The Qantas academy is run by FTA.
It is a Qantas Academy in name only. A way of “ restocking GA”, not a conduit for QF pilots.
Pilot selection is carried out by FTA, sometimes not as QF would choose.
i don’t believe graduating pilots will have leg up on a standard GA pilot, other than they were chosen from a thousand applicants, and were the best of the lot.
I believe the only real worry for anyone wanting to get into QF is that the academy plans to produce 250 new pilots per annum when up and running. More than currently appear each year.
more competition for jobs because of a bigger pool to choose from.

Virgin told me that they didn't accept ATPL's from a foreign conversion and if I wanted an interview with them I would have to sit ALL the ATPL exams so they could see evidence of passing the lot so I didn't bother pursuing Virgin any further.
hahahaa, oh god usual rocket science from Virgin.

On a side note good thing you are converting EASA to CASA and not the other way.

I think you will find QF requires this as well.

Both Virgin and Qantas had that ATPL requirement. It may have changed?

Does anyone have the inside line on future recruitment? Internal EOI? External recruitment? Current hold file status?

hestonfysh,

I know of internals starting in Dec, Feb, Mar and Apr (don’t think there is a Jan course and don’t think courses have been assigned past Apr but not 100% sure on this) all been given B787 PER but am hearing from a mate starting in Dec that there are Airbus 330 SYD spots being allocated as well.

Talk is the next round should open up in Nov/Dec (or maybe early next year) for internals. Not sure on externals.

hope that helps

I had been warned a long time ago about it but nothing mentioned about it when going through the process years ago. Got an ATPL - tick in the box and on to the next question. The days of asking for individual ATPL scores are long gone. As they should be.

Academy

Hi, I am just trying to get some information with the academy. How successful would the outcome be for myself and do you think it is worth all the money and time to go through the academy rather than a university and try for the future pilot program?
Thanks.

Have any External applicants been given a start date? Or is it just internals only. I figure they mix the courses with external and internals but seems to be getting late in the year.

Hi guys,
Regarding the Qantas direct entry SO requirement of 250 hours in Command of a powered fixed wing aeroplane and 1000 hours as Co-Pilot of a multi crew, multi engine turbine aeroplane (excluding hours In Command Under Supervision);
Does anyone know if some of the 250 PIC hours can be in an RA-Aus registered plane i.e. a combination of VH registered aircraft and RA-Aus?

Thanks!

They only ask for a full transcript if you don’t have an ATPL. If you have an ATPL all they ask for is a copy of your license.

”QF mainline still (as they always) have ask for a CASA transcript showing all ATPL & other exam attempts“

I wouldn’t even know where mine are..... have them a copy of my license with an ATPL on it in 2016 at the interview and the rest is history.....

They are interested in how many attempts
They must have had temps in during my recruitment process then as this was not the case. Maybe you did your assessment days prior to mine and it has changed since? I can say 100% they did not check or even ask me. A copy of my CASA ATPL was all that was required.
