I think what heís saying is itís highly likely you will stay in the UK but on upgrade you may have to move base within UK

Is this not the purpose of a seniority based system?Date of joining is what matters now, that's how its been explained to me.

Fair enough. I just know I got jumped on the waiting list for my preferred base by people who applied for it months after me. It was explained to me that it's because those people had earlier doj's than me and FR (at least in the UK) now employ a seniority based system.

Pay

Does anyone know what the year 1 salary is ( all in ) for an FO direct entry experienced and how likely getting a Stansted base would be? Thanks.

66k based on 850 hours

Very likely if you have the right to work and live in the UK. Currently struggling to crew UK bases, everyone maxed out on hours.

Pure curiosity - but when we state 'all in figures' with RYR what is actually being included? Is it basic salary + flight pay, or are there other additions?

STN based FO is 70k ALL IN meaning 850 block hours Plus Allowance, pension, annual leave included in that figure.

Email address

Did anyone here make the info Webinar on Wednesday? The recruitment guys advised anyone who had applied, but not heard anything to email them with candidate ID number, but I didnít catch the email address. Anyone know it please?

ToCatLady thanks for the reply above. Got the answer too on the webinar.

Back to basics....

Hi guys, Long time listener, first time caller. Just after a tiny bit of advice which, as present, seems to be very hard to find. Keeping it short and sweet - UK Citizen, UK passport, about to embark on the dreaded ATPL chapter, BIG question, UK or EASA exams? Main aim is to move outside of the UK, but are there any jobs for people in my position? Ryanair offer some type of hope for me, but with the whole EU baloney, just leaves simpletons like me, very confused on which path to take. 'm a couple months off the ATPL Mod1. Any advice would be well received.... apart from the "do both Easa and UK exams". Cheers

From what I can see and have heard in the webinar; to work for Ryanair UK currently you need a UK ATPL. You are then required to get EASA after you have started. From then on you will keep both licences updated. To work for other UK companies you need a UK ATPL.

To work for a company based in Europe or Ryanair in Europe you need EASA. The UK licence is useless here and nothing on the horizon to suggest that will change.

If your desire is to live in Europe the problem you have isn't so much the licence but the fact (due to Brexit,) you no longer have the right to live and work in Europe. Do you have a route to an EU passport? If so then get your EASAs done.

If you do the UK licence then you can apply for jobs in the UK if that is a reasonable second option for you. But its not really going to help you for working in Europe much more than any other licence that you may already have.

You can thank Brexit for this situation. (And the stubbornness Europe post Brexit.)

you are best posting this question on the Ryanair thread under the Wannabeeís the forum as theyíll have the most experience. What I will say is donít be fooled by the schools saying itíll cost an extra 8-10,000 to do a dual rating. Total rubbish and theyíre profiting from the confusion. Get one licence, and if you wish to convert to another do the process on your own.

I am still really struggling with trying to understand how Ryanair can operate non-G reg aircraft that are based in the U.K. with U.K. nationals but holding a Non-U.K. based license. I thought come January 2023 that canít happen? Will Ryanair U.K. be forced to change a lot of their aircraft to G reg?

Thanks for the replies. Just all seems very confusing and unclear. The outlook in the UK doesn't look prospering for UK passport pilots as jobs seem to be very limited with a high amount of candidates. Other than Europe, do you know of other regions that largely accept EASA cadets? Europe seems to be a very grey area with the whole loop hole Ryanair are using.

Cheers

In all seriousness your best bet for EU employment is to focus on your Tinder Premium account and try and marry a European.The flying stuff can wait.

Sounds silly, but that is actually the answer.
