Untrue. You can most definitely log PNF time as Picus.
Read the CASS.
You can only log PICUS as PF.

Re: Logging Pilot In Command Under Supervision Time

Picus isn’t actual PIC time. It’s logged as dual and you still sit right seat. The Captain is still PIC. When you apply for the ATPL you can get credit if don’t have enough actual PIC time. BUT you can only use 50% and up to 100 hours. So - If you need 100 hours of pic for the ATPL you have to actu...

Re: Encore wrinkles a Dash-8

It's possible that this was just the public version of the report. There is only a public report in the end. Draft goes to the stakeholders so they can have their lawyers rip it apart, and then after everyone threatens everyone, they agree on the fluff at the end like we see here. Granted, this is ...

Re: Encore wrinkles a Dash-8

Poor decision making on a couple of points, and poor aircraft operation and technique. A Q400 Captain should know better. As for the report; not impressed (nor surprised) with the TSB. There's a glowing error that I see in it right away (small, but it is there) and it brings the rest of the report's...

Re: New hire bids

They actually encourage new hire classes during their first few weeks to go out and rent aircraft to build up their pic time to meet the requirements for their atpl as Jazz will need captains quickly. No encouragement required. You either have the time for the ATPL or you don't. You won't get the r...

Interesting - my company has clear limits for taxi speed(s) as part of the SOP. It is also part of the FOQA monitoring.

Re: Wil Jazz hire with instructing time only?

The management at airlines don't give a rat's arse about the quality of pilots. They just want the ones that are YES men (and women) and sign cheap contracts. I don't think that's a secret.

Yes. I know of a few that were hired sub 1000 with a Class IV.
You also need 250 multi. Under 1000 with no multi will not be given serious consideration.

Completely agree Gilles. I've become more and more disappointed with the TSB reports published over the last several years. In my mind the last well-written report (of a major accident) was SWR111. Now, the TSB is absolutely focussed on reporting superfluous details that quite frankly make me sleepy...
