  13. 13. QANTAS Pilot career information The following information has been reproduced from the QANTAS general recruitment information and details the pilot career requirements for joining QANTAS. This is a useful reference in deciding which course of study is the most appropriate, as well as what the general career path is once employed by QANTAS. “A career as a Qantas pilot is an extremely rewarding one in terms of job satisfaction and self-esteem. The much-publicised aspect of financial reward is commensurate with the time, work and effort required to maintain the position. The learning process will continue throughout your flying career. Study for a career as a Qantas pilot begins in a school where you should be studying English, Mathematics and Science for years Eleven and Twelve. The Science subject may be a multi-element subject but ensure you include an element of physics, it may be Physics or it may be Engineering Science. Your subject choice and marks achieved should allow you to matriculate to a major university to study science. At school you should take any opportunities to develop skills in leadership, team work, awareness and co-ordination. Practise leading people; involve yourself in team or group activities; read, listen, observe, do and appreciate as much as you are able; practise and participate in eye-hand, and eye-hand-foot co-ordination activities including sports such as cricket, baseball, softball, hockey, tennis, squash and golf. It is recommended you take a full Commercial or Air Transport Pilot Licence medical examination, including a check of your hearing and eyesight before you make your subject choice for years Eleven and Twelve. The Civil Aviation Safety Authority or Flying Training organisation will support you with the details of your most convenient Approved Medical Examiner. If a flying career is to be denied to you because of medical problems it is best to know before choosing subjects for the final two years of school. After school the decision to start flying training straight away or continue study is yours. You do not require a degree to fly with Qantas as a pilot. You should plan to undertake your own flying training. Qantas does not sponsor people to learn to fly, we employ people who have: ! A Commercial Pilot Licence; ! A Command Instrument Rating; ! A multi-engine aircraft endorsement on their licence; ! Passed the Air Transport Pilot Licence theory examination and have 500 hours flying experience in command of an aircraft. After gaining your Commercial Pilot Licence you will have to find employment in the General Aviation industry. There are many different flying activities including instructing, freight, aerial tours, charter, mustering, survey, joyflights, or flying for the smaller airlines which present opportunities for pilots to build their experience to the minimum level required to join Qantas. Qantas advertises pilot vacancies in the major newspapers. These advertisements include the application criteria and a request for qualified pilots to apply. Basair Aviation College – Commercial Pilot Licence Courses 7310.25.0107 13
  14. 14. A comprehensive Pilot Selection Process, comprising assessments of abilities, personality, aptitude, medical fitness and two interviews is applied to ensure the quality of recruits entering Qantas is very high. A successful applicant will spend between four and six months training with Qantas before commencing flying on regular services. You will learn the aircraft systems, flying procedures, flight planning, navigation and emergency procedures on the aircraft simulators. You will leave the Training Centre as a Second Officer. Second Officers are carried on long-range flights so Qantas can conform to the Flight and Duty time limitations by allowing the Captain and First Officer to take rest periods off the Flight Deck. The time spent observing other crew members during takeoff and landing, plus the practice obtained by flying the aircraft in cruise, is a continuation of the learning process, begun in school, which will prepare the Second Officer for training for Promotion to First Officer. Promotion to First Officer may be offered after attaining Second Officer rank and depends on vacancies occurring, seniority, proficiency and the successful completion of the promotion course. First officers are Co-Captains. They make command decisions and judgements while operating ‘In Command Under Supervision’ of the Captain. First Officers are approved to fly the aircraft during takeoff and landing, as well as in cruise. First Officers could expect to begin Command training between three and ten years after promotion to First Officer, depending again on vacancies, seniority, proficiency and successful completion of a training course which may take up to six months. The Captain has the ultimate responsibility for each flight; for the aircraft, the crew, the passengers and the freight. Retirement age from Qantas is currently 55 years but pilots may extend their employment to 60 years by agreement with the company. Adequate superannuation is available together with other benefits which may change slightly from time to time. A Qantas pilot may expect to be away from home for up to six months a year. Most expenses incurred away from Sydney are met by Qantas. The opportunities to see the world, work with the latest technology which is maintained to the highest standards and operate as part of a highly trained, motivated and dedicated crew of professional people both in the air and on the ground is well worth the time, work and effort which begins in school and continues throughout your career as a pilot. Qantas is in a service industry which exposes it to the cycles of booms and busts in both the domestic and international economies. Cycles of growth and contraction in a pilot's employment are a result. The ‘windows of opportunity’ to join Qantas as a pilot open infrequently and irregularly and for varying lengths of time. Young people who want to fly with Qantas must be qualified and ready to apply when the ‘window’ is open. You cannot be sure there will be sufficient time to qualify before the ‘window’ closes again. You have to be prepared. Good luck with your career endeavours. If you choose aviation we are sure you will enjoy it and we hope to see you flying with Qantas.” Source: QANTAS web site.

  15. 15. Career paths There are many varied and rewarding career paths available in the aviation industry. Below is a list of the various career paths available after completion of a course of training. Keep in mind that if a career in an airline is your goal, then you will need to work in one of the following fields until such time as you have gained enough flying experience to meet the airline’s intake requirements.

Overseas student health cover is included - you don't have to worry about obtaining health insurance (as is required for your visa) - we supply coverage for you. ! A range of aircraft are used. You won't be only flying the most basic aircraft - you will gain experience on a range of aircraft types and will therefore be a better pilot. ! The flying hours in our course structure are realistic and are based on our experience in running these courses for the last 10 years. We don't quote unrealistic minimum hours that can't be achieved, and which results in additional costs. ! There are two campuses where you can undertake your course – Bankstown south west of Sydney and Cessnock/Newcastle to the north of Sydney. ! At both campuses our aircraft are parked closer to the runways than anyone else – meaning you don’t waste time taxying on the ground – and you get straight into your lesson. ! Basair was the winner of the 2005 quot;Business Awards - Aviation Businessquot;, the 2006 quot;Business Awards - Aviation Businessquot; and the 2006 quot;Business Awards – Business of the Yearquot;.
