Additional time

It would seem that they are working down the list with the most qualified going first (yes obvious I know!!).

Alex, why not go out and fly around for 5 hours, that way you can put >250 without stressing.

QFLink Traineeship

Hi all, just looking at the above mentioned position, and was hoping to clarify, If you take a position with QFlink, does it effectively rule you out of the mainline for good? I know they aren't offering progression onto mainline, but could you leave, work somewhere else for a few years, and then try for Mainline?
Thanks

They do offer progression

Bush Pilot: They do offer prgression to mainline should you wish to transfer after working with QLink for at least 2 years. Not sure about the past but in today's climate they have an agreement now in place with mainline to make the transfer that bit smoother.

Really, so they could actually be a good step towards the mainline? Is it just the senior pilots that they're stopping from moving on then

C'mon Champ read the whole thing (I often have that problem too).

15. Can I later move into Qantas mainline?
QantasLink has an agreement with Qantas Airlines for progression into "Qantas mainline". As a guide, under this agreement pilots are required to be employed for a minimum period of 2 years with QantasLink prior to applying for a position on a heavy jet within Qantas Airlines.

Oops, sorry, just found it then, my bad Anyone know how your chances would compare as opposed to the commercial cadet course? Just wondering whether I should even bother applying as I didn't make it past the skills/psych stage for the cadets. Thanks

I heard that this 'agreement' involved removing one part of the selection process (excluding interview) when it came to applying for mainline after two years, not making this agreement a 'free run' into mainline like many people falsely believe...
Can anyone in the know shed some light on this AGREEMENT?

I am curious, if you make it to the sim check and do not hold an IR, would you still be required to conduct an ILS approach?

Garman: they will not be calling ppl who don't have IR - not yet anyway. looks like they are getting guys with fATPL, IR with a little command i.e. more than 500tt.

this is my understanding of the situation so far... any1 in the know please advise.

To the ppl who have been called for interview: has any1 been called who have a degree but no fATPL. i.e. in the eyes of ql recruiters, can a degree be regarded as having the same 'weighing' as fATPL? surely a 3 year degree would be considered in higher regard...or is fATPL required simply to speed up command for the new dudes?
