  1. Hi everyone I am a B1 licensed aircraft engineer applying for a Northern Territory state sponsored Visa. I am 24 years old and have been working for a major airline in the UK for 7 years. I was after some advice as to how likely it is my visa application will go through and what the work opportunities are like for an AME in Northern Territory. I know they are very broad questions and any help is appreciated, many thanks.
  2. Hello I'm new to this forum & please excuse me if I'm posting something discussed earlier. I'm a Sri Lankan citizen. I've completed my higher studies in UK in the field of EASA Part 66 Aircraft Maintenance Engineering ( B1 Mechanical). This is not a degree however the main requirement to obtain the Aircraft Engineer's Licence. The certificate is issued and recognized by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and after minimum of 2 year of work experience I'll be eligible to apply for the Aircraft Engineers Licence. Currently I'm working at Sri Lankan airlines as an aircraft technician. I've now gained work experience of 1 year. Here's the matter ..... I was so interested to move to Australia after I got sufficient work experience. However unfortunately the New SOL does not consist Aircraft Maintenance Engineering. I'd be really greatful if someone could tell me about the other options available to me to move to Australia once I've gained enough experience. Thanks in advance
  3. Hello all Still plodding through the Visa process (state sponsorship) and we have got to the point where we must decide on which state would offer us the best opportunities, preferably South. I'm an Aircraft Maintenance Engineer (Mechanical) (unlicenced) and we have looked at each states SOL. WA: is out of the question at the moment as we are not on their SOL. SA: I'm on their list but there are some conditions to be met, I read this to be that you must gain work experience in this state, can anyone clarify this? Victoria: I'm on their list with no conditions so this may be a possibility. NSW: This state is broken down into four areas and the SOL for each does not include any Aircraft trades. I get the impression that there is not a great requirement for aircraft engineers on a state sponsorship visa and yet this occupation is on the skills shortage list for Australia. I would be grateful if anyone could confirm my findings or offer some advice. Thank you all Ian and Debbie
  4. Hello all, After a lot of dithering as to whether to or not, thought it might be useful to start this thread for all those Aircraft Engineers out there who are intending / or have already started / passed their TRA assessment via Victoria University. Our story: OH is avionics with 25 yrs military experience and we're all set to start our skills assessment, but we have been advised that we may be wasting our money as he doesn't hold civilian licenses or an 'official' log book. He's completed the initial online Tradeset assessment with no problems, so as an initial guideline we think this is a positive indication. We personally, and no doubt all others in the same situation, would be really grateful to hear of how your application is going, timelines whether you have civilian licenses or not, log books etc. Any advice you can give really. I do know that clarification on this issue has been been requested by at least one migration agent ( to both Vic Uni and TRA) but as yet a definitative reply hasn't been given from either to say if they are a pre-requisite or not...very frustrating! Our understanding is that under the previous guidelines, before the assessment switched to Vic Uni, that you didn't have to have civilian licenses and that providing a very in depth breakdown of jobs, experience, tools used etc. (all signed off) was sufficient. Is anyone out there in a similar situation or had their assessment application acknowledged /approved without licenses? Thanks, E&A
  5. Hi, We're pulling together paperwork for our TRA assesment. My husband has worked as an electrical technician on helicopters for about 13 years. Avionics technician has just been removed from the SOL (which is the most natural choice of occupation title for him) but is currently on the NT and ACT lists for state sponsorship but if possible we'd like to get him in as an electrical engineer technician which is on the SOL and gives us more flexibility about where we move to without the restrictions of staying in a specific state for two years. His qualifications and apprenticeship are all in general electrical and electronic engineering but obviously his work experience has all been doing electrics on on aircrafts. Does anyone have any