Go to Qantas web site and check it out.
It has all the details you need, or ring them up.

No Australian airline requires pilots to know how to operate boeing or airbus. Experiance on Tupolev counts too. Only thing is to get permision to work in Australia, and taking tests to get australian licences.

Thanks Yeeha and PolAir.
But can he learn how to operate a Boeing or an Airbus in Australia, or would he be send overseas?

I think he will have to get his australian commercial license and then get hired by a airline who operate such planes.I'm sure there are training school for Airbus or Boeing in Australia.

Qantas does 99% of conversion training in Sydney or Melbourne, only the occasional course goes to Seattle (or soon Toulouse) for training.
