Livelife, Australian carriers are seniority based which means your previous experience has no impact on time to command, itís based on the number you get when you join. Iím not quiet sure what the current time frame is but a year ago you could expect about 8 years right hand seat before a command
And that is after you have passed all the requirements for the right to work here if you are not a resident and any requirements to change your license to an Australian license.

That's not strictly true, where there is a lack of candidates that meet OM requirements then the 3 year time in company rule can be reduced to 2 years if the candidate has equivalent experience. This is why in the latest round a command allocation in Jetstar NZ went to a pilot with 2 years and 1 day's experience. It can happen, the average time in NZ at the moment is about 5 years but they have reached the bottom of the experience and time pool so now the next round will have people who have just completed their 3 years.

Ollie can one move from the left seat NZ to the left seat in Oz? Or back to the right for 7/8 years.

One AOC, two seniority lists. The only Captains in NZ who could come back to Aus. are those who are on LWOP on the Aus S/L. Unlikely as they are Kiwi and they want to live at home. For anyone else its to the bottom of the Aus S/L you go.

Jetstar

I saw an Ad on the Jetstar website if i am not wrong , that a Captain can join directly on turbo prop fleet as a Captain . Is it true?

Also how is life and work balance in Jetstar ?

Hi there all,

Just wondering whether anyone has some tips for practicing the ADAPT testing, i.e. for JQ Cadetship intake? Particularly FAST testing as I struggled with this last intake (hence not progressing to the next stage). Any tips/recommendations for the best websites to purchase practice material would be awesome, just trying to make the best investment possible to give me as good a chance to go on to fly for JQ!

Admin if this is off topic/not allowed please don't hesitate to remove.

Cheers guys

I am curious to what experience and background some of the people on the hold file have? I hear that you can be skipped by people who have greater experience etc?

From the horses mouth, there's apparently 3 main factors that determine your start date "preference".

- How you preformed on the interview day (recomended/highly recommended)
- Notice period
- Company currently employed with (Eg, they are not going to take 9 people from Ambulance Victoria in one hit again)


I believe the average experience level currently is somewhere in the neighbourhood of 3k TT, and some experience with multi crew or at least command on a B200 or like.

But who knows if that's even true, it's only what they have passed on, that whole part of the company is like a black-hole with decision making.

Offer zero mate, it puts you at the front of the line, but by the time they get their ducks in a row, it will be a month.

Hi guys,

Does anyone have the current time to a base transfer to Gold Coast or Brisbane if they become a new recruit next year?

Is it possible when youíre given the instructions to do the Qantas medical that you may have a potential start date?

So you essentially need to have REX on your resume to get a job? lol
