I hope they will hire, BUT, I belive it when I see it!!
Officially they dont even know if they need pilots. They are missing pilots on line, but in SAS that does not mean they will hire.Politics!!!

SAS will need pilots. They are planning 100 sim courses/TR autumn 2008.

New Norwegian base?

According to media, Norwegian Air Shuttle will open a new base at Moss Airport Rygge during winter/spring of 2008. While Norwegian has confirmed this, there are rumours in the market that it is not NAS per se which will be operating out of the Rygge base, but rather FlyNordic, recently acquired by NAS. Anyone who confirm this as a fact?

Well... anyone heard of anyone in Norwegian who has been offered a chance to work out of the Rygge base? No!

Also a few other hush-hush-stories around which are strongly indicating that NAS will not operate from Rygge themselves. Too bad.

It has already been published in an interview with Kjos that DY will station two of their new 737-800's there.

Girls, girls,
I know a friend a mine has been offered to be based at Rygge, and he`s working for Norwegian as of november this year. So lighten up guys, your`re working for an expanding outfit with a boss who is actually a former pilot and has a love of flying, a boss who`s actually a visionary. Not to many figures like that in aviation management these days, treasure it. Try working for the arabs with a good mix of indian management blended in, that is a shock to the system, not for the faint hearted.

there is no rime or reason to base FlyNordic at rygge. Norway to be flown by NAS, sweden by FlyNordic and Poland by Polski...

indeed, if they should base a few 737s from FlyNordic at Rygge, unions will go ballistic.

Jeg har lest at Norwegian har bestilt 42 nye fly med option på 42 til ...stemmmer dette ?
Jeg bor ved rygge og det hadde vært meget bra å fått jobb der ....slipper å pendle til OSL.

Vet dere om det er noen som er fått jobb i Norwegian som "low timer" (dvs 400++ timer under belte) ?

Skal vel aldri si aldri i denne bransjen, men jeg tror det er veldig lite sannsynlig aa faa jobb hos Norwegian med low time for oyeblikket.

Vet att dei har veldig mange kvalifiserte kandidater i databasen, saa du maa nok ha en del erfaring og i tillegg hjelper det med en internal recommendation.

Men det skader ikke aa prove. Lykke til!

ja jeg vet, det å få en ok jobb er 90% "å kjenne de rette personene" ...men men får vel bare sende ut en masse søknader så får en vel napp et eller annet sted .

Norwegian

Norwegian krever 500 timer multi crew, er et krav fra deres forsikringselskap.

Du kan glemme å komme inn uten det for øyeblikket. Men du trenger ikke å ha 1500 timer totaltid.

Får krysse fingrene for at de starter et kadettprogram i stedet!!!

Kräver dom att man har Type Rating på 737? Står inget om det på deras hemsida.

- Common for all pilots:
o Valid appropriate JAR licenses
o Valid medical license
o Valid type rating on B737 300-900 (at time of employment)
o Fluent written and spoken English
o Fluent in one Scandinavian language or Polish (dependant of base) is an advantage
o No criminal record

Det var vel den du fant? BG fant den andre der det står tydelig at man må ha gyldig 737 rating ved ansettelse. Syns det kunne stått her også

Helt personlig tror jeg de, og alle andre større selskap, vil slite med å få folk med litt erfaring, og spesielt da operativ erfaring, de neste par årene. Når SAS igjen åpner dørene blir nok markedet sugd opp ganske bra. WF er igang nå . Så hvem ønsker da å måtte betale for egen kursing når alternativet er fast ansettelse fra dag 1 og en rating med på kjøpet?

Er vel fremdeles en del av nervøse sjeler som blir utdannet, og som kanskje ikke har gjort nok research av markedet.
Og kanskje noen som tenker kortsiktig, og tenker at det er en jobb de kan få, med base på en av flyplassene ved stor-byene.

Men la oss bare håpe at markedsutviklingen kommer til å gjøre det slik at bl.a. Norwegian må gjøre om dette med typerating.

Blir uansett veldig spennende å se utviklingen i luftfarten de neste årene!

Wow, big words, who is this guy...?

Seriously, I have been out of touch (still am) and don't know much about Norwegian and the boss behind it.
Not that I am thinking of applying, but who knows what the future will bring?
Perhaps I'll get homesick one day and just say to hell with it and move back to Norway?
(Would probably freeze my balls off so uh, nah will stay in Florida, Norway is for the youngsters who can tough out winters and snow storms, steely-eyed and gung-ho...Wideroe pilots come to mind, my hat off )

TD back to Noggie-land?!
That'll be the day!!
Probably the same day hell freezes over, or there-abouts.....
Seriously though, I'd love to fly for NAS, and Rygge would suit me just fine, being from "the blond" side of the border `n´all!!
500hrs multi-crew,.....dunno about that one....
..or rather, I do know people have gotten in with less not too long ago.

Hi Na2....Nah, not back-pedaling back North....Too f..cold for this tropical dude.
Just curious in the buzz around Norwegian.

Why is is so quiet around here? Cockpitforum is down and dead, right?

Where is the action these days.?
(Scanair something or the other?)

I am back in Texas on a 767 course, been flying 747s for the last 3 years..Back and forth, back and forth..No peace for this old soul.

How is Bengt Engel and them other no-good Swedes doing? And that Flatlander, Mr. FlipFlopFlyer, is he around stirring up muck?

Aye, back to the books, you boys behave without me now, ya hear?

So, you're not interested in NAS, I take it?!
I think it's about as good a company to work for, as they come over here. Apart from Wideroe that is. (Mustn't upset Earl and SlimShady!! )
I believe quite a number of Scandi-drivers are leaving Ryanair, to go back to Scandiland and to fly for NAS though, cause they never seem to run out of people to employ.
Off topic....
Back at "Not the drinking club" again then, on your ol' ship as I recall?
Cockpitforum has ceased to be, that is correct.
It hasn't lead to increased traffic at this place though.
Mr BE and the Flipster pops up every now and then, but generally don't make too much noice anymore. They've probably gotten married or something.....
Knold,...haven't heard anything from, or about him, in ages.
