People's Council is a joke. For those with Stockholm syndrome it's a union or so they believe.

Are they really short of pilots? What are the T&C for new FO hires? Do they still offer italian bases to nationals?

Overstocked with airframes is another way to put it.

Then trying to paint that as a virtue by designing future growth targets for which the current state is a necessity.

Extremely briefly:

1. yes
2. depends on the experience (rating yes/no - hours on type)
3. happened recently, with very experienced new joiners (they already left) but not initially in normal conditions

Hello everybody.
.
I am, like many others, waiting to be invited for an assessment (fATPL, nTR).
.
What I’m about to write here is what my friend has told me. He applied in winter last year and was contacted end of November. He was offered two dates to choose, the latest being two weeks away.
.
The assessment is divided in 4 sections, over the course of 2 days.
.
The first day you start with a theoretical assessment (60 questions in 60 minutes, ATPL general knowledge, general Math, Wizzair info like fleet size orders and so on) on which the pass mark is 70%.
.
After this he had an interview, mostly on Air Law and Operational Procedures (he made examples like “when is an Alternate airport not required”, “what is the distance between runway edge lights”, “what is the minima for a CAT II ILS”) which he found rather difficult.
.
The next day he had a sim session and a psychometric assessment, which he judged pretty easy. The sim consisted of a straight departure, some basic airwork and an approach (MXP, AMS or MAN).
.
T&C’s: the type rating is fully sponsored. You have the option to pay for it upfront (14000EUR). Should you decide to not pay for your type you are deducted 400EUR/month for 4 years and they will be earning little money out of it (19200EUR). You will receive 1000EUR per month during ground training. After 4 years of employment you are entitled a Loyalty Bonus of 7000EUR.
.
There seems to be a package you can buy on Latestpilotjobs.com where you can prepare for the wizzair assessment.
.
Hope this is useful to all of us.
.
Should anybody have First Hand Experience on this, welcome to add more information.

Just seen an article on Wizzairs exciting new flight from LGW to the Greek Islands departing at 2200 and getting back at 0700.... If you are willing to operate those hours for the pay at Wizzair to be based out of London you are a fool.

What the hell are you talking about they are earning little money out of your TR, 19000 for a course that costs 14000 is a return on investment of over 35%, no wonder you are applying to these idiots

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. I’m 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
