Back on thread, can I ask a bit of a bone question please?
Approximately of course, what is the success rate of Jet2 NTR candidates who make it to interview/sim?
It’s costs the company a lot of cash for assessment.

While I don't have a success rate percentage for you I gather it is quite high. I myself was NTR and passed the assessment a few years ago on the same day some TR candidates did not. I have met plenty of guys who have joined from Flybe/Eastern/Loganair and on the flip side I personally know two NTR candidates who admitted to me they became overwhelmed in the sim and did not get through. It is not a difficult assessment in my opinion but the usual things like showing an ability to learn and improve is the key I think.

Throwaway - have you kept in touch with the recruitment team? I only ask as I know plenty of people that have completed the recruitment assessment considerably more recently than that and are now type rated and done and dusted.

I wish there was a 'like' button!

There's so much cr*p posted here these days, to find one that isn't is quite a feat, but this is one!
We're obviously of a similar age, I had 20+ years of a wonderful long and short haul lifestyle with Monarch before the bubble burst, I'd recommend it to anyone, but would I want to do it again now?........No way, home every night and with no worries about impending ATOL licences for me these days!

Hello there! I'm interested in applying as a Non Type-Rated FO, does one have to pay for the TR or is it bonded and how?

Also, I'd greatly appreciate if someone could PM me some example schedules.

Thanks very much!

Hello all.

I saw on latest pilot job network an ad for a jet2 open day in Stansted the 07th June.

I didn't find anything on the jet2 website...

Can someone confirm if there is an open day the 7th?

Thanks

Out of interest, has anyone been given a start date for this years intake yet? I've seen a few posts on Linkedin of late implying peeps are joining.

The salary at ppjn is gross or net?
Net??? You wish, that's gross.

Lifestyle - 737 line pilots are fairly quiet in the winter months but there are some exceptions, and in the summer expect to work hard. Days off per month is 10-12. Standby duties per month depend on the month in question, in the winter quite a lot, in the summer much fewer, 1 or 2 ish.

Fewer stanby duties in the summer? Surely that’s when you need the cover - for when things start going wrong like ATC delays and so on. Without stanby’s how does the company recover the service?

ScouseGeordie - Aircrew are expensive assets so you can never have enough standby cover. These days Airlines in general have more standby's than "the good old days" because of the EU Comp rules. The best way to manage it however is give crews a big wad of cash to fly on their days off (which is cheaper than subchartering an aircraft)
Switched on Airlines like Thomson worked out many many years ago that a Pilot who sells his day off can cover morning, afternoon and night flights whereas if not you need 3 crew on standby then a few more to cover every "what if" scenario that the Airlines Commercial and Ops folk will come up with. #justsaying if Phil Ward is reading this...

The only night stops that have just started are 3 sector days out of STN where they might stop in PMI.

In the winter there are ad hoc charters that sometimes involve nights away.

Other than that, there are no planned nightstops.

Agree, you might want to delete that comment as they monitor this forum quite alot. I've found jet2 to be nothing but professional, infact very professional, they are up there with the best of them.

Anyone able to answer a few questions about PMI base 8-4 roster? First of all is it 8 months on, 4 off, or, 8 busy, 4 quiet?

Also,
Is basic pay payed all 12 month?
What are rosters like?
Take home pay for Captain?
General happiness in the company and in the base?

Thanks
