I think it's all a bit of a numbers game to be honest.

Over 6000 applications for just over 30 non t/r jobs - it means that effectively you have a 1 in 200 chance of being offered a job. I don't know what the odds were for actually getting an interview in the first place, but probably equally as long. I'm assuming that the rejections have been sent out because the limited number of courses are now full.

It's a shame but that seems to be the nature of the industry at the moment - very few jobs and very many applicants.

However, for those who were successful, it is a fantastic opportunity with a company that is moving in the right direction with a clear plan for the future.

I feel that between the two requirements (1000TT and 150hrs during last year) the second one is the "axe" for cutting people.

Someone can illuminate if during the application they were asking these 150 hrs or just "new requirement"???

I think there was a question in the application form "Do you have 150+ hours last 12 months?".

Over a thousand hours of experience, 150h in the last year AND still willing to self sponsor a T/R for a contract position. Yeah.

Had the same email,

770 TT, 162 hours in the last 12 months (FI). Can't help thinking if they wanted 30 pilots with 1000+ hours they should have just said so. Would still have had plenty of applicants.

If they have taken only 30 odd applicants, it's a bit heartless to build any hopes up in less experienced pilots thinking they might have a chance of gaining employment when in reality none existed.

I appreciate airlines like to test the market with all encompassing trawls such as this.

However, they would have known from the responses contained within the questionnaires the hours and experience of the applicants without putting so many through the online tests when there was no hope of subsequent employment.

This very Thread and the responses within it show how keen, hopeful, young pilots hang on every word - I did myself years ago.

Now to find it was all in vain leaves something of a bad taste in the mouth - in my opinion.

Not good PR, again in my opinion, but the nature of the modern corporate beast.

I think they are looking to bring back Scandi from Ryan, Susi and maybe get someome from Widerøye.
As well, check interest and market with fresh pilots for their future recruitment

Agree with the other posts, why ask for low hour non-rated pilots just to send responses like this out, on the plus side going through the online process was good practice.
