Everyone who is successful in the recruitment process goes into the hold pool. It’s a matter of chance on how long you sit in the pool before you get given a formal start date. Could be weeks, months or a year or more. You may get given a general indication of start date but nothing is guaranteed until you get the formal date.

Ok thanks…

Last year it was not a requirement - lets wait and see what the actual requirements are when they get released next week

Bare minimum 1500 over 10 years. At the moment each monthly course is between 15-20.

Is there any consistency in how many days off an SO can expect a month?

Could someone post junior rosters for the 787 and 330 (MEL/SYD bases)?

TIA

FWIW my Nephew just did simulator preparation with the Nexgen Aviation Training guys in Brisbane. Said it was excellent. He was a cadet straight out of Wellcamp however.

I used PATS for my EK interview many moons ago. Wasn't 5K then.....

Do cadets have a special pathway to QF mainline like they do with JQ and Qlink? Just curious.

A roster is 56 days. You'll probably not work for about 30 of those.

RM 4.7.1 A minimum of 20 [10] duty free periods (subject to change by agreement between the Company and the Association) will be built into each pattern line, of which 18 [9] will be DDFDs.

For clarity the days in [square brackets] is for 28 day rosters…

well if you are a dumbass and you know you won’t make the cut, you absolutely need to get a one up on other applicants…$5K is not the way to do it though, there’s a much better and cheaper method

So for your $5k what do they actually "do"? Just a bunch of maths/reading whizzes that sit your psychometric testing for you? They have the answer sheet? Something else?
