Good luck holding PIA when you don’t have a job to attend.

As for your suggestion of legal protections, equally fanciful.
You must be jet lagged or have sleep induced dementia. Please see your DAME before climbing into the jet.

Pinstripe Solutions had all the ‘intel’ you need.

You mean the company that wants over $300 to help you with your Resume and $250 for interview coaching?

I actually did an interview recently and I was asked which prep service I used. I replied that I hadn't used any. I then asked why and they wanted to know and they said "we know which questions each prep company uses so we ask different ones".

Now I don't know anything about Pinstripe but 95% of people I know who used a prep company for Resume or Interview help said it was a complete waste of money.

after sitting on the ‘interviewer’ side of the desk for a number of years, I can confidently say that you can tell straight away who has and who hasn’t ’had coaching’ for the interview. Some of those people didn’t score as well as they would want to believe.

I can assure you Pinstripe wasn’t/isn’t a waste of money.

Yes, I feel the prices are getting a bit greedy. But it’s supply and demand so probably justifiable.
They actually do a good job and get you where you need and how to articulate a model answer.

Recruiters know and appreciate this and can see the effort you’ve put in to get the job. Much better than struggling through a response.

What I don’t agree with is them selling your interview questions to people without giving you a small discount on their services in return.

I've used Pinstripe a couple of times. I don't know of any others.

A good pilot should be prepared and I see interview coaching as helping you out with strategies to deal with what can be an uncomfortable/stressful situation. You don't do job interviews very often (hopefully) so you want to bring out your best. Would you do a practice in a sim before a sim assessment? What is the difference?

And FYI each time I got the job I was going for!

I have never used any sort of interview prep and likewise have got every flying job I have ever interviewed for. It is horses for courses, all the info is out there and you certainly don't need to pay anyone to find it, but each to their own.

Currently it's 16 years as last command awarded was an 08 start.

Couple of things to note. Recruiting in that era stopped in early 2009, and didn't restart until mid 2016. As the indications for next training year will be as big as the current one all those who started in 08/09 will have a chance to bid for a command next TY, so likely that some 2016/17 starts will get a command slot next TY to start their command sometime in 2025. So time to command should drop to about 8-9 years.

As for the time to command for someone starting this year? That's variable, and as you know the industry has ups and downs meaning it can be many years depending on where you fall as the wave ends. Currently forecasts with retirements and new aircraft into the fleet show the number of Captains needed overall to increase by 200. Half of all current Captains will hit retirement by decade's end.

What I have heard matches your comment.

2025 training slots for commands should get down to 8 years seniority providing the fleet renewals go as planned. These would likely be 737 commands too and not A321.

It's rumoured to go down to 8 years this upcoming training year for SYD and MEL in SH. That's down from 19+ years in 2019. Slightly skeptical but it's plausible.

I think the first A321 commands are slated to be type transfers not promotions as the fleet is introduced, and I don't think there'll be too many in total to start with (I believe only 3 A321s arriving next by the end of next FY). So yes the majority of SH commands will still be slated to be 737 for the next few years, until the A321 hits a critical mass then will become the majority.

But they'll probably still need new pilots onto the 737 as more will leave for LH, and I think it's safe to say they'll still be training pilots onto the 737 in the 2030s. They were training pilots onto the B744 in the late 2010s with that fleet nearing retirement.
