Thumbs up

If it is who I think it is then he's a very sharp operator and a top bloke as well.

I think he will do well, very competent operator and was always going to progress up the ladder. Was just a question of which ladder.

I've only heard his initials, but if it is who I think it is, he is actually from quite a small charter outfit, then Ansett, Qantas, Jetstar and I have a crush on him.

I don't have a crush on him, but he was excellent in running the 767 RNP project.

Nice one.

Wow, I remember when AJ was flying Mu2's at Adventure Air and Brook Armstrong Air Services in the 90's. A good choice.

So where's the current Network CP/COO (AS) off to? All I've heard is a role within QF in Sydney.

Didn't this become Impulse?

No, Impulse was around way before Brook started his charter business. When Impulse removed the B1900C from service, a Brook look over the lease. He did work closer with Impluse and operated some of the night runs for them. When he shut up shop Brook joined Impluse as a pilot.

pole climbing…..

Lets hope he is as good/nice as all comments indicate.
I hear there will be real disengagement if this one comes and goes in a similar time frame like the incumbent.

From all reports the outgoing has really left a sour taste.

During his 2 year LWOP stint, it has been shown that he has done the bare minimum to help improve work conditions/practices through a significant growth period. Still "GA with Jets" outfit with a few more jets and routes..

I think you will find that this job is just a stepping stone for Qf blokes who will want to move on to bigger and better things in the mainline section. It will be interesting to see where the incumbent moves to. As Transition Layer says, I bet it's to a seniorish job in mainline flight ops in Sydney.

Most pilot management types once they get a sniff, can't help but want to move up the ladder. They forget they were once line pilots and why they joined up in the first place. Office now before cockpit! The incumbent and the incoming are now career office types, and there's nothing wrong with that by the way. Flying the line is now a secondary consideration, and sometimes a chore. I couldn't think of anything worse personally. Good luck to them I guess, somebody has to do it.
