Archangel, as has been mentioned, the questions are very similar to the ones on the Qantas website.


Nothing about flying, at all.

Who are SHL

SHL are the mob that develop and administer the tests on QF's behalf. Check out their website.

npasque:

First of all congratulations and good luck on your course.

Just to satisfy my own curiosity, why did you apply for this program? With your MECIR and ATPLs (and 700TT), you would qualify for immediate employment (well - once you have your type rating that is). What exactly are you going to be doing down there in Melbourne if you have all the required ratings?

    Sounds interesting - assuming there are that many people out there with CPLs who don't have 100 hours in command.

    So are they structured flights, flown at the company's direction, on their schedule, to destinations of their choice, or does the pilot get free reign to go where they please until they get to their 100 hours?

    The rest of the command time is brought up by the Trainee to go flying wherever he/she desires to get that 100 command. Remember in C172.

    Still no word... 490 hrs TT, MECIR, Aircraft Maintenance Trade, no fATPL's. Must put a lot of emphasis on having ATPL theory credits.

    It appears the first round was only taking people who had CIR and all their ATPLs. Second round has started looking at people with CIR and some ATPLs. Might be a good idea, "Littlebird", to get started on the ATPLs, and get one or two out of the way quickly, remembering to update your resume along the way.

    Hmmm....I wonder where my post went?!? I was wondering if Swanie, who told us all he didnít have 100 PIC, had an MECIR and ATPL subjects? It would be interesting to know if anyone who hasnít got these has been offered a place on the course?

    It's a bit of a no brainer! Without the ATPL, you'll be sitting in the right seat permanently.

    Does anyone know the current time to command at QFlink?

    As soon as you meet the requirements for ATPL and company requirements of 700hours and one year with QFlink I heard.

    Hey guys, found out 14 people started the first round of the traineeship at GFS on monday. They were being assesed as to 'where they were up to in their flying' in GFS's old simulator. All with quite high TT.

    Lasiorhinus - thanks for the advice. I'm planning to kick off with the ATPL subjects soon

    Krusty 34 - I know what you're saying, point taken. I believe when the 'window of opportunity' presents itself, just take it. First things first. Get the foot in the door first. My thoughts anyway...

    Krusty, current requirements as Dreamjob wrote. Obviously it depends on how many "upgradeable" FO's you have ahead of you in seniority.

    My answer is "less than 2 years".

    I would be completing ATPL's as a matter of haste. Your day-to-day workload will be fairly high with not much time to study, unless you use annual leave to do the work.

    Good luck to your family.
