This is their first turboprop a/c ..they have Chieftain, Islander and 206. They prob use tht for RPT between Broome, Port hedland or Derby (Curtin Airport) just a rough guess..

If you carry a bible in your nav bag, then you will fit into the team

From an ex employee I hear the bible is for personal emotional health reasons. You tend to find god when life and death issues are part of everyday work.

I concur. CP is a bible basher but not a bad bloke. You aren't expected to be one to be hired though. You will be expected to do your full 90hrs duty so expect to be cleaning the b1900 and writing manuals (on how to fly the b1900) when not flying it.

Basically GEA was a small company which bought a big company (Aerial Enterprises) and drove that profitable, respected, big company into the ground leaving only the small company it started with in the first place! Oh yeah forgot to mention, that same boss/owner was and is still the bad driver! What could have been if someone had let the good people he had do the job he paid them for! Pity.

FMC.

PS. Beech 1900, come on, really.. wait and see...hahahaa...

Golden Eagle Airlines - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Apparently BAe 146's are on the way!

This really get's up my goat.

Full time employees work 38 hours per week, not 45, although as a Pilot you can extend to get the job done (which is why the 90 hour duty limit is there).

If you work over 38 hours in the week, or 76 in the fortnight, you are on overtime - plain and simple.

Put that in ya pipe and smoke it!

Hhhaaha, well spotted.

So there is some chance of progression through the ranks after-all, - is it really a step-up though, going from the BN2 to a BAe146.

So who's going to fly the 1900's?

I'm assuming they are going to hire externally? When I was flying up that way they didn't have anyone with enough hours or experience to do the job with the exception of their main check and training guy.

Most people work a 45 hour week however when you take out 1hr lunch break and 2 15 minute breaks that makes 38 hours.

pprune needs to have a like button like facebook

I like big brothers comment;
"From an ex employee I hear the bible is for personal emotional health reasons. You tend to find god when life and death issues are part of everyday work."

If you have any anti-religious sentiment at all, working for Golden Eagle will drive that home until you find yourself writing the next edition of "The God Delusion".

The CP if he is the same one, will probably burst into tears at the drop of a hat. Rolling around on the floor like a baby crying and kicking and sobbing.

Your pays will be late and less than award. You will get your payslip one day and find your annual leave has vanished.

90 hours. Haha. is that a week? If you fly the RPT and there are delays you will never finish on time nor would you have minimum rest. If things are going well the CP will come take your plane and do some circuits in it giving it back to you after the time you were to depart and then demand that you fill our an incident report to explain why you were late.

Do not fill our an SMS report because the CP will spend days finding our who lodged the report and then crucify you for it.

When you leave the owner and the CP will do their best to find where you are going to and try to get you fired from your new position. They say they do not give references but let me tell you, the damage done by those so called christians is unbelievable.

The CP himself said back in 08 (I think) when he joined the company the turbines were coming in 8 weeks, that was by then 8 years ago. The KR has been talking about turbines just to make people think it is a company that they should apply to because of possible progression. If he cant fly a PA-31 how is he going to fly a 1900?

To Summarise, when you leave the chances are that you will go with no money, no reputation and if KR and Mr Cross Gorilla have anything to do with it, no job to go to at all.

RUN AND HIDE!!!!

You Decide

Get yourself a coffee, a comfortable chair, and settle in to this. Some is crap, but about 85% or more is true. Happy reading

Spot on NTChicky! How very accurate! And whoever is stupid enough to lease a B1900 to this mob, hope you have good insurance!

To KR:
Galatians 6:7-8 (New International Version, 2010)


7 Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. 8 Whoever sows to please their flesh, from the flesh will reap destruction; whoever sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.

And to Capt. Cross Gorilla

Ecclesiastes 5:2 Let thy words be few.


In other words, Shut Up and F##K OFF!!!

Angel Leave with no money.....

If they try that one out when you leave, there is a nice department in WA (I think Fair Trading or something similar) that will help you out Remember to also claim for all allowances you are entitled to; eg 50 hourly, aircraft wash, meal etc, that would not have beeen paid during the time you worked there

Be patient and you will get all you are owed

Don't waste your time with the AFAP as they couldn't be phucked with you

The main man is an arrogent phuck. Employers know this as well .
