What are upgrade times looking like?
Under the current plan and you meet the upgrade requirements it would be about 6-8 months.

If you don't meet the upgrade requirements then you'd fit into a matrix depending on previous experience.

Re: Enerjet

Max and they're requiring everyone interviewed to sign non disclosure agreements so there won't be much info out there.

Only interviewing western pilots at the moment for a YYC base. I understand they'll be crewing a YYZ base at some later date after launch.

Sounds more like a pissing match between KFC and Flair, and possibly some poor accounting on Flair’s part.

KFC giving notice to collect $200K in 5 days, or else, when Flair still owes them $4M in leases?

Something else is going on.
probably a lot closer to the truth of the matter

That seems like a good old boy statement. I'll go one further, ass holes and tyrants also create large smoking holes. It boils down to managing and using resources and assets at your disposal.

Re: What do you do when you think someone should never fly again?

In a 705 level operation these types will eventually get washed out by the training department, either through failed initial, line indoc or recurrent. Or if they are able to just scrape by then they will remain career FO's. If you have serious concerns then you should bring that up to your chief pi...

Re: Airline lifestyle

I'd suggest you thing long and hard about that.

Commuting sucks...some make it work but no one likes it. If it's a short term for a year or so until you move then it's doable. long term, especially with a young family you're not going to like it.

Flair is actively hiring. There haven't been any layoffs.

They did close the YYC and YLW bases, but everyone was accommodated either in YEG or YVR/YXX
