It is not really difficult. Just really starnge to talk to yourself on a computer screen.
My 6 questions were: How did you get into aviation and what ratings do you have nd how many hours // What are the advantages and disadvantages of beeing a pilot // What are your hobbies // What is AoA // How is "contaminated runway" defined // Describe the difference between Fly by Wire and conventional controls //
You have for every question 30 seconds preperation time. So enough to googel it and than tell them about it. For the personal questions you have more time to answer I think 2 minutes and for the technical questions 60 to 90 seconds.
They got me pretty well with the technical questions because I read somewhere that they only do HR questions but they invited me to Budapest so it seems it was not to bad.
Congratulations! I just did it only minutes before you sent your answer so...too late haha. Anyway I had the exact same questions as yours, hope to get a positive answer soon!
Cheers

Did anyone notice on the application spread sheet for DEC you could only select up to 2017 for the date when you last flew your current type? Or was it just me that had that issue? I downloaded it twice but it was still the same.

Hi everyone! Can any FO working at Wizz explain how it work’s the floating for a Copilot.

They say you work 20 on 10 Off. Do they use your off days for positioning you ?

Aside from Hotel and transport do you get any extra per diem or extra sector payment as you are out of your home ? because they say “and daily allowance”




Cheers !

And for FO they give 600 EUR xtra/moth, some one can explain more about the floating ?
Is then floating just available from these 4 cities ?

Yes the new floating scheme is for these 4 cities.
It is intended to allow crew members to live at those 4 bases whilst they wait for a permanent position to become available. Essentially, live where you want whilst waiting for a base transfer.
Once a position is available, you are taken off floating.

Anyone can tell me how much money make a floating Captain Vs permanent base?

I see on PPJN that Wizz offer a multiplier on the pay to offset higher taxation etc. Does the 1.5x apply to all payments, ie. Salary, distance pay and landing pay. Just trying to work out what a LTN capt might earn before tax.

Are fixed roster patterns available in all bases?

Hows life in Wizz at the moment? Especially training, life on the line etc. Looking at making a big jump.

Cheers

Yes, multiplier affects base+distance+landing pay.
Fixed roster is not available everywhere, but in LTN you can have fixed 5/4 (keep in mind that actually your 5th day of duty can encroach up to 2hrs on your first day OFF)
I don't know about LTN base, but generally people are happy with the job, training (SIMs are mostly done with British contractors), people, maintenance etc. except one thing - amount of work. Expect even 100+ hours/month during summer, frequent roster changes and multiple calls per month asking if you can fly from your OFF.

Nobody seems to be able to give how much income money a capt can expect when joining Wizz in LTN or VIE...
Is it lower than the other competitors? (SAIL, RYR, Ezy...)

Thank you!

How low cost is low cost at Wizz? Uniform provided? Car park? Crew food, and more importantly tea, coffee and water? Medicals reimbursed etc?

Wizz is going through a period of contract transition. A new salary scheme has been released and June will be the first full month on this scheme for the LTN based crew (those who signed up to it)
As far as I am aware, the new contract is of benefit to SFO and Captains but not for FOs.

For those joining Wizz, you will have no choice but to accept the new contract... or turn down the job.
