Any recruitment likely at Easy?

The 150 hours I quoted is related to the self-sponsored ex-BMI cadets who have come to us following 150 hours line training at BMI. I cannot give you specific 'chapter and verse' on the company recruitment policy right now as, in all honesty, it varies day to day. Nonetheless, it is undoubtedly true that there are several pilots with around 350 hours TT and 150 hours on the Airbus being employed through Parc by easyJet. I hope that clarifies the situation.

All it clarifies is that EZY does in reality support the P2F concept by using the BMI P2F scheme as an entry stream. The very scheme that started its ugly life at EZY.

How very disappointing

Apart from the BMI P2F guys didn't get paid?
So not really the same thing.

Has easyJet decided on how many 737 contract captains will be required for next year - I have not heard anything for weeks and am trying to work out if this means "thanks, but no thanks" or whether no decision has been taken yet...........

Watch this space!

They are getting towards the bottom of the command waiting list and are VERY short of suitable people to promote.

I suspect a solution will be to move people off the 73 and early onto the Bus.

Angel That'll be popular then....

I will refrain from commenting on the above speculation, but will draw your attention to the previous few pages of vitriol.

It's a hot topic

126 command planned over next 12 months i believe (from internal memo) with just under 200 awaiting a command and many more with the hours waiting to join the list/jump through the hoops. I wouldn't go popping the champagne cork just yet....but you never know what will happen at easy!!

Logically, i cannot see any need for DEC though for a while.

737 Contract Captains

Well, after all the comings and goings, did eJ take on any NG captains via CTC this winter?

No. All bases but remember cadets (Most) are NOT employed by EJ.

You are all reaping what you sowed and by agreeing to every degrading terms, are owed everything that you get.

Sorry, but fact.

And you are encouraging the situation by sitting there and doing nothing. What are the cadets supposed to do? If they turn the "offer" down, another one will jump in his/her shoes. Instead it should be current Captains (and FO's) pulling their finger out and join TOGETHER with the cadets to try and improve the terms by taking action.

Making sarcy comments on prune helps no-one.

Very soon you will be reaping what you haven't sown.

Fact.

I haven't every paid for a TR and I don't fly for a bunch of thieves.

Everyone should take a stand, because it puts mud on everyone's shoes. But in answer to your question, no, you shouldn't take it and I have done my bit by not working for them. Let the other mug take it and work your way up the hard way. Why should you go straight from OAT / CTC to an Airbus?
A few years old school will do you all good and give the 3000 hr pilots a career too.

It's called BALPA and many cadets can't join easyJet's Balpa because they are not employed by easyJet.

Lots of us pay our subs each month to try and help protect you the new joiner so wind your neck in.

This divide and conquer bo**ocks was all in the Roland Berger report from 2007 with many senior pilots advising FO's and SFO to dust off their CV's. This is now happening with the up-turn in airline recruitment hence the influx of cadets to cover the movement of FO's/SFO's and command upgrades.

Talk about dilution of experience!

I recently flew with our head of Balpa and proof read their presentation they are shortly to give the company. To say that they are worried about these cadet issues would be an understatement.
