Why donít they just have the cadetship only open to people who identify as being female and guarantee them a FO job with one of the subsidiaries when they finish the course ? The cadetships should be fee free for anyone that identifies as being female. Hopefully they are correctly counting all pilots that identify as female as being female.

The ex-cadets after being employed with QF subsidiaries for a little while would meet the mainline minimums quickly, and should have the leg up.with the QF mainline training with the exceptional level of training/experience gained. The policy should be every female pilot that meets the minimum requirements goes directly into the hold pool, they already work for a QF subsidiary, they already meet the QF standard. No need for a interview process.

They could easily build this up to over 200 pilots that identify themselves as female a year. The regionals and subsidiaries can remain at a higher male percentage on lower wages and mainline female percentage can go up to be a world leader in just a few years.

I wish the senior pilot cohort cared for the future newstarts pay and conditions as much as they rattle on about women in aviation and quotas.

Iím told there were around 2000 applicants for 400 positions over the first two years of post Covid recruitment. So on rough figures 200 of the applicants would have been female, and 40 of the new hires would have been female.

Dre, do you know how far through that 400 they are? Iím assuming external open again sometime soon?

Cheers.
