Re: Porter

Pay rates are still the same as they have been for a few years now.
Upgrade is sitting at about 2.5 years
20 days work per month maximum with 10 days off. Depeninding on your schedule this might mean working less then 20 days.

Re: CYTZ landing slots?

My old man has flown to YTZ on his 180 (floats) while he was not doing charters (just boring holes in the sky) I believe he just contacted Trans Capital and they meet him at the float dock. I think they are the ones who maintain it.

Re: Porter

Classes for the remainder of this year have been cancelled. At this stage we have been told that hiring/upgrades will resume in the new year.

I am not sure about interviews, but I would imagine that they would hold them this year.

Re: Porter Opinions

I am currently flying as an FO with Porter, having joined in 2012. Great place to work, good group of people. WRT City Hall, etc I think many people from within have all asked themselves what the future will hold. At this stage it really is a guessing game but I personally believe we will remain on ...

Re: Porter's future

my definition of a contaminated rwy is the one we use for the Q400 and is defined by a rwy which is more than 25% covered in width, length with standing water, slush or snow or 100% compact snow yes I would agree that YTZ has a crfi several times throughout the winter but is not contaminated due to ...

The majority of the people who took the YHZ base are from out East and are happy to sit and wait for a left seat position to open but as someone earlier on mentioned that pro...

Re: Air New Zealand asking Immigration to import foreign pil

Having working for an Air NZ subsidiary I can pretty much guarantee that mainline will not accept candidates with those minimums. I would find it hard to believe that even the domestic turbo prop will take people with those times. When I got hired I have about 1200 hours TT. I know my mates back dow...
