I recently joined and managed to get a loan quite easily despite a massive mortgage and some money on cards. I escaped from a shi**y airline that was well on its way to ruining my health.

It's a short term sacrifice guys. Not ideal but in the end we're talking about 3k worth of interest to get another valuable type on your license. 3k to make yourself more marketable and employable and in many cases still cheaper than some people's smoking and boozing habits.

Fast forward 3 years you have your money back. Let's not kid ourselves, the number of non TR jobs in Europe for FOs are limited. We're I want to live and be based it's only BA that even offers such a thing.

I get what works for some doesn't work for others but you have to respect that some people's choices are governed by what they view as long term gains.

All the best

Maybe fact check that. The operation doesnít require any pilots in FLL, not sure how that would mean that they are desperate for guys in FLL

So do they have FLL based pilots or not?

Yes they do. My point is that flights to/from FLL can be as easily operated by pilots from other bases as they have done for years. So the notion that they are desperate for pilots in one particular crew base canít be correct

It seems that they will drop the 40k euros deposit.
a friend of mine has had a course offer for December 10 and it clearly states no money upfront
that is a great news

Is he with OSM or Rishworth aviation? Where has he been told he will be based?

After being in contact with OSM, I can confirm that I received similar information.
The cash up front bond has been dropped.

That is great news indeed!

Apparently the salary is to be reduced to offset the zero bond upfront requirements. Anyone else confirm this?
Allegedly, it kicks in once you have started your contract, and is buried deep in the small print.

The Bond has been been changed to sort of a "promise" which of course is on paper with your signature on it. It has the same T&Cs as the former bonding and reduces at the same pace, but there is no money or bank guarantee needed upfront. This is the case for all bases except London.
Paris and Rome, though NAR, are handled via Global Crew, just as LGW. Still the same promise-bonding is at place there nowadays.
So if you don't feel like giving them money upfront or are to lazy to look for a bank that is willing to give you a aval/bank guarantee. Then don't go to Gatwick.

And why exactly should any professional experienced pilot should be feeling like giving them money?

To get out of Ryanair / the Middle East ....

its not a case of being “ too lazy “, a lot of banks are not interested once you say the word aviation .

Well, it's a bond. You will get every single € back if you chose to stay for at least three years. And this is only the case if you come without a 787 or 777 rating. In case you come with an active 777 rating, you won't have a bond at all.
Same case for more or less any low cost carrier in Europe. But I guess bringbackthe80s and Daddy Fantastic are well set up with legacy contracts, so why even try to shoot the messenger?

I don’t understand this “ don’t pay to fly “ [email protected] Everybody pays to fly at some point don’t they ?

especially don’t get it from the stateside “holier than thou posse” , when their regional pilots start their career on 2 cents a sector , living in a shopping trolley in Walmart ......that’s just as bad as pay to fly.
