QantasLink Trainee First Officers Wanted


Job description


  • Challenge yourself to reach new heights in a dynamic and varied flying role
  • Full time position
  • Adelaide, Brisbane, Cairns, Melbourne, Mildura or Sydney base


At QantasLink, we connect Australia, from our beaches right through to the bush. As Australia’s largest regional airline we provide a vital link between 58 metropolitan and regional ports, operating over 2,000 flights each week across Australia.


At QantasLink, we’ve got some of the best flying you can do. We’re proud to represent regional Australia and be a part of its communities. By taking off from our capital cities and touching down in our regional ports we get the best of both worlds, experiencing the true beauty of our nation. At QantasLink, we’re one big family. Flying with QantasLink keeps us close to home, and that’s just the way we like it. We’re a loyal, close-knit team with years of experience between us.


At QantasLink, our fleet comprises some of the fastest turbo props flying regional Australia. Our modern fleet of Dash-8, Q400, 300 and 200 aircraft proudly service Regional Australia. Our turbo props bring Australia closer together, connecting regional locations with our capital cities. For our pilots this represents a unique flying experience. It’s challenging hands-on piloting, navigating our way from busy major airports into regional ports. As a QantasLink pilot, we’re serious about looking after our customers. When we take control in the flight deck we’re not in view of our customers, but they always remain at the forefront of our mind.


Alongside our commitment to safety, we do our best to see to our customers’ needs to make flying with us memorable.
