Re: 737 to 787 Upgrade Times

The only thing we know for sure about future hiring prospects and career advancement at WJ/Swoop/Encore is that no one on here and probably in the boardroom at WJ has a flookin clue what's going to happen over the next 5 years. Accepting any job in aviation is a risk as it may disappear. The only ce...

Re: The Air Canada OTS thread

The reduction in class sizes is mostly due to the continuing MAX return to service delay. AC was confident it would be back this year but as that now looks nigh on impossible they have slowed the hiring considerably. Maybe Transat is a factor but not yet. As someone said its quite a long time until ...

Re: The Air Canada OTS thread

So...why does Air Canada tell every interview candidate they will have a decision in 4-6 weeks? They never tell anyone within this time frame. Its usually more like 3 months from people I know. I realize a few weeks over a 30 year career isn't a big deal, but why not just be honest instead of raisin...

Re: 737 max

Pheeewy, it seems to me that regardless of piloting brilliance that this accident was going to happen to some crew somewhere eventually. They may or may not have been poorly trained, they may have been at the end of a brutal 5 day pairing, they may have been having an off day. I think both accidents...

Re: 737 max

Anyone have any insight as to why the crew having activated the stabilizer trim cut out switches were then unable to manually trim the aircraft using the trim wheel? Isn't that the whole point of the manual trim wheel?

Re: Gloom & Doom Q2 outlook...are you kidding?

Tbaylx, you have absolutely no idea of the amount of anger and resentment toward the Swoop pilots from the VAST majority of WJ pilots. The trainers, ACPs, captains and first officers you fly with will mostly be WJ pilots and at some point the CP will be an unsympathetic WJ pilot too. These people wi...

Why should a ULCC pilot flying a 737 be paid less than a Mainline 737 pilot? They shouldnt, same job, same responsibilty.

Re: Why would anyone want to go to Swoop?

The WJ pilots ARE standing firm. It would be nice if they had the support of their peers. ACPA and ALPA have publicly supported WJ pilots stance. If the support of all pilots in Canada was forthcoming it would benefit the WJ pilots position. If the WJ pilots are successful it will benefit everyone i...

Re: Why would anyone want to go to Swoop?

Dont forget to deduct $100-$300 per cheque for LTD/STD for an FO, and about double for a captain. You will clear more driving a school bus than as a Swoop Captain. If you go to Swoop, what is to stop WJ starting a new airline 2 years later with even less pay and worse conditions than Swoop? I guaran...

After reading all this it just confirms what a sad state our industry is in. Capitalism at its finest, reducing costs and the value of people to the lowest workable minimum. Wish I hadn't asked the question.

Re: GGN CRJ Captain

To be honest, I don't know of any Dash, ATR or corporate guys that wouldn't be taking a pay cut to go left seat at GGN. Around $73k to captain a commuter jet by my reckoning. A first year WestJet/Air Canada FO will damn near make that. Think I'll pass.
