Flyr is hiring in Norway

I wonder if they'll prioritize ex-Norwegian drivers over others looking for a 737 job in Europe with an EASA license and right to live and work. By the way what's the story on the right to live and work in Norway for people coming from one or another EU member state?

The position is mentionned as "non commutable" and they will operate mostly domestic flight. So I believe they are looking for people from Norway, eg ex-pilots from Norwegian.

As long as someone is willing to live in Norway and accept a not commutable contract I don't see why preference should be given to ex-employees of any given company.

I’ve not checked, but I think you will find you need to speak at least one of the Scandinavian languages to work for them.
And without checking, they will take pilots with experience in Norway and North Norway operations. That flying is a bit more challenging that most other flying in Europe.
This means ex Norwegian and ex SAS pilots.

Then put a requirement to speak the local language, but restricting applications only for people coming from certain companies, why? What if a norwegian pilot was laid off from Qatar or Emirates, would he have less rights to be hired?

What's wrong with placing preference of your own nationals during such difficult times?

Did you read what I wrote? I have no problems with that, go for it, but I don't see why you have to discriminate norwegian people based on the company they worked before. A norwegian pilot that used to work for Emirates or Qatar should have the same rights of a norwegian pilot that worked for NAS.

He does, except the EK guy is not current in Norway ops. North Norway has special aircrew qualification requirements. EK pilots are not B737 rated either, so why would Flyr take him over a fully rated and qualified B737 pilot?
They will do this a cheaply as possible, that means ex Norwegian or ex SAS crew. Scandi ME pilots are further down on the list.

You make it sound like you need moon landing experience. All those things can be covered in the OCC, sim and line training, which are going to be needed anyway for any new entrant. Any half competent experienced pilot can fly in scandinavia in the winter, let's be realistic here.

That statement shows me you don’t have a clue what you are talking about. Scandinavia is more than Oslo, Stockholm and Copenhagen.
But why would a start up airline pay for something they can get for free? Or with minimum training?

Flyr just raised 600 million NOK today. Planning for 28 aircraft.

May I ask about your experience in Northern Norway during wintertime, Dirk85?

I was based in Moscow, Kiev and in the Baltics, flying regularly in most of siberia, all the -stan countries and plenty of norwegian airports. Is that enough?

And for the record my interest in applying for this company is less than zero, just to be clear.

Right, you are one of those who doesn’t know there is a world beyond airlines, such as business aviation, where planes have speeds, weights and characteristics very close to many airliners. But sure, flying to Tromso, Kirkenes or god knows where in a 738 takes super special skills that are not achievable by an average Global Express or Gulfstream pilot.

I am out, good luck to all

Oh I do, but Im not an expert at everything! BUT, since you are so experienced in Northern Norway and THEN brag about how easy it is. It tells me a lot about you..
Im not saying it requires astronaut-skills either. Im saying it takes more than just any half decent experienced pilot with an OCC and Line-training.
Just because you have been in and out of those airports a few times doesnt mean you know it all. Take it down a notch will you? Its not that easy as you say. On a sunny day, of course it is.

Im reacting to someone who thinks he knows it all.

Let's put it in a way that you can understand. Any pilot with more than a couple of thousand hours (5000 is the minimum for the lhs from what I see) with average skills, proper discipline, the support of a competent training dept and and decent sops can handle winter ops in Norway or anywhere else for that matter.
I did, and I am nothing if not an average pilot at best.
Now, I can understand that it might hurt the ego of someone, but I am sure you will cope.

Most guys i know in the charter industry (mostly 737 and A320) flown all over Norway all the way up to Svalbard and it was mostly first time for all of them when they were scheduled to do so.
