Great job with some really top people. Challenging conditions and you will learn so much it will make you a better Captain one day when you move onto bigger things. Wonderful place to live also.

Cons: you will not do much flying in the winter and the money is crap, circa 23K per year.

Many have moved on to the likes of Flybe, Monarch, VistaJet, Easy and Jet2
