Re: 17 year TA?

We had a great chance to have solid Jazz fella in charge of Alpa Canada but two LEC Representatives at Jazz felt a Westjet pilot who has his application in at AC was a better choice. It was definitely time for change at the Canada Board. Disagree. Brian Shury was the only right choice for the posit...

Re: Will it pass?

I work 13 days a month, make $100k right now and don't have a degree. I'd say I'm doing just fine and enjoy my life in Canada. Close to friends and family. I'll take another 17 years of that, vs uncertainty especially in aviation. Honestly, who am I to argue about what is good and what is not? Afte...

Re: Air Canada and Westjet...what a joke

Policies are now being released for hospitals and they are not implementing any sort of ban. It's simply "do it on your own time, off the property, be fit for work and there's no problems".

You should have zero tolerance for people who show up under the influence.

Air Canada has gone beyond it. Why hasn't Tr...

Sadly this may be the only option if the WJ pilot group wish to protect their scope and future earnings. While unpalatable, best to draw the line while there is still something left to protect.

Details I have (not confirmed) is that a Sunwing 737 under tow hit a WJ 737 on the apron in YYZ and caused the APU to catch fire resulting in an evacuation for WJ. More to come I'm sure.

Re: PML between Express Carriers

Re: PML between Express Carriers

What you quoted is what it is. It is NOT true that by leaving one Express carrier for another you lose the ability to participate in the PML. Perhaps if you were in the process (ie: had an interview) you'll have to restart at the new carrier. But I personally know of people who have left an Express ...
