Are FO's allowed to opt in to the bond payment scheme? I thought it was for Captains only.

Its not a bond. Its a loan from the company - you pay £22k either way, whether it's up front, or spread over three years, it makes little difference. I thought FOs did get access to it, but if you don't, you're not missing out on much. (It's way worse than the Norwegian 787 bond, which ironically gets much more bad comments).

Actually there is a bond - £10,000 .... on TOP of the £22,000!!

Have any NTR FOs received start dates recently?

If you've got any questions count, feel free to PM me. Needless to say, it's one hell of a lot better than it used to be.
why is the pay so low? Jetblue gets more than double that and Southwest, triple. You guys need ALPA.

First of all, Portugal is one of the poorest Western European countries where the cost of living is extremely low, wages are low and taxes are high. Netting 90k in Portugal....you’ll live extremely well in the country or downtown of the capital city. Better than a Jetblue pilot would live in downtown Manhattan. Plus it’s a beautiful, warm country. I’ve never worked for easyJet, and I have nothing to do with Portugal so I don’t feel like I’m being biased.

You also need to remember that it’s not so much that European pilots are paid poorly, it’s more a case of US pilots are paid very well. You can trust us on this, because a lot of us have researched jobs abroad and with the exception of China, any airline that offers more pay is usually in a country where it’s very expensive to live or there’s a big catch.

To give some perspective, youíd do well to net £75k in the U.K. Thatís full time with 10% loyalty. When you compare the cost of living U.K. vs Portugal and quality of life, Iíd say the Portuguese contract is far better than is given credit for.
Iíve just spent 6 months in Porto and what a fantastic place it is. I will miss it for sure. Just a different vibe than Luton...

i dont disagree, I will post a fact. If you take all the airplanes in the world, outside of the USA, then double that number, you still wouldnít equal the number of N registered aircraft. The US doesnít have a higher pay, it is the standard pay. European carriers just pay below what is standard.

On the flip side in Europe we have never seen the the salaries that until a couple of years ago the regional pilots were getting.


The US pilot market is more cyclical and extreme both ways, you can have crazy money one year, and being furloughed the year after.

Evening all,

I sat the online aptitude tests 6 weeks ago and not heard anything back. I hope its not because I've choked early on. Anyone else in a similar boat or able to shed some information on rough timelines for the recruitment process (NTR FO)?

The US is one country, that does not constitute average for every over country in the world. And thatís a fact. Salaries arenít based on number of aircraft, but supply and demand. Perhaps all those extra aircraft cause an increased demand? And itís difficult for foreign pilots to take jobs because of work permits unlike other countries? Thus salaries rise?

Nobody is arguing with you about US pay. Of course we have the advantage that from a really young age (20 years old sometimes) you can start on better money on bigger jets compared to your regionals.

Iím also NTR FO with successful application but hadnít asked when it will be so thatís good to know.

However my TUI assessment is in a week and I have just sent Ryanair my CV (no idea how quick they are) so Nov might be too late.

Cant say for NTR as Im a rated FO but ive got a confirmed start date for this year. I know for a fact theres been more than 1 of these courses offered already. Im going for Berlin.
You can give them a call, Ive had very nice contact every time ive called and estimates of start dates have been more or less on point.

Thanks.

Hi, anyone that has an idea of the present wait time for a NTR FO (Berlin base) from successful assessment to start date for TR?

Thx.
