Does anyone know how long it takes at Norwegian from cadet to command? Is it as fast as Ryanair?
Also is there anyone on the inside at Norwegian know of any new bases being looked at for the new arriving aircraft?

Fell free to PM me if you prefer.

New RYR contractor salaries in German bases rumored to be 5500€ for CP, 2800€ for FO after Irish tax and German social insurance. Go figure.

And are FOs reaching anywhere near the 900 hrs per year , by your information you would realistically be looking at 4-5 years approx.

Any word on future bases? Many thanks for your reply @Kulito as it is very hard to get answers on said airline on this forum. Are you currently working for them?

You sound disappointed that it might take 4-5 years to get the only promotion you will ever achieve in aviation. Hopefully there is more to it than hours logged even at Norwegian.

Maybe you should read the current threads on Norwegian in detail first before making a decision for no better reason than the ostensible first to command.

I have read all the threads and thanks for your post @jaxofmarlow

It was more curiosity of how long it could be done in , not dissapointed at all.....I'm not trying to join an airline because of the fastest route to command etc. but the more information you can gather the better or more "eyes wide open" you are if you take the leap to join.

As you can see I am also interested in possible new bases or expansion etc.

Maybe my post could of been written a bit better so as not to be taken up wrong.

Maybe mere corporate ignorance from the salmon-smokers, or perhaps a slightly deeper insight into their "core values" than they would wish you to perceive. . . . .
