Maybe they believe their own press too much...

Hello everyone,

I've been trying to locate updated information about the online assessment for Jet2! I don't know what to study for or what to expect. People say it is relatively straight forward, but it might not be for me ! Ha. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Don't hesitate to PM me.

Thank you very much !
Regards

What Do the rosters On the 757 during summer look like?
Rosters are busy in the summer

Is it also mostly 6/2?
No. The roster varies from 3 or 4 days on to occasionally 6 on, days off vary from 2 - 4 days off in a row.

Do you have overnights every now and then or mostly returning to base?
There are no overnights in the schedule. There are occasional one off charters (mostly during the winter) where night stops are involved.

Hi there,

Am in the middle of applying for Jet2 as a non TRed FO. Am I right in thinking that they have recently just been given a payrise? If so what is the estimated monthly take home pay of a year 1 FO now for summer/winter on a 100% contract? Including block hours.

Yes within the last year there has been a rise. Expect, with standard pension contribution of 6% a little over 3k after tax. I'm not in the busiest base and in Summer would get perhaps 5/600 on top of that in flying pay. Occasionally more if offered day off payments etc. Winter obviously a fair bit less in flying pay with the quieter roster. I did a little less than 600 hours last year and that was considered a lot by some

No worries. Bare in mind though that those figures are accurate with respect to a 100% contract.

They are about right for FO, add around 280 a month for SFO.

600hrs a year sounds far to much like hard work to me. I did less than that.

It's duty hours not flying hours that determine the value of the job.

Duty hours last year, a lot less than 1000.

Well yes and no.

In Jet2 a flying day generally consists of minimum report time, less than an hour turnaround and minimum post duty times. So minimal non-flying duty hours involved. Completely and totally different to the likes of BA.

Of course there are many standbys aswell, especially in winter, but to me that just adds up to unparalleled amounts of time at home (albeit with my phone in my pocket)

No, of course not, and the money is not as good either. Best job ever. At least I escaped spending every other weekend in the Globana.

Saw a Bournemouth flying club Falcon 20 yesterday, now they really are living the life of riley

Is EDI still entirely 300s or will it also get some 800 flying? What is the mix of 300 to 800 flying at other bases?

Just echoing what the guys above have said....

Figures all correct above, expect circa 2800 take home in the summer on 70% for the first year. And less than 300 hrs pa if on the 75....

EDI mixed 300/800 not sure of the actual breakdown of aircraft numbers though. GLA exclusively 800 as far as I'm aware, BFS exclusively 300. The remainder of the bases a mix of both currently. I think BHX when opened will be all 800 but happy to be corrected on that...

I thought the 75 will do less, especially with the new 3 year lease with Air Tankers A330.

Don't think it's slots out if MAN, more like slots into Spain that are at a premium.
