I always knew you were too stupid to sit in the Captain's seat. Only just able to occupy the right seat. :lol: :lol: :lol:


Argh left seat for me thanks unless conducting line training for a Captain Upgrade. 8)

Or flying with another Captain in which case we alternate sector to sector.

We do 2 captains a lot because of some of the contract stipulations we have for Government, Oul and Gas, and dignitaries.

Line trainers get to sit in either seat dependant on whether we are line training an FO or an FO is doing Pilot In Command Under Supervision or we are training another Captain.

Pull the other one, it's got bells on it :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:


We fly right seat on a regular basis.

When we are carrying people like Shinzo we have 2 captains. That is a Commonwealth requirement.

When we carry a PM, or doing jobs to Pine Gap, we have 2 Captains. When we have PICUS, FO sits in the left.

When I get checked in the sim, I have to do half of it in the right because I have Line Training approval under CAR 247.

A normal line Captain can only sit in the left. Unless they are flying with another Captain then it’s sector by sector.

Listen, you've done well. I couldn't even manage the right seat so don't be ashamed of your achievement. One thing though, you are not left seat material. :lol: :lol:

Why thank you MR.

The last time I was in the right seat as an FO was about 10 years ago. Not anymore.

Been flying for far too long. For customs I was check and training, now I am line training but have been offered a spot as a sim checker which I won't take. Offered as an inducement to stay with my current employer as they believed I was off at least prior to COVID.

There are only 2 other pilots with more hours than me. One was the former manager of Flight ops, now semi retired and only works the Sim and the other is Manager of Safety, who works as a consultant and use to work for CASA. The former was a Canberra pilot for the RAAF and the latter was C130 for the RAAF. The current Chief Pilot was a P3 pilot and has similar hours to be and exactly the same age.

We have 27 captains all up, and our youngest one is 28 years old.

There are a few captains older than me but with less experience. 6 from the RAAF, and all earmarked for higher because that's just they way it works.

Our oldest FO is early 40s as he started late and is up for an upgrade as soon as COVID is over. Most of our FOs are in their 20s and 30s. Our youngest is 22.

Also, I am one of 3 with a Grade 1 training approval and can do Jet Transition, and sign off on Multi Engine Instrument ratings.

The only way you can convince me is to offer me a free flight on my next visit to downunder. A flight you'll be on duty for. I'd be happy to fly from Sydney to Melbourne and back. :lol: :lol:

the next time I will get to occupy the right seat is if COVID finishes and I actually get to go to my next employer and then I will only be in that seat for 6 to 18 months max.

Melbourne is out of control.

It just amazes me how we have extremely low numbers in every other state apart from Melbourne which is on an exponential COVID curve.

And the weird thing is that Victoria had the toughest restrictions. Go figure that one.

So this COVID thing doesn't obey rules.

Can anyone explain why only Melbourne has been hit hard and not the rest of the country?
