Not upset at all, mate. Just trying to inject a little truth into the story.

TL refueller tells me the EOI from within Virgin Australia for training and check secondment to Skywest on the ATR has exceeded what both companies thought it would be. Looks like more pilots are chasing lifestyle rather than big jet flying.

I see ATR positions were advertised on 23Nov with a closing date of 30th Nov and now again today with a 2 week window.

I was just curious as to how many applicants and with what experience levels they are getting, does anyone know???

Was surprised to see another advert as earlier in the year there seemed to be many well qualified t/prop Capts and FOs, some with ATR time all applying for these positions.
I figured they would be swamped in a week with at least 1-200applications, ( probably the same as for Perth based positions??)

What was the Virgin-liveried '72 doing in Perth late last year? Spotted parked up as I came in on a charter. Never saw it again.

HSC is not an issue if you have gobs of experience and turbine time.

They must be pretty picky!

Over 7K with over 50% Turbo Prop and C&T experience. HSC over 90 points, not even and acknowledgement of my application!

I think the requirement for "A minimum of 2 Instrument Ratings" may cull a few applicants!

Does anyone know where I can find the terms and conditions for the ATR crew? I can't seem to find it on the AFAP's website nor the Skywest's.

Base salary yes...but the Sunnies EBA is pretty condition rich, which helps top up the pay packet every fortnight Late evening holding into Brisbane is helping crews with the call in allowances that's for sure

A few mates have also received phone calls so the deal is on!
Good luck fella's, we need to see airlines hiring as the industry is really stymied.
