Looks like they require a type rating on the CRJ for the immediate recruitment and a 737 for the next batch. That's SAS adapting to the market I guess. I wonder how many will chance it and get type rated. Not many CRJ pilots around I guess as it isn't a very widely used type in these hoods. I for one would never pay to give a sinking ship a chance...
Best of luck to those who decide to go for it.

Hmmmm....even with a typerating it will most likely take you 6-9 months to be released for normal line flying.....after all this is SAS....they call it flight safety...😳😳

Oohh...sorry you SAS guys...of course whatever you do can't be wrong....I forgot that...
One captain recently went from A320 to long haul....five and a half month of linetraing...excluding the typerating....on a type which is really not that different from the A320....just ask the Thomas Cook guys....but I do admire your admiration for a sinking ship...👍

Do you have to add some trashy sarcasm to express your meaning.

I went from CRJ900 to A340, and I had 4 roundtrips of line training plus a line check - done in 4 weeks. That is a fact - I don't know what your "friend" did. Get a life!

Please let's try to keep this as a constructive thread discussing the new recruitment at SAS. Fortunetellers who actually know what they are talking about doesn't spam anonymously on forums. They invest and make a fortune on their predictions

Five months of line training?

Sinking ship.

Would never. Ever. Even think of going there.

Experienced captains getting the offer of going back to their former employer as FO on a crj based in cph on a worse contract than they have now. From those in that position I know no one who accepted it. Logic.

Proposition

Analysts have stated that SK needs to lower cost a further 30% to stay competitive and alive in the long run.

Does one join SK on the above T&C's with a relatively high probability of being made redundant in a few years.

Or

Does on join a ME carrier which expands like crazy with 3x take Home salary.

There are obviously differences. Waking up to a warm summer breeze or a crisp freezing morning.

If that Captain spend 5 1/2 months excl typerating, he sure is a special case

You seem bitter Mr. You comment on a question about time on linetraining, just so that you could squeeze in some bitter comments As someone said, get over it, and get a life

Hawkeye,

Well, I was not commenting on Viking101's post He may very well be right, that it is a sinking ship. But that was not my point,commenting on your first post, which first of all was completely factually wrong and when that was pointed out to you....out came useless bitter comments that serve no purpose in this thread It is hard for you, to talk like an adult, as soon as the subject turns to SAS , and that really stinks of bitterness. Move on, man.

Interesting then, the need you feel repeatedly, to throw bitter comments towards SAS,its employees,its flightsafety, and its training. And repeatedly make comments that are factually wrong When people that actually know, call you out on your wrong statements, you just go back to the bitter comments. Well well. Keep denying.
