Hi all
Does anyone know how many overnights Sydney-based crew generally get?
I read that it was very low when the base opened. Just wondering if it's gone up at all?
Thanks in advance!

ADL

Hello everyone! Does anyone have any idea when the next GS for ADL is likely to be? Has anyone got through to reference checks or ADL talent pool from the AD days in June? I'm still waiting patiently. Thanks!

End of second week

Hi guys
So end of second week of GS today. All is great. The trainer are very helpful and with you every step of the way. But be ready, It's soooooo full on you do one thing and then on to the next. The first week we worked untill 1.30 am on sat morning (due to an aircraft availablity) and lots of study and reading. We have done 2, 45hr weeks in the class room and about 25hr extra study at night and on weekends. But at the end of the day it's all good 😊 would change a thing. Best of luck to everyone. Happy flyings 👍🏻✈️

Hey Mooky1, congrats I hope it is going well! Just wondering do you have to travel to the training every day or is everyone actually boarding/staying there for the whole ground school period?

Does anyone know when the next one will be?
I've heard people can wait such a long time!
Hi! I'm also in the talent pool for VARA perth. I'm waiting to hear also when the next GS will start!

VA CC

Hi all, Just an enquiry for a friend who is applying for VA CC. She has to submit an elevator pitch in the next day or so, do you upload a file or is it recorded live? Cheers83ATC

You will have the option of recording live (which you have unlimited takes), or you can simply upload a file.

Hi
It's a office building. No accommodation on sight. It's about a 10 min drive away for the airport in an industrial area. There is a Quest Melbourne airport hotel about a 5 min drive away on south centre road.
All try :
Fairy Floss Real Estate. It's a great page, sublets and short/long term rentals for Melbourne 😀
