I know it's not always a clear cut case with definitions but ICAO Annex 6 "Operation of Aircraft" (4.3.6.3 ) specifically states:

c) contingency fuel, which shall be the amount of fuel required to compensate for unforeseen factors. It shall be five per cent of the planned trip fuel or of the fuel required from the point of in-flight re-planning based on the consumption rate used to plan the trip fuel but, in any case, shall not be lower than the amount required to fly for five minutes at holding speed at 450 m (1 500 ft) above the destination aerodrome in standard conditions;

Note.— Unforeseen factors are those which could have an influence on the fuel consumption to the destination aerodrome, such as deviations of an individual aeroplane from the expected fuel consumption data, deviations from forecast meteorological conditions, extended taxi times before take-off, and deviations from planned routings and/or cruising levels.
So it is stated in an official ICAO document that contingency fuel can be used for before take-off.

Hi everyone!
I have sent my email application to AL today, and there was no automatic email response with a confirmation of receipt - does anyone know if this is "normal", or did other people receive a (automated) reply?
Thanks and cheers!

Hey guys,

are there any news/updates regarding the assessment. Or is it still the Hoehnerbach with the 737 classic the next day?

Cheers,

Hello to everyone,

Is someone going for the assessment in the short time period? I got the invitation and the time between is just less than 2 weeks. They wrote me that I may expect the Hesse/Schrader test. Is it possible to prepare myself in this short period?

my question is which mainly subject are tested? There is like 61 modules. For example also: Biologie, chemie, music etc...
i know that there can be the geografie, geschichten etc.

If you can give me some tips I appreciate all 😇🙏🏻🤟

I guess you have few days left, give it a try, better than nothing.

Do they still assess you at dinner to see if your etiquette is to the required standard ?

You fly cargo at night, to crap holes, get a shit salary and they assess your " etiquette " ? 😁😁😁. That's funny.

I think it’s still the worst paid 777 job worldwide. On the other hand guys with low hours can get a chance to fly a widebody to many destinations and the bond should be only 2 years because of German laws...so you have good cards in your hands after these 2 years...

And the roster used to be pretty good, you can use DHL network to jumpseat. If you are part of the Austrian Maffia you even have a chance to upgrade one day.
still the pay is way too low and personally as a lowtimer you should not want to start on a LH operation.

Resident Status

My understanding is that many of the pilots commute to Leipzig for this job.

With 15 days off per month and most of the working ones overseas:
What is the tax situation?
Do you have to pay taxes in Germany (I assume company would withhold taxes before paying you) or you can chose to remain resident in Czech Rep. or Poland and pay own taxes?

I assume that salary figures posted on Pilotjobsnetwork.com are "take home" amounts, after (DE) tax (?)

Some more details on part time options would also be very helpful.

Danke Schön

Usually figures are given gross. Tax can vary for each one a lot. So that makes no sense to give the net figures.

Tax can indeed vary according to additional income in the household.

But if these are "take home" figures for German residents, they should be after tax-social security-state pension deduction.

commuting

Hi all,

Could you, as a commuter, give me some roster examples? Days off, kind of rotations before, is it possible to do 2 rotations and get a longer block off after etc etc?
Thanks in advance and greets

I think it's more about getting to know the applicants in a less "assessment"-like setting to see whether you'll fit in and get a good look at your personality.
You could say it's a role-play/personality test and they serve food on the side I guess.

Still as others have said - the pay is below par. Shiny big jet syndrome alert.

to see if you have a Monacle and can click your heels correctly.
Having seen a video of one of their crews on YT, I’m surprised they bother because the captain , who I think was management , seemed like a nightmare .
