Re: CMA

FO's are mid 30's and Capts are 63-64 ish to start if you don't meet contrails and 83ish to start if you do meet them. 18 days a month and pay not based on credit hours mean that most pilost burnout in 2 years. I figured out for Aug I am looking 97 credits worth of flying but since we aren't paid by...

Re: Central Mountain Air

I just looked at the current draft that came out for July and the crewing levels are

CYYC Dornier (3 planes) = 4 Capts based in CYYC + 2 Capts who are management based in Smithers. 5 FO's
CYYC Dash 1 300 = 1 Capt 0 FO's
CYVR Dash 2 100's = 3 Capts 2 FO's (1 Capt and 1 FO in gorundschool / sim)

Re: Central Mountain Air

You are correct, they do go by seniority but also (somewhat) by experience and time on type. What I mean by that is that if a pilot was trained on the 1900 8 months ago then they would stand almost zero chance of going on the 705 machines. The company won't spend the money on initial training on a 1...

Re: Central Mountain Air

Wakco's wage is accurate. The reason for the adds coming out is that the vast majority of the 1900 fo's simply weren't willing to take upgrades on either the 1900's or the 705 machines. They understand the reality that there isn't any point in staying when they could just wait for Jazz. 1900 pilots ...

Re: AirSprint Fleet Transition

The company I currently work for isn't unionized and does about 40% charter and 60% sked work and is able to still pump out a schedule for its pilots every month. I'm sure Air Sprint does spend a large amount of money on airline tickets for their pilots. I'm also sure that they only spend that money...

Re: AirSprint Fleet Transition

I interviewed there about 6 months ago and walked out hoping to never hear from them. They have some type of schedule but said that they would move your days off at any point if it was operationally necessary. Overtime would be payed but it was no where near enough to compensate even concert tickets...

Re: For all the Courtesy Air Alumni out there

The reason for the shutdown was two-fold, and a bit complicated. First of all they had been running thru ops managers for years. In the 4 years I was there I saw 4 ops managers come and go plus another guy show up and left after a week. This problem was mitigated by the fact the CP had been a long t...

Re: Encore's Pay and Work Conditions

WJ started in the mid 90's. Anyone with a brain can go onto google and put that starting wage into an inflation calculator and let me know what that "starting wage" looks like compared to the "starting wage" in todays money at Encore. If you still feel these low cost carriers are offering a fair wag...
