Also curious on how much you earn on initial employment, not only as an SO but also while in training

787/330 SOís are earning anywhere between 160-200k at the moment.

Initial training expect 55-60k and at the current rate itís about 6 months until check out.

Is this base or are you including allowances? Obviously if your overseas you need to spend money.

Are you referring to 60k for the 6 months? Or an equivalent of 60k/year training salary?

Thanks, and if youíre training away from your home base are there allowances on top of this?

$160k is base.

Is 30hrs above MGH the same as 30 hours overtime in other EBA currencies?

Its 30hrs at the hourly rate. Overtime comes into play when assigned a trip that takes you over divisor +5hrs.

Future Pilot q's

Hi All,

Currently in HS pursuing an RAAus RPC (0.7hrs solo), and have a few questions:

1. Have any QGPA graduates made it to Q-link yet? If not, when can that expect to start?
2. After finishing my RPC, is it worth converting it to a CASA RPL just for the purposes of applying to the academy (as they may prefer a CASA license)?
3. If you complete an aviation degree program with a QFPP school, and do the practical flying on the weekend with a non-integrated school, can you still be considered for the QFPP

Now before you all start complaining about cadet programs, I will say that I am fully aware of the traditional process (going up north ect..), and will do that if I am not accepted to a cadet program. Just curious about options to expedite the process.

Thanks

The problem with the program youíre talking about is that as I understand it, itís not a cadet program at all. Whether you like them or hate them a traditional cadet program would give the cadet a leg up and generally seniority from an early age.

By the sounds of the academy program you pay over market rate to go to a Qantas branded school, but it doesnít gain you an advantage. If you do happen to get into a subsidiary, youíll then have the often discussed issues of getting released by the subsidiary should you pass selection by mainline.

Getting your 1500 hours and heading over to the states is your best bet, once you have experience you can apply to mainline directly, and if that doesnít pan out or your plans change you have started on the best alternative path (some would say itís a better path than any offered in Australia)

For the benefit of all airline pilots, please do not consider applying to any airline with (regardless of cadetships etc) only "0.7 solo so far". I say this with the best of intentions and for the betterment of the industry
what a w**ker. Guys just starting out hoping to get info from people in the industry and gets a response like that. I think half of the problem with the industry is people like you.

The best way to get a gig for Qantas is to not be employed by Qantas (subsidies) proven time and time again.

Just ask the poor bastards who interviewed back in 2018 and have only just started. Understanding there was a COVID blackout but that didnít help their seniority get blasted 300 spots.

Not to mention those who didnít even get a look in.

ď If you complete an aviation degree program with a QFPP school, and do the practical flying on the weekend with a non-integrated school, can you still be considered for the QFPPĒ

Not sure if this is an option. I believe the QFPP schools are all associated with universities and require you to go through their flying school which will all be integrated (I could be wrong

ďGetting your 1500 hours and heading over to the states is your best betĒ

This is a good theory however if you have only just started training it is probably at least a three+ year prospect and who knows if Visas will still be available by then.

Are they recruiting engineers? Rumours are popping up that Joyce is going to sell off engineering and outsource all of their work. Because that would be great news to the flying public, not too mention on time performance.

Totally agree...being locked in a subsidiary leads to life in that subsidiary. Not to say you cant progress but they make it an incredibly arduous and frustrating experience. There is very little recognition. I can understand why, however theyre thinking of the company and not much of their staff.

The quickest way has always been work for a non-aligned airline then apply to QF.
