I know of 2 people recently getting course dates in May (external) and June (internal) this year.

The wheels seem to be moving again.

A course starting tomorrow, then one at the beginning of March.

Have heard that all internal transfers are being postponed.
Yet I got an email today from a coaching service saying that internal recruitment opening up again tomorrow?

That is because it does not exist. Blame the coronavirus if you like. Get comfortable in you current seat is my advice.

Probably beefing up their IT system as they know 90% of JQ will apply . I'm sure that if they open external half of VA will too. I know I will.

RA & KDR

Hi All,

Was just wondering about the requirement to show Result Advice (RA) and Knowledge Deficiency Report (KDR) for each subject as per the trainee-second-officer-minimum-requirements.pdf. Someone else posted this question recently and it seems like it has been answered both yes and no. Can anyone offer a more definite answer? Wondering if I am disqualified from QF for this reason?

Pondering a permanent return to Oz after 15 years flying overseas. I left Oz with a CPL / MECIR and obtained my ATPL overseas. Later on I obtained the Aus ATPL through the two exam conversion, so obviously don't have passes in all ATPL subjects. Furthermore, I anticipate being able to return in about two years. It is still too early to apply now or is that about the right amount of lead time?

Thanks.

Well not really. The internal announcement says they will stop recruiting for non-essential roles. Usually this excludes pilots / cabin crew.

Has anyone with a start date had it cancelled?

Jetstar has suspended ALL pilot recruitment so I assume Qantas will be the same.

Interviewed about 3 years ago. All I showed was my ATPL. No KDR info required. Not even a mention of it so no need to stress.

Not for pilots, not yet.

Absolutely zero evidence backing that statement up.

Travel will resume back to normal once the northern hemisphere winter is over and the flu season ends.

Where is the evidence for your statement? There is always a large amount of uncertainty about the the course of history in the future. Suggested reading "Fooled by Randomness" & "The Black Swan" by Nicholas N Taleb and Exploring gambles reveals foundational difficulty behind economic theory (and a solution)



Parallel worlds branching into the future, with reality selecting one trajectory through the space of possibilities. Credit: Peters and Gell-Mann

Risk can be defined as the possibility of many possible future outcomes, of which only one will become reality. The simple fact is we just don't know how things are going to work out with this virus.

On Dec 1 2019 could anyone have predicted that 760 million people in China would be in some sort of lockdown within 3 months? Clearly the virtual shutdown for an extended period time of the Chinese economy is going to have a highly disruptive effect even if all future infections of this virus ceased tomorrow. A lot of economic damage is already baked in regardless of the future course of the virus.

Residential lockdowns of varying strictness ó from checkpoints at building entrances to hard limits on going outdoors ó now cover at least 760 million people in China, or more than half the countryís population, according to a New York Times analysis of government announcements in provinces and major cities. Many of these people live far from the city of Wuhan, where the virus was first reported and which the government sealed off last month.

And when Mao style social control doesn’t work, then good old Mao style propaganda does.

Yesterday China reneged on their recent changes to diagnostic criteria. Once again you have to be tested to confirm the diagnosis, and once again we are in the realm of too few test kits and too many false negatives. Its almost as though China has done the math and decided that their economy is more important than a million or so old people. Speaking as an old person, they may be right.

Regardless on the technical details if pilot recruitment has or has not been suspended the reality is that the current situation is a giant pause button on the industry at best.

Those without a job now are in a precious position as I do not think many if any airlines will be recruiting in the next 6 months or until the virus has blown over and forward booking recover.
