ECAMACTIONSCOMPLETE is partially correct, you can bid for ONE pairing for the month.

Network DE FOs training in ML next month. Then onto JQ for line training?

Does that plug some gaps too?

It will for the short term (1-2 months) but only in the major bases. DE FO usually has 100 hours line training, prior jet experience is usually 80ish. If all their prior experience was f100 time, expect the latter unless network specify otherwise.

Network pilots doing line training still require a JQ FO in the jumpseat, so it makes no difference as there is still a full complement of JQ pilots for every flight. The same as the QF pilots doing their 787 training here.

Looks like the whispers are getting a little louder.

Apparently the Type is happening in the next month or so for an Oct/Nov induction... Are the flood gates opening again?

There’s a course going through groundschool at the moment and another next month. They’re small groups, so I wouldn’t say the floodgates were open but like has been said earlier, there are dribs and drabs filtering through

The ground school at the moment is made up of cadets being upgraded. I believe (correct me if I am wrong), there has not been an external intake since mid last year?

The safety pilot is only for a week or is it longer at JQ?

When it’s pilot training for another airline (Network pilots learning the A320) the safety pilot is for the duration of their training. If it’s internal training there is a table that determines how long the safety FO is required for

Internal EOI's went out today for JQ for placements early next year. Fingers crossed this is also extended to external applicants soon.

This is great news. Early 2020 coincides with around 6 months before the first A321neoLR is delivered. Management have communicated to the pilot group recently that the deliveries will result in a net gain of 7 airframes, which will require around 50 extra crews. Plus the JQ pilots heading to QF also need to be covered. Should be steady recruiting for a while hopefully.

last time I looked there was over 50 on the active hold for JQ from the EOI back in 2016 (Internal)
I wouldn’t hold your breath if your not already on the list

Jetstar Pilot Cadetship (Mar 2020)

Looks like the JQ Cadetship is back up for the March 2020 intake.

Anyone have some info on the application process/what they're actually looking for/ADAPT testing/current check to line time for cadets (assuming passes and fulfilment of conditional employment contract)? I'm thinking about applying but might have too much experience behind me for an ab-initio course (200TT, 150PIC), will probably call tomorrow and ask. Any info is fantastic.

Best of luck to anyone that applies.

If you have anything above a PPL you are overqualified.

And no conditional employment contract. Conditional offer of employment with nothing in writing.
