  1. First post from a newbie here so hope I am using the correct section for this question. My husband is a helicopter pilot and we hope to move to Oz with our young son. At the moment we are struggling to find out what we need to do to facilitate this move. We are waiting on a couple of agents to get back to us (they have requested the info from CASA) but wondered if any of you knowledgable PIO's had any idea. My husband has a UK license and we had hoped that he would be able to convert this once we had the visa but both agents approached so far have said that they think the Australian License needs to be done before a visa application. CASA have not updated their website since pilot was added to the SOL so there is no info there. At a cost of approx £6000 to convert the license with no idea if you will indeed be granted a visa seems a bit harsh. Perhaps being new to all this we are not being realistic about the costs, time and hoop hopping required to make our dream a reality. Any advice/experiences shared appreciated.

    Hi, Im still on my mission for residency, and now have an offer for a job and sponsorship working as a pilot. however, i only have 4months experience. I need help to figure out if Im even eligible for the visa now that ive got a job offer. Im already In WA on a student visa but would love to swop visas and fly full time & eventually get residency, I have a degree but its in an unrelated area & Im fully qualified with licenses ect which Ive gained In WA over the last 2years. any help would be awesome. cheers, Owen.
  3. Hi folks, A quick search revealed absolutely no hits for PPLs, but I guess that's not surprising. I wonder - is anyone who moved over an ex-recreational pilot in the UK (I fly 3-axis microlights), and how hard did you find it to continue your hobby over in Australia? Thanks! D
  4. Hi, Could anybody give me any information on what the job market is like for ex military pilots in Oz? Thanks in advance.

  6. Hi, My hubbie is a ROV pilot working world wide in the oil and gas industry. We were wondering if anyone else does this job from Oz, and if there would be a preferred place to live in Oz to make work easier? Thanks for any info Gill x:unsure:

    I've recently had a couple of trial Helicopter pilot lessons, and I am considering training for my Private and then possibly Commercial pilots license. Would I be able to get sponsorship as a helicopter pilot? Would I be better training in Australia? I think it will be cheaper, and would this increase my chances of being able to get residency? Thanks in advance, M
