Some may mock but 'heavy' time can mean the difference between a candidate successfully and smoothly transitioning onto other more complex and weightier types or not quite making the grade.


An old sim instructor of mine once commented that he could tell those pilots who had flown heavy singles like 206s or 210s compared to those who had only operated light pistons such as 182s by their finesse.


In fact said same sim instructor said his most impressive student was a young Russian who had Tu-114 time!

There's always one.

As far as turboprops go, the Q400 is a heavy one. It's also a medium weight catagory aircraft. Meaning similar separation standards for light aircraft following it, to a narrow body jet.

It's not a Boeing or a bus, but it requires a similar workload and standard to fly it.

So has the ADAPT test now being used in the selection process replaced the SHL psychometric tests? Or is it in addition to?

Yep, SHL hasn't been used for quiet a while, and IMO ADAPT is a much better tool for pilots

Hey guys
Where do you actually apply to JSTAR A320 DE FO position? I can't seem to find that position on the careers page.

Roger that. I would say they are having a cleanup of the applications on file. Probably be re-advertised soon.

Hi guys

Apologies if this has been answered before or is in the wrong area

Iíve been invited for the cadet testing in Melbourne and donít want to get ahead of myself but still just want to get a clearer picture of the lifestyle once youíre actually on the books and how rosters work in with the greater work life balance of today

I see a lot of talk on here about how many young captains there are at Jetstar, this has the obvious impact on promotion so at the moment how long could you expect to be a second officer for and then first officer?

I know you have to be prepared to move (which I would be fine with), but just wanted to confirm that the 787 bases are Melbourne and Sydney? Or can you get based in another capital?

For the A320 I imagine you get based in whichever city youíre needed the most, and then wait for appropriate seniority before being able to request a move? A few years ago there was a lot of news about pilots getting sent to NZ/Asia Ė does this mean a full on move to these countries is required or are you still based in Aus and just flying for these entities? Can this still happen?

Also what would a typical monthly roster on the 787 and A320 look like? On the A320 I imagine short haul is different, is it 5 days on 2 days off sort of thing?

Thanks again in advance

A friend of mine has a mate whose cousin has twice the advertised mins, and a decent amount of multi turbine command but hasn't got past the 'thanks for your application' stage. Does anyone have current info on the sort of experience needed for interview?

It seems, for the moment, you need REX on your CV to get a look in.

Thanks '91. A bit of a backlog no doubt after being relatively slow for the better part of a decade.

Can anyone give me an update on the Jetstar cadet positions that were advertised just prior to Christmas. Is anyone on course or have been told of their selection for a course this year?

Any AKL based F/O willing to send me via PM a copy of recent roster for comparison purposes? De-identifed is fine, just want to see what an average roster is like.

Cheers
