Which specific clause do you think allows for assignments to the 737 from LH? This hasn’t been allowed in the past so when and what has changed to EBA9 to allow this?

20.1.1 ( the word is “ allocated” which means award or assign) and 16.4 is the administration of it.

17.4 is modified by 20.1.2 so that you can work out what is a promotion and what is a demotion, also what is a bid down. Eg An A380 Captain can bid down to B 737 captain vacancy provided he/ she meets the criteria but a young buck A330 F/O can’t bid to B737 F/O without company agreement.

i can’t see the words” mutual consent” anywhere in the relevant sections. You obviously don’t appreciate the significance of the word “ allocation”.
I haven’t asked because it doesn’t affect me. “Your” manager wouldn’t know anyway.

Just as you cannot displace across awards, you cannot be assigned across awards.
Simples.

If it doesn’t affect you, then why did you bring it up? To try stir or troll people? Assigning to the 737 has never been used so what makes you think it will be used now?

As far as understanding what allocation means, I certainly do and if legislation overrides its meaning, it’s irrelevant.
I don’ t know.

if you you look back, this direction of the thread started when the question of DE f/os came up as being necessary, in some posters opinion.


ok . Which legislation specifically?

Displacement across awards ( incidentally, they are agreements) is not possible because it is not covered in section 20. Allocations, including assignments is.

Qantas requires ATPL results since removing the year 12 requirement, not CPL. Don’t know about the others.

I know they did this in the past, just wondering if bad CPL KDR's and multiple attempts are used in the application process.
The VA cadetship used to ask for them.

Thanks guys
Just that CASA summary of all exams is sufficient - the one you pay $25 for. ie. - no requirement for individual pass marks or KDR's. They check it along with all your other stuff like medical, licence and logbook.

The summary includes all written and flight tests results, as for how much consideration is placed in that report, not sure.

How on earth is that relevant?

Or is it only required for CPL holders?

Nope, everyone Morno. Fastidious about it too.

I recall QF/ and link requiring it back in '08. As for the consideration placed, I've heard of people recently being asked why they failed *insert exam here* twice etc. during the interview.

Presumably they don't want "strugglers". Fail an exam or two, no worries, but have a history of multiple failures and bare minimum passes then you might be seen as a training risk.

This is not the case anymore. For the 2016 QF intake, if you held an ATPL you did not require the results advice. At any rate what they require will be listed on the "minimum requirements" list they send prior to the interview date. I wouldn't stress about it.

SO Interview Process

G’day All,

Just got an invite for an SO interview.
Has anyone been through the process recently and can throw some light on what the day involves?
What to bone up on, what not to, etc.

Appreciate any and all insights.

I was in the 2016, held an ATPL and mine still got checked, as did another internal's recently. Having said that, as you've written - if they want it, it'll be on the list. I would work on the principal of having it and not needing it, but that's just me. Good luck!

It all depends on your current position as well.I think if you have failed multiple exams recently and you could be a training headache(not much experience or new in GA) then this might be against you. If you've failed a couple 10 years ago and have good experience (Multi crew) then this will help your cause. Anyway I don't think they are weighing too heavily on this. Do well in the interview and sim and that's where most points are allocated.
Any news as to what stage internal/external interviews are at?
