Does anybody knows if they are making OCC for DEC For Ryanair Europe? I know people who passed the assessment without news yet?

Pretty much all UK FOs (certainly at the big bases) have been maximising hours, even this November many are hitting 90. The cadets "taking hours" was a story early this year and in 2021. In actual fact they have been scheduling some flights with 2 captains due to RHS shortages.

For the non rated FO positions recently advertised, how does the type rating work out financially? Are they expecting people to pay anything upfront?

I wouldn't have thought so. Surely the EI and G planes would be on different AOCs in different countries.

Anyone able to share the take home of an experienced RYR FO usually? Lauda was looking like £3500 take home from what I saw and itís pretty grim surviving on that money in London.

That is DAC approximately. Lauda is much less than that.

Based on 850 hours. Also includes pension contributions from RYR so that figure is artificially inflated. CPT approx 129k, FO approx 66k

Also on upgrade currently first 2 years reduced in LHS. £15kish less. Many not upgrading for this reason either waiting for it to go up or just jumping to ME.
All after tax UK based. Bank on £3700ish as experienced FO around £6k ish as CPT. LTCPT around £7k ish seems to be figures thrown around. SFI FO heard figures between £4kish with some older contracts up to £6k.

Is anyone able to share a realistic expectation on STN upgrade if you join with enough hours and perform to the required level? Are you likely to have to change bases? Friend got his upgrade after 18 months in Europe but had to move to a different country, they are very happy with RYR having done long haul previously.

Base Shenanigans

If you were to join as NTR in UK do they offer the base before you sign the contract? Can this be trusted?

and if joining as FO would you have to move again when doing upgrade?!

Last time I looked, Scotland was quick, even immediate (for joins and upgrades), so you might be ok.

That said, Stansted IS an unpopular base thanks to balpa's exercise in "leveling down" (pay reduced to the same as the regional bases where costs of living are far far lower) - so you might be able to stay there, if that's what you want.
What about BREXIT though, if you join as an experienced FO with a few thousand hours. Is it easier to stay in the UK after the upgrade?
