JS - I don't know if your a pilot or a troll, but to talk down your profession in such a way, makes you a disgrace to it.

Norwegian Application

Ive received the email re : online assesment link. Anyone care to PM me some details of the actual test and if there is anything online that is useful prep?

Ive never had to do anything like this before, as ive not changed jobs for many years. Its was a face to face interview and sim check last time i applied for anything. Not sure what verbal reasoning proves for guys with 15000 jet hours !

Any info appreciated

Didn't the NLH package just get a 15% uplift?



Strikes me NLH have benefitted from a bunch of senior guys joining who are just looking for some pocket-money. Right place, right time. These guys don't need the money but they act as a brake on T&C's. Bit like when a previous airline took on a bunch of newly retired 55 year old BA retirees...

Is this "normal" supply and demand? Your call...

Southwest obviously pay their pilots peanuts and just happen to be somewhere where everybody wants to work. I'm fairly sure it is run by managers who understand the wisdom of JS.

I'm also pretty sure there isn't another industry in the world where there is downward pressure on T&C's.

SR71, you couldn't be more wrong about Southwest, they are one of the highest earning pilot groups in the U.S. with arguable the best contract.

Anecdotal evidence indicates that NLH are recruiting for a holding pool that will provide a base of pre recruited or potential recruits, who can be signed up, providing the airline gains greater access to the US market.

If this is not the case, then there will be nothing offered to the hopefuls.

Its been rumoured that training bonds will be taken from applicants before formal employment is offered. Therefore its possible that holding pool pilots
will be out of pocket by upto €40,000 while waiting.

It could be a costly and lengthy wait .

The comments on here are becoming ridiculous. The bond is for the type rating not the job. You can't be asked to pay to go into a holding pool. These fantastical statements are becoming quite tedious. Useful constructive comments pleeeeaaaase.

Devil

I am new here, but...

Is Rishworth the only agency for Norwegian?
As I understand that Rishworth works more for themselves/the-airline, than maybe another agency would?

MASSH,

These agencies are indeed a real "cancer" for this industry. However they only exist and survive thanks to the airlines they represent. The specificities of these agencies and their way of running their business have been discussed at length in the past but suffice to say that Rishworth is to be avoided like the plague!

I was contracted to Rishworth a few years back and found them very helpful, I would still be with them had things beyond the control of myself & Rishworth not forced an end to the contract.

It may help you to know that the other company acting on this contract was Parc, all the pilots contracted to Parc wished they had used Rishworth due to the problems they had with Parc.

A lot of pilots expect far too much from a contract agency and voice their dissatisfaction on these pages.

A bit of help

as for the taxation policy in the UK with this contract, has anyone actually got any figures of how their tax has been? Has it been better than expected or worse?

And with the new 10,600 "tax free" allowance, will this not make its easier, plus if you wife, girlfriend, boyfriend, partner (whatever) doesn't work you are entitled to their 10,600 allowance to, this adds up to 21,000 "tax free" on your salary- obviously you have to got though the tax man for this but it is allowed.

Helps when my wife's a trained accountant!

I don't know where your wife trained as an accountant but in the Uk, your spouses tax free allowance is not transferrable to you

As of this new tax year you can share your tax free allowance with your partners- I'm not 100% how it works but she was told by an ex-colleague that this is now possible. Especially those that are on low income, I'd guess you'd have to speak to an official tax advisor to get the "actual" ruling on This.

You are partly correct. As of this year one earner in a low income family can transfer up to 1060 of their unused allowance (tax saving 212) to their spouse provided that the spouse is not a high rate tax payer - so that rules most pilots out of that juicy 212.

I must add that I'm not a tax advisor but all this stuff is on the internet.

That would make sense- when she told me I thought it sounded to good to be true, and with uk tax it normally is! Well the extra 212 will go towards my bar bill each month!

Either way I've applied for DEC is there anyone else who has applied lately, wat was the timeframe of them getting back to you?
