To add insult to injury they want to waste peoples time and put them on a 'hold file'.

Ducking for cover here but is this not PC over the top?

Or is there a condition that would mean one could not read this but still hold a class 1?

Yes pay seems a little low, however 6 weeks leave plus 4 mandatory rest days per year???

It is a gubment job to there are certain benefits.

However advertising to create a hold pool if you read it all.........

Beat me to it!

You guys are on drugs!

15.4% super, 6 weeks annual leave with a flexible roster.

Job security is all but guaranteed.

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

You mean bucket loads of night shift ! Thatís why they give you 6 weeks off!

74k to fly a King Air about at all hours of the day and night? And you get to live in Canberra? I wonder if the flexibility is 2 way?

15.4% of 74k is still pretty low.

87k is nowhere near as good as other Turboprop jobs, the top tier of 87k here is pretty close or even below the lowest tier of RFDS and they’re struggling for pilots.

And job security is not guaranteed, a change in Government and cutbacks, and you may also find yourself out of work.

  • Four mandatory rest days per year
Ok, someone care to enlighten me!

machtuk 5th Dec 2019 05:28

Gee that's an appalling salary! Careflight are seeking Beech drivers and they offer $133K!
plenty of Guvmit admin positions would get similar and no shift work no medical no check & training! Kinda shows a pilot position is really more a trade than a professional position at that rate! YSCB would be the pits!
be interesting to see how many applied?

Probably a poor attempt by the AFP to stop its people from commuting suicide.

IFEZ 5th Dec 2019 06:07

machtuk - most tradies I know are earning twice that figure. They're dreaming if they think anyone suitably qualified and experienced will sign on for that pittance. Amazes me how these organisations still keep trying it on though.

That comment is in very poor taste especially towards those of us in those kinds of organisations.

Office Update 5th Dec 2019 06:43

A privately operated B350 only requires a CPL as a minimum. (the Mass of the aircraft has nothing to do with S/P Ops)
All Beech turbo props assuming the minimum equipment for SP Ops is fitted can be flown single pilot. (fact!) Seating numbers may be limited for Charter Ops or RPT in S/P Ops
Salary on offer?, about one half of what the position is worth. + super + 6 weeks leave as a minimum. Canberra loading would be a good idea, along with rent/housing assistance.

Poor taste, maybe. Accurate? Most definitely

Probably just part of the standard boilerplate text that goes with every job ad they list? The way I read it the total pay includes a 22% composite allowance, so that takes it up to $91k-$106k approximately, which is a bit (not a lot though) better.


Squawk7700 5th Dec 2019 08:09

Itís a better salary than most of the passengers youíre flying around and they may get shot at doing their job.

Maybe its the "safe space/ trigger warning" brief?

The ADF pay their B350 copilots more than that. After theyíve trained them.
