Just saw today that on the official Qantas Website that a lot of the flight time minimums have been dropped for positions at Q-link, Network, and Jetstar. Q link and Network are now just 500 TT, Jetstar is also 500 with only 200 ME. Provided I had all of my ATPL theory subjects done and out of the way, what are the chances someone at, or slightly above, the minimums gets hired in these positions or as a SO at Qantas?

Quite high ate the moment, they don’t have anywhere near enough applicants to fill the roles.

Can’t speak for the others but I see the S/O positions at Qantas state:
Preference will be given to candidates that meet or exceed the following experience levels:
  • 2000 hours Total Time
  • 500 hours Multi-Engine
  • Multi- Crew Experience

    I’ve not flown with a new S/O with any less than the above for several years now, so probably unlikely.

    1500 hours because ALPA leveraged the Colgan Air incident to improve pilot conditions and played the long game in terms of pilot supply

    Because 2 pilots, who both exceeded the minimums now in place by some margin and both held ATPs, stalled and crashed a dash 8?

    How many times must this be explained?

    The 1500 hours is because when you have experience you won't work for free.

    It was more about getting pilots at regionals a living wage so they would not be sleeping in crew rooms after they just travelled for 10 hours to work cause they live in their parents basement. They did this cause they didn't get paid enough to live in the city they were based.

    ​​​​​​Fatigue was a major factor in the crash.

    Absolutely. But I don’t think this was the point the author was trying to make with their comment.

    You were hinting that both pilots in the accident had 1500 hours so the rule isn't really necessary. Or was your point something else?

    So let me get this straight......Australian pilots complain about their pays in relation to American T&Cs but the USA have a 1500 hour rule that Australians here are complaining about. However that rule in part has helped regional and therefore mainlines to achieve better T&Cs for all.

    That ladies and gentleman (or whatever you bl00dy identify as) is why the US is the best place for pilots on earth (generally).

    Don’t tell them how awesome you are. Don’t tell them you were first in your class in grade 6. Don’t come dressed in casual clothes.

    Yeah… all the above has happened in the last two years.

    Don’t turn up 35 minutes late and not say a word about it. Happened in my group 🤔. Just prepare your SAR format scenarios. All very nice people.

    Don’t talk about how you drink drive in your home in an Asian country or how you pay for sexualiss, whilst standing next to the recruiter at the coffee shop. Never to be seen again…

    Yes, do tell. (I’d also like to know what sexualiss is, I suspect I’ve been missing out.)

    Sexualises is when a man (or a they/them with XY chromosomes) likes a woman, and by woman I mean a modern day one with a beard… they remove their clothes and well you get the gist…
