theres nothing special about flying jets. Impulse started with beech 1900s and now they fly A320s and 787s.

There are plenty of unemployed jet pilots both local and overseas Aussie expats who would jump at this, which would also satisfy any issues CASA might have with lack of jet experience in the operation.

Sounds like it would be a near full service carrier with a low cost base. This might be the kick in the pants the Aussie domestic market needs to break up the comfortable duopoly.
