Decent advise but you missed one point
If HR refuse to provide it then write one your self and take it to your line manager and get them to print it on company paper and sign it.
Keep all these letters in your own file for future interviews if necessary.
No line manager will sign any document without HR and their legal dept guidance in a real company so you might not get that. Better to be honest and present any items confirming you to have been there for those dates as proof......

I have done this several times and never had a problem getting CP or TRI TRE signing it......as usual pilots don't really care much about what HR say, most HR people don't know the law. It is being honest because when you write it yourself you have the exact dates employed from and last day you left and your job title, that is all you need and all they are required to provide. Some companies will send a questionnaire to previous employer with the Q would you employ this person again? on it, a sneaky approach but a professional company would ignore it or write not applicable. Usually they just put the dates and job title.
For your security check and ID pass this is the information you need, no one provides or is interested in wether you did your job, went sick, or didn't show on time, these are all things the lawyers don't allow. Other items are not acceptable for security.

Hi Guys,

I am hoping one of you can help me. I have just completed my license and MCC and have just short of the 300 hours required to apply as a NTR cadet. I am seriously considering applying to Wizz as they seem like a stable airline and I really like the idea of flying the new A321 coming next year, but I cannot find any details regarding this cadet type rating online.

Does anyone know the cost, salary (if any), contract terms, roster and how difficult it is to apply. I am looking at a couple of airlines but Wizz is a promising option, if I only new more.

Thanks in advance

Thanks a lot, I'll tell my mate to apply then!

Has anyone got a copy of the Type Rating T&Cs for Cadets?

How does Wizz's basing system work?
Once you get a base is it possible to move to another one? Considering there are places in small cities it would be nice to know if transitioning is easy or you are stuck in base for years.
Thank you in advance

You can transfer - subject to availability and having a replacement for your slot - so there are some places whre it's hard to get to, some where it's not easy to get out from.
You sign up for a base and wait - since a few months the system is based not only on time of waiting, but also (IIRC) seniority in the company, closeness to home (variable whether single, married, with kids).

well, I did the video interview last wekend. the question were:
- tell us about your flying experience, how many TT do you have, which ratings
- what are your hobbies
​​​​​​- explain advantages and disadvantages of a low cost airline model
- explain differences between DA/DH/MDA
- read and explain given METAR (pay attention to RWY states on this one)
- what is RVSM

good luck everyone!

Whats the hiring looking like for DEC or experienced FO/SFO in any base? Actively seeking or full up at present?

Got a mate (non ppruner) with almost 6000 hours, roughly 2100 jet on CRJ 700/900 all SIC, 500 SIC on turboprop King air and about 1800 PIC on turboprop King Airs and 1400 SEP/MEP all PIC

He asked me to ask what he should apply for (DEC/SFO) and what his chances are in the present Wizzair hiring climate as well as the bonding system as he wont pay
for a TR.

Any help will be much appreciated.

Hello chaps,

Any idea what would a Type Rated FO with frozen ATPL get in Luton (net).

Thanks

PS PJN website is a bit wage on low experienced FO's in UK. Giving salary in Euro. Not sure if it is the correct data.
