you might have flown with me, you might not have but that echos my view pretty well. even if coming from single pilot vfr it was like drinking from a fire hose

2019 Update?

Anyone have any idea about the expected movements this year with Link? Still monthly-run courses? Preferences for trainee candidates with little/lots of hours? Hold file wait times? etc etc

Yes - you should be contacting AFAP. They are pushing back hard on this but seeing as though the labour proposal has already been approved there is not a lot that can be done.

If youíre on hold.....give them the middle finger and go somewhere else.
They still think itís a ďpriviledgeĒ to fly for QantasLink.

6 vacant commands in Brisbane with no suitable candidates to fill these positions. No other choice but to go overseas and employ qualified pilots.

Latest bunch of saffer's in the latest DH8 ground school are all entering as F/O's.

Most have minimal dash experience by the sounds of it, mainly CRJ's etc.
