    Pros

    Flybe is a great company to work for, should you like working in a fast paced environment where your ideas are truly listened to. It's a really interesting industry to work in and an excellent talking point!

    Cons

    You will be expected to deliver to often very challenging deadlines, though I guess this is true with all companies wishing to succeed.

    Pros

    Flybe is a great airline to work for, especially as a pilot just starting your career. The training is top quality, and the mighty Dash, although a challenge at times, is a really fun aircraft to fly. Friendly colleagues, many of which become family. You really feel looked after.

    Cons

    Off the top of my head, I can't really think of any.

    Training and trainers were great, left me feeling very confident about doing the job. Schedule not too bad for the type of role. Had so much fun and would go back
