Have you actually spoken to any of the operators or pilots up north? They will give you the truth about how busy they are and how the state of the industry is up north.

Hearsay from people that aren't there isn't worth anything.

Go north, find any job in an area you think may have some flying work, settle in.

NO ONE WILL EMPLOY YOU OVER THE PHONE FROM VICTORIA.

Planning ahead

Hi everyone

So I'm about 90% through my PPL in NZ and I'm looking to get my CPL, Multi and Instrument rating. My partner is locked in with her employer for about the next 5 years so I've got plenty of time to get licensed up etc.

I've been pointed in the direction of some places in Darwin that will take low hour pilots but I was hoping to get some help from anyone that's done it before. I guess some advice on what to expect starting with how busy the work might be and what would be a realistic pay to expect at first?

Any other help would be awesome.

CPL Australia - Best training facilities

Hi,
I am interested in becoming a commercial pilot in Australia and potentially working overseas in the future.
I would like any advice on achieving this and what do you recommend is the best path (private or cadetship)?

Thanks.

Maybe have a read of this thread: Fresh Grade 3 Instructor with $120,000 debt. Driving street sweepers...

There are several other similar threads here within the last 3 months or so if you go back and take a look.

You want them to research without doing anyone giving away the answers straight away?
