Zero,

That link takes me to the BACF home page, and there's only one vacancy listed, non-flying.

Any ideas?

Safe flights,
Zero

A valid UK or JAA ATPL(A) (Frozen for FO positions);
A valid Instrument Rating;
Performance Class A;
MCC Certificate (or be MCC Exempt);
A valid Class One Medical;
The legal right to live and work in the UK; and,
The ability to gain a satisfactory Criminal Records Check to hold an airside security pass
How does one have performance class A? Does it mean have knowledge of perf A, have additional courses in perf A or a type rating on a perf A operated aircraft?

Edit: anyone knows if it's commutable?

Type rating on the E jet an advantage!!

Hmm, I wonder which regional uk E jet operator has lots of fed up crews looking for better t&c???

Just checked the link... looking on the flight website I can not see any jobs advertised for BA Cityflyer.
Maybe it was posted in error i.e. too early.........

RJ.

Update..... I have been in touch with the powers at the Towers and I'd keep a close eye on the BA Cityflyer Jobs website. Numbers required will fill a few new shinny Embraer jets when options taken.

There was an advert in Flight which was posted today at around 11:59 AM.

Now it's no longer there. May be they removed the advertisement.

Lets hope that it comes up again shortly.

Cheers,
Zero

I saw it

Hey zero, I saw the ad too but no mention of it on their website and like others are saying the link just took you back to Flight Global's main jobs page. Hopefully they will open it properly soon.

Perf A

bfisk - pre-JAR ATPLs, Perf A was a separate exam in addition to the national ATPL theory exams. JAR Performance covers all the old Perf A stuff.

PPJN Data

PPJN gives Capt starting salary as 57k but is unclear if that data is from Mar 2010 or Oct 2008.

Can anyone verify ?

That was the pay data after our last pay deal in 2008. Up until this week they were the scales we were using.

We have just agreed (this week) to a 2% pay deal that will be back dated until July 1st 2010. So add 2% onto those scales and you'll get our new scales.

We also took a pay freeze in July 2009 until July 2010 on our yearly increment . So basically we did not move up the scales for a year.

Pay is Poor, Moral is at an all time low...... shall I go on?

That pay is nothing short of diabolical! The UK ejet operator won't be losing anyone at that rate, only a smidgen more than they are paying their turbo drivers!

Moral is at an all time low
Would that be anything to do with the management by any chance??

I stand ready to be corrected but I think BA Cityflyer are the worst paying E-jet operator in the world.

Anyone with an E-jet rating who is out of work might well be interested but I do not think the FlyBe guys will be beating the door down.

They are also the lowest paying airline in London.

I've been told that the folk flying their E-jets into LCY with Lufty paint on the tail are paid about twice as much as the mugs at City Flyer. Is that correct?

Couple of general questions:

What kind of trips, all day trips or any overnights?

Is LCY a senior base? How long to get in there?

Have they taken DEC without type rating before, assuming current and experienced on similar size JAR25 ac?

What's the schedule like for a new hire?

As for worst paying E-Jet operator in the world, I think you'll find that honor belongs on the other side of the pond...
