DAC Aviation

Hello,

Has anybody here worked for this company? I see they have a captain position in Nairobi. I think I might be interested, but I'm having a hard time finding much info on it.

Feel free to pm if you work or have worked for them.

Cheers!

Re: Resumes and Cover Letters Redux

back to working on my resume... I saw you mentioned including your licence number in your resume. Can I ask why is that? Can they tell something by my licence number I should know about? (i.e. how much I can BS about my qualifications :wink: joking!) Another question: Someone said not to bother appl...

Re: Resumes and Cover Letters Redux

What do you guys think about including M.A. and B.A. after your name at the top of the resume? Also, do people put CPL Multi IFR after their name?
Thanks

Re: Low time pilot pool

Ok, I guess they are called hiring pools here. Just to make it clear we are talking about the same thing though... Is it the case that in these hiring pools guys get their CPL and Multi IFR with IATRA, then work on the ramp while waiting for their name to come up (based on seniority I guess). Then w...

Re: Low time pilot pool

Low time pool is a program where pilots who have low time (250h for example) work their way up to getting a shot at being on the right seat of an aircraft. I guess not many operators do it then?

Low time pilot pool

Howdy all,
Looking to see if you guys know of companies that have low time pilot pools? I know Central Mountain air has it, but are there others? Doesn't matter where in Canada either.

Do employers actually look at any of your results from your tests etc. when you are getting job?

Thanks for the replies. For sure, all of us are looking to make a living, no question about that. What do you all think about airlines vs bush flying? I know there is a lot more money in airlines, but I figured bush flying would be more interesting and fun. I've also thought about commuters. How is ...

Re: How do I get a flying job as soon as possible?

Big Piston has it right. I also have personal reasons for getting into aviation which I'm not getting into, besides to say it's not because I'm looking to become rich. I'd also rather do something I enjoy than make "good money" doing something I hate. In any case, what am I & rest of the thousands o...

It's pretty easy. If you did well on the private, you should do well on this one. Not much different. Disagree. Need to know a way broader array of things much more accurately for the CPL.

Re: How do I get a flying job as soon as possible?

Where can you get "pilot skills and experience"? Being on the right seat (or flying easy runs to start) gets my vote over working on the ramp/dock. Why is it disturbing to you that every pilot wants to actually start flying as soon as possible? My comment was in response to this. I know what you ar...

Ville, what pilot skills and experience do you have that would persuase an employer to upgrade you fast. I can not think of anything more disturbing than a new pilot that thinks they should be upgraded fast. Where can you get "pilot skills and experience"? Being on the right seat (or flying easy ru...
