Re: Canada Jetlines

The website is all media and financial. There's no "Careers Section", not that I could find at least Far right tab "Contact", third option down "Careers", bottom of the page has the job postings. To be fair on their old site it was VERY buried. This one... Semi buried. Especially considering they l...

Thanks for the detailed explanation. It really feels like your initial course should burn a course. Cause you get what you get.

Re: Interim bid out

Basically as I understand it, flat pay is much lower than any other WBFO. You can only get off flat pay early by bidding to captain ~2 years currently, and with course rights you can't get back to WBFO.

Which airport has this kind of common sense security folks?
Fredericton NB. You have to go put your own checked luggage through the scanner it's so small. But I never seem to have screening issues. Usually older more experienced security personnel.

Re: WestJet Encore Pilot Open House Calgary September 4th

I laugh at how some of you are shocked at the notion of a 250hr FO being a possibility at Encore. The writing has been on the wall the past few years. With the way the industry and pilot supply is going, it’s guaranteed to happen at some point (if it hasn’t all ready). Jazz has been doing it succes...

Re: Realistic TT for Jazz or Encore?

The real problem is, as so many have stated before, that at the 705 level seniority is life. Low timers would be dumb not to jump ship (especially if at one of the many dead end 703 jobs) to get that seniority number as early as possible.

So wait... Are you guys seriously taking 250 hr pilots now? Or just an "early connections" type deal where you get their info and come back at 1000 hrs?

Re: When Should a New Pilot Begin Applying ?

Altiplano is right. Hiring is at break neck speeds these days. Before I would have suggested applying early get your name out there, but now you basically have to be ready to go the cal/ start date if successfull will come fast. Good luck!

Re: Direct Entry Captain Course

Zero 705 command time? Of course they have zero before upgrading at what would be their first 705 company. Frig, places like sky are where you go after the 703/704 world. You don't go sideways from one 705 over to sky. "Nailed it"? Hardly.

Re: Piston versus turbine engines.

Piston has a less involved start process (usually) That's not been the case for any piston I've flown, whereas every turbine has been about as complicated as throwing a match into a puddle of kerosene. Operationally less involved as well. Keep the needles out of the red. Not exactly rocket applianc...

Re: Piston versus turbine engines.

I think that's all going to come down to the specific turbine and specific piston. Some turbines have temp limiters and torque limiters and a new pilot can't mess much up, or they have neither and more caution has to be used. Piston has a less involved start process (usually) but depending on the mo...

Re: Pilot Shortage / Minimums /disconnect

Screen him, but the point stands the pool of "1500 hr guys looking for 1900 FO positions" is limited, where as the pool of "250-500 looking for anything" is much larger with therefore a higher likelyhood of finding that exceptional beginner.

Yes that's exactly what he's said multiple times. He believes in this market where 800 hrs can get you into the regionals that the 1500 hr guy who goes to the 1900 probably has been PFO'd from the better options.
