Re: Low Timer, not complaining

The 2 year + wait is total BS. If you are working a bush operation then maybe some time (6 months) on the ramp to learn the operation is a good thing but beyond that the company is just taking advantage of the new pilot dreaming to fly. Unfortunately, Canada is a dinasour when it comes to pilot adva...

Re: Seaplanes Africa

It would be a cool place to fly around for a while. But Africa is not getting cheaper. 206 on floats is a non performer to start.. Working in that area with a higher temperature does not give you much performance. Did a short stint in Fiji on the same machine into little islands and reef protected a...

French only speaking pilot hiring

Two official languages in Canada. English and French. All Cereal boxes in Canada must have english and french on the covers. But when it comes to hiring for pilots - One can dictate that french only need apply. As we all know English is the official international language used in flight operations. ...

Re: Overseas contractors beware - Tax issues

Actually, the OETC had some restrictions on who you worked for and the type of work, so it has, in many cases , never applied to overseas contractors...The payment to one govt or another though has, and occassionally to both... As it is phased out, it will mean that higher day rates will have to be...
