You should probably ask the people who offered it to you

Sure!! I asked but somebody could provide some terms that could be useful because they didnít provide information during the roadshow.

Would your 3 months off be Jan, Feb and March by any chance so they don’t even have to give you paid leave.
Sounds like a good deal ( for Ryanair ).

Silly question but why did you not ask about the terms and conditions at the time when they offered you the contract?

Okay, maybe it was a job advert for a 9/3 option during a marketing event.

Any details about the job offer behind it? Seems not yet.

Knowing Ryanair they are more than capable to make you fly 900 hours in those 9 month, so you would spend most of the remaining 3 months recovering from fatigue, and without getting paid..
I would be very careful.

You'll have to contribute to Social Security on your own during those three months if you don't want to loose those days when you retire

Is incredible but I was chatting with Ryanair Pilots and they told me the same 900 hs in 9 months and no pay and contributions during the 3 months off. Apparently is a rubbish contract.

Guys it is highly unlikely that they will ever come up with any kind of win-win contract or T&Cs, it's just not in their dna. Also consider that :

Ryanair issues profit warning as fares fall

so they must be trying all sort of tricks in order to increase productivity.

If you are an employee then you will get the 75% salary over the 12 months and the sector payments on top while flying

If you are on a different "contract" then you would have to contribute anyway

Well, you have the wrong info, not sure why you always have to spread untrue rumors, you actually do get paid your basic salary all other allowances spread in 12 months.

As I suggested, contact the recruiters directly

Hi I can tell you directly from the horses mouth that you are paid over 12 months, it is a 75% contract, flying months are Feb to Nov, for annual leave you receive 75% of normal entitlement and 75% of the basic pay, you are paid full annual allowance and normal sector pay, this in on offer in bases that have summer uplift.

I saw the memo. It says that you will earn 75% of basic pay and allowances over 12 months and Sector Pay (flight hours) only the months you fly.

I would stay as normal, but is just my opinion.

If they take 75% of your time and pay 75% of your basic in return, and
pay in full for all the flighthours delivered

where's the catch?
