Jetstar EBA

You can forget about the Jetstar EBA... There are no provisions for turboprops on it even IF they wanted everyone on the same agreement.... That's the whole reason the NZ agreement was set up. Divide and conquer.

Not suggesting they will be on the Jetstar EBA, just saying the company wide culture has changed so that people are now bonded instead of paying upfront for type ratings. Word on the street is that the Turbo prop pilots will be employed by Jetstar NZ and that NZALPA have been approached for a variation to the current CEA to include a turboprop scale.

So as a job this might not be too bad, you may find a route to the A320 after a bit of time on the turboprops. I have no doubt there will be plenty of applicants for the FO positions, they may struggle for the CP spots though.

Some Facts from someone who knows.
Why are they taking on pilots with experience less than their advertised minimums?

Does anyone have an idea of what technical questions they are asking? Similar to ANZ?

So, is the consensus that J* are sending the 'Psychometric Assessment' inventions out to everyone (irrespective of their chances of getting through) in order to make n x $187?

The fee is charged by SHL, not Jetstar.

Yes, absolutely nothing new, and I agree that the candidate shouldn't have to pay - at least I've never had to before!!

It's good to see that Auntie Koru isn't the only game in town again. It's been a while!

They have been interviewing since the start of the month, and some have already started type training.

Sounds like they aren't hanging around then!

Has anyone got any information about More specifics for the tech questions and also the simulator profile?

I don't think anyone for NZ has started the endorsement.

There's currently a few ground schools for QLink for the Q200/300 but doubt there is any capacity in the training department for NZ ops at the moment.

I believe there are 6 new hire FO's who have just commenced. Money is Air Nelson year 1 rate. Based in AKL, plan at the moment is 3 sector days and night stopping at regional locations. Qlink Check CP's and Trainers being offered 1,2 and 4 week blocks in NZ. Or so I hear.

Ollie, is that because they couldn't get Command applicants? I would've thought they would have, I was very close to sending in a CV myself. Lots of guys around the world wanting at some stage to get home.
