisí fees were extortionate. The only reason they kept the route going (normally at a loss) was because of the...

Given a lot of the TC bases were also TUI and Jet2 bases, Iím guessing those two will snap a lot of pilots up. Not the same rating, but still narrow body experience.

Youíd have thought that...

Sadly, that Alex Macheras kid accurately posted info on flyBMIís closure, well before any of us employees actually knew. We all hoped he was some kid with a website for his GCSE media coursework, but...

On one hand, I do think that the HR industry has indeed got much more involved in the pilot assessment process than it needs to be. Part of this I think is to justify HRís existence itself, which is...

It could have been something as simple as the KLM plane in question having no serviceable APU, and MMEís Air Starter Unit (ASU) being inoperative.

Must have been a slow news day.

I would say crew. They cancelled the GLA-BHX and return on Thursday, citing crew shortages as the reason. Loganair stepped in with an Embraer to cover it. I know that first hand, but I have friends...

I would say Bergenís a definite, but the second eludes me. I know that originally Oslo was planned from NCL along with Bergen. However, Loganair pulling the ABZ-OSL route due to poor passenger...

I saw the early J41 from ABZ-NCL had a technical issue in ABZ and departed an hour late, which allowed the Loganair jet to get the jump. Iím guessing the plane in question (MAJZ) limped back to NCL...

Sadly, I can't imagine Loganair being in the market for more bases. Especially English ones. As perfect as MME would be for me, I can't see it happening. I would have thought the best chance for a...

I would say getting through the training is the easy part. In my experience, even those of below average ability can eventually limp over the line and get their fATPL. I would put the odds of getting...
