Have you no friends back home?

The whole of the country seems as if the oxygen has been taken out of the air.

Yes the T&C's have changed....where haven't they?

LS vs junior RS with ALT......now that one should be a no brainer. I know all this sounds discouraging but if DUB is the place you want to be then fill your boots ( and pray you can pass the evaluation!)

As you might or might not know, the top 10% or so (pilots) have been given a 'package', granted not as good as the one Willie Walsh set up for Barney and the lads on the 5th floor way back when, but never the less, not too bad, ESP if you're not even 50 yrs old.

At the end of the day it all depends where you or your wife or your children want to grow up and call home.

It's a balancing scale.....ALWAYS has been......Good Luck.

Ps now if you were to ask the lads that went to ANC way back in 1995 were they would rather be now, I know what most of them would say!

The t&cs depend on where you are based. Are you prepared to be based in Belfast or Gatwick for up to 5 years bears before getting a chance at Dublin/Cork? Thats a good question for the interview!

Yep, afraid you'll have to print off and use that old fashioned tool; a pen.
Best handwriting now!

I hope they have got LOTS of printer paper in stock... to coin a phrase it will be... "INCOMING"!!!

Looking at the other threads most operators seem to be averaging 1000-1500 applications at initial stage.... Good luck to us all

I'm not even sure if I should apply for this.

I'm a yr away from a command with another irish airline, and while I live in near LGW (and am currently based abroad) - i don't know if I can see an upgrade anywhere in the near future at all with these guys.

My aim eventually is to move to the US with the american wife i have as excess baggage, and can't see this move helping.

Perhaps, I'll apply just for the experience?

Does anyone have any information regarding earnings potential as a DE FO? I see the old ROI figures on PPJN, just wondering if anyone has any info on UK bases?

Thanks

Not everything is as black and white outside your world fella. I had literally 2 minutes before I had to go to work, couldn't find it so asked for a link so I could look at it on my phone later. You could have posted the link instead of this.

Thanks to Flying Beancounter for the PM & st patrick for the link.

This is good news for aviation - this is a fabulous opportunity for the numerous high quality turboprop/ex-mil pilots looking for a proper entrance into jet aviation. Best of luck to one and all.

yeah good luck with that! Ex-mil are seen like smoke in the eyes on today days, especially up-North! There are a lot of snadpit-er with good TR and lots of commercial flight time looking to finally leave the desert for greener pasture! ...
