STN is free parking, you just need an airport ID to access it, which is also free

Can anyone provide a rough estimate on the take-home money for an STN-based F/O? Something between 3.5K to 4K quid?

The routes vary very little, some seasonal changes, but the majority of the time it's the same limited places that are flown by G reg aircraft

56500 annual basic, 5000 pilot allowance, 5500 dual license allowance (if you've got a uk caa license too), around £10/sbh, there's also a London allowance but I can't remember what it is, about £100 extra a month net I think it was

Basic : £56500
Allowance: £5500
Annual leave: £2897 (28 days x £103.45)
Sector: £8662 (850 hrs x £10.19)
Pension: £3000
STN/LTN: £3000
allowance

Dual licence add £5000 if you have both EASA and UK licences

Basic increases £1500 every April. Stick all that in a UK tax Calc (minus pension) you’ll get your answer.

Hi all, does anyone know if I do not have a EU/U.K. passport (I have a visa that allows me to work in the U.K. only), would I be able to apply for the AFA cadet? I have only EASA license too. Thank you!

Is the UK sector pay tax free? If not, what tax free allowances are available for pilots joining an UK base who are not British and not resident in the UK?

That is not really a Ryanair specific question and is probably better asked in a financial forum, however you could start here:

  • UK Captain Salary is £147k or £144k if regional (if dual licence rated)
  • Basic £108,000 Allowance (uniform, parking, loss of licence, or do whatever you want with it) £6,000 A/L pay £2,897 Sector pay £14,714 (based on 850 avg hours) Pension £8,000 London Allowance £3,000 Total £142,611 Dual licence Allowance £5,000 Total inc DLA £147,611
  • The psychometric assessment is provided by AON - If you successfully join a course, this is reimbursed in full
  • Its a fixed 5/4 roster for duration of your Ryanair career
  • For Non-Type Rated Captains it is a €15k reducing bond (no payment reductions etc)
  • Loads of opps for fast track command & training dept
Hope that helps
Cheers

Currently out for ballot so a bit premature I'd say. Ballot closes on the 21th

This is not accurate and should be regarded as misleading in many respects. We all know that they are desperate for skippers, and the complete lack of any upgrades for their cadets and first officers due to no training staff means that they are even more desperate for lfs recruitment. The training departs are running with skeleton staff and the rate of departure is telling. New terms and conditions still keeps Ryanair as the poorest paid of the bunch. Only redeeming element appears to be their 5/4 roster. Just be aware that if you are expecting a LHS from the rhs, it's not going to happen for at least another few years. Many of the FO's are fed up with their promises and are seriously set to move on. Ryan doesn't care as they are filling up these losses with cadets rolling in. Would not be surprised to discover that the entry fees may be reduced to compensate. They need aircrew for their proposed expansion plans. If I was part of their terms ballot I would be turning it down as it's not exactly generous by any stretch of the imagination.

Since you are saying it's misleading, what are the salaries to the best of your knowledge? Looks like you just spread rumours

As you represent Ryanair I shall say that you and IamRyanAir indicate that salary levels that are constructed with inflated add ons. Anyone who has grey matter can see that they are misleading. However the really big statement that training is flourishing is erroneous. Ryanair has a lack of training staff and no command upgrades being run as well as none planned. The recruitment is solely focused on skippers. DEC is priority. Please don't not accuse me of rumour spreading I am just pointing out the facts of the matter. I am in training and are in contact with many working in my field spread over many airlines in Europe. I have time for RyanAir and believe they provide great avenues for prospective aviation people, but let's no pretend they have terms and conditions which are competitive. Ryanair provide a route and good luck to all who chose it. It's not for every one but it's a route all the same.

You spout drivel nonstop, other than good entertaining I suggest you to go back to deliver your training because your “facts” have no substance in real life. Whatever your smoking I’d love to have a bit for a fun night out..
