Does anyone know what Skippers pay a C441 Conquest Captain in Perth?
So can anyone answer my previous question?

John Tilley used to pay me about $30K/year back in the mid-80's so you'd hope it's more than that!

but if the early signs of financial stress coming from our largest customer are anything to go by, we may not need to. The Wenzhou financial crisis (as a barometer of the PRC economy) suggests we may see a glut of qualified mine site workers.
PRC GDP growth dropped from 9.5% to 9.1% from Q2 to Q3 2011.

So a SLOWING in GROWTH not a contraction though is it? See below.

China GDP Growth Rate

Even if there is some slowing of demand, initailly it is reflected in the commodity price, most mine sites around the country are not at full manning levels.

Remember that some of the big projects Gorgon gas, Wheatstone, Broome gas plant are only in either early development or have not even broken ground yet.

A slowing in PRC growth will not result in lay offs from mines, perhaps slower recruitment but that is all.

LNG exports are looking healthy.

North West Shelf Australia LNG - Home

Japan is by far our biggest LNG export customer.

Australian Liquefied Natural Gas

How is their economy looking?

Japan GDP Growth Rate

Still growing at an annualised rate of 6%.

Fair enough Bula, thanks.
But as a rule when we talk income we only talk base pay and any bonuses that are not based on flying hours, after all, if you walk into a bank for a mortgage they will not usually take into account overtime and working on days off.
I hear you on the pineapple, but I've been lucky to work for operators that supply the pineapple ( and some even ask which end you want inserted first

With most of the figures in this thread being over 12 months old, perhaps an update is needed?

Hongkongfooey,

Re your comment that HKG was 'just awarded 3rd most expensive city in the world for expats.'

According to Mercer Consulting HKG was 9th (March 2011), down from 8th in 2010.
According to The Economist Intelligence Unit, and ECA Intl it wasn't even in the top 20.

Statistics and damn lies Ramius.
Have any of these turkeys actually lived in these places, and what exactly do they base their " liveability " on ?
We had a modest flat in HK that cost 1.4 mil AUD, sure KA were paying for it but we could not possibly afford what we have in Australia. Milk was $3 a litre, bread double the price of Oz, I did my own little comparo and the average grocery bill was around 30% up on Coles or Woolies, that is to eat non Chinese fruit and veg and eat like an expat. Fuel was just under 2$ a litre. Yes u could by beer from the 711 for $1.50 which is great if you and your family live on beer. Even child education is more expensive than what is avail to Oz citizens, and that's with the education allowance.
If you want to talk simple " liveability " then I am earning 1/2 as much, have a house twice the size, 2 cars, kids going to good schools AND we get to breathe clean air, but hey, nobody seems to put health high on the " liveability " list (WTF?)
I almost wet myself when HK beat (I think) Sydney or Melbourne in liveability, one of the reasons being the Australian cities were too " sprawled " out. Who would have thought living in a city where the population density is well over 10 times that of Australia was a bonus ?
Cheers
PS the 3rd most expensive city in the world was based on expat living costs, not wether or not you thought living in a 50 storey hi rise was a good thing

248K for a 320 line driver, is anyone going to call the wind up/BS alert on this one ?
80k in o/t seems a bit of a stretch

With O/T etc, VAI B777 SFOs are making more than VAA Ejet captains.

Post facts and no one believes you.
I would consider that underpaid but I shouldn't expect any better on this site

You're full of brown smelly stuff.

Jetstar have not issued group certificates yet.

But (and I do say but), captains are getting at times close to 220k. They work pretty hard for this and the lifestyle isn't great to enjoy the spoils to earn it.

Isn't it an ATO requirement that Group Certificates (now called a Payment Summary) are issued by July 14th?

Either yours is lost, Jetstar are breaking the rules (surprise surprise) or you are also full of said excrement.
