Would a second Q400 sim not help the issue? Is it cheaper to send their crews to other countries or have them on "training reserve"?

Direct entry commands?

Why are they advertising for direct entry commands?

Interesting....I don't recall the union mentioning anything about this in their latest correspondence. Didn't think we needed captains at the moment anyway, I'm certainly not working nearly as hard as the FO's!

I'm curious, why do they not have RNAV as a requirement?

Q400's getting dropped from Hobart. 717 to be based there doing Melbourne shuttle and possibly direct Adelaide.

2 more 717's after the next 5 with possibly 8 more after that if they can find them.

Talk of PER base to close with Network and Cobham to take over the flying once Network get RPT AOC and more B717's arrive.

Bean counters apparently not impressed with the extremely low work rate of aircraft and crew. Crew only doing 25-30hrs a month doesn't wash with the new JQ-style of operation.

Bringing those 2 Q400's back to the east coast would support the rumour about a delayed delivery of aircraft #30 and 31.

My understanding is that aircraft #30 will be an engineering spare when it arrives as there are a number of aircrafts due for heavy maintenance.
