Re: Career First Officer at AC by design?

I don't take that comment re"psych test" as seriously "vilifying" anyone. I think that's is a tit for tat type poke as two forum members get going at one another.

Re: The Air Canada OTS thread

How many days would one be on RES and are you able to bid days off for the days off you have? Sorry may be the wrong thread... You get 12.25 days off per month on reserve. You bid them based on seniority, but it has to fit a pattern, and often that results in seniority not being respected in the bid.

Re: Hiring

Do they actually move your days off around within the month? (Mind you AC does this with grey days as well)
AC can't move your days off... pay protection for cancelled or lost flying has to fall with in a window based on the original flying and when it's lost.

Re: Thoughts on ACPA Joining ALPA...

Not my report. It was done by two independent outside experts. If you don't want to believe it fine, but be prepared for repeated results. The 10 year deal was also approved by a strong majority of pilots. I was not a fan either but it went through. In 2009, AC was broke and had only occasionally p...

Re: Thoughts on ACPA Joining ALPA...

AC pilots used to hold those keys as Jazz was the only approved teir 2 carrier. The TA1 crew and a dubious survey put an end to that and we gave it away.

To get it back would cost AC pilots and I imagine the company would say that it's a "no go item" anyway...

I'd have to pull up the exact footprints if you wanted to know by how much, but it would be similar.

Re: A320s

320's will be with us for a while yet... well past 2024 I'd suspect.

As mentioned there are newer ones still with us at Mainline, plus rouge got 5 new 321s just a few years ago, and the trend is upgauging regional routes to the LCC where they have unrestrained fleet growth opportunity.

It was recently mentioned to me that NorCal ATC Ops requires lighting for both 28 runways to be active to run the Bridge Visual Approach program at night.

If so, I don't know why that didn't come up. Maybe it's not true, I don't know where one would find that info relevant ATC procedures.
