Your first six months during training at mainline could be unpaid and your super over your lifetime will be significantly better off at QF than anywhere else within the group.

Mate your training pay will probably last a grand total of 12 weeks, and compared to your base pay as a 330 or 380 SO is not hugely different. The rate is available in the EBA, itís not difficult to find.

That would very much depend on how old you are when you start. If you were to start at Network Av or NJS and have some Jet experience already youíll get a quick command and be on $210K+ straight away working 50 odd hours a month.

If you start at QF itíll take you quite a long while to earn that doing 50 hours a month.

If you were to head to the US with experience under your belt then youíll be far far ahead then starting at QF.

If youíre a mainline Pilot why not just throw an answer up? Are you ashamed that you paid for your own endorsement?

They did not say pilots were unpaid whilst training. They made the [unsubstantiated] claim that even if they were unpaid during training they'd still be better off than other parts of the group.

Because itís easily obtainable and I donít believe that I should have to go do your homework for you. If you genuinely are interested in joining mainline, then I would highly recommend reading the Longhaul EBA and getting your head around it, so that thereís no surprises when you join.

And you can claim that mainline pilots pay for their type ratings, but bloody hell if thatís the case, itís the cheapest one Iíve ever got.

Donít Atlas have training pay? Or is that allowed because itís not Qantas?

Actually, they don't...
On the B747 and B777 you'll be on US$97.60 per Hour at Minimum Guarantee of 64 Hours + Per Diems.

So Im following the nz thread or wages thread or something and people can answer a question, aussieflyguy asks what the training wage is at qantas mainline and it creates a ****estorm?

Makes me embarrassed to be an Australian but at least I don't work at Qantas if thats symbolic of the place.

Very true. And then year 2 pay is $129 per hour. Thatís almost a 30k gap which is your ďtraining payĒ. This has been the case with first year pay in the US for decades. Same as SOT training pay at qf (obviously different amounts between qf and Giant and unlikely for it to be 12 months) in regards to there being a lower rate when you first start.

+ Per Diems, isnít that falsely inflating your pay? At least thatís what Iíve read from many who are **** canning pay at Qantas. So what youíre saying is that your base pay in the first year, is less than a Qantas SO? (97.60x64x12 = 74,956/0.67 = $111,875 AUD)

And I canít say I have the pays in table format sorry Lapon, but youíre more than welcome to go look it up and create one. The main reason I canít be arsed answering flyboys question is because heís only out to try and substantiate a claim that mainline pilots pay for their type ratings (which is incorrect anyway), why waste my time

Thatís a total insult to every Australian Pilot, past and present if itís correct!

Qantas displaying this behaviour towards Pilots is a Total insult to Australian Pilots!

I stand corrected please elaborate and my point is that Australian Pilots are being paid poorly whilst under training, if that is correct.

No, I simply asked what a fortnightly or monthly take home pay would be for a Qantas Pilot under training. It sounds like anyone starting now will be on that pay for around 6 months.

If youíre stubborn enough not to realise why a training wage exits then thatís on you. I simply pointed out the obvious.

Iíll tell you what flyboy, Iíll give you the benefit of the doubt. Itís approximately (because I canít be stuffed looking up the exact figure) $2,500k a fortnight before tax, and per diems. 6 months is probably not an accurate timeline for SO training at the moment, theyíre getting through quite quickly in most cases (and going to Singapore for the 330, nice per diems there). I did mine in the planned 12 weeks.

So if you want to run with your claim of the training allowance paying for the type rating, Iíll do the maths for you. Difference in pay between a checked to line SO and an SOT for the 330 is approximately $6k (after tax) over the 12 week period. Can barely pay for 2 sessions in a sim with that. Little bit of a difference to Atlas which is around $30k (when you account for first year and second year pay difference).
