Plus if you bid to Rouge you can make substantially more if you are willing to pick up draft.

Re: Westjet v. Jazz

I’d also add a PFO from AC doesn’t mean they won’t take you. There are lots of pilots who got in on their second try and a few on their third try.

Re: Typical New Hire RP Schedule.

Thanks for the correction altiplano I though it was 20. A few years ago when the RP course was a lot shorter the amount of training wasn’t very much. But now an RP course is basically a full FO course. So I’m also surprised the company doesn’t do away with it.

Re: Typical New Hire RP Schedule.

Depends. I was a RP in YYZ for 8 months. I was able to hold a block as soon as I was line checked. 20 days of reserve per month.

Re: Typical New Hire RP Schedule.

Depends, it could be as little as 9. Or if you don’t hold a block you might be home all month. I new guys who were RPs on the 87 and couldn’t hold a block, they didn’t get called out much.

Incorrect. Seniority is part of it but there is an command interview and command sim evaluations.

Re: Logging cruise relief time outside of Canada

I’d listen to what Skykiwi is saying about CX. Just look at the amount of guys leaving CX for AC recently taking a huge pay cut some after 10 years. Also guys going to CX now better be prepared to live in Hong Kong for the rest of your career. If you have 250 hours go have fun flying an aircraft. Yo...

My bet isn’t that Onex sells off Encore it’s that they buy Transat and merge it into Westjet.

Nolinor is another Northern 705 that goes into basically the same places as Buffalo with a better record. But they are using cv580s and 737-200s.

Re: Atlas Air 767

Looks like inadvertent TOGA activation and the FO thinking they were about to stall. He then pushed to a 40 degree nose down attitude. The captain yanked so hard back on his control column that it disconnected from the elevators. Once they were below the cloud deck the FO tried to recover but it was...
