Doesn't really matter, all training materials should work on both, I haven't heard any complaints either way.

If experienced 15.000 otherwise 20.000. If bonded, they look after traveling and accommodation costs, if you decide to pay upfront then you have to sort travel and accommodation yourself.

Sadly taken from post tax salary, not pre tax. I don't know why they do this, as I'm pretty sure the latter is perfectly legit.

This is not correct. The gross salary is lower when bonded.

I guess you're Europe. The UK taxman is brutal in taxing everything. Still, on this, a gross deduction should be possible.

The same applies to Wizz Air UK and Wizz Air Abu Dhabi.

Hi everyone,

Just got an invitation for Budapest but I can't select a date.
When I click on any date of the calendar I have the message "All event is full" or "Cannot find event".
What should I do please ? I know some people here had the same problem, but I can't find their post anymore

Thank you

They haven’t uploaded any new dates onto the booking system, just keep checking it every couple of days for the next lot of dates to be released.

Did someone attend the Wizzair Pilot Event in Rome today? If so, was there a QR code for them to analyze your application faster (in 7 days)?

And more;Try with different device (I can’t do it with I pad i.e.) if doesn’t work you cannot book the date yet as already explained.
I had the same scenario.

Good luck

Back to 6/4, but at least they cannot plan you to finish after midnight on the last day like they used to. Only available in bases with at least 5 A/C, at bases with 3+ A/C next spring.

Guys, stop believing whatever you read in those presentations and pdf-s with magenta headers: 5/4, 6/4, base change policies, etc. can be all changed as they please. It's not part of any employment contract whatsoever and never will be unless the pilot group finally wakes up, organizes and gets a collective agreement signed containing the above mentioned policies and provisions. Until then it's all smoke and mirrors.
