Hard....you bet!

Hi Mr Cat

Yes I didn't finish either. It's designed like this for a reason. No call yet....didn't the email say will hear week starting 18th?? So don't worry too much just yet.

Just completed the psych as well..... Surely no-one completed this.... not 100% accurately anyway.

Here's hoping we all get a call up!!! My email read that interviews would be conducted during the week of the 18th so I'm assuming those successful would get a call this week for a time next week.

Cool

Just out of interest,

What was the time frame between applying and receiving an email from QL for those that have done/will do the testing?

It's been just over a week for me and nothing as yet...

And for the record, like others posting I meet the Direct Entry requirements with the exception of the ME PIC.

Good luck to those applying!

Thanks for the link boardpig.

Answers a lot of questions. A Four year bond doesn't sound too bad.

Mr Cat,

If you don't mind me asking...

1. How long did it take between applying and being invited to undertake the testing?
2. Are you currently in a flying position?

I'm just trying to guage how guys who have been out of the industry for a few years would fair in the competitive selection process

first in..

I would imagine they would process the guys with the IR's and good total times first as they will take less time to be made "ready". Q-Link are under a bit of pressure to get the bodies in so it makes sense these guys will go first. The CPL non-IR guys etc (if indeed they intend to talk to any ) will probably be a bit further down the list as they have quoted 12 weeks readiness time.
Could be completely wrong of course, just my opinion.

If that is the case boardpig, it's quite ironic.

It's these guys that will be the first to go when the major airlines come calling.

Hellooo... QLink management. Do we see a pattern here?

That is a good point Krusty. See as i am still young i would be happy to stay at Qlink for 4 years. I would probably stay longer if i enjoyed it there. But i have no instrument rating and by the looks of it might not get a go. But i guess we will have to wait and see.

The old wait and see game

I guess it depends on how many guys they are after. From the looks of it, perhaps a fair number. Bear in mind the IR doesnt take too long to complete if you are doing it full time so this may not count against you.
If you are over the minimum critera, then you're in with a shout. If not this time, won't be long until the next one.

I have probably missed something, I am interested in this in a years time once i should have my CPL, MECIR and ATPL's. the thing i have come across inthe FAQ's is that it states

4. How much does it cost?

Between $20 000 and $40,000. This includes the cost of all classroom, simulator, flight training and accommodation. The cost of training will vary depending on qualifications and experience of the Pilot at the commencement of the Trainee program.
but on the first page it states.
QantasLink will pay the cost of this training and, depending on the qualifications of the applicant.

Does anyone know the reason for this and if there is a cost involved or is it fronted in that bond?

tcross,

if you read the FAQ carefully, what QL are basically saying is that they will pay the training provider the cost to train you, you pay nothing, but if at the end of your training you are offered a job with QL and you leave before 4 years is up, you have to pay back some or all of the training costs.

Archangel7 - Nope....still waiting. When did you have to have your SHL assessments done by? I had to have mine done by the 18th, which makes me wonder if there is a Melbourne session to be held at a later date. Fingers crossed anyway!
