Can anyone tell me for sure if they still have the main/rc-segments? alot of rumours says that the unions agreed to have the same pay a couple of years ago wich will be the case for the new recruits.

The two-segment payscale is only for already employed. For newhires there's only one payscale, starting around 27-28k. However, for pilots flying the CRJ in CPH, there's a cap at level 7, which is the max level, as long as you are FO on the CRJ. When you transfer to other types, you'll jump to the level, where you would have been, if there was no cap, and continue the climbing the ladder.

There is a rumour that someone in SAS recruitment is also involved with the flight school in Roskilde where the 6 brand new pilots came from.

I am wondering if they got 6 brand new pilots, how did they apply?

Wasn't the requirement to apply that you had to be type-rated to apply? So if not type-rated, would you still have been able to submit the online application?

Maybe they couldn't find enough CRJ-rated people. Has anyone got any information on how many people they will need? Pretty much everyone I know that has applied has been invited to the assessment.

There might be some truth to that

without accusing anybody of nepotism, you may wonder about any relation (familie or friends) I'm just implying

But people are innocent until proven otherwise

If you have a good memory and google to assist you it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that someone with same last name as the guy in the video, is Chairman of SAS piloternes Pensionskasse and used to be a board member of the SAS pilot union. Currently a captain in SAS and has a son with same name as the guy in the video. The son is born in 1988 so he would be 24 just like the guy in the video. If it smells like fish...

Maybe his flying skills are as good as he claims or maybe he just has a dad who knows someone

Is this another conspiracy theory, or does it just show how far SAS is out of touch with 2013!

Rumours of this going on in the old days was quite big from what I can recall, brothers, sons etc.
I guess they prefer to keep it a family business!

Now I am just curious, where did SAS have the advert for these jobs, that said no minimum experience was required and no TR was required?

As far as I know, I never saw any SAS advert for these jobs, confirming that it was a free for all to be able to apply!
Or did I miss something?

The saying that seems to explain this best; it is not what you know that counts, it is WHO you know!

Scandinavia is not any whiter than Russia (trying to pretend all is done nice and fair - in Scandi-land, I think most can see this clearly now!

Personally I would not have applied anyway for CRJ position, but it does show something fishy has been going on! It's what many of us know from the past, family, friends first - it's the SAS way again!

This gets more and more fishy. Apparently also non-rated experienced guys were hired onto the CRJ.
It seems like the guys in recruitment used this opportunity to hire all their friends and kids into the CPH base.

I don't think it is in the interest of the governments to sponsor the type ratings of the SAS crews friends and kids, when there are many rated pilots out there to take from.

We are many who have been waiting years to be able to join the company and gained experience elsewhere, so it is quite disappointing that we did not get a chance at all.
With less A320 coming than MD80s going, it looks like it will be some time before there will be openings in CPH again.

I thought highly of SAS before and thought they had become wiser and was finally saving the ship they had been trying to sink for years, but I guess they have not learned anything.

If this guy in the video is so good at flying, why has he not been able to get a job for two years? His situational awareness is definitly very poor, since he should keep his head low with the way he got into SAS.

As the ongoing Ryanair saga has shown, it is perhaps wise not to let bitterness get the better of you and post claims that one might be held to account for later.

Yes sush.....!
Don't talk about it, let's all be politically correct!

I have the e-mail from SAS requesting only CRJ rated pilots to apply, so.... I am very curious how this happen!

It is not that is for me, I prefer to stay on the A320, however I would like to know how this "lucky 6" managed to apply, when it seems that was not the requirement in the job description!

However the evidence shown, does indicate having good contacts and family in SAS still gives you a big advantage to get into the company!

I know of few guys with lots of experience on other types, who are young, and who would love to get the change to "move" home working for SAS!
I guess SAS budget savings includes paying and taking risks on unexperienced pilots, while there is a huge amount of ex-pat Scandis just waiting for such a chance to get back home again!

I guess when they can just ask the taxpayers for some extra funds, it is not so difficult!
SAS does not seem to learn, and their failure to even remotely adapt to the very tough competition is what could be their biggest failure!

I mean a 25 - 27 year old, with 3000 - 5000 hours on A320 or 737, must be less risky investment for SAS, than 6 guys from basic school!

Let me guess, they did not fit the SAS profile for the "recruiters"

"Welcome to the SAS pilot application process, CRJ pilots.

(This process is for CRJ pilots only, holding a valid CRJ type rating)"

Conspiracy theories

I would suggest you lay all your thoughts about any form of conspiracies aside. As in any company there are a lot of relations between applicants and those who are in a position to pick new employees from the long list of applications. I would expect those who choose who will be called for the interviews, sim test and more have such an integrity that they are not influenced by anything other than the applicants qualifications.

If you would like to apply to SAS, think you are the right person and have the necessary qualifications as specified by SAS you should forward or update your application as soon as possible. SAS requires a lot of new pilots as of now, and as said earlier in this tread the chance for a rather rapid career towards senior captain looks quite good at the moment. The mean age of SAS pilots today will result in most of them being pensioners in 15 years.
