SHVC,

The difference is as follows:

A) Two roster periods per finical year can be reduced to 9 days off, But you still get minimum 132 days of per calendar year.

B) You can be rostered up to 8 Available days per finical year. These day still come out of your total work days so your not doing any more work just being rostered differently.

For these two things you get paid an additional $5.78 per duty hour.

You are right about the salary starting at $101,075 for a Level 1 FO. But I don't know were you are getting that they are required to be hired as a flexi line pilot?

I think you will find that they will be full time pilots.
I have no information on the contract that will be offered which is why I said they may be hired under flexi-line. This is based on the fact that most DEPs have been recruited on FL over the past few years as a matter of course, if there has been a recent change of mindset/policy in flight ops management then great.

Hours in OZ at about 900hrs per year.
Average line Capt pay 250,000 - 275,000
Average line FO 160,000 - 180,000
A few bonuses and a fair bit of flying in there...........

Are Jetstar Aus pilots really doing 900hours a year or is that just Melbourne based pilots?

Lots of hours around at the moment, most of the hours are on the east coast. Some SYD FOs are going to hit 200k with overnight allowances included, not including Super.

Looks like requests for the first round of psychometric testing have been sent out...

I wasnt lucky enough this time round.

I can only assume the interview process will be staggered so fingers crossed for the next intake...

Do you know of people actually receiving psychometric test invites?

LongLats - one of our pilots at work received the email earlier this week. Not sure if its to be completed online or as part of the interview process on the day but I guess it doesnt really matter.

I heard a number of VARA drivers are jumping ship too...good on em, definetly better than redundancy given the recent reduction in their ATR fleet.

So because "at least one ATR pilot has gone to QLink" that means guys are loosing their jobs?! Not one ATR,ejet or 73 pilot has been asked or offered redundancies.

He/She just jumped ship for his own reasons.

If only you could see into the future.

I know one guy who's jumped from VARA to Air Naru. From what he tells me they are hardly leaving in droves or threatening redundancy. What type of experience are the people getting replies working with?

Hey,

Any updates on guys/girls getting interviews at JQ lately? It's all gone a little quiet! Surely they must be running low on FO's with Qantas starting to take pilots back??

Hey Chips there were a few groups doing interviews at the Qantas training centre at Airport West recently, can't give you numbers its second hand info but apparently experienced applicants not cadets.

Has anybody on here been invited or heard from them? I find it a bit weird that people seem to vaguely know of people progressing through the recruitment process but I'd love to hear from someone directly who's had contact from Jetstar since throwing their application in.

Do you have any evidence of that though? I'm told the entireity of VARA applied and to my knowledge none of them have been offered interviews either.
