Re: 2018 Pilot Hiring

Somebody corrects me if I am wrong. But typically, there are more layovers out of the western bases because they have longer flights. As for the eastern bases it is pretty easy to get day turns even with a low seniority according to my experience anyway.

Re: 2018 Pilot Hiring

There's rumors for upgrades in Fall. So if this is true, there should be GS as well.

Re: 2018 Pilot Hiring

I don't know everything for sure, but I haven't heard such a thing. Typically they will plan GS at the end of the Summer to be fully staffed for the season.

Re: 2018 Pilot Hiring

In the Summer you have yul yyz and yvr. Of course there is also the European bases. To commute is possible but it could be painfull when you're junior.

PC12 NG

Hello,

After unsuccessfully using the search function, I am wondering if anyone knows about this company (flight path I suppose) operating a PC12 out of Montreal ?

Thanks,

Re: Swoop pilot hiring.

You can work for a 705 and be at home for supper every night (ok maybe 1 or 2 overnight per month max)

Re: 2018 Pilot Hiring

If you're flying 10 days than that's it for the month unless you accept overtime /gdo flying. 10 days will amount roughly to 80 to 90 hours credit. The rest of your month will be a mix of gdo and days off. As for the bottom guys on reserve, I would say around 10 days on reserve. You might fly 2 to 3...

Re: 2018 Pilot Hiring

It would be pretty difficult to keep all the day of work together specially if you're junior. There are quite a few commuters though, so it works for them. A way to make the commute less painful is to deploy. For instance if you are based in YYZ and you live in YWG, chances are you can be award the ...

Re: 2018 Pilot Hiring

It really depends on what you bid your base and also of your seniority and as well the time of the year.

But usually max would be around 10, more if you accept gdo flying, min around 4 with a lot of reserve of course.

Re: 2018 Pilot Hiring

It is serious. Gravelpapi has published the link for the cba earlier (it is public of course). You also have the winter deployment, less lucrative but still an extra 1500 $ a month of perdiem plus apt and car provided.

What is missing is some of the Summer deployment since we have an lou.

Re: 2018 Pilot Hiring

Something to consider as well as far as money goes is the ability to deploy.
You can make an extra 25k to 40k during the Summer, all perdiem not taxable.

I don't know if it is as good as WJ paycheck but it certainly helps.
