Apparently this is the case Havick, 30K plus AUD with rating completed somewhere in Europe. Not sure of the details.

@Havick & "little bird"

Rating being done in Zurich last i heard, all costs go to the applicant.... airfares, accom the lot... no pay until back in Brisbane and line training. They will be happy to pay back the cost of the endorsement only (over two years).

they might be nice and give you access to an Uber account to get to the sim centre.

And as someone said all for 75k a year pay! what a gig!

Interesting, why would anyone go there then? Any Aussie who meets FAA ATP mins can goto the US and fly a 145/175 or CRJ with no bond/endorsement cost and fly 1000 hours a year if you want and upgrade to captain 12 months after hitting the line. In addition you get great travel benefits.

I think its more the fact they believe they are great operators and people will line up for the job.... but as you said plenty of other places to go than that mob.

Wow what a garbage job. Looking at who they have hired in the last 12 or so months, it seems to be the last resort for those who have painted themselves into a corner.

Unfortunately the job is fine. It’s the management and the inexperienced Chief Pilot, who’s a yes man, that make it a garbage job.

I don't think there has been a time in history that the pool of pilot applicants has ever dried up!

When passengers choose a Metro over a jet because of reliability, you know you're doing something wrong.

2 aircraft out of "6" flying today. 3 aircraft flown this week (one 4 days ago). But concerning is only seems the flying aircraft doing 3-5 hrs on most days. Pretty hard to turn a buck with that.

What would a U/S in Singapore cost to get pax back to COK so they (pax) can return back to working at the mine?

P** Off Ned. No one is interested in your hate file with JG. You pop up here like Dicky Nee with everything anti about JG with 98% of your posts filled with the same crap. The CP is a great operator. Obviously, you were one of the people fired by him.

For someone who supposedly doesn’t work at Jetgo you seem to spend a lot of time obsessing about them on here......

You also seem to be an armchair ‘safety’ expert, how did they pass their last CASA audit? The one thing no one could ever accuse CASA of is being lenient on safety. Just ask Tigerair.

They are a small airline with finite resources and will never be able to compete with the big airline groups, however it doesn’t come with the decade long time to jet command either. Do your time, go to China, make some $$$$. Or join a big airline group and enjoy the lifestyle options and eventual bigger salaries(however given the length of time you’ve been complaining I’d assume you’ve already been knocked back from all of them)

Just stop spending your life whinging on here, it’s a bit sad.

Hit a bit of a nerve mate? Sorry you can’t take any negative press of course you’d say he is a great operator, that’s what you “pay” him to do right?

It is a bit sad. Perhaps Ned should grow a set and start his own airline and show us all how it’s done.

Now you're talking - he might even have an impartial FOI that wasn't best mates with the CEO.

Sorry, but some of the stories I've heard from both pilots and cabin crew about JetGo scare me to tears. I even refuse to allow my sister to fly with them.

That would depend on the type of problem. A l o o o n g delay which may lead to overnight pax and crew in Singapore then depart the next day would not be too bad. A more serious AOG waiting days for a fix would probably require either a rescue charter from WA or rebook pax on other carriers via Perth to KTA.

Where does insurance fit in this picture? A leased aircraft that breaks, does the leasor carry some cost as "their" aircraft failed to proceed?

Anyway, all airlines carry the same issue. Admittedly more difficult for Jetgo until they get their second E190.

"Bazinga" That sounds like a great way to pass a CASA audit.

I wonder if you can operate to Singapore in typhoon season with a wx radar MEL'd? It seems JG can in the middle of summer cloud dodging on the east coast. "See and avoid!" (JETGO that is!)
