So last week there was no jobs then suddenly on sunday the 29th of Jan I checked and applications were open, I started an application but didnt have my year 12 results in my back pocket so went on a big drive to get them. Went to upload them and submit my application this morning and bam job closed too slow. I'd suggest anyone wanting to apply have a PDF of all their documents ready on their computer as it seems who is fastest at submitting an application gets the chance at the job. Too bad if you're in GA and not always within internet range.

I wish I could share your optimism, but with ground school started already and then courses filled up every month until at least around mid-year (and quickly filling), many of the required 170 new positions have been allocated. 2nd hand info

That's for the planes on order, I would assume and hope those 8 787's become many more with many more required pilot jobs.

For those interested, a couple of S/Os who joined in October last year have just been awarded Perth 737 F/O slots. Less than a year to the right hand seat ain't bad!

Yeah saw those numbers - thought they must've been new ones.

Good luck to em.

So there you go folks, that's a "real" flying job for those who say they wouldn't join QF to be a SO. Get those apps in

If you have a 737 endorsement and recent time on type I have heard you will get recycled very quickly into a 737 RHS as the SO's don't want the job. Quite a few Virgin pilots have walked that path...

EY, Qf are going to go from strength to strength. A strong balance sheet followed up with new 787's followed by the Max/NEO combo is going to be unstoppable. Their cost base is getting lower and lower by the day. New routes will follow, its already in the media. Recruitment will fire up again.

I am aware of a Cx FO that has a start in April. Was on my assessment day in Nov. I hope that helps.

Actually there's a couple of CX FO's and SO's with QF start dates. At the same time about a dozen current QF SO's have been or will be interviewed shortly for CX direct entry FO. I guess it's all relative...

Any guys or girls heard anything from the latest round of applications that closed last month? My vague understanding was that was likely for 787 positions... Melbourne based?

I guess it's good times in aviation when both QF and VA are taking apps.

The current forecast is MAR and APR courses on the A330 then 8 per month on both the A330 and the 787 for the foreseeeable future. Personally I reckon the A330 S/O training should start to reduce about the end of the year- unless they increase the international flying on the A330 even more.

"S/o training"

Thats a misnoner. Flying with recruits experienced in airline ops, jets and turboprops; all saying "what training?"

A buddy of mine that interviewed late 2016 (RAAF heavy driver) just recently got put on the hold file for those wondering about HR movement.
