Employment Situation For Pilots
last update
  Current Situation:  
Hiring Boeing 787 fleet 13/Jun/18
Expect around 750-800hrs flown a year as an FO and around 850-900 as a Captain. Continuous opportunities for those who would like to try temporary bases on the 737-Max. You can be "borrowed out" but still keep your normal contract. 100% voluntary basis. Rostering is still often near FTL, but is getting better as more pilots are hired and expansion is slowing down. Collective agreement is still to be seen in Spainsh bases after years of waiting, but are in place everywhere else... 11/Sep/17
  Overall Situation (+ve/neutral/-ve):  
Positive   13/Jun/18
