Always good to see new jobs into the market, will be interesting to see the pay on offer for quite significant hour requirements and of course where the base(s) will be.

Pay for your own type rating, and interview assessment by the looks.
Watch out for the Psychometric testing con - great for making money for the airline

That is pure gold alidad, and so true

ANZ even recognise ATPLs as a substitute for high school graduation.

A bit of love perhaps starting to filter through to the real heavy single drivers? 250 hours multi or turbine >3000kg.

PYO Type rating, low turboprop wages trying to live in Auckland ??

Good luck.

Shame about the education requirements, that will knock many good candidates out particularly captains.

M sure there will be plenty of applicants from Oz wanting to flood NZ aviation some more so they will probably fill the seats one way or another...

Perhaps some Air Nelson Pilots might jump ship due to base closures (If J* open regional bases)?
The advertisement does say that the location is Auckland!

Having to pay for your ASIC really shows the calibre of the operation. What else do you have to pay for?

They might pick up a few FO's however with the rumoured potential Air NZ recruitment it's my guess guys and girls that meet their requirements are likely to hold out for an Air NZ Link job.

I've heard there's a few disgruntled Captains at Ar Nelson but I'd be surprised they'd jump ship just to live in Auckland. The deal would have to be pretty good.

Otherwise I wouldn't think too many non type rated guys and girls with 1000 hours P in C on aircraft over 13,0000Kg are going to want to pay for a Dash 8 type rating or equivalent.

I think that actually applies across the entire Qantas group, not just the cheap seats.

No it doesn't.

Don't fall for the old line "they will never get any pilots if they are offering those conditions." Thats what was said about Jetstar when it first started. There are lots of circumstances that will motivate pilots to take a job, even one with low pay and conditions.

People have paid for type rating and P2F for much much worse pay/conditions/carriers off shore.

This will be somewhat of a luxury.

I am not sure you will have to pay for the rating, the rating and training will be supplied by Qlink in Oz and the new Jetstar EBA no longer requires you to pay for a rating so I doubt you will have to here. Be prepared to be bonded though.

Maybe a case of salary deduction to pay for type rating? But then again, what's the salary going to be like for FOs? Auckland is not cheap.

Why would pornstar give 2 sh1ts about the cost of housing in AKL? You can live in your car and take a shower at your aunties place in Pokeno....
My point is, they will pay as little as possible, and 20 years ago, I'd have said yes please!
