Re: What do you do when you think someone should never fly again?

I turn to them after the flight and say, "CdnPilot77, how do you feel about boats?"

Re: Direct Entry Captain Course

Not "too" many 3-4 year FO's at Sky. They're usually unique situations for any number of reasons. The main issue there is that while capt attrition has always been at a steady rate, the FO's previously hired at 2500 hours were upgradeable at the 2 years by the matrix (Also coincidentally eligible fo...

Re: Are Amber Alerts affecting your flight safety?

I've also put the notifications for them to silent on my S10. Easy peasy. When I get up in the morning the first thing I see is the type of car and where they might be going. I'll keep an eye out. But there is literally zero point to me getting the info in the middle of the night because, since I'm ...

Re: Thunder Air

I'd run as far as possible from this place. You'll fly safe, updated equipment. If you respect the operation and your fellow humans you'll find out what it's like to be respected and appreciated as a pilot. You'll have a decent schedule and really good pay, as well as benefits and a little pension. ...

You probably should. Regardless of meeting the bare minimum requirements, anyone that actually has "haters" should probably focus their lens on themselves.

Re: DOH merge.

Air Canada has stated it intends to run Transat as it's own brand. I predict there will NOT be a merger of the pilot groups. There's no way AC would just voluntarily increase the salaries of TS pilots, since at the end of the day, their wages and benefits are lower by a little bit. They would be ove...

Hardly over my head. But since you brought that up, It's only a point if it makes sense. Accordingly, what you stated was therefore more of a weak analogy at best and barely representative of the viewpoint you clarified after. Not responding to the topic, just your accusation.

Re: Air Canada Outbid

I strongly doubt more than a tiny handful of people bought at $37 and it would have been a plain old bad buy. That was their all time high, was overvalued, and it held only for a few days before starting a long correction. TRZ has spent almost 80% of it's life below $15. Nobody in the market is enti...

You two guys that saying the potentially incoming TS pilots aren't worth crap have a very creative understanding of basic math. 4100 pilots at AC, 600 at TS, with DOH spread all through the roster. Two point you guys need to see: 1) With a DOH blend, it's a good assumption there would be just as man...

Well, you're certainly looking ahead. I have 3 things to say: -Nothing is going to go to plan any further than 6 months out.

I'd be curious to know if Air Canada has hired more people in the last 2-3 years than the entire work force at Transat. If they have it would seem slotting Transat people above them will piss off more employees than it will placate. I've said this before in this thread- It's not like Everyone at TS...

Re: Time for Transat pilot future poll

The top scale Transat A330 captain has a lower pay rate than a A320 captain at AC. Essentially Transat Seniority #1 currently makes less on paper than a seniority number 3200ish that holds a A320 captain position at AC. Let that sink in. The Transat pilots have landed a windfall of a lifetime. Even...

Re: DOH merge.

How is this difficult to understand? The money is in bigger airplanes. Someone who gets 500 people on top of him in the seniority list might never see WB captain spot due to the way demographics works against him. Or he will see it for fewer years. AT brings in wide body airplanes as well. A mix of...

Re: DOH merge.

For people at AC worried that this will cause a large drop in seniority, it would hardly be noticable. 600 pilots spread from yesterday to 30 years, and many being hired every month. There will be a good chunk below a new AC hire today as well as hiring continues at a large rate at TS. Also, they're...
