Yup, I now the B1 is not technically correct, but I am there on business and there aren't any more correct options so business is my answer.

Re: Do you check your killer items just prior to takeoff?

Just before takeoff I recheck the Takeoff performance. That’s in addition to the 5+ times it gets checked or cross checked in the SOPs. Just one final check to make sure we’re not 100 tonnes out. It wouldn’t be the first time that happened if we were. Also recheck gear and flaps on short final despi...

Re: New drone rules for Canada...

"You can't pilot a drone while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, or within 12 hours of consuming alcohol;"

12 hours? Isn't that more restrictive than being an actual pilot?

Re: Career First Officer at AC by design?

Line 3 "Pilots flying pay" shows YTD 765 hours and and $192,257. Thats $251.30/hour. How do you achieve that? Year 12 777 FO pay is $180.28 day and $197.49 night. Add $6.55 international pay and even a 100% night and international schedule would only get you $204.04/hour.

Like everything at AC; it's complicated, not necessarily secretive. Your pay is not purely based on an hourly rate, it is broken down to the minute. Each month has a different DBM. There are day/night differences, step differences, Overseas premium (some a/c), Navigation premium (some a/c), AVO pre...

AC pay rates

I was looking through the AC collective agreement and see the various pay calculations (weight, speed, basic, nav, night..etc) but I couldn't see an actual combined pay scale anywhere. Is there a published, blended hourly rate that includes all of the above or do you just have to calculate it yourse...

Re: 2018 Pilot Hiring

So what could a new DEC expect pay wise?

Are hours flown on GDOs paid in addition to your monthly guarantee?

Is there much opportunity for GDO flying?

Are DECs likely to be forced on European assignments? That'd be hard to do with school age kids unless it was July and August only.

So what’s the captain pay?

Pilot jobs network shows year 1 CA pay at $80/hr topping out at $125 in year 5. Top Fo pay is shown at $75/hr? Is that accurate? If so how do senior FOs make $130-150k as a previous poster said?

Re: Norwegian Air

It’s your wishful thinking to work for sub par wages? I did a quick google search and see that an FO starts at 5000 Euro base salary for the wide body and 4000 for the 737. That converts to $7500/6000 CAD per month or $90,000/72,000 per year. After 5 years at Encore what does a year one FO make at ...
