Re: King Air at Gillam, MB

This got me thinking. If they were going YWG-YYQ, why didn’t they at some point say “Oh @#$!, we’re low on gas.” Divert to YTH which is on the way, get some gas then sheepishly explain their mistake to company.

YWG Commuting

I'm new to the commuting game and curious if anyone past or present had and tips or advice for someone new to commuting. I'll be YYZ based and recently I've been looking at the loads and most look oversold. Obviously the 737 MAX has a bit to do with this? Lets say you have a flight the next day what...

Yep still waiting also. 4 weeks today
If you’ve passed the 4 week mark after interviewing that’s usually a good sign.
Folks have been rejected after 3 months and accepted after 3 and 1/2
Hence why I said usually.

Re: Ramp Wait Times

Should be no reason to take a ramp spot right now with how things are going. That being said if you have bills to pay and mouths to feed I wouldn’t except anything with a wait time of more than 3-4 months.

Re: New Livery

At first I thought this was a joke or someone misinformed. The livery looks like it would be some African carrier that just so happens to have the same name and someone snapped a picture of it. Not sure what they’re thinking unless it’s to get people talking about it.

Re: Why does everyone want to work at Air Canada?

A big draw for me that the others don’t offer is a wide variety of flying. Want to fly a 777 on long haul flights all over the world? AC offers that. Want to fly more domestic routes on a narrow-body? AC offers that. Want to do “vacation” flying down to the Caribbean? AC offers that.

Also heard they’re going to announce Fire suppression, general transportation then the air ambulance in that order. Likely delays between the announcements.

Has anyone applied OTS over the last 1-2 years and not heard a thing? If so, what type of experience did you apply with?
Applied just under a year ago when the OTS posting first showed up in Oct 2017. Had 3500 then. Just got an email the other day for the video interview.

Hmmm it’s a long shot with only King Air time. I’d suggest going out and buying yourself a Dash-8 typerating. If you have the cash book an RJ sim for better chances. Checkout CAE or Flightsafety.

Interesting. I can see why they don’t want the old NDB approach but what’s the actual cost of upkeep for a GPS approach. The biggest thing I can see this effecting is MEDEVAC operations.
