'One of the issues that I think we have to address is that maybe we have got the pilot pay a bit on the low side,” O’Leary said. “Maybe we have pushed it a little bit far in terms of pilot pay and pilot productivity.'

For those who are or were flying overseas and applied for QF, did QF accept the current instrument proficiency check on your overseas license or did you have to do one back home before applying? It's the only thing not really specified on the minimum requirements.

Cheers

Anyone know how many more assessment days are scheduled for the remainder of the year?

I was told they’ll allow you to attend an assessment day with an overseas rating, but if successful, you’ll need an Aussie rating before your start date.

Is it likely that applications for SO will open again, possibly in the new year?

Cheers.

Yes, it is in the cards. I'd suggest getting stuck into your psychometric practice exams.

Out of curiosity, are guys really still interested in apply for Qantas given the mass of recruitment that has happened this year and how low your seniority is going to be if you start mid-late next year? That's a long time as an SO before you get to be a real pilot.

Yes. It's highly likely that they'll be opening up applications early next year.

Given the expansion over the next few years as well as the normal turnover due to retirements there's plenty on offer for a career at QF. You'll never see the crazy rapid promotion that you see overseas but there's a lifestyle reason for that.

To put it another way, people are being asked if they want to go PER 737 FO in their first week at the company with other bases not far off. That's not going to last forever of course but nothing ever does.

Horses for courses but I'd suggest that for anybody who wants to live in Aus this is still a very good gig. If you're more interested in getting a widebody window seat in the shortest time possible then you're best off overseas.

The latest A330 FO SYD positions were awarded to pilots with 15 years seniority.

QF now has two airlines: a senior east coast one, and a junior west coast one.

But the A330 FO PER are also not for off that ruprecht (12 years). The 737 is a different story on both coasts. The most junior 737 FO MEL position went to a JULY 2017 start date.

737 FO

How hard do the domestic 737 guys work? Duty hours or flight time? Days away?

Does anybody know when the 'reapply in 12 months' starts from? When you first applied or when you got told thanks but no thanks...

I always assumed it was from getting the no letter. In some cases you may have applied 12 months before getting the no which would mean you could reapply straight away which doesn't make much sense.

Write and ask.
