I think the correct term is the type rating is a 15000 euro bond, they deduct it at approx 416e per month for 3 years. at the end of the third year you get half back before tax as a payment if you stick it out that long.

Agreed. Iím waiting out on nights at Asda until I get the perfect flying job offered to me. Fools.

I received an email early December to renew my 2021 application in preparation for 2022 hiring. I renewed it last week.

I am a UK citizen with an EASA license, type rated on a turboprop with 200hrs on type.

Any idea if/when they'll start calling people? I got overlooked last year

Do they offer italian bases for NTR and low hours on CS25, if they are italian nationals?
If so, what's the average salary for SO/FO to be expected in Italy ? And how many hours per month?

So, given the flight hours mentioned above, it seems like most of the NTR candidates who have been invited to an Assessment Day are individuals who have probably applied for the "FO - NTR - Experienced" opening (correct me if I'm wrong).

Any news regarding the "FO - NTR - Cadet Level" candidates? (i.e. recent flight school graduates, low amount of total flight hours but within their requirements)

Originally applied in October (2021), applied again in December after receiving an email prompting us to update the application for the 2022 recruitment period, but the status still reads "we are currently reviewing all applications".

I have replied to you on this before up here.
Anyway, bases are assigned on a random basis. Do expect an eastern Europe base at the beginning.
There are no SO in W6, only FO and SFOs.
Lots of hours in summer, less in winter.
Money varies according to the local contract.

Best of luck to those invited.

How do you qualify as FO? I have experience on CS25. Am I considered as SO if I am not rated? Thanks

You would be considered Airbus inexperienced FO.
Benchmarks are 0 to 500 to 1500 hrs on type (FO) and over 1500 hrs on type (SFO).
FO and SFO have separate payscales.

Is it 1500 hours on type to qualify as SFO or do previous CS-25 hours count in the grand scheme of things?
I know they factorise hours out of Wizz.
