How to get officially the last figures as said above regarding the recent packaging improvement ?

when asking to agencies they give this document which is obviously far from the average salary in industry . (no doubt they are looking for low cost pilots)

Wizz scale

Wizz scale
check out Wizz Air on PPJN (pilot jobs network, I can't post links, just google it) - this is the exact and accurate system of current Wizz salary. And those numbers in the graphics seem spot on.

Thank you BarryMG;

So if I well understood, I made a quick calculation to have finally an idea what to get by month in wizz, assuming based in Vienna:

Assumptions :
- Base: Vienna
- 900h/Year
- Time of one average leg: 2h
- Average distance for one hour: 400 NM => 740.8 kms
- Basic salary: 45000€/year for DEC year 1 so in Vienna 45000*1.25= 56250€
- Per landing : 30€
- Per km: 0.062€

In one year
- 900h would be performed so 900*740.8 = 666720kms, thus 666720*0.062= 41337€
- Each leg is 2h so 450 legs would be performed thus 450*30= 13500€

Finally in one year: 41337+13500+56250=111087€/year

Basically the max average salary expected in Wizz at Vienna for the first year would be: 9260€ Gross

Is the basic salary in Roumania really 45000*1.45=65250 ??

Yes, however, in Romania you pay 35% social taxes. Also, the landings are tax free since there is no per diem anymore, they had to find a different legal solution.

More or less correct, the multiplier applies to landing&km pay as well, but at the same time I would expect closer to 350NM/h average

Well with the 5% increment each 1000h, Wizz becomes finally not that bad as it used to be.

I think 900 hrs a year is still a bit enthousiastic though... perhaps for OTP, BUD, WAW,LTN etc. but not for some of the smaller 3/2/1 aircraft bases like SBZ, IAS, WRO, VAR, KIV etc. 85hrs per month is a better avarage... and possible 800-850 hrs a year if you are in a smaller base...

Sure, Vienna might be different, but this is to give a general picture, as not every new captain in the company goes to the bigger bases, especially since they need captains in smaller bases at the moment... (okay, they need captains everywhere, lol, but really needed in small bases)

In ppjn it is said that they closed PRG base. Does somebody know why?

Probably not enough route demand? As far as I know the planes that used to be based in PRG moved to the new Vienna base.

Did you have the video interview?
Do you mind sharing what questions you had?
I have one this week and cannot find any feedback.

You do not have to have Hungarian license, any EASA one will make it however company pays only Hungarian, Polish or UK license related fees. At least a couple of years ago it was like that.

As soon as you finish TR (in 1 or max 2 weeks) your conversion course starts which includes the base training.

My mind is blown! All this casual talk about 850-900hrs a year! Are Wizz pilots really maxed out to that extent?

I guess I am lucky only being in a 2 aircraft base. 80 hours in July, and only 40 in august since I got holiday for almost half of August.

Wondering what it's gonna be like when summer is over... and I got hours left while others ran out.... lol

If on a local contract you pay social security ok the coubtry where you are based, which includes state pensions.

No private pension, if that’s what you were thinking.

Hello,

If you are wondering how it is in Wizz Air, and if you should apply please note that Wizz Air has increased the salaries in the whole network and that they are from 7K to 10K depending on your civil status, Net for cpt. 2500 to 5000 for fo/Sfo. Its without pension though, still quite competitive.

They are massively in need of pilots, putting some aircrafts on the ground here over the winter due to lack of pilots. Atmosphere is good and its quite stable at the moment regarding financial situation, and people are in general quite happy.