experience of putting forward a TRA assessment for an occupation that straddles two job titles? Will the TRA literally just check his experience and qualifications against a checklist of standards for the role of electrical engineering technician or do they review him and then pigeon hole him into the most suitable category? It's really tricky as his experience and qualifications would allow him to work on trains, boats, cars etc so in that respect it's unfair to limit him to being an aircraft technician. Our migration agent is going to review all of his evidence and then advise us which occupation she thinks we need to go for but I just wondered if anyone on here had any experience or trying to nominate an occupation that isn't necessarily exactly the job they have been doing? Also, do the TRA speak to your employers too? Would he need to specify a particular person for them to contact as we haven't told his work we're hoping to emigrate as it's such early days in the process. Thanks a lot. Any advice would be really welcome.
  6. I hope my experience is helpful to any engineers trying to convert to the Aussie licence system. I am a type rated B2 engineer in the UK but also hold a B1 with no type ratings, and have had issues with my electrical cover as the Aussie licence system does not gel with EASA 66 licences. I have been granted Instrument and Radio credits in line with my A320/21, A330, B757 & B767 but have lost my meager electrical cover afforded to me by my B2 (no grandfather rights) CASA do not recognise LWTR's and will only grant you the credits towards an Aus licence if you hold a type on your licence and a company approval for at least 6 months related to your UK licence. I have held my B1 for over 6 months and have carried out an A330 B1 type course I also have over 10 years experience on type with a log book to support the last year or so, I am awaiting an engine course so I can apply for my UK type rating (end of this month). Even with this ammount of supporting data CASA still would not grant me my electrics on the A330. My life now hangs in limbo as Visa's are in place and job in Perth is waiting. If anyone needs any help converting their licences or understanding the CASA licencing system I have now got a reasonable understanding of how to apply and how it all works thanks to my misfortunes let me know and I will see fi I can assist. :arghh:
  7. Debruin Aeromaintenance in Mount Gambier, South Australia (the green part) is looking for suitably EASA qualified B1 and B2 engineers - Google Debruin Group and look in the positions vacant section
  8. Hi everybody! I got my 175 visa last month and now trying to decide where to land in Australia. It seems that it's going to be quite difficult to find an aircraft maintenance or avionics job in the Oz, so I'd like to increae my chances by going to the right state. I know that Victoria sponsors AMEs, but a Quantas Heavy Maintenance Base in Melbourne was shut down a while ago and so there still might be many unemployed AMEs looking for a job in VIC. Looking at seek.com.au it seems that there are positions in QLD, so maybe it's better to go to Brisbane? I'm really confused. Can anyone help me with a useful piece of advice? Thank you so much! If someone has contacts in any Australian airline or MRO or is an aviation employer themselves, I'd be more than happy to send you my CV, a cover letter, AML, qualifications and any other documents you may require. I'm a Licensed AME (Avionics - B2) here in Russia, but I'm undoubtedly ready to start it all over again and work as a ground handling mechanic or a baggage handler. I will then certainly try to convert my license to CASA B2 as I'm eligible for CTC assessment. I'm just limited in money, so I can't be looking for a suitable job for a long time. Any help is deeply appreciated. Thank you very much.
  9. Hi all, Just wondering if anyone could possibly help. I have the 175 visa, and we are looking to come over to Aus within the next couple of months. The only problem is that due to having a 5 year old and 9 month old baby, I need to get work pretty sharp, with as minimal moving around as poss. We are looking at either Perth, Brisbane or NSW, or possibly Melbourne but can't really determine where has the most work. I've looked at seek etc, but would appreciate it if anyone could give me a heads up, or perhaps the names of agencies who handle contract work. I've worked both civillian and miltary aircraft, mainly structures. Many thanks, Chris:biggrin:
  10. Hi anyone know of any aircraft work for an aircraft fitter no licenses in or around the perth area or amybe where the best place to look is cheers

