Don't forget Toofar has a hard studied for MBA gained in three days from a highly regarded tertiary institution in another Western Pacific country. He must know best.

MBA ?

As reported previously 4 cadets have resigned whilst completing their command ground school.

What has not been fully reported is why they resigned.

Until now a cadet was deemed to have completed their cadetship after 10 years or first command.

Rules have somehow changed. These guys were told they would still be considered as cadets until they they received a command on the jet fleet.

So a new unpublished C scale was going to be applied to them on the Dash fleet as command cadets.

They met with Simon Says and rejected his bait that their conditions would be reconsidered. Read a leopard never changes his spots and elected to leave.

In the mean time PNG Air are making it known they will take on anyone from Poxie regardless of the threats of political interference.

Interesting times to say the least, especially with the upcoming hearing and decision.

Economic salvation off the back of the cadets, bet that really helps the bottom line. up there with recycling paper.

Instead of paying the pittance to the cadets (a new national pilots wage) they should look at a redistribute the salaries of the 767 Captains and see economic sense of flying Captains with First Officers instead of mostly Captains. An advantage of the "Big Men" I suppose, not bad considering many of them were cadets in the past.

Another lifetime ago (In the early 90's to be exact) when I was pushing beat up, high time Bongo vans and ancient (a) model C402's about the PNG skies, flying for Pixie (which was then well run) was viewed by me and others, a treasured and respected job!

How times have changed!

Edited to add; If I have already posted such sentiments; My apologies!

When the new contract was forced upon the pilot's there were 233 pilots, 110 have left.

There have been new hiree's since then.

Nobody has seen a seniority list for a very long time I’m told.

Today was D Day. The Court case has been heard. By all reports an amazing day for the pilot's.

I have been asked to postpone any details until the pilot body has been briefed.

I will honour this request and post details tomorrow.

Words and actual actions have two meanings here in PNG.I don't want to be cynical and take away from a well deserved and just victory. However we shall see how these pages unfold in the coming weeks and months.

Case was heard yesterday in front of 3 Judges.

First issue was whether the Court would allow the PNGAPA and NAPU be heard together. This was approved.

Second issue was the appeal by Poxie against the initial decision. Amazingly Poxie did not supply the required Appeals book.

The pilot's laywer responded that by law Poxie should have and asked that either the appeal be dismissed or proceed with what the Pilot's had responded with. Judges took the second option.

Reports are that the Judges were very displeased with Poxies lawyer.

The Pilot's lawyer then gave a summary of the case and the original decision.

All in all took 1 hour and a decision is expected in 2 weeks.

Initially I felt very buoyed having read your previous sanguine post Olderairhead. However this latest report puts me firmly in Tripelaís camp. Still a fair way to go, the fat ladies havenít even started warming up yet.
