Could be something to do with the recent job ads looking for a Training and Check pilot.

From CASA website:

Northern Territory air operator Hardy Aviation is currently restricted from conducting regular public transport and instrument flight rules operations.

This is because the chief pilot of Hardy Aviation has not met required standards during a routine flying competency check.

At this point Hardy Aviation does not have an approved replacement chief pilot.

CASA continues to look at the relevant safety issues.
Now I understand...

I assume they will sort it all out in the short term.

What happened to station jobs being for low hour pilots?

There is a station pilot position on afap asking for 1000 PIC, I hope that was a typo and they meant 100 PIC

Considering its a role flying a Beech Baron, I'd say 1000 sounds about right.

Information regarding the Top End

Can anyone explain to me what a casual pilot flying a C210 should be paid? I can't interpret the award and can't really find anything that shows casual award rates.
Including allowances etc

Thanks

Honestly, the award is not that hard to interpret.

Find the weight of your aircraft, find the weight category in the table that corresponds. That's your minimum base salary.
Add allowances for IFR, Instructor, various other things.

That's the legal minimum than an operator can pay you and avoid being sued for underpayment.

(This does not, however, mean it is the going rate, or indeed an appropriate rate - but it is the legal minimum.)

So a casual pilot should be getting paid 1.25 more than the full time wage?

Casual gets a loading above full time to compensate for the lack of annual leave. It's also to discourage employers from only employing casual labour even though there's enough work for full time employment.

Darwin Accomodation

A few things happening during the wet.
I may have a room available in a Larrakeyah townhouse. If you have the money then both the Casino and Mitchell St pubs are easy walks. Otherwise it is just a 12 minute drive out to the airport.

The room would be ideal for a female as the flat currently has Asian females there. A bloke or two could probably be accommodated ok though.
Better than a backpackers or the rearseat of the Falcon.
PM me if you are looking for somewhere.
Cheers.

TopEnd Tandems.

1 a/c C182, don't know about mins and from what I remember they fly mostly weekends, a few jumps during the week. you'd be doing maybe 5 hours a week.

IIRC their current pilots are also tandem instructors so they don't take a pay for the flying.

Next dry season

I know its early but is anyone thinking of moving north and trying their luck for the next dry season? A guy i know recently moved up to Boome and im contemplating following him up but im unsure as to the current situation (oportunities, number of people waiting for jobs). I am aware a number of companies employed some pilots towards the end of last season and this will obviously impact the number of people that get employed this season. Just looking at my options and dont want to move up and be forced to wait over a year when other oportunities might pop up elsewhere.
