Will you feel better about yourself if AC pilots get layoffs too?
No but the math are clear, you don't park up to 175 Airplanes without offloading pilots, I just hope not to be in the numbers... Mainline has 189 and rouge 66.... only 80 frame left flying... How many pilots will be needed ?

Re: Layoffs

Brace for bad news in the next weeks, AC won't carry 4500 pilots for long.... On pure speculations ....despite incentives to retire and reduce hours, I can't see them not laying off probably 1500 pilots.... Rouge gone, 767 mainline gone, E190 gone, even probably 777 parked, Running 787 and Airbuses ...

Re: Hiring on track?

We can expect EMBs and Mainline 767 to be parked very soon, some of the older 320’s, more wide body’s on domestic and US route some previously differed maintenance and interior updates moved up, reductions in all cases, probably delays in hiring as current retraining will clog sims availability....

Re: The Air Canada OTS thread

Delays with Ground school has to do with sims availability and coming restrictions on travelling, pilots are scattered around the globe for training and they want to cut that, but not enough sims in Canada

Re: The Air Canada OTS thread

AT will need more crew once AC takes over, AC doesn't leave airplane sitting on the ground and utilisation on AT fleet will go up for sure, AC pilots fly 600-700h a year, sometimes even more..... Given the shortage of aircraft cause by the 737 grounding I can see a very busy summer for all AC and AT...

Once you get yourself into the situation of having that much nose down trim, at such a low altitude, you are done. The manual trim wheel won’t move with the opposing forces applied. The only way to trim is to release all force and let the nose fall. If you don’t have a few thousand feet, it’s all o...

There are currently over 5000 outstanding orders on the books for the 737-MAX of all types with nothing to replace them with. Airbus is failing to meet order dates in the 320 NEO so to go to the back of the line is not an option to expand A new narrow body would take a decade or so to get certified...

I'm told other courses are full, 8 new hires on the 737 because of it, and flight ops expecting to have all 30 planes up flying as soon as they will be able to (end of the year)
