I applied two weeks ago.

Haha. No, you are not eligible for that sort of stuff if you are working.

Yes, 2500EUR net is not very much money.
But it is enough to survive in Stockholm.
There is no requirement for you to live in the CENTER of town.

You would have to adjust your location to your pay.
And if you are a two income family you would be getting off quite nice.

Stockholm is full of students who survive from 950EUR/month
Around half of that is spent on rent.
On top of that beer, herbs, books and travel passes..

So you can manage!


Yes, if you are a guy who have been working abroad the last couple of years and waiting for a chance to return home, the salary is poor.
But for all straight from school it is OK starting pay.

On the other hand, type-rating mandatory so most have been working abroad with higher pay.

But then Norwegian has better deals if you get over to the "Core" after 2 years.

Hi guys,

Is here anybody who has already been invited for SAS assessment in 2013? If yes, be so kind and share your experience, please.

I know from my sources who have been there that a nordic language is a must.

You will sit down for 2 days of interviews with HR, and captains and they want to check your level of understanding nordic languages as I understand it.

Don't get me wrong, but I am just relaying information.

Sorry to put you off since I understand you are from the Czech Republic.

Dcoded, you will have to rent an apartment and will not find anything for less than 700 unless you move in with other people. And on top of that you must own a car, commuting with public transport is impossible for this job since the working hours are so irregular. That will cost you 250 in only taxes, parking and insurances every month. Add the cost of car, maintenance and fuel.

If you still have a loan for your type-rating and training. Then you must take new loans to keep up with the mortgage

That's a good rumour, and it hasn't even reached Scandinavia yet

Which asian airline?

I've heard, that non-EU airlines can't buy a majority post in an EU airline, so it might be a little tricky.

But it's a good rumour...

Not so much of a rumour according to statements made by Peter Norman, a Swedish minister in an intvju.

Just to make it clear İ would love to work for SAS. But like many İ just got a job at a low cost carrier which (if you only look at money) earns more per month.
And since i have the big as loan money is kindoff an issue.

That being said if there is any way for me to make it work and actually get hired i would probably take the job in a heartbeat.

That being said İ would love to get all the relevant data just to be sure. SO just to sum up the cash part (excluding the off days and pension)

Salary 27 000 DDK (approx 3600) this is before tax (please correct if wrong) => meaning with Swedish tax you have approx 2500,- netto with "free" health care.

Layover money varying between 500-800 euro netto per month (just read this somewhere not confirmed by an official source, feel free to confim or deny this if you work for sas )

This would give a total salary of atleast 3000,- per month.

Now i was wondering how quick do you go up in pay is that only with years in the company or also with flight hours. And do you get extra money on top of the initial base salary for hours you already have on type?

Hope someone can help me figure out if i can make it work since i would love to work for sas.

Thnx in advance

If you have quite a few lay-overs per month you may expect to get around 25000 sek net. I made more loading their bagage.

They do not take your previous experience into consideration and the salary increases with (I think) roughly 1600 sek per year before tax (appr. %30) so if you have intrests/mortgages to pay then I would look for something else, unless you can live in Stockholm cheaply (take costs of living in Berlin and pretty much double it if you own a car and go out for a beer once a week).

135 pilots to be hired by the end of the year and the rate increasing next year. Nearly all SAS pilots to be replaced in 10-15 years. A lot of activity the next few years!

Will this be for all bases and aircraft types?

I heard rumors of them trying to get rid of the first steps on the pay-ladder to be able to attract rated and experienced locals. Does anyone know if there is any truth or progress in this matter?

Rentals in Stockholm?? Haha! There is a 25 year wait for 1st hand rents so the only option is 2nd hand and you will pay 1000 + for a small flat.
I was only saying today to a mate "how does anyone on a small wage exist here?" I just paid 2500 for a worker to do 2 days!
Live here on a monthly of 2500? You are having a laugh??

People have over the years (justifiably) criticised the P2F mentality when talking about Ryanair/Easy Jet etc (little Johnny wants to fly a jet, so , he does now, & guess what, sitting in seat "minus 1F" he is paying more than any of the pax)

From what is written here about the SAS package , it seems SAS believe there are a supply of blonde/blue-eyed boys dreaming (& able to finance ) the same dream. Quite deplorable offer actually, better , surely (?) to join NAS, although a few guys have left us for SAS (shouldn't that be SOS ? ) So, either the package is not as portrayed here ,OR it improves dramatically in year 2, OR they must "know" (?) something we don't.
