Air New Zealand gender equity experiment

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 11:05 am Sat 10th February 2018

Sources indicate that men need not apply for the time being.

In a step to upwardly adjust the ratio of female to male pilots a policy of hiring female only applicants is in place.

Further information in relation to this especially any knowledge of a government directive would be welcome.

My genuine concern here would be that our best pilots may look elsewhere rather than tolerate second best if our best male pilots are driven overseas for work.

Wouldn’t you jump ship now while those oportunuties are still available, before the young bucks get ahead of you.

Know anyone in the industry?


  1. Apparently this hasn’t worked because women don’t want to be pilots.

  3. I didn’t have time to read it, but I did see a Stuff headline on this yesterday. You might be able to find something out there.
