When you have 35 flight hours you can choose to either continue on to Captain or

Cargo First Officer. If you choose Cargo First Officer you can only continue on to

Cargo Captain (skipping Captain), you will also be subject to board approval.

Cargo pilots are still allowed to fly normal pax routes.

 

Type rating / certification rules:

  • Failure to follow instructions from the instructor will result in immediate failure.
  • Upon failure of type rating / certification minimum 1 week cooldown and 2 hours in previous certified plane (exceptions may be made).

  • Damaging a plane more than 20% in a single flight.
  • Failure to listen to board of directors

 

Consequences:

  1. Warning.

  3. Loose type rating.

Routes:

FlyViking does flight numbers a little different than usual, we have gone for a more “route” like style. This means that a single flight back and forward will have the same flight number with a letter behind it, so a simple back and forth flight would be:

FLV001A-FLV001B

Instead of:

FLV0001-FLV0002

We have chosen to standardize instead of only doing longer (multi leg) routes like this.

New routes/flights can be made/requested here.

 

Maintenance:

As mentioned in the company policies all aircraft need to be serviced before they reach 80%. Furthermore aircraft should be serviced after any major aircraft failure.

We have several maintenance centers in Norway, they are all intended to be used for one manufacturer. Aircraft from other manufacturers should be serviced at the Embraer center.

Airport:

Manufacturer:

ENGM

Boeing

ENVA

Airbus

ENBO

Embraer

 

(These are guidelines, not rules. If we are in a pinch we will use the first available maintenance center)

Cargo Operations:

Packages and routes are managed by the pilot flying them.

Routes are dynamic, they need to be made and deleted by the pilot flying them.

flight plans should start with CAR instead of FLV.
