A J41 Command for an Instructor??? You have made my day with that little gem. Well done.
Who would offer a Command on the J41 or Metro, to someone with no multi crew and no turbine time, let alone no RPT experience?
Not Brindabella, and no other reputable RPT operator I know of.
Have we put any of their instructors into the airline?
Yes. 7 have gone over in the past 3 years.
One didn't make it through the endorsement (ended up worling for Macair as a capt on the Saab
), 3 have moved on, one is a training captain on the Metro, one is doing a Metro command upgrade in Jan, and the last is an FO on the J41.
Finally, We have just upgraded Robbie to make it 8. He is currently doing his endorsement and will start flying in Jan.
You put the effort in, and do the job properly as in instructor and show some initiative, and it will happen.
You do the job half-heartedly and just sit back and expect it to happen, then it never will.
At Brindabella promotions are earned, they not automatic.
Now back to the thread..
How many new instructors did we take?
