NAS Air

Been searching this site for a bit and haven't found a whole lot about them. Does anybody have any info on them? Or ideas of where I can find out anything.

Thanks in advance

NAS info

They fly A320 and E190s. Pilots are based in the kingdom. Had a friend of mine go over there for about four months, but it was too much of a culture shock for him to stay. He said the people at NAS treated him well. They are a low cost operation. You live on a compound or take the allowance and share a place with other expats. They used to advertise a 6 week on 3 week off rotation or live there full time.You can check www.nasaviation.com or go to www.flightglobal.com for job listings. Plenty of posts if you put NAS in the search option here.

I live in a compound with several NAS pilots. They tell me there is an Airbus fleet and an Embraer 190 fleet, and that the morale seems higher amongst the Embraer pilots. They also tell me they are set pretty well on copilots, but that there is a shortage of Embraer captains. If you have some left seat time in 190s, you might have a good shot at NAS.

NAS air WARNING !!!

NASair recently has been advertising that will reimburse the airfare ticket to pilots who show up in their interviews.

Fair warning to future applicants: Pilots who interviewed last March in Amman Jordan haven't seen a dime yet. On top of it, mr. Hamsa, the head of the HR, has stopped replying to emails.

I see NASair advertising this month for interviews in Athens through Sigma aviation and reimbursement for air fare is included again...good luck!!!

Don't know about the conditions there but if you plan to pay for your own air fare to go for the interview, don't expect them to reimburse you even if they advertise they will. We are still waiting for ours since last March

Just be warned if you pay for your air fare to go for an interview, don't expect them to reimburse you even if they advertise they will.
We kissed our money good bye after waiting for a month and a half and they stopped replying to our emails

Id also like to know if others are going in June. I got invited. I don't think I'll go unless they buy me a ticket up front.
