FO vs SFO contract

Hi I was wondering whether anyone at Easy could help with a query.
I'm looking for more info on the criteria for qualifying for an SFO contract vs FO contract, I understand that it depends on factored easyJet hours, but has anyone come across number of landings being part of the criteria?? Thanks

Again, totally country dependant. There are country where it is not even possible to join as SFO, countries where you need 2500 hours factorized and others where you need maybe 2000.

So for a UK SFO contract is it 2500 factored hours?

Thanks

For UK contracts:

SFO- >2500 factored hours and full ATPL

(0.8 x your total hours for short haul jet FO)
(0.9x your total hours for short jet CPT)

(0.6x your total hours for long haul FO)
(0.7 x total hours for long haul CPT)

(0.7 x your total hours for Airline turbine FO)
(0.8 x your total hours for airline turbine CPT)

FO- >1250 factored hours

Upgrade to FO after a minimum of 24 months operating as FO.

No mention of number of landings in the calculation just whether you were P1 or P2. Hope that answers your question.

Have you got an official source for these figures? I can't seem to find it.
Thanks in advance

Hi to everybody ,

How long did you wait to get a final result after the sim assessment for NTR SFO UK contract?

At this moment +/- 5 weeks have gone and no news

Thanks

Forks one is indeed correct. Those figures are written in internal company manuals, that is what we use. I'm sure they're written down somewhere else as well, but they are accurate.

Thank you CMB. I presume one with above criteria would join directly as SFO then? I had heard (a while back I admit), that a SFO was a time based promotion.

Guys, finished the online tests and application back on the 23rd July, just wondering if anyone else reading this has applied/waited this long/longer to hear back about going to the next phase or not?
Tapping my fingers over here.

Thanks Fox and Count for the info...much appreciated!

That's odd. Factored hours is definitely the only criteria? In that case have you ever heard of anyone being told they don't have sufficient landings, despite meeting the minimum factored hours, for a SFO contract?

Thanks

Vwon - the slight problem you are up against here is that it can take some time to appear before a real live pilot who can make a sensible decision. Due to the sheer number of applications (thousands I am told), they use a fancy matrix and that does not always fit each case accurately. As we all know, individual aviation backgrounds can be wide and varied and it is often only a fellow pilot who can apply the necessary judgement and discretion in assessing what each individual's background means in a practical sense. There is no one being ill-intended here, but there can be some frustrations dealing with pilot recruitment. We are all the most important person in our own world and that is quite natural! When you are one of thousands of applicants you are unfortunately not the most important person in the recruiters' world! Anyway, usually it all sorts itself out in the end.

Hi all. I'm wanting to apply for DEC but am slightly short of the 1000 hours over 30T. Do I apply and say I have 1000 hours over 30T because by the time the potential start date is given and notice period etc, I will have the hours. Or is it better just to wait until I have the hours and then apply. Thanks

You wait. The very first thing they do when you arrive at their test centre is show them your logbook and licence. I can't imagine the look on their face if you didn't have the minimum hours.

So I imagine they don't give you a choice at all? Take it or leave it?

Give you a choice? You apply for a specific base- person above obviously applied for PMI- he just doesn't know the T&C's exactly so is hoping for a heads up before the contract actually arrives (I'm guessing).

Did you get an offer as Captain or F/O?

Hello dear aviators!

I applied for a NTR FO Portugal position and passed the online assessment the 3rd of July.
My application has then been under review.

The 10th of August I received a message on my applicant's portal :"We have sent you an email, please check your inbox".
I didn't receive anything on my inbox one week later.

Is that a bug or a normal automatic timeline?
Is anybody in the same situation?
Would you send an email to the pilot recruitment team?

Thanks for advice.
