20 candidates mixed across both fleets and bases..mainly BRIS/SYD are commencing every 6 weeks. Last I heard the hold file was around 80. Direct entries are preferred but not to say some level 2's are a better candidate than some DE's.

If your on the hold..keep living your life, the call will come.

How do the unsw guys get picked for ground school? Are they in the same active hold file or just given a spot on the course? Would be disappointing if they were given a spot over a DE applicant.

Why would that be disappointing?

Because the guys that qualify DE have worked hard to meet those minimums. They've probably done everything in the power, sacrificed a lot, and taken on all advice the previous generation have given about building experience and the rest will follow, to be overtaken at the line by someone will 200 hours in their logbook. Surely a DE applicant would add more value in the cockpit and to the company than a freshie? Isn't that why just about every company in Australia has some sort of minimums?

Who's to say these UNSW guys and girls haven't made sacrifices? You make a comment about experience, there are some DE guys who arent setting the world on fire at present. The fact is everyone is trained to the same standard, the cadet v GA entrant argument has been done to death.

I'm struggling to grasp your comment about being 'overtaken', run your own race, worry about yourself.

My initial comment was never ga v cadet? I was enquiring whether the unsw applicants go into the hold file alongside The DE and are then picked according to where they rank, or if they are empty spots in each intake saved for the unsw guys?

On the Qlink careers page for Direct Entry it specifies:
or 250 hours or greater PIC of a single engine turbine aircraft greater than 3,400kg MTOW

Has anyone actually got in with SE turbine in lieu of multi?

You started this thread exactly 12 months ago?
Haven't had time to prepare for a potential assessment?

Anyway, even if you had a week to practise I don't think it would help. The questions are left of field and made to make you feel you failed.
I think I know of one person who sat there's on the 4th day....still got invited for an asssent day.
Good luck!

Pretty pathetic on Qlink's behalf that there are many quality Level 2's on hold with no clue when, or if, they'll ever get a call up. What was their aim of interviewing so many Level 2 applicants if they're only taking DE guys?
