Pending Assessments



You have completed all assessments that are required at this time! Thank you.
That's what mine says, just checked. Anybody else?

Good luck

FO, NTR, no jet-time...probably just going (gone) into the "non-urgent PFO" pile!

Thanks for all the info MrHorgy! Great post...
I heard that jet2 is a good company to work for. Any idea what a direct entry FO would take home each month incl flight pay and what a DEC would take?
I know these have been posted before but just curious if there have been any changes..also are most contracts full time now or still part time?

DEC take home is somewhere between 4.5 and 5.abitk/m. Depends on which base and what time of the year. Add 5% to that as of next April.

Both contracts on offer this time around.

Dear Lord

Are they strict on at least 6mths in company before a shot at LHS?

Or do they need experienced guys? 10k TT 6k b756, b738.

PH,

Apply for DEC if you have command time, if you go in RHS it is as Mr Horgy posted a page back.

could they even consider someone with a totally different profile such as :
DHC6 Captain with 4500 hours total, 1500 PIC almost all of it on the DHC6 - the 300 hrs or so of flight training ??

Very curious to hear how such a pilot is "regarded" by the Airlines ??

Thks

I was in your situation once and everybody said the same thing to me: 'You really need to get some jet time'. It really annoyed/frustrated me at the time, but they were right.

If you want their advice (and mine), take a jet job in the RHS and have a bit of fun and then look for a LHS job/upgrade. That's exactly what I did and it was the best thing I ever did in my flying career.

A lot of people have tripped themselves up trying to take a short cut by going from LHS in a turboprop directly into the LHS of a jet. The vast majority of airlines of a reasonable repute will insist on jet hours before any move into the LHS.

Approach someone like Jet2 and say that you are more than happy to go back into the RHS and then after you have gained some jet experience, you would like to further your career and hope to be considered for a command. Most companies will react positively to that kind of approach. There will always be movement of crews in a company like Jet2 and therefore promotion prospects should be quite good.

I would suggest that they would be a good company to approach.


Good luck to you.

4 weeks on has anyone heard anything from Jet2 yet? My application is still showing as received. Are those with a status change to application under review all DEC or are there any NON TR FO's out there with applications under review?

Jet2 Ts&Cs

Hi Guys

Just a quick question regarding the flight pay for Skippers. I've had a sneak look on PPJN and it mentions a figure based on a nautical mile distance. How exactly does it work? Do you get an hourly rate or does it vary with nm from base?
If someone could furnish me with what a skipper adds to their pay packet each month through flight pay I would be most appreciative.

Thanks!

I would try and be patient.

They have big expansion plans requiring 100+ pilots and have probably interviewed less than a dozen so far. They were still advertising in flight this week so are still keen to get more applicants in the system.

Compass tests for experienced people have been dropped and they seem to have a much more professional approach to the whole exercise than previous campaigns a few years ago when it became a free for all.

Mine is also "Application Received" however the job status date has changed to 8th Aug which makes me think they had a look at my application the other day.

I am quite surprised to see that they are still advertising for positions. I though Jet2 would have been over-thrown by applications?

The initial sweep seems to have been for people who have a 75 rating, or people with relevant experience who can start quickly ie not in a job or redundancy pending, or people who live very close to an existing base. If you tick all or some of these boxes phone calls and interviews seem to be taking place.

Still Application received.
I live close to two bases, good hours on 73's Classics and NG and can start immediately.
Maybe I am doing something wrong?

I am in a similar boat as you guys. Type rated, living just down the road and been applying for years. Never heard anything in spite of chatting with the recruitment team. The application is nothing too in depth so I will assume for now that I haven't been ignored on account of my awful personality. Yet all this time I hear they are crying out for quality folks? Yet it seems good candidates (on paper at least) don't even get a look in. Do they not want people who have a genuine desire to work there for a long period of time and settle in?

nowt as queer as folk.

still n'owt - to coin a great Yorkshire phrase
FlyerGuy, maybe you should get your 'Yorkshire-ese' right if you are going to post here: it's "nowt" (what's the reason for having an apostrophe in t'middle of it?).

And wouldn't you think that there's a very strong chance that someone in a recruiting team (in any airline) is scanning the postings on PPRuNe as part of a filter for their recruiting?
it'll be the last time I waste my time on this carrier
Might not have been the best of comments!!
