Would an applicant with a lapsed MECIR be treated as one with no rating at all?
I assume not, as getting current again is only a matter of a couple of flights.
Has anyone with no MECIR and ATPL theory been invited to testing?

No. My MECIR is current. If your MECIR just needs renewing I would say it would be ok. If however it has expired, then effectively you dont have one. so I would say that would be a different story.

hey guys just a question about the application form where it says 'do you have >250 hours TT' if you say 'no' to this is does it put you below the people who stated this? im curious as i have around 243 hours but probably have around 250 taking into account unlogged hours etc.....

Littlebird,

I think you would be treated differently as you have held a rating in the past.
A couple of famil flights and flight test and you are back in action.
Consider that against those that have to undergo the full IFR training and possibly the IREX too.
As for your other question:

As other here have stated, it would appear that they are looking at those applicants that are close to direct entry requirements first, ie: all boxes ticked except total time or multi command.
As mentioned earlier, these guys will presumably check to line quicker.

Maybe the next round will focus on those with much less flight time, no IFR or ATPL theory etc.

Waiting to hear like everyone else

ATPL requirement

just a quick question guys,
One of the requirements to obtain the ATPL is 1500TT of which 250hrs must be command time. If one got into to QLink trainee program with minimum of 70hrs command time outline on QLink website, how would one ever progress to acquire ATPL to command a Dash8 a few years later?

B773 - The requirement for 'ATPLs' is generally accepted to mean having passed the subjects - not actually having the licence. In other parts of the world (i.e JAA land it's known as a Frozen ATPL (or fATPL).

archangel7 - see the multitude of threads on high capacity AOC holders abilities to bypass this requirement.

B773, yes you need 250hrs command to hold an ATPL. You will find that Qlink will "top" you up to 100hrs command. From there you can log 150hrs (max) ICUS to go toward the 250hrs required.

Hope this makes sense. Just check the regs regarding the requirements to hold an ATPL for more information.

I know its classed as a 'traineeship' and not a 'cadetship' but does this mean there will be no 'cadet like' seniority on offer? Therefore jsut being like a normal DE Pilot?

Some are in

I know of two guys that have already recieved the 'happy call'.

Recruiting are not waisting any time when they know they have some goers. Both are MECIR, ATPLs and neither would have more than 350 TT.

They must have done alright in the sim and interviewed well.
