He appears to have deleted the post about PATS too

I can tell you now, Iím not that smart, yet I managed to get through the psychometric and general ability tests by simply doing a few practice tests and then just got stuck into it. And was also offered a start very soon after. So I highly question his claim about being ranked as well

Anyone know actual starting pay as a Qantas SO?
And what is current time to FO? Say 787 Sydney position.

info I have is:

787: SO 125k FO 235k
A380: SO 110k FO 210k
A330: SO 110k FO 190k

737 FO 145k

Thats a question that never really gets a straight answer here, but from what Ive learnt those figures are about right (I don't have a clue about the 380 - I would have expected more, but don't know).

There are all sorts of allowances, overtime, incentives etc on top of those figures, but of course thats the case for nearly every pilot at every other company too.

*Technically there is/was a much reduced training wage that is the starting rate too.

Actual starting pay is $80,838.42 per annum or $3,109.17 per fortnight. $2,401.17 each pay after tax.

Only until checked to line (10-12 weeks).

What happens if you go onto the 737 straight away, which I assume has a lengthier training footprint?

How many weeks/months would that usually take? I assume a bit longer than for SO. And my understanding is now overtime is paid, but allowances are?

May put you below award wage for a 73 driver!

Technically not, because youíre not a 737 FO. Youíre a second officer undergoing promotion.

737 courses are 14 weeks for transitional training. Probably add a few for a new joiner.

How many 737 pilots are there in QF and when do the A320’s start to arrive? I’m wondering if people will end up joining and being offered an A320 course on day 1 in an effort to reduce the training overlap.

That would only occur if there were to be a lack of internal bidders. Exactly the same as whatís happening with the 737 now.

Plus Q can assign from the 737 to the 321 if they deem there is a surplus of 737 pilots.

Sydney is the first base, apparently all of Sydney will be changed to the 321 before any other base gets a look in. Of course their plans never work and this will be over a significant period of time. Expect it will be quite a junior fleet to begin with due training freeze, until they get to the point where there are no more Ďunfrození 737 pilots who want to go, then they will look at frozen pilots who want to go.

I think itíll be quite popular so thereíll be no need to assign anyone.

Nah theyíll have to share basings around otherwise itíll become too top heavy in location. A quarter of SH pilots are based in Sydney,

Hasnít it already been announced that Sydney and Perth will be the initial bases? Clearly theyíll be based all over eventually but who knows the timeline or order.

Nothing formal has been announced for the A321 apart from training and technical positions. The first 3 wonít even be here til mid 2025 so far off announcing solid plans yet.

Eventually however the plan will be for all bases to be fully transferred to the 321 in 10 years, but thereíll be some 737 bases remaining too as that aircraft will keep operating for 10 years. They may run 2 aircraft per base for a while and then eventually fully transfer all flying to the 321 but the exact timeframe for that hasnít been decided.
