Re: You need post secondary to work at CargoJet

They're already there. I know a handful of 767 guys/gals that are on LOAs from AC and went to Cargojet.

Most folks get the call within a week of their references getting called. The calls might not necessarily go out to the references for a few months.

Re: Socialized Bidding (Rouge)

As a junior pilot at AC I'm enjoying the socialized bidding at Rouge. My first year at the company and I got Xmas and New Years off. I had a "crappy" rest of my block but I was expecting and prepared for that. So far I've got practically all the days off I needed even during the summer. I'm a commut...

Re: Air Canada Pay

Is 75-80k a year gross do-able for a first year AC FO with max overtime or am I dreaming? If you get on with Rouge and pick up a draft trip only once a month that would be very easy to do. Picking up a LAS turn at first year pay gets you just shy of $800 before tax. The whole OT thing is likely goi...

Re: Coffee in a Thermos and security

Coffee in a Thermos and security

Getting really sick of the on board coffee and I'm looking at taking my own Thermos to bring my own coffee with me. I have a 1.9L Stanley, so it's a little on the large side and completely metal. Anyone have any problems with security, specifically internationally?

Well if we are counting 703-705-AC then yes I came from 703 to AC.
Just to clarify I was flying “705 Bush Cargo” then went back to 703 MEDEVAC then AC.
So you had 705 time.
Exactly.

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.

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.
