Looks, at the moment, like Perth is full in all categories. Brisbane will always be full, and Adelaide seems to be finished. Maybe Paris will change things for Perth, but I'd plan on Sydney or Melbourne (S/O or 737 F/O) then you won't be disappointed.

Anyone think they will revisit DE on the A380?

There’s F100 or A320 FO positions in Perth if you’re keen on the west.

Wrong thread soseg

This is Qantas Recruitment , not subsidiary recruitment.

Every few months thereís base transfers for SOs. So if you want to end up in BNE or PER as an SO is to try to get allocated initially to the 330/350 for the former or 787 for the latter, commute for a while then within 6-12 months or so a base transfer should happen.

Thereís no 787 planned flying out of BNE for a long time so thereíll be no SO growth there.

Apparently an oversupply of 330 SOís in Brisy as well, so I doubt thereíll be any transfers to there for a while.

It seems the TAFE qualified Talent Acquisition gate-keepers missed the TAFE week (or day), where 'Cost-of-Experience and the lack thereof...' was discussed.

Iím starting in Feb and we are happy to live in MEL or SYD. Is SYD the better choice for us to settle long term, ie I assume most fleet types will have basings there as I progress up the seniority list?

Live where you and more importantly your family want to live. If you put this job ahead of them youíll regret it when (and it will be when with this mob!) the job letís you down.

QF is a career airline and in the long run thereís probably only a few years difference between bases in terms of which one gets promotions quicker and in a 20-30 year career it probably wonít seem too different.

Commands or different aircraft may come quicker in one base this year, somewhere different the next and somewhere totally different in 10, 20 years time. They were close to staring a Singapore base in the mid 2000s, a London base was talked about a long time ago, who knows where in the future?

You may end up commuting at some point to get a quicker promotion, obviously commuting is easier in LH, some manage to pull it off in SH successfully however. I would hazard a guess and say most pilots would undergo at least one commute at some point during their career.

Your decision on where to live is probably more geared to where you and your family desire to live and where you can afford to live, and how far you are willing to commute to work via car or aircraft. You can live in a rural area if you want, might make taking a SH job with day trips a bit difficult. Thereís some QF pilots who commute successfully from other countries.

That certainly doesnít seem to be the case. The new guys and girls Iím flying with week in, week out are seriously experienced.
A350 check and training Captain, F35 pilot/trainer, A330 MRTT Captain, etc. 95% are coming from another airline. I canít remember the last time we hired an instructor or a charter/piston twin pilot. No disrespect to the latter, just observing the recruits coming through.

True - my reference was towards the latest round of No's that went out last week and rightfully so, could be skewed as a sample in size and makeup...

Thatís a nice conspiracy theory youíve got going on there Satoshi, but I think youíre a long way off the mark.

Similar stories to the round last year, but as has been said, a lot of very highly experienced pilots got hired.

Type-Rated A220 First Officer for Qantas?

Hi Guys,I hold an ICAO ATPL license with a Type Rating for A319/320/321, and I have accumulated a total flight experience of 1800 hours, with over 1600 hours specifically on the A320. I am currently seeking employment with another airline, and I have discovered that Qantas is currently recruiting Type-Rated A220 First Officers for foreigners. Would it be wise for me to invest in an A220 type rating course at my own expense and apply to Qantas?

Absolutely couldnít be further off the mark Satoshi.
havenít heard of a ĎGA typesí getting the nod since circa 2018.
in fact my internal friends starting recently with thousands of hours jet time are telling me they are the least experienced on their course!

Could / Should / Would be wrong...who knows

Do find it interesting that people of a certain demographic get culled before any form of testing and/or intervention. The one's I've spoken to (not hearsay) must be dyslexic or something, having made multiple spelling mistakes on their applications, or otherwise how would those experience levels get 'filtered' out so effortlessly

...anyway, not my Beef not my Bacon.

I reckon thereís an unwritten rule that if you donít have a degree, they arenít interested.

Happy to be proven wrong.

That's very wrong. Majority of rex pilots don't have a degree and they're being 'pillaged'
