Norwegian info

Hello everyone. U.S. pilot with E.U. Passport looking for employment with Norwegian. Lots of questions...
I have lots of time (15,000 hrs almost all jet), 7,400 B737 SIC, but only RJ PIC time (~3,500). What type and seat can I apply on?
What bases are likely?
What's the pay?
Roster?
Training, where, how long, paid?
Capt Upgrade, how long? Possibility to be hired in the left seat?
More questions but those are the main ones.
Thanks!

EASA ATPL?

It does not says in your post, but first step in this direction will be to obtain EASA ATPL which involves 14-15 theory exams that cannot be avoided...

You are correct, I didn't say and I don't have it. I would take it and hopefully pass it if I decided to get serious about trying with Norwegian. I guess I'm still in the phase of gathering information to see if I would really want to try

With your experience you could aim much higher than Norwegian and T&C will than be much better as well, so I am sure that it will get tempting and attractive... Contact e.g. BristolGS as they offer online tuition for ATPL easy and convenient and take it from there... there are EASA schools in USA too maybe something convenient to you...

it was a Personality Test, Verbal Reasoning test, Multitasking test, and sort of a what would you do in different situations test..

sbg007,

Here you go...not sure what seat you're pondering but this'll get you in the neighborhood. I've seen pay quoted somewhere but now I can't find it again:

First Officers B787 US, FLL - OSM Aviation Group

You OK with this part ? I don't see a dollar figure:

Training cost bond:

Thanks Zondaracer, appreciate the figures. Presuming $11,100 gross and one looses 35%-39% to various taxes you are looking at $7,215 to $6,771 NET and with no pension or bonus this will definitely be one of the lowest paying left seat job anywhere in the world.
Does anyone have a more accurate NET figures after all the taxes?
Also what about medical coverage?
Thanks in advance.

Hi,

Regarding the 787 contract, does anyone know what the NET pay is for LGW based Relief Captain?
Also...
Are the 10days off a month guaranteed at your home base (LGW for example), or can/do they roster them down route?

Is car parking and uniform paid for?

What is the expected time to upgrade from Relief Captain to Captain?

Thanks
