Anyone currently on the hold file for 777 SO/ 737 NZ/ATR FO? Just wondering how long majority of people are waiting to a start date.

I did it in the fixed base sim in Altheon or whatever it used to be called. All the power settings and speeds they sent me and I memorized were wrong..they said as much in the briefing..it was a departure and then handling and a return for the hold and the ILS at YMML. No failures except for the flight director and autopilot..buy an hours practice..itís worth it

Hi Matty
Was this for the Fokker 100?
Anyone know what to expect in the sim and interview for the F100.

I'm sure that this question has been asked before, but what are the times to command and moving on to the 737 from the F100 fleet, also how long before you can expect to move from Perth.??

Gíday all

havent been able to find out much information about this - no one seems to know! Any help would be much appreciated.

Say I joined VA on the 777, then wanted to go to Tiger to speed up my time to narrowbody and shorten my time longhaul - does anyone know of the process involved - whether it is as easy as filling out a form, or whether there is a full application process to transfer?

Thanks in advance

As far as Iím aware... seeing as the seniority lists are now joined, simple as bidding across ...

Yup, once you've done your time, which AFAIK is 3 years in position, you can bid to VA or TT or VARA or VAINZ window seat. If you've kept your nose reasonably clean and (here's the kicker) they're not desperately short on your existing fleet you're in.

But I thought VARA has been on the seniority list for some time, yet their pilots appear they must apply for a mainline position?

Also yes... just like at any airline - and that is truly a big kicker, as I donít know many that have had the correct crew compliments for some time!

During the interview they told me 11 years to command on the 737. Can't help with the rest though.

Pyro, I reckon 11 years is optimistic - my guess is closer to 15 for the 737, prob 25 for the wide bodies (not that you mentioned the wide bodies in your post)
