Well if they are looking for experienced F100 captains there are plenty of us around. Flown little Boeings big Boeings, Airbus, F100,F70. Brisbane used to be home and Adelaide would also suit.

Rumour has been around for 2-3 months about them getting up to 3.

I wouldn't care if it was an A380 :

Run in the opposite direction.

What Shed Dog said!

I would have a look at that (albeit locked ) thread closely, very close to the mark in a lot of respects. There are soooo many other jet operators around-don't do it to yourself!!

I thought they came with crews anyway as no-one here has any jet time, just what I heard.

It is happening, but I would love to know how they are going to operate away from Perth! I doubt Alliance or Network (Qantas) will help.

If they base them in Brisbane, then Jetcare could look after them engineering wise.

Anyone heard anything further? Are they looking for pilots for them yet or are they going to upgrade the current pilots?
