RUMOUR has it that two 737 management pilots are going to enter Jetconnect as direct entry captains. Oh well, at least the stage lengths allow plenty of air to stay in the fuel tanks.

And those poor unsuspecting sods thought they were free of the man that thought they were air tanks (not fuel tanks!).
God help them.

Who was the other?

Don't worry! "I'll look into it!" Isn't that why he was called the Mirror Man?

Probably worried about failing the upgrade! :)

A little bird tells me that they aren`t the only ones who`ll join as DEC`s.

They are all ready operating.

Yes you have to live in N.Z

Not sure how many but 5 crewa per a/c is usually a good bench mark.

As to type rating, I don't think it's something they've had to think about as there are still plenty of experienced AN 737 pilots to cover their needs.

they are looking to recruit another 25 pilots over the next 4 months, you can be interviewed without a type rating but if selected then you will have to go and get one.

Tis true me lads. Witness recently a very experienced training captain on type was asked. "Would you be prepared to take an F/O position"!!!!!!!!

Mate, do yourself a favour. If you haven't already have a look at pilotstaffcv.com. They provide little bit of info on what the requirements they need, bases etc. etc. And yes, most of the pilots are ex AN, however understand they are putting on locals now. Hope that helps.;)
