I'd be looking at Kalgoorlie as the pick of WA. Big enough town with enough facilities and spare accommodation to support a school of this size [Not talking about Hay Street here]. Two or three trains and about four airline services per day linking back to Perth. Great weather nearly all the time and meets all the airport requirements I think. Not too much traffic: airline F28s, charter aircraft and Air Force training jets currently come and go, but not excessive. All the empty sky that anyone could possibly want.

YCUN could offer the prospect of accomodation/facility sharing with the Ag school that sits right beside the aerodrome. In addition there is the potential for reduced overall cost (to the government and QF) should the field be required to be upgraded to international spec for diversion purposes.

YPKG and YCUN don’t have an ILS so unless their submissions include the addition of those facilities they’re going to be a long way behind some other contenders.

Is the USA leading the way?

A link to another thread: CFI’s are included in the process

Oh, so that's why the only place in Tasmania ASA only offer CPL/ATPL exams is Launy........ despite the existing schools in the state that offer professional courses all being in Hobart... It finally makes sense!!!

I think that’s “... the powers THAT be...” just sayin’

A major criteria is also the weather. I doubt Launy or Hobart would meet that.

You are quite right. I believe it was written in the early hours in a different timezone. Forgiveness please

That AFAP job add mentions award plus 10%. I haven’t checked the award but would it be reasonable to say it’s hardly attractive

I would suggest that if it doesn't go to Tamworth it would be due to a large number of brown paper bags changing hands, or pork barrelling on a biblical scale at another site.

CAE just moved all there Indian cadets to Tamworth and are struggling to get instructors they are offering bonuses and housing allowances for Moorabbin based instructors to move. They moved all their diamonds up there and apparently 50% are sitting idle.

Tamworth is the logical place for one of the schools. Remember the BAE/ADF facility closes down when that training moves to RAAF Sale. All is in place including accommodation etc and direct QFLink services to HQ in Sydney

I also can’t see why anyone would go past Tamworth to be honest, it ticks all the boxes for everything.

Shortlist from the post above

  • Alice Springs, Northern Territory
  • Bendigo, Victoria
  • Busselton, Western Australia
  • Dubbo, New South Wales
  • Launceston, Tasmania
  • Mackay, Queensland
  • Tamworth, New South Wales
  • Toowoomba, Queensland
  • Wagga Wagga, New South Wales

I'd be surprised if it didn't go to Tamworth or Wagga Wagga. But I've been surprised before!

Completely disagree ! Alan will choose this island as his legacy, upon which he can train his youngsters. Like a modern version of Lord of the Flies. With rainbow overtones. Plus, he’ll have them paying for the pleasure. Another South Pacific money maker, and another game changer !





The island Is for sale.
