    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.
