does ryanair pay for TR ? the market is on our side, so I will apply only if they pay for the TR.

Non rated Captains are bonded for three years. Only rated FOs with time on type or cadets recruited for the RHS. Rated FOs offered permanent contracts on joining. Cadets can apply at 1800 hours in the company If Iím not mistaken.

UK permanent FOs average around £3500 net. Busier summer months a bit more obviously.

Could anyone shed some light on Ryanair accepting ICAO ATPL for type rated DEFO. How much time is given on the validation before having to convert etc?

Many thanks!

12 months to validate but they have a long list of direct entry FOs and doubt they will look at DEFO, they would look at ICAO captains and its a straightforward process, they have just hired a lot of Brazillians through this channel.

depends what you are talking about, type rating for cadets is circa Ä30k, no type rating for direct entry Captains and non type rated captains is a 3 year reducing bond of Ä15k, so you pay Ä5k each year.

Just how desperate are they for DEC's?

Assuming rated Captains are not falling over themselves to join, what are they taking in terms of hours / experience?

- 5/4 roster we know

- UK salary?

- flight remuneration? Per sector? Per day worked?

Is anyone prepared to say.

Listen. Donít worry about the pay, or that there is no LOL protection, exceptionaly poor company pension scheme, no food, no water, pay for your own car parking, uniform and the like. Itís all about a 5/4 roster. Itís bloody brilliant.

I heard a rumor that you can guarantee your mortgage nowadays by saying that you have a 5/4 roster.

Not at all! Just wish I had a 5/4 roster. And that warm feeling it brings.

Very happy to hear you got ďyourĒ UK base. I spent 6 years in total based at STN as an FO. When I got offered a command I was told ďno UK bases for new commands - weíre saving those for the DECís.Ē Loyalty pays apparently but certainly not in RYR. I, like many other command-ready FOís left as a result and never looked back. Their short-sightedness is incredible - if they werenít so hell bent on stitching up their current employees and gave them the bases they wanted then they wouldnít even need to recruit DECís!

Vueling is a lot better, and you fly A320, you get more opportunities with this rating especially in Europe/ ASia.

that's a start and all the rest is provided as you seem to skip...(insurance, uniform, water, medical, OPC......)
take the hours and move on, as I said, it's easier. anyway, off topic.
