There is no overtime. That is what the 22% composite covers

You mean bucket loads of night shift ! Thatís why they give you 6 weeks off!
Squark,
That's standard Pilot award Annual Leave entitlement: 4 weeks with Leave Loading and an additional 2 weeks without, in lieu of weekends and public holidays.

Itís a standard cop arrangement too. They get 10 days for public holidays, but also get a couple more off as there are more than 10 in a year (depending on the state).

Even the old Airvan Drivers were on way better money than what they are offering now.

Does anyone know what a Composite Allowance actually is? People are making this assumption that it's 22% extra pay but it could be 22% of some base wage like most allowances so adds up to not very much.

Also a bad look for them when Careflight has an ad 2 below them for B200 Pilots and offering $133k a year! lol.

and QGAir pilots are flat out staying current with so little flying. Granted the Police sector pilots do a lot more and maybe on less pay

So essentially they own you and can recall you anytime of the day or night, weekends etc with very little notice.

They never had one. QGAIR has them. Also if you want to work at QGAIR, good luck. Id rather do circuits in YPJT with overseas students then work for that organisation.

They charter one. Survey 400. Exemptions exist for lights-off on casa website. Regularly seen over Melbourne in a grid pattern at 8,000ft plus.

Is that not better then most other turbo prop jobs??

What is REX & QLink etc paying?

The surprise for me is no ATPL requirement for the 350 nor 2 crew
No job security is ever guaranteed. Especially in the government.

I have been directly involved with these aircraft and the fit-out etc. is funded by the AFP. As you may appreciate, to go into more detail would be indiscreet. You can accept that or not, your choice
