Norwegian Air Shuttle Assesment

Does anybody have any feedback from the assessment on what to expect?

standard PC for sim assessment.
Personality + matrigma tests. (ability to solve logical problems)
Interview= Vmcg, Aft CG effects, drunk FO, ...
Quite straight forward...

I am told (but it is 2nd or 3rd hand) spatial orientation whilst entering/completing raw data holding patterns/radial tracking had caught a few out in the past.

Nope no kidding. When I joined 1 yr ago there was no Sim assessment . . . they very kindly assumed we could do that part. It seems that feedback from the trainers/Union pressure seems to have given them cause to reconsider that stance.

Story I heard were that more than a few Candidates when told to track inbound a VOR on the 180 radial flew an inbound course of 180 (on the 360 Radial) which was judged unsuitable for survival in Northern Norway.

So, strangely enough, back to basics. . . . . but you are right, that is only a part of what they are looking for.

Yes DEC, FO's no Sim ride.

Interview I am told hasn't changed much. Mainly personality/CRM with a sprinkling of sensibly pitched 737/general tech Q's, & a bit of Winter ops.

Just to add. DEC sim was on the -300, departure, RV to raw data ILS, Land. Then engine seizure on rotation, single engine procedural VOR approach (automatics available) to G/A then RV to FD only SE ILS to land. Bit like a mini OPC. Don't forget the command/people/management side, they want to see the whole package, it's not just about the flying.

Good luck!

I think the assessment has been covered quite well.

I am interested in applying to NAS as an experienced F/O with >5000 hours jet incl. B737NG time.

What about upgrades for F/O's? What are the requirements? Are contractors able to apply for upgrade to the LHS or is this only for permanent employees?

What about the take home pay. ppjn is showing a base of 3800 gross + 800 housing allowance + 500 allowances and 8 euro per block hour. Is the 8 eur per block hour included in the allowances or does it come on top.

I make this a gross pay of 5100 per month + 8 euro per block hour. Is this approximately what people are getting?

Thanks guys

Could someone please share what typ of question they ask during the FO interview? Any general ATPL question, or just the standard "why do you want to work for us" etc?

All I've heard of is some winter ops and some 737 questions, would someone mind to give some examples? Apparently it's very relaxed, but it still doesnt hurt to ask.

Thanks a lot guys

Waiting for interview date as DEC on 737 I have been advised that CAE PARC is now dealing with recruitment for NAS.
Interview should be in LGW.
HR + 1h30 sim par candidate + personality test home made before interview.
Any more details about that "new" selection process ?
Many Thanks.

A lot of upgrades for contractors. Actually permanent employees are complaining that all the upgrades are going to contractors. Required TT according to OM is >6000 hours if I remember correct. Also the current plan is to employ the contractors in Norwegian owned subsidiaries starting with the Helsinki based pilots around March if I remember correctly.
