Use of French in Quebec FIR

I am in Europe right now, and visiting with some European ATC type people. The discussion came around to use of English in communications with the center here, and a question, which I am unable to answer, of what percentage of communications with Montreal ACC, terminal and tower are in English. Anyb...

Re: NavCanada hiring practices vs the airlines

Gilles, I think you need to clarify whether you mean the percentage from start of classroom training versus starting on the job training. The classroom portion you pass the tests and evals and you continue training, or you fail these and you do not continue training.

Re: FSS Medical requirements

As far as I know there is no list and individuals must consult their doctor.

We do go to CAME for medicals here in Mysteryville, and I think everywhere else (?), but I have no idea what may make them say "not fit for duty".

Dunno about ATC MANOPS but FSS MANOPS directs us to give RSC/CRFI info to ALL arriving and departing aircraft not just Canadian ones.

Re: Gender

Percentages are higher (though I would have to go through our recently updated seniority list to figure out an exact number) in FSS than ATC for females as far as I know. Prior to perhaps the late 70's it was pretty low, from all I have heard, and usually all the women in the business were the only ...

Sadly, petite and I work many night shifts which WAS the optimum time to chat :(

I very occasionally go in and troll for victims, but it ain't what it used to be :(

Re: YYC Tower

Hiring/training/job postings are within each FIR. If you apply in Edmonton, as stated above you could go to any of those towers or others within the Edmonton FIR, depending on where they need staff.

Re: YVR Assessment Nov 14th

Pretty sure you would get a job offer if there is an opening, but I think once you go to OJT out of the school, you aren't guaranteed return rights with EOCO.

Re: Failed Human Weather Observation System

It should perhaps be called HAWOS-Human augmented weather observation system. The outdoor part of it, similar to AWOS, gathers information such as temperature, dewpoint, pressure, and wind which are displayed on the observer's computer monitor. The other elements of the METAR or SPECI are input by t...

Re: IFR Clearance in VMC

I think the high points are: 1. Sure you can depart from an MF airport without the VFR departure 2. If you elect to do so you MAY be unable to obtain an IFR clearance in the air and need to continue to destination VFR 3. You are on neither an IFR nor VFR flight plan, so no alerting service until and...
