Depending if you choose to pay taxes where you are resident too, in which case you will never even get close to those numbers. Those pesky tax men in let's say UK or Italy want their slice of the pie too, you know. The clever swiss tax agreement works only of you are resident in those EE countries, mind you.

Of course for someone having a family this is not an option, but being single, if I had to stay out of my home country for a certain amount of days to avoid residency I certainly would, plus I think it's quite a high amount of days which you have to spend at home to be considered resident, some countries as much as 180days per year.

Thanks
As you say, it depends on your center of interests, as the tax authorities call it. If you are single, no house and no significant properties, and you dont commute, it is not a problem. But in most other cases you will be considered tax resident in your home country.
You will be able to deduct swiss taxes from your bill, but thatís often close to zero, if you have a family.

What about some tax treaties between countries? This might make it more difficult aswell...

Tax treatynin my country allowed me to deduct swiss raxes from the total bill in my country, so that you do not pay twice, but in total what you would have paid in your own country.

Thx for any of your experiences

If they see that you perform above average during assessment you will have a very good chances.
I know 2 guys who did exactly that during last winter.

if you ever flew a broomstick or ever served snickers in the back thereíre gonna take you. Itís more or less the same thing.. and if you ****up the captain gets it, not you poor wannabe.. Doesnít matter you donít know the buttons, if youíre a nice chap and play a bit of flightsim you have what it takes!
hr ladies just need to hear you gonna go to kutaisi or skopije, but you gonna be a hotshot pilot!

I donít know what to say about those guys...
There is a xls document that you need to fill out and submit it as an application, and if one of the lines is red and not green (one line is specific regarding the minimum 300 hours), then it is null.
I have asked a tone of people from recruiting to FO and captains regarding this and they all said donít even bother if you have less than 300.

Thatís what i know

Actually, if you circumnavigate their official website by gooogling "Wizzair A320 type rating", one of the links is for CAE program. They claim only 200 hours are required, but are also announcing new bases for summer 2008, so it might be a bit outdated...

Hi guys, is there any rumour about Spain opening in the near future?

Also, which base would you consider for commuting to Madrid, for a new guy?

I have review the posts from last weeks- it looks like a big picture of Wizzair- ĄThe Cadet ShowĒ... dont get me wrong- you have rights to write here what you want and ask questions, just recently only 2-3 hundred hour pilots are joining Wizz. We have to fly with them just after line training which makes this job more and more complicated.

I am slightly curious as I have been told by a friend who recently rejoined Wizz, that he expects as SFO to be paid net 4900 - 5100 Euros a month, and as Captain net 7500 - 8000 Euro a month and Captain on floating base net 8700 - 9000 Euros a month.
He had been informed this was the pay he was expecting, based on what the company had told him. Based in Romania.
Is this really true? Sounds slightly high in my opinion, but maybe somebody working there would know better.

I believe, it all depends how you "play" with the tax ... If you only pay the 20% Swiss tax, it must be possible, if now that is legal ? I don't know, and I have doubts ...

I got the latest pilot sheet salary, with 850hr a year, 400sectors and an avzrave speed of 600km/h, I got Captain year one at 88500euro.
Now you have to use the X factor for the country, Romania is 1.45 (but I thought it was to compensate local tax the different X factors ?)
so Romania is 128500 a year, 10700 befofe tax a month ... And we come back about, how much tax your friends will pay ? If he pay tax like a normal man living in Romania, he will earn less than what wizz told him.
​​​​​​Google say, it will be 6300euro net for a year one cpt in Romania if you pay the normal tax of the country.

Wizair pilot here will probably answer all of that quickly.

I've heard very similar numbers being thrown around as well after the last pay rise, given the amount of hours being flown at the moment. Would also love to hear from someone working in Poland. Anyone able to shed some light on what a fresh FO can expect to earn for instance from a warsaw base (if lucky enough to get)

I am very curious, I do find it extremely hard to believe to be honest.

Sounds really unlikely, at least the SFO numbers... maybe in Luton on a busy month, but in CEE expect net closer to €36k yearly average (so €3k/month). €4k net in one month is possible with 100hrs, maybe some combination of flying on your OFF days, out of base, random roster etc. (my record is €3,5k)
This is however based on normal local employment contract, single household taxation, full social security etc. - maybe if you were on agency contract and got "creative" with taxation you could do better.

Agreed, 3-4K NET on a local contract sounds reasonable for a SFO. Altough I am FO and my record with out of base flying was around 3,5K net, have to check payslip for exact figure. But again, this is because of out of base flying duties. Which was quite a an okay month to be honest, good hotel, nice, people, not a big reason to complain.

Iím stuck in the RHS of bizjets (as we only fly 250-300 per year) and live near Luton so looking at TUI, Easy, Ryan and possibly Wizz as I need a stable roster and ideally chance of upgrading in the next couple of years.

I have 2800 hours.

Is LTN a likely base on joining Wizz, what can I expect to earn (Iím used to a large flat rated salary rather than sector pay etc), and how long am I looking at before getting the chance to move to LHS?

Cheers
