Don't ever become a pilot. If you were unfortunate and you are already one, PAY the RHS of an airliner. "Resistence is futile you will be assimilated" or "No Money No Honey ? "

From my limited experience its a very tough business, full of people like Michael O'Leary particularly in training organisations, though not all. Its just one of those industries that just wants your money, probably a bit like a casino but harder to leave....

Does anyone know how much a Ryanair cadet can expect to earn in their first couple of years on the line?

Never ceases to amaze me how some people think itís the fault of pilots who never bought their jobs that P2F is now dominant.

Economics 101. If you refuse to buy your front, right-hand seat the operators will come around sooner than if existing crew complain. And anyway, why should they? As Chesty Morgan says, nobody forces the newbies to sign the purchase agreement. (Sorry, did I write purchase agreement? I meant employment contract.)

You'll be amaze to read the wannabe section of Pprunes
It is confirmed that cadets without MCC now have to pay 50bucs to sit the online cut-e test at home.
The sad part is, If you apply to EZY, Norwegian, Aer lingus, this is the same online test, except in those cases, it's free of charge
Genuine don't you think ??

Really? Your "gross" must include the expenses which other airlines just pay for.

Oh right. Easy dont charge you for the test but charge a cadet 30k for the rating donít they? So the online test is ok then... No wonder Iím flying with loads of CTC/L3 cadets lately ......

These Ryanair figures are incorrect. I am a Capt based Stansted and my gross is £135,500 including pension and excluding my training supplement. Quite a difference from the £110,508 quoted above which is way out of date. I note the Easy figures are for a 10 year Capt. Thatís hardly relevant for anyone joning today as we all know both Easy and Ryanair salaries will be somewhat different by then. Roster in all bases in Ryanair is 5/4. None have 5/3 these days. Also, positioning to sim at own cost on days off? Nonsense if youíre on a Ryanair contract. That said, we do pay for our hotel for sim days but if youíre based in STN your sim will likely (but not always) be in STN so thereís rarely a cost involved.

Skyflyer those figures are bull and you know it.....or maybe you donít know it. Anyway I will enlighten you. Skippers for FR STN :

74k basic
6k allowance
12k productivity (paid 1000 monthly)
Total 92k before any sector pay.
Sector pay is 38.49 per flight hour. 750 hours add 29k to 92k and if you are an LTC add 13500k to the above. So if your an LTC doing 750 hours on a 5-4 then that will be just shy of 135k gross. I know Line skippers doing 5 to 6 off days a month at the moment at £600 gross plus sector pay a pop.

Lazy - they are not bull. As you state - £92k before sector pay. Who flies 750hrs a year? I fly 850hrs / yr minimum every year (wish it was less!) but that makes £32716 in sector pay. Plus £103.45 per annual leave day x 28 so add £2886 to the sector pay. Add £8000 pension (I added that as the guy quoting Easy figures added it) and that adds up to £135,612.

Skyflyer. Apologies. My post was aimed at 100percent and the chart, which is obviously out of date and incorrect.

RTFP. Apologies again.

Hi Romeo Victor.

Do you know how much they charge for a type rating?
Thanks
