Hi everyone! Just wondering on what everyone's thoughts were about where to apply if you want to fly from BNE or PER...
I'm a permanent resident (born in Belgium) and recently got my Australian ATPL and 4000 flight hours and will now be starting to apply to places.
Thanks a lot for any tips and guidance!

Brisbane is probably the most sought after basing in Australia.
For Perth Network's your easiest bet, for Brissy it would be Alliance, for anyone else you will joining the back of a long queue to get a Brissy base.

Run some numbers carefully before you turn up, and I would have a cash pool before I arrived also. This is a very expensive country to currently live in, a family needs a household income be it single or dual, of at least 150k.

100k is the new 60k, so 120k you are borderline or going into negative expenses. Rent in Perth for a 3 Bedroom is $600-$700 per week. Grocery Bills $300. Fuel $100. Kids Misc expenses $100. Bills pro rata $300 per week.

Sage words. I was quite shocked repatriating to Australia as to how pilots were struggling so hard in positions that decades prior were well paid. Itís only going to get worse too. We have to pay for our COVID policies and cost of living will go through the roof. As a landlord Iíve never seen such a carte blanch attitude to massive rental increases- which are taken away soon after by indebted state Labor governments in the form of land taxes etc.

Network Pilots working like dogs on a terrible EBA can't even get a CPI increase. They must be wrapped about the $20,000 the company is offering people to join that circus on day one. Nice job kicking your guys in the guts when they are already miserable and getting ready to leave in huge numbers. What a disgrace.

But this can't be true...I mean...they put it in writing
Flying within WA gives the opportunity to enjoy a consistent work life balance. We're based in beautiful Perth and have a lifestyle that suits us. For us, this makes life pretty special.
