BA Cityflyer and Eastern ?

Any truth in the rumour that BACityflyer are to provide Operators Conversion Courses for Eastern Airways on the Embraer 170 series ? All this whilst BACF are training there own crews in an attempt to maintain numbers. One UK Sim. Will BACF crew numbers suffer as a result of the Eastern training workload ?

I don't think that's true, even though one of the Eastern 170s is likely to be operating the sub-contracted BACF route. I think contractors will be used and Eastern pilots fed in gradually.

Salary Higher now than #65K. To give you an idea, I'm year 1 and will take home over 80K. Minimum basic is 70K including the London allowance. Not great for the workload!!

I guess you mean 'take home before tax' so not really take home. 80k take home is a pre-tax salary of 132k.

How many hours a year do you reckon on flying there?

Sorry yeah. The 80K+ is gross. Personally just over 600. Know some others have been hit really hard though this year and doing nearer 700. Doesn't sound a lot but you have to factor in a higher duty time compared to other places with positioning on top.
