Do you mean heard anything since applying, or heard anything about if another mid year intake is scheduled? If it is the latter, unfortunately applications have already closed.

The majority of the costs can be covered under FEE-HELP.

$145k to fly a bus on red eye flights? What an opportunity, where do I sign?

145k to fly a bus on red eye flights, that youíll earn a similar amount in your first year of working. Or the same amount of money to get a CPL and head Bush to fly a 210.

As much as I loved my time in the bush. Iíd be a million dollars better off if the cadet program was around when I started. Not to mention better seniority and earlier wide body promotions and command opportunities.

Youíd be crazy not too.

I received an invitation to attend the testing early last week. Perhaps give them a call if you havenít heard anything.

Most applicants have received a response regarding there application. I am lead to believe that there are only a few left to be contacted with a yes or no to the next stage. If you don't hear anything by next week, maybe just give CAE a call and enquire. All applicates receive a response, whether positive or negative.

Good Luck...

hey 727,

I did the testing a few years back.

I think youíll find that the questions in the interview will be more behavioural (tell us about a time when you have use teamwork to resolve a problem...). Have a few example scenarios ready to go and donít bullsh1t them as they will pick up on it instantly. As it is an abinitio course they donít expect you to have much technical knowledge. However, it is important to know a bit about Jetstar (fleet size and types, engines used on the A320, year the company was founded). Have a read of the Wikipedia page and the fleet page on the Jetstar website.

I hope that helps.

Airbus pretty much summed it up. Technical knowledge not required. Questions around why you want to be a pilot, why do you want to work for Jetstar and behavioural questions are in the interview. Also expect some group activities to assess teamwork, leadership, problem solving and communication skills.

Technical knowledge not required
More dumbing down as usual. On the other hand, a truly keen and enthusiastic pilot hopeful will already have willingly soaked up some aviation technical knowledge from the myriad and readily available free aeronautical websites for the sheer joy of reading and professional development. You can't fake that sort of technical knowledge at an interview. On the other hand, it is easy to pay a professional advisor to bone you up on the politically correct thing to say at an interview that ticks the right HR boxes.

I too am awaiting results from the ADAPT testing which I took in April. Hopefully we get a response soon, as the second phase of testing will be early next month, and us "inter-staters" will need to book accommodation and flights. 😅

To everyone that did the ADAPT test for this intake. Did u do the coordination test? I remember there suppose to be such a test according to the handbook given to us just before the test, but I'm pretty sure I didn't do such a test.
