Alexander, you're absolutely right!

But as already stated by someone in here, some are employed right know and we just are trying to check if it is worth it to spend time for the selection...
That most infos are rumours should be beyond question..

A scheme for TR funding, similar to the TRSS scheme which finished up 5 years ago might be considered depending on the rest of the package.

I will not be paying hard cash up front for a TR.

However, if this is the road easy decides to go down, I'm sure I will derive useful experience from the assessment center and possible sim assessment with the hope of perhaps a future BA, MON, Aer Lingus, Cargolux, DHL, Jet2, Fly Dubai, Qatar, Cathay, Dragonair etc etc assessment.

4000 > 20T TP, 1600 Command.

To answer previous questions, I wouldn't expect much recruitment into European bases directly as most of them have a waiting list at the moment.

However, depending on your contract, you can usually go on the waiting list after 6 months and then it is based on first come first serve.

McMax, due to new European laws, you will have to pay Social Security in the country of your base. Tax is then dependant on where you are "ordinarily resident".

If you were to have a German contract, I believe it is a contractual requirement to become resident there and thus would have to pay all taxes there anyway.

Anyone know what the sim instructors will be looking for from the non TR'd guys?

I'm not talking specifics (like take off from 13 at Edinburgh followed by engine failure at V1 etc), I'm thinking more of:

- general high level of ability (instrument scan etc)
- response to instruction given
- knowledge of A320- or as much as can be expected from someone who doesn't have an A320 TR.

Oh... in case you haven't guessed, it's a DTC for me too. 3500h, mostly light and med TP. LHS and RHS.

From speaking to colleagues who have passed stage 1 of the selection, it seems to be the case that most (none infact) have the price of a TR in their bank accounts. Here's hoping for a bond, because anything else will have many heading back to their current employer.

very good point! 95/100 of my colleagues who are DTC do not have the cash sitting in their bank accounts either. Running to get a new loan on top of the existing one, mmm? Easyjet better comes out with all info before the surprise that their candidates don t have the cash upfront. But hey, maybe still enough people?

When EZY stated at the outset:

Please only apply if you have the following minimum requirements:

With one of those requirements being:

Willing to self-sponsor type rating.

I think they made it perfectly clear what the arrangement is. Now whether that takes the form of a monthly deduction from salary or full payment in advance is not yet known, but you will be paying for your own rating.

It's a SST not a bond, so you need to pay the cash upfront before stating the training.

Could SST take the form of a salary deduction? That's still, in essence, a form of self-sponsorship.

I think that with that phraseology, it's pretty unambiguous about what the requirement will be.

"here's a job offer, now give us 25K for your rating".

It's not going to be for everyone.

Whilst willing to sponsor, the T&Cs will have to be right to accept a position, if offered.

So, Willing (yes), Able (yes), Going to (thats all depends)

You never know and I would suggest not putting this opportunity down before you know facts.

On a internal side of things, easy is currently looking for cabin crew who are already qualified (which we have quite a few) and will offer them a flying job and a part sponsored TR.
Think it will set the CCers back by 6k only, so you really never know what they will come up with.

Can't see this happening myself.

Why would any self respecting CCM pay 6K to be demoted into the RHS, presumably with a pay cut

Not where I work (not EZ!). The SCCM has more to say than the PIC , that is why we are leaving

Sorry for the thread drift

Best of luck to all those going for Easy (not me)
