Aviation in Australasia
Fifty one international airlines operate scheduled services to/from Australia with passenger traffic increasing 6.8% over the 12 months from June 2013- June 2014.
What is it like to be a pilot in Australasia?
Whilst opportunities in Australia and New Zealand tend to be fairly limited due to the supply of home grown aviators being relatively robust in these regions, they do arise.
In this region, the demands on pilots are comparable to those imposed by European and American operators as operational organisation tends to be as robust as the EASA and FAA. Distance, however, means that full relocation or a month-on-month-off roster are the only sensible possibilities.
Assessment and selections
The recruitment and assessment requirement is relatively standard and will involve an interview and simulator assessment.
To give yourself the best chance of selection, we recommend the following:
• Thorough paperwork preparation;
• Pre-practice for the SIM sessions;
• Understanding of the relevant CAA licensing expectations.
