Re: Will I get my RAIC?

Cncpc .. educate yourself on the process, be informed so you don’t end up in a potential career ending situation. If you know what your up against you’ll make a better informed decision.

Like Bede said .. it’s not fair, and it’s not! .. but if we know, we can avoid SOME of the pitfalls ..

DanWEC .. People need to get this through there heads .. Record or no record .. it doesn't matter! You don't have to be arrested! They can pull your RAIC or whatever reason they see fit.

Re: Will I get my RAIC?

I hate to say .. but I think you will definitely have an issue. The passage of time might play into your favour, but TC believes that anyone caught with illegal drugs (marijuana was still illegal) is automatically involved with organized crime. How else do drugs get trafficked? That’s going to be th...

Re: RAIC Pass

Palebird, I would encourage you to do your own homework .. I wish it was BS. Indice reports, which are also called LERC’s are a permanent record of police contact and are used for various background checks including vulnerable sector checks, or any other agency you give permission to .. ie Transport...

Re: RAIC Pass

Sorry to burst your bubble fellas .. anytime you have contact with a police officer an indice is generated and they are PERMENENT. If you review the TSC policy, you will sign off for Transport to have access to all indice reports. It doesn’t matter if you are arrested, charged or convicted of a crim...

Re: Anyone had a RAIC pass lately? Wait time?

The RCMP use to have the responsibility of granting or denying security clearances, Transport believes they are better suited at determining who is a threat or not.

Re: Horizon Airlines in SEA/PDX/MFR hiring Canadians

I sent an email to the listed employment address, the reply was brief and said all applicants require the right to work in the U.S and that the company is not sponsoring visa's nor do they plan to in the future.

Re: Wasaya caravan missing

When you say to plan their attack are you referring to an ops call? Most major airlines have these teleconference calls about the delays of the day and certain maintenance issues etc that arose. These calls normally incorporate the department heads (plus various others) and discuss ways of improving...

Flying VFR in 300&1 is stupid beyond belief.

Aviation is risky enough without this stupidity being allowed.
No doubt but transport provided the ops spec .. so back to the individual pilot exercising his or her authority. Take-offs are optional ...

Re: Wasaya caravan missing

I don't believe this tragedy had anything to do with the 300:1 Spec Op, (I don't believe the report highlights that issue either) if anything it shows that pilots need to look out for themselves. I agree that multi-layered approaches to this issue would greatly assist newer and less experienced pilo...

Re: RAIC

Not sure why this is under the employment forum?

Look for old utility bills or past income tax returns, your only going back 5 years.

Another option is to get a driver's abstract from the province you lived. If you followed the rules your adress should have been updated to where you lived.

Cheers.

Re: RAIC - brush with the law

What they should have answered was the reason for the cancellation or refusal. I'm certain the reason they didn't answer that question is because people would go "Huh?". The general public assumes those cancellations/refusals are related to terrorism/organized crime .. They're not, that's the problem.

Everyone in this industry should be very concerned. You will lose your RAIC for nothing more then being friends with someone who has a criminal record. That's it ....