  12. Hi all, After lots of researching we have decided Oz is definatly where we want to be. We are a family of 4 with 2 small children aged 2 and 6. My hubby is currently an Aircraft Engineer in the Royal Navy with 12 years experience. He doesnt have civillian qualifications and we have seen conflicting information as to wether he would qualify to go on the SOL as he is now or complete his civvy licenses? Has anyone any advice on the first steps we need to take? Any advice would be very gratefully recieved :wub:
  13. Hello everyone - still quite new to this forum. My family and I are looking at moving to Melbourne in August this year and wondered if anyone had any contacts in the airports. I am an Aircraft Maintenance Engineer (Avionics) with over 20 years of experience with the RAF. Can't wait to move to OZ, we are coming across in March to have a good look around to try and get our bearings before the final move in August. Regards, Pete

    Aircraft Engineers

    Hi, any aircraft engineers here? :huh:
  16. Hi, I'm hoping someone can help. My hubby is a aircraft maintenance engineer, airframes. We were state sponsored by WA for our visa & made the move here 3 months ago. As yet there has only been 1 job advertised for his sort of work! He is not licenced, as he never had the opportunity where he worked in the UK. He did his training in the RAF & after that worked at Airbus UK, all in all has 20 years experience. Does anybody know of any jobs going in WA or companies he could contact??? Any help would be much appreciated, we are getting a bit desperate now!:goofy:

    Your help really needed!?

    Hello all, myself (Kimi) and my patner (Ads) are U.K citizens and we are looking to migrate to Oz on a permanent basis, we have researched to great depths and spoken with various agents and we getting completely mixed advice! We hope to move there on a permanent basis, my partner used to work as an aircraft engineer and is 35 years old this year. Myself I am studying Landscape gardening and will complete this course and become fully qualified in sept 2011. My age is 26. (Both of these skills are on the occupation demand list for Oz) We have been advised to apply for a permanent visa from the U.K, as Ads has no option to go on any other visa due to his age restricting him from visiting on a Working holiday visa. I, on the other hand would be able to do this as I am still within the age bracket. Once there I would be able to apply for a permanent visa and 'apparently' this would be much easier to obtain then applying for a permanent visa from the U.K?? Does anyone have any advice for us on this matter as we are very unsure which is the best route for us to take. If we apply for a permanent visa from the UK, Ads will have to find work again within aircraft engineering for 12 months before he can even begin to apply for any visa. This means waiting for another 12 -18 months before we can find out if our application is successful or not. We was also wondering about the difference being married would make to either scenario, as our families will be still here and unable to travel due to illness we was considering a wedding before leaving the UK. We hope you can offer your help with this one! :laugh::cool:

  22. Hi All I'm looking to move to Aus in the next year and am hoping to secure a job as a electrical maintenance/manufacturing engineer/technician. What i am trying to find out is what the average salary is that i could possibly be earning? If anyone could be of any assistance or could even give any advise on the the aviation industry in Aus as a whole it would be very much appreciated. Cheers Matt :biggrin:
  23. I have just loged my skills assessment with the TRA for Aircraft Technician Mechanical. This will hopefully come back successful. I will then apply for my 175 visa, as a Cat 4 I am hopeful we should have a visa by Xmas 2010. I have a total of 20 years experience in the RAF as an aircraft technician mechanical after completing a 3 year apprenticeship (airframe/propulsion) in 1990, with all my work being carried out on helicopters. Is it too early to start applying for vacancies? Does anyone have any contacts in the Adelaide area for this type of work? My reason for choosing Adelaide is that I have heard it is the Hub of Defence work, but I have also heard that you have to be a permanent resident for most of these jobs. Because I am on a permanent visa does this mean I will have to wait for two years or will I be eligable to work in this field as soon as I arrive? I would love to arrive in Australia with a job offer, has anybody on POI managed to achieve this? Thanks in advance for any assistance with my questions.
  24. Im due to land in Perth this sunday and just wondered if anyone has any connections in the aircraft industry. I am a fully licensed aircraft engineer so maybe someone in the airlines industry would be a great help. Paul:wink:
  25. Hi all, I am an Aircraft Technician Mechanical, aged 39 so with all my points added up it comes to 120. I have read somewhere that for a Skilled 175 Visa you need to have passed the IELTS test.....is this true??? Any help will be greatly appreciated.
