The minimum days off is either 8 or 9 per month, can't remember exactly but that's close enough. As a line pilot you'll get pretty much that in the summer and more than that in the winter to give you your contracted days off per year. The spread of the days off is mixed, usually 2 or 3 consecutive days off in the summer, maybe more occasionally in the winter. You can pre-book 3 request days off a month unless you work a flexible roster with a fixed pattern.

Yes I think the minimum is now 9 but through this summer I've been getting about 12.

Also a duty rest period or whatever they're called after a late or series of lates is essentially a day off but not counted towards your days off.

Airbus Deliveries

With regards to the airbus order and deliveries does anyone have any insight as to when they are scheduled to arrive and to which bases they will be assigned?

Manchester, Birmingham, Edinburgh and then the rest of the bases, they slowly arrive over the next 18 months and then 2 a month into infinity after that.

Is there any chance of EDI if you fly the 737 as an FO, or is this looking less likely now the Airbus is going to be placed there? Would be great not to have to commute again.

Thanks

So, I've been rejected twice in a year now without an assessment. A320 TRd skipper with 7,000 total and 2,000 PIC. My choice of bases has been STN, BHX and MAN. I know guys applying and interviewing in the space of a month. Is there something undesirable on my CV perhaps? Anyone know what it might be or had a similar experience? I'm a Brit with a UK license and have worked for a similar operator in the past, last 5 years has seen me work for more airlines than I would've liked, so the CV is a bit "jumpy" but hardly my fault?

That does seem strange as J2 are absolutely desperate for Airbus rated guys. I wouldn't of thought that working for a few airlines would be an automatic rejection. But I don't know for sure

Could there be another reason?

Have you enthused about, or mentioned being active within BALPA in your applications?
BALPA may be recognised within Jet2 but the company is very hostile towards it.

Nope, nothing about Balpa. Other stuff maybe.

There's a lot of info in the pilot apprentice thread on here. Have you been contacted to complete these for the latest recruitment round?

Not at the moment. Just want to prep for if I'm lucky.

How long you swim can depend on your requirements as well as Jet2's. If you want a specific base rather than relocating and joining a transfer list, you might have to wait until space becomes available. Don't forget, you'll also be behind others who have already joined at a non-preferred base and put themselves on the transfer list.

Either way, expansion will continue over the next 7 years due to orders, so no panic. Just my opinion of course!

I interviewed in Nov, got a call in Dec for start date in March. But it clashes with existing leave and booked holiday, which they knew about so I said ideally Id like a May/June start and they didnt seem to have any problem with that.
