Maybe, the question is why would they pick 6 guys/girls from ONE school, and all of them not having a TR on the CRJ, when it is very clear from the job advert that only people with TR on CRJ should apply!

This might have discouraged some, who do not have CRJ TR, but have plenty of hours/experience on other type!

When these things happens in "other European countries" we have one word for it, however when it happens in Scandinavia, where we are like "snow-white" it seems to another word for the same thing!

Questions should be asked by the relevant parties regarding this, it smells a bit like the moose has been out inviting his friends to the party, without telling the others about the invite!

Another interesting point with "Exphill" poster, this subject made you create an ID / new ID on PPRuNe - just for the purpose of answering this question!

We are talking about a company trying to save money, so they do not go belly up, where is the logic to take untrained pilots, an put them trough line-training cadet program and TR, which will cost much more money than employing people with loads of hours of experience!

It seems somebody is looking after their own personal interests with the companies cash, instead of what is the best for the company.

There is not exactly a pilot-shortage!!!

The ball-less "Sasser" had to create a new ID to hide behind just to throw shit around and that apparently is OK with you, but when Exphil creates one to give you a sensible and reasoned answer you question the motives.

I can figure out if you are just naive, gullible, ignorant or just disingenuous. Or perhaps a sorry mix of all of it. You and your friends remind me of a footballer after losing a match blaming it on the referee, the pitch, the weather, the ball, the spectators, on anything and anybody else than their own inability to get the ball in the net.

In other words a sore loser.

sorry for digressing from conspiracy theories, but does anyone know of someone holing a 737 TR who already has gotten an invitation for interview??
if so, how long did they wait for any kind of reply from SAS?

aviator 88:

A friend of mine (RYR FO) applied last week and was contacted within a few days to check for availability. No invitation for interview yet, new interviews to be held soon.

SAS needs copilot urgently, in less than the three month notice a lot of companies use.

Really, so maybe somebody could answer me why SAS responded with this email to me when I made a request to them If I could apply even if not CRJ rated!

These are facts from SAS team recruitment;

Du kan kun søge hvis du opfylder alle betingelser! Vi skriver tydeligt at man SKAL have typerating.
Søger du uden typerating risikerer du at din ansøgning bliver slettet.
Med venlig hilsen

I choose to accept that having good contacts will help you to get a job, stops me from getting bitter.

Soooo, back to the question many have asked, none have answered;

Does anyone has a clue how the assessment looks like?

Applied the other day for rated 737 F/O:s, no reply yet.

Sim is in a fntp2 737-style. Just basic stuff really. About the group/interview I do not know. You will get briefed well before going there.

The base salary of 28k kr, is there anything else on top of it except for the per diems? A net income of €2500 a month will not pay the bills living in Stockholm Is there any overtime payment of some sort?

Thanks TypeIV.
Yeah, that salary is not impressive.
I guess its the first step on the payscale and perhaps you get placed higher on the ladder based on experience, age etc etc.

Pure guess of mine but 28K cant be what they offer considering they need quite a few of us and at least three other operators in Scandinavia are hiring with higher salary (JT, Primera, NAS).
Not fixed posititions of course, but still...

The companies named (JT, Primera and NAS) are all on the bottomline, talking about salaries. WF and the scandinavian charter companies ( TUI, Novair and Thomas Cook Scandinavia) are all well above, especially Thomas Cook, with the best deal in market.
Remember that most all expansion in NAS is via contractors this days!

There is overtime payment, but overtime happens maybe once per year, so that is not gonna make you rich.

"Days off" can be sold, if the Company ask for it, and you agree. For the time being either 8 or 14% of a monthly salary per day, depending on how many duty hours the perticular day has. There's a yearly max number of days. But you can't really plan on this extra income.

Forgive me if this is asked about a hundred times before, but what is a normal rooster for a SAS FO? The "usual" 5/4?

5/4 would be nice, but now it's 5/4/5/3.

SAS recruitment


I have applied for a 737 type rated F/O. What I really like about SAS recruitment team is that they always answered my inquiries pretty quickly. On the other hand I don´t like the fact that I have never received more specific response. When I asked them about number of newcomers for 2013 season the answer was as follows:

I am not able to provide numbers but we will need many 737 pilots in 2013. Best regards Klaus Team Pilot Recruitment

My another question was about starting of their recruitment process:

We are interviewing this week, so have started. (sent to me May 8th 2013) Best regards Klaus

Hører rykter om at det er mange av de som har søkt som sier "nei takk" når de får høre betingelsene, spesielt lønnen. Er det noen som vet noe om dette?

This has properbly been afsked before but what if a pilot has, 3000tt 1500 hours 737 experience and some Heavy time as Well...as 1000 hours 777... Is thats pilot not suitable if he does not have a full "studentereksamen or equivilant"??

I dont know if "normal" work experience/4 year Danish Education counts Towords this. :-)

They pretty much want you to be eligible to do university studies. This usually means highschool education to be completed.

Unless you'r 22 years old and more or less straight out of flying school that salary is almost an offence - what a joke, sorry to say. Hope they get lots of "no shows" from the experienced ranks
