Wait so. Apparently QLink Dash FOs are getting in with less than the 250 hours multi? Hmm.

Have you seen the pay? They'll be taking RAAus pilots with GP medicals soon

Still meets the minimum hours requirements. Only needed roughly either 500hrs command or 1500 hours FO turbine. It’s been like that for almost 20 years.

Perusing latest new hires I’d give a “typical” background of at least 7-8 years in aviation and at least 3-4 years turboprop or jet.

Are they still forcing you to pay for a first aid course before starting?

My friend who got in a few weeks ago said no psych or medical either.

if you’re referring to the PEHA pre employment health assessment. Then yes, still averaging around $1k for most guys

Incorrect. No longer a requirement.

But that’s not what they were referring to.

The first aid requirement was more a misunderstanding of the new Part 121 requirements from what I have heard. Doesn’t mean it won’t be required to be done in the future at some point though. But not required for applying etc.

So now that HR is back to work, any ideas on what QF recruitment will look like this year? is there enough on the hold file or will they start interviewing again?

Rumblings that possibly a few VA drivers have now sampled the new conditions and want a crack at QF next time round - is it really that bad over there? Have many left for QF in the previous recruitment drive?

For those who obtained a hold file in recent times…I wouldn’t expect a start in 2023. The training pipeline is at capacity with internal movements.

The 787 is already carrying a surplus for NY ops to commence. The 330 will have most of the new hires but will be onto the average 330/350 pay scale so prepare for that.

Recruitment ramps up mid 2024.

Fact. VA is now a ‘stepping stone’ airline. There are many reasons why people are leaving VA for QF, QQ and now Bonza. Of course many are also leaving for the USA or Middle East. They will be hiring many more this year, a fair chunk just to deal with attrition. It’s a smart move by QF to take as many VA crew - experienced guys and also slows down the competitions expansion.

This seems absolutely at odds with the training and recruitment plan slide that has done the rounds of whats app groups. The hold file currently has the numbers to fill positions on those slides from now until June 24. But there is constant recruitment of those 150+ people across that time.

Yeah, don’t think there will be a recruitment slowdown anytime soon.
The most recent SYD base update clearly stated that recruitment ‘continues at pace’. With new intake courses planned ‘out to June 2023’.

rumor is that 2023 recruiting will be almost entirely internal applicants.

To be replaced by externals coming from where...150+ Cadets?

Once QF Mainline figures this out, recruitment from internals will grind to a slow halt in favour of externals so as not to jeopardise the entire machine. Easier to convince someone from REX or VA to join Mainline, than doing same to join any of the QantasLink or Jetstar group companies.

Not necessarily, if the Group establishes a pathway from the likes of Jetstar to Mainline then that would drive external recruitment. It is in Qantas’ interest to show that internal candidates are preferred over externals. We are edging towards the day when only internal candidates will make it into mainline and the only way in is to join a Qantas Group entity.
