I know two people with right cardio bundle branch block. ECG computer spits it out, doctor looks at ECG and dismisses it. Both have no restrictions on their medicals.

Has anyone else heard that Peach will get some of the 76 freighters to operate them on their certificate?

Interesting times indeed.

Keep it in the freighter configuration and you could really pack in the passengers

That is sarcasm just in case bringbackthe80s does not get it

I think you will find that the 767's mentioned in the article are the passenger versions, not the freighters.I believe that ANA group has a total of 46 767 in total, a mix of -300., ER, F and BCF variants.

It is pretty obvious that the machines possibly destined for Peach and Vanilla will be PASSENGER aircraft.

But then, as we know, anything is possible!

AJX Pre Screening

Hi everyone

I am new here. Have been thru the thread on AJX here and have to say it very helpful and answers most of the questions. I have my pre screening tom in MIA.

Just wanted to know if its just the Visual Circuit for the pre screening or there will be a interview and written test as well.

Thanks in advance.

This prescreening thing wasn't around back in the day but from what I understand it is just the SIM

Good luck.

Pre-screening is just a visual traffic pattern on the sim. Nothing else.

One thing I can't find after reading this thread is a sense of the rosters. How many of your 20 days on are you flying? Is there a lot of back of the clock overnight flights? How long are the pairings and how much are you flying in a month? Thanks.

Schedules vary widely from month to month. There is no real set type of schedule. What you can count on is having 1 day off every 7. That is all they have to give you. But saying that, I usually don't work 6 on 1 off.

Looking at April's schedule, I have 4 days off and I am there 22 days. But I also have 3 standby days. Seems I get used on standby about 30% of the time.

I have 13 flying sectors and 8 of them are back side of the clock. We have anywhere from 1 day to 5 day pairings. Looking at April it looks like my longest is 3 days and shortest is a loooooooong 1 day.

Average flight time per month is around 50 hours. If you have more passenger pairings you will have more hours of flying than if you have cargo pairings. Cargo pairings are usually shorter flights.

Thanks for the great info. How are the JCAB duty hour limitations? I assumed because the position is salaried the company will roster you at max duty but 50 hours sounds reasonable. Are the Air Japan limits more strict that the JCAB?

You will never get anywhere near the annual limits. I think one year I had 470 hours but the rest all fall around 450 or below.

We have our own set of Scheduling Guidelines, which AJX use when constructing the rosters. They are significantly better than the JCAB limits, which basically say you can work 15 hours a day, have reduced rest and all of this may be extended if required. The JCAB limits have no place in modern aviation and are an absolute joke as far as fatigue risk management is concerned. Our SGs are a very positive step in the right direction. They're not absolutely ideal because the guys that managed to implement them were dealing with a mindset based on the JCAB thinking but they still do a lot more to help our schedules than not. There are still night to day duties and there are plenty of pairings where you do wonder if any consideration has been given to sleep cycles etc but tell me an airline nowadays where this is never the case. If you can find one, apply to them

I am similar to jrmyl. I end up working 6 in 7 but that does not mean I'm flying for 6 days. I'll have standby and probably get called 20-25% of the time. Working 6 days straight and then one off is quite rare and it will normally be something like 3 day duty, standby, 2 day duty, blank day. Sometimes there are much longer stints (up to 9 days), with a blank day downroute but I would say 80% of my flying is made up of 3 day trips.....at night

From the outside looking in that all sounds very positive (bearing in mind I'm in the same part of the world flying to most of the same places but pushing 900 a year). It'll be interesting to hear what the 787 rosters & work patterns look like in due course.

Did anyone have an interview in Sydney?

I just curious about how many people are going to take the interview. The pass rate looks pretty low.
