Hello Jonny

Any ideas of any place in the UK where one can hire a 737-300 motion sim for practice

Since when
Since the last few months, the B757 is now never utilised for recruitment sims, and the 800’s are usually too busy, so for the last few months the recruitment sims have been exclusively 737-300.

Lower amounts of forecast attrition have lead to an increase in the time/size of the hold pool is my understanding. Not sure how it works wrt start dates, I think as usual an element of luck and timing involved as I started 3 months after my assessment (NTR FO).

Has anyone done the sim assessment in the last few weeks that could PM e-mail me the sim profile, details etc and what is asked of in the sim assessment. I have an assessment in January and want to get some practise in. They’ve not sent me the details yet and I think are on leave until the new year. Please PM me and I’ll send you my e-mail address, thank you.

From a friend who works there, the 737 recruitment ceased is only temporary, not permanent.

Correct, it is suspended as the attrition rate is very low, therefore less recruitment than originally planned is required.

Does anyone have an idea of how many people are actually in the hold pool? Spoken to various people since my previous post and some have been in the pool since February - seems a long time?

I don’t know the answer to your question about how many are in the hold pool.

some people stay in the hold pool longer than others. The people in the hold pool will have been graded from their assessment day and their sim check, they will then be cherry picked from that, as well as their preferences, so if someone put that they only wanted an BHX or EMA base and someone else put any base, the one that had any base would be called prior to the one that was more restrictive if a GLA base came up.

From a reliable source

The Boeing adverts will shortly taken off their website. All those who are currently in the pool will stay in the pool and will not be forgotten. They will be called eventually. Boeing recruitment is only on hold at the moment due to large number in the pool plus little attrition of pilots.

Good luck everyone

Cpt. Jason, I think you made the right decision, having followed your posts over the last 6 months I'm very happy you will be enjoying a long career at TUI....

I’m very pleased you have a job, however perhaps you missed the first element of my reply regarding how people are fished out of the holding pool, maybe your assessment didn’t make you shine?

Technically, interviewing hasnít stopped yet for non-A321 pilots. Thereís still a few Boeing guys going through the interview and also experienced non-rated DECs.

I guess things will get back to normal once all the Bus positions are filled and the hold pool will continue to be built up and cherry picked.

This is wishful thinking but I'm curious if anyone has been fortunate enough to gain any insight (If there is any) to the phased return to flying within Jet 2, and whether or not that includes taking anyone within the hold pool?

I've been in the pool since July 2019 (NTR FO) but the last correspondence I received was March 2020. I'm sure Jet 2 have bigger concerns but just curious if anyone had heard anything 😃

Given that most of crew are on furlough they may not have lost many pilots. I would think that given the state of were we are at this present time the likely trawl of a holding pool is very unlikely.

it's just the way things are at the moment. There was I believe some noise about them taking on a apprentice intake, not sure if it was confirmed by anyone.

I hope Jet2 get back into the saddle and start their flying schedules soonest but can't imagine much movement on intake from the pool.

By coincidence, I spoke to someone this morning who is very high on the list of those likely to be taken back. Nothing happening just now.

Some cadet pilots being trained by Ryanair in the U.K. this year, final destination unknown I am told, all very questionable no doubt, but if you are desperate enough might be better trying there. Iíd make sure you have the right to live and work in the eastern extremes of Europe though and can live off a salary paid in goats.
Make sure you join a union if you do!
