Can't help with the sim or interview but BRS is short in both seats so probably a fair chance.

BRS base

BRS in the rhs has a small waiting list I think. A few apprentices who wanted BRS as first officers are having to go elsewhere and put their names on the transfer list.

in the LHS they are very short in BRS so donít think youíd have any issue getting that base

J2 will be all Airbus within 10 years, maybe even 5.

34 of the B737-800ís are less than 8 years old and were some of the last of the NG aircraft off the production line. Canít see Jet2 offloading these before they have had a return on the investment, certainly not in the next 5 years.

Agreed. I was told the buses are expansions.

No, we won't.

Can anyone explain the 75% contract? Is this a 25% reduced salary to allow company to recoup type rating and training costs or is it something else?

Thanks

It's a part time contract. 75% pay for 75% of a full time contract. Think all the time off is in the winter.

It's a 12-month 'penalty' for want of a better word, reflecting the fact you don't yet have time on big jets. You'll do a full summer and then have the deepest part of winter off. You should have a full time contract at the 12 months point since final line check I think. That's the way it's always worked in the past. I guess the idea is that there's a higher chance those candidates require more training input than those with time on jets >55 tons?

Jet2 have announced they are retrofitting 50 737s (ish?) with split scimitar winglets, at significant cost. I doubt they'll be moving those 50 on very soon.

There also said they want to be a 200 airframe operation within 10 years (2 years ago they said that anyway) which means 146 Aibus on order plus 50-plus older 737s. Makes sense to me.

Hi All,

I was wondering if anyone (current J2 pilots / colleagues etc) might have any info on the next iteration of the Pilot Apprentice Scheme? Been looking on their webpage daily for months!

Cheers!

Really - I haven't seen that anywhere, must have missed it. Could you point me to the announcement?

All the talk in the two training centres from senior management currently would indicate the Boeings days are numbered way quicker than people think....

Just to go off on a tangent, the big question for Boeing is what's next after the 737MAX? Airbus have the 321XLR and a constant improvement program. What do Boeing have?

I think a lot of senior airline management are asking that question right now.
