tocum,

If your CASA licence is the new Part 61 (not the old style one) and you have the right to live / work here you'll get an interview for sure. At the moment they seem to be targeting guys from Network, Alliance, VARA etc but I know for a fact the biggest issue they have is finding guys with the Part 61 licence...

Good luck mate - I joined 5 years ago and it has vastly improved. Great bunch of guys and gals to fly with and I find flight ops (notice I said I - some guys will still whinge like always) to be quite supportive. I'm in a small base though so that might help my outlook on things..based in SYD/MEL is a different story from what I hear from mates.

PM me if you want any further details.

@ high_to_low; yes indeed I have the new Part 61 lic. Actually, the right to live/work in Oz is gonna be the problem unless Jetstar sponsors for the visa.
Please check your pm.

@pilotchute; I don't want to burst your bubbles, the MTOW of the Q400 is 29,574KG- heavier than u think & please stay calm in case i misinterpreted your msg!

Pilotchute, a Q400 is a big aeroplane. It is roughly the same size and weight as many regional jets. It's well over 20T.

I'd suggest some humble pie.

And compared to something like a King Air, a Q400 is a heavy turboprop.

Yes the Q400 is 29T, not sure why pilotchute thinks it is only 20T. Apart from the obvious differences between it and a jet, the Q400 is a great stepping stone from a prop to a narrow body jet.

Some may mock but 'heavy' time can mean the difference between a candidate successfully and smoothly transitioning onto other more complex and weightier types or not quite making the grade.


An old sim instructor of mine once commented that he could tell those pilots who had flown heavy singles like 206s or 210s compared to those who had only operated light pistons such as 182s by their finesse.


In fact said same sim instructor said his most impressive student was a young Russian who had Tu-114 time!

There's always one.

As far as turboprops go, the Q400 is a heavy one. It's also a medium weight catagory aircraft. Meaning similar separation standards for light aircraft following it, to a narrow body jet.

It's not a Boeing or a bus, but it requires a similar workload and standard to fly it.

So has the ADAPT test now being used in the selection process replaced the SHL psychometric tests? Or is it in addition to?

Yep, SHL hasn't been used for quiet a while, and IMO ADAPT is a much better tool for pilots

Where do you actually apply to JSTAR A320 DE FO position? I can't seem to find that position on the careers page.

Roger that. I would say they are having a cleanup of the applications on file. Probably be re-advertised soon.
