Klimax, are you able to confirm your information? It is very much at odds to all the other posts regarding Smartlynx conditions. Your fellow pilots (?) use this seriously please donít yank their chains.

I wrote in other Smartlynx group but I will post it here too.

Anyone in the company (or having current information) and can tell what would be situation in Autumn 2019 and Winter 2020. They have type rating courses in October and November 2019 however what I read from above and willing to know whether starting line training would be possible before spring 2020 in case of contract offer after TR. How about yearly flying hours, is it too bad as it is stated above regarding to Winter months?

I think your find they make money from those courses and sometimes they hire a few people. So its a bit hit and miss ...

If you hired its through agencies like mountain high. You don't get any benefits, need to cover your own taxes and you don't get paid when not flying. Might be okay for a few months to get 500 hours and then leave but nota place with a good reputation for taking care of employees.

Up ! I've been reading quite a lot about this airlines but couldn't find any info regarding their type rating course. Do they offer employment before starting the course, or is it easy to get a contract after it ? Are many trainees working for SL after the type rating ? Thanks !

Hello guys,
I'm considering to do a TR with them, does anyone have more up to date infos about the possibility to get recruited after ?
Any other plans if it doesn't go as expected ?

What's the deal with them? 30k for the type rating and then if you get recruited it's 100 euro a day? It's ACMI, so you might be living in different hotels for long periods. The problem is, will they recruit you or not?
They had an incident in Tallinn a couple of years ago during a base training exercise.

I can imagine, not the best place for sure, I was wondering the likelyhood to get hired after.
I'm open to everything, even not being paid for getting experience.

That's a good way to turn many future colleagues against you...

Chances to get hired after type rating depends on many circumstances. Now it is season end, many F/O's which are over 500 hrs or 1500hrs will go to better companies. Also, depends on airline's next season planning. This high season they reached their highest number of A/C ever it should be around 23/24. I don't know if they will ever go above this number. To me 24-25 A/C seems like ACMI operator maximum unless they got more long term wet lease businesses. Also this autumn and winter there will be cadets in TR which are trained for Smartlynx since the beginning of their ATPL. I think they will get priority to get hired over other TR students. However, I still believe that at least half of the TR people will be hired as F/O considering the data from previous years.

Hello everyone, I applied for SL, specifically for the option of the 19k + 500euros for the pre assessment with 3-year bond in case of successful pre-assesment. I will probably have the pre-assesment in January, does anyone have any helpful feedback or hint to help me pass them or get there more prepared? Also informations/fun facts about the company would be very appreciated Thank you in advance to everyone
