Re: Calin is retiring February 2021

His DB was negotiated in 2018 at 750k/year.... good think he’s put away a few millions during his times at AC, life is so expensive these days :roll: I wish him a happy and long retirement. He was an asset to the AC Shareholder. Pilot profession not so much. While I'm sure he "appreciated us&q...

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

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.....
