Has anyone heard how tech and cabin crew are to be recruited?

Mate. Wear fishnet stockings, high heels, gaudy red lipstick and act like a prostitute and I'm certain you will get picked up....

Your right.

However, the great advantage of FBW a/c is you can't do many "tricks".

At least someone was thinking "ahead" when the designed the a/c.

Gee Prop, you won't even have to get changed for the interview! ;)

This perception is what worries me in the present Australian climate.

Airbus technology bites the ignorant and inexperienced hard. Mode confusion-three crashes and somatogravic illusion accentuated by the digital presentation another. Airbus has very sheepishly addressed the latter with CPIP and auto engagement of Flight directors on go around.

My point is that it would be disgraceful of CASA to allow a VB style introduction of Jetstar's 320. IE- Cheap and nasty endorsement programmes bought abroad .

With sound training the transition to Airbus should be seamless. But not the three week Virgin Blue style and encouraged garbage!

Interested to see no A320 type rating required.....:

Gnad I doubt whether QF would ever adopt the type of approach Virgin did. However I think you are selling us a bit short mate. 3 weeks is a bit light on. The simulator and ground school for the classic was around 3weeks plus another week for the NG coversion. Depending on experience we train lads for 4 to 6 weeks on the line. with EP's and CRM etc, It's closer to 3 months by the time they are finished.

I understand that cabin crew need to be able to satisfy the needs of both tech crew and SLF :confused:

You have to pay them boody $US20 to register!

Jetstar pilot recruiting has popped up on Staff CV

18th Dec 2003, 05:10
I thought that the interesting thing about the application was :

Must agree to work shift work...check;
Must agree to move at own expense...check;
Must agree to pay up to $50,000 for A320...not listed;
Must agree to sign two year bond for 50,000 big ones...not listed.

I would have thought these are big issues that potential employees would like to know about before actually appying.
