Re: Congrats

As a non expat I think what the others are saying is that we have it good Canada but our salaries could be better to match other countries with our standard of living. There is nothing wrong with that at all. You seem to be saying that others want to come back to Canada and earn more than Canadians...

Re: Congrats

Oh no I'm more than happy to proceed. However I do doubt your commitment to your word. Per your precise instructions, my last year as an expat was a sabbatical as a scuba instructor, which unfortunately did not pay very much - in fact less than my first year back here. This sadly would produce a ne...

You sir, have a deal. I'll get the bank draft organized immediately. What's your name? I'm not giving out that information for free; you get the details when you show me the bank draft and proof of your income for the two years required. Send me a PM and we'll discuss. Or is your mouth literally wr...

I beg to differ. Looking at my profile I have posted .06 posts a day. Looking at yours you have posted .26 posts a day. Over 4 times more than me.

You served in the military and lived in Dubai two years? You really are making this up as you are going along. Yes, I certainly did.

Re: Congrats

A year or so ago, I read an interview with a woman who lives in Vancouver, and was lamenting the high cost of living. She freely admitted that she could have made more money literally anywhere else in Canada , but she didn't think it was fair that she should have to choose her income over her lifest...

I came back because my wife wanted to come back to be with her family. It was either that or get divorced. And no, I don't think the lifestyle here is better at all. 6 months of snow a year?

Re: Congrats

As someone who has been with AC for over 5 years now after coming back from the sandpit - AC maybe the top of the pile here but when it comes to mainline airlines there is nothing to shout about. $2900 starting take home pay should be enough to keep good pilots away.

"Apprentice Pilot"

Wasaya is hiring an "apprentice pilot", but none of the duties include flying airplanes. Apprentice AMEs fix aircraft, apprentice plumbers fix plumbing, etc. An apprentice pilot would have to be learning the duties related to being a pilot in the same way. If they aren't flying, they aren't a pilot;...

Re: Hawaii Twin Skydive Accident, 11 dead.

...generally more discussion has been more about a possible engine failure. From another article: "Witnesses said they saw the plane spin twice up in the air and that it never gained enough altitude for those on board to safely parachute out before nose-diving into the ground." That sounds a lot li...

Re: Damaging an engine by turning the prop backwards

Free turbines spin the prop the wrong way all the time on windy days That’s not a good thing. At least on the Garret that’s a big no no since starter-generator brushes are worn in only one way, spinning them the other way is not good. Garretts ain't free turbines. Free turbines can have the props s...

If you bothered to read my original post I wasn’t expecting a free/warranty fix. I just don’t want to throw out an $1100 purchase because my options to fix it properly are down to zero.

Re: AVRO 100 First Officer or King Air 200 Captain

Strictly speaking from a career perspective, 705 jet FO time isn't worth that much. PIC time is key. You'll get further ahead in the long run with PIC time as a general rule. As mentioned, the Avro 100/BAE-146 is a useless type rating. Many overseas operators still require Jet time on types over 40...

And for the OP. Personally I’d take the King Air captain job. An RJ is a boutique aircraft these days. Really cool, but not a lot of them around and their days are numbered. Finding work is feast or famine so unless it’s on a sched or a long term contract (eg: nothing to do with seasonal work like ...
