In qantaslink it matters little as to whose AOC an aircraft is on, the Q400's are all on the Sunstate AOC but both Sunstate and Eastern pilots fly them, it depends where they are needed... so if Qantaslink need jets on the east coast it would matter little that they were on Networks AOC, if they are required in QLD then Sunstate pilots would operate them if south of QLd then Eastern pilots would operate them.
and that's straight from the Townsville refueler.....

Hullo Chaps,

I get a strong sense young Compylot lives under a bridge and would turn to stone in direct sunlight...

Straight home and don't spare the horses.

The jets aren't ever going to Sunstate or Eastern but to the new budget carrier. The people with a jet AOC and F100 check and training already in place. When are you guys going to wake up to the standard Qantas ploy?
It's only been going on since 1991!

So any updates on bases for the ATR's? Sounds like BN is a definite, any others?

I hear the capital was rumoured.
Is anyone any clearer on the contract conditions? SkyWest EBA or not?

So it is less than a month till the announced June arrival of ATRs in Virgin colours. Is there any more news on the matter? You would think one or two would have arrived by now if they were to start operating in June.

I've been told Brisbane first. So I guess that's the place to look for them?

I seriously doubt they poached anybody except maybe one or two for the top C&T/Fleet positions and possibly not even them. The rest of the crew would have come from the application/Interview process.
Give it away Jim

Two guys leaving from REX to Virgin ATR. Some others applied but haven't heard anything. Even from some who have C&T experience.

Bases in Brissy, 6 months as FO before conversion to Capt. Neither had ATR time.

I imagine more will leave if the opportunity arises.

Base Capt $105K I heard.

Somehow the first two are delayed off the production line. Odd for an old product no? Start date now late August I hear. Should give the boys at Skywest a chance to catch their breath...

True Mr Hat, there are Ejet Captains who have approached the Company about taking on Training and Checking positions and Ejet FO's are keen on command slots.
