Aye, not that that AA, although many God fearing and sober citizen's of the world have wished I joined.
What about the forum called Scanair, is that just for SAS pukes, or for joe six-pack as well...?
Well back to the books, say hello to everybody and hugs and kisses to FlapsForty..(We ought to say something really naughty just to get moderated a little now and then... )

TD, you old f..t,
Getting a bit boring after you stopped steering that 747 around South America, or is it the 767 course that is so easy that you have time for a forum visit again. Anyway, good to see that you are alive and kicking
Yes, cockpitforum cam to an halt, unfortunately. The hard core of posters was ot anough to keep the activity on an acceptable level. As you very well know, forums are fun for awhile, but it comes a time when you need to leave it alone. And then, one sunny day, we are all back on PPRuNe
Not that this Nordic section has much to offer. But as I can see, some of the old rebels are hanging around here, which could bring some interesting convesation to this d place. But remember what happend a few years back when the language took off slightly. But I am sure that if we get Flip Flop Flyer, Earl, An2, Bengan and the others to join forces, we can have some fun again. Sort of like an alternate cockpitforum But to do that one has to open a new thread. What was the name of that Bar on cockpitforum?

TD,
I was suprised to see you around again, and forgot to answer this:
Wow, big words, who is this guy...?
The main man is Bjoern Kjos, a former Starfighter pilot. When Norwegian started their operation, and some good month later, I thought this is not for real. As many, if not all, new operators they were fighting with the cabin factors for months. But they kept on trucking with more B737s and more new destinations. For many it was like they were expanding themselves out of trouble.
But if you look at them today you're probably going to be pd off for not buying shares at the early stages of their operation. They are doing good, if what you read is close to the truth.
I am just afraid Kjos is driving this bigger and bigger and not necessarily better, and when the share value has reached a certain level, he will sell out and leave. I can understand the sell out, but if he leaves that company the future is probably going to be very uncertain.

Betalt type omskoling

Hvis I læser denne artikel, kan man se flyvechefen for Norwegian Thomas Hesthammer udtale at han forventer at firmaet vil betale for type rating fra efteråret 2008

Betale for TR = en betrakelig lavere startlønn de første 3-4 årene. Så det vil nok fortsatt lønne seg å betale TR selv.

Aye, wise words:

Undoubtedly the daughters are already tucked away safely.
Even the ugly ones are not safe as long as there is beer and aquevit enough to drink 'em pretty.

Getting a bit boring after you stopped steering that 747 around South America, or is it the 767 course that is so easy that you have time for a forum visit again.
The 767 course was long and draining as I had forgotten most of what I never knew about the 767 anyway.

Driving 747s around South America was not a bad gig: Good food and pretty gals down there for sure: The latin beauties down South would trigger one mid-life crises after another, not good for my blood-pressure.

The other stuff we flew with that operator was mucho trips to Lagos from Johanessburg, we even got temporary basing in Jo-burg for a while.
The fancy hotel we stayed there gave the crews 50% off on food and beer.
With the hotel bar being infested by prostitutes it was never dull on the off-days.
Lagos sucked however, we did not bribe the right people and had to wait 8 hours for fuel on occasion: With an inop APU and no conditioned air and all the doors on the plane closed to keep mosquitoes and malaria out, we were rolling around in sweat only interupted by frequent ramp-checks by the local CAA.

We also flew quite a bit on China and Kazakstan. One could get Carlsberg beer in those places. The girls in Almathy was very friendly and many of them stunning. The place was kind of nasty in the winter however, not sure I would go back there if I had the choice.

So, uh what was this thread about again...?
Norwegian Air Shuttle?
Don't know a thing about them, just thought I should stop by and say hello.

I never forget FFF's short story on the B747 operation with TD as the captain, the best story read in this centennial.
Aye, FFF was smoking crack and never knew how to fly with the old dog in style and comfort.

The FFF may be good at telling stories but for a good time he should fly first class with the old Dog and would not ever look back.

LN! Or now DL good to see you back! Also being a former cockpitforumer shady kinda person I was sad to see the forum go. But as long as we can "keep up the good work" here, I guess it`s all good.

Concerning Rygge AD hours of operation, the NCAA have said that any extensions of these hours would not be considered. Good news for those who live nearby and like to sleep at night. I don`t think this will impact the hiring at NAS though, as they have put orders in on a large number of 737s.

TD, I was told by Earl the Pearl to say hi if I saw you on a forum again.

Passed Rygge the other day, enroute GOT-GMN @ FL"E6".
I noticed work is still in progress there, but it's already looking good!
Didn't realize how close to the E6 it's situated , until I passed by!!
How many are actually living within the closer areas to the airport?
Enough to impose time limits due to noise abaitments, I take it!?
Hope it won't hamper DY's expansion-plans too much.....


Mr Letterman..... Good to hear from you again!

An2,
enroute GOT-GMN @ FL"E6".

I understand the "E6", which means you're still not really airborne. Or am I wrong? But GMN....you are talking about GEN or OSL ? Am I wrong again? Life can be rough in this world of shortcuts

Looks like this esteemed forum is slowly turning into a cockpitforum re-union. Cool

Ay Hårek, Mr Letterman is right, I was implying OSL.
Don't know how I came up with that silly shortification.
Still not really airborne, no.
Unless one can count the air in the tyres of the V50 ?
However, it seems that very trip will be putting an end to my earthbound days!
...and here comes the thread relevance;
It's not Norwegian.
Nuff said!

An2,

Not Kjos Airways? Thought the red condom looking airline was the only one operating from GMN (). Only flying company worth working for, I mean. Ok, Ok, there is also someone at the old side (GEN) operating a King Air or something. Did you get a job with them?

.....hum-de-dum-dum-di-da....
Ain't sayin',...ain't sayin'......

But I would've loved to fly for Kjos Boyz!
Don't think that will happen in the near future tho'!
When that's said and done,...if everything goes like I hope it to, I'll be a very happy camper with this firm!!

An2, tried to PM you last night, but there were some hickups. But to comment, vaguely, yes I`ve only heard good comments about said company, and I think you`ll gain quite a bit of real world flying experience.
