Meanwhile FTA (Flight Training Adelaide) who are hemmed in at Parafield have “soft started” a satellite training facility at Port Lincoln with four aircraft and completed ab initio training of reportedly Cebu Air students and now training reportedly Indigo students. The relatively uncluttered airspace on lower Eyre Peninsula is proving beneficial for FTA but local rec flyers are getting annoyed by the extra traffic particularly as FTA have a Development Application lodged for a multimillion dollar facility at Port Lincoln airport with up to 22 aircraft, an additional 65000 movements a year and decommissioning of an essential gravel runway. The natives are getting really restless particularly as the District Council of Lower Eyre Peninsula have failed to consult widely with the broader community of ratepayers.

QF and the Wagners all wanted too bigger slice of the profit pie for providing the fancy new facilities and student pool.

L3 told Qantas that instructors wouldn’t want to pay for the privilege of training future QF pilots leaving Alan dumbfounded.
“it really is unbelievable that instructors expect to be paid to fly these wonderful new machines,” said Alan.

The Qantas Flight Training Group executive were seen left scratching their nuts in a familiar teapot stance as L3 walked away leaving Qantas to wonder what providers are left that haven’t already been consumed by overseas airline academies.

Alan was heard screaming “you’ll be back!” as L3 were seen taking off on their private jet to establish another training facility this time in Portugal for 500 cadets a year.

Brilliant.

Might be time to engineer another terminal decline, game changing alliance, ground the airline or indeed construct a Potemkin village.

The Chairman's lounge memberships won't fix this one

BWAHAHAHAHA!!! Gold.

In all seriousness though...It would be VERY easy to find instructors for this enterprise if they were contracted to flow to QF mainline (or JQ) after serving satisfactorily as an instructor for a certain period. They could even be given a seniority number so that they weren't junior to their students.

But that will never happen with the current QF Group psyche that values industrial division and more stick / less carrot.

In other news

Virgin have reportedly finalised a deal with a local signwriter to amend the sign on the front door at BFTS. This is an important milestone as they near the commencement of operations in June this year. Lol!
