Re: MOA2

Jesus Christ, you guys are complete narcissists if you think the primary factor in everyone's decision-making is how it affects you. :roll: Under the current circumstances, I don't think anyone is looking for ways to screw anyone else, they're just trying to keep their heads above water.

Re: 3 dead, 2 uninjured in NWT

Wat would it cost for a company to engineer a fix ( Make the forward door fixed and increase the aft door and put a handle on it ) $10-$15000 ? Is TC too anal to fast track approval of a companies aft door mod kit ? Will Cessna be trying to prevent this kind of mod? Maybe get 10 customers deposits ...

Re: 2020 Hiring

Hard to guess accurately with the new PTA just coming into effect and the fact nothing is constant in aviation. If I had to bet on an approximate time frame I’d guess 10-11 years given current rates. 1200 numbers from the bottom of the list to the most junior mainline captain. At 50-70 upgrades a y...

Re: Near collision at Brampton

Let me get this straight, your're advocating this should be the practice at Brampton? That's the thread here -- about Brampton, one of the busiest uncontrolled airports in the country. No, he's not advocating that. The only reason we're talking about NORDO is because some cockamamy comment about ho...

Re: One List

Personally I don’t think a DFR or lawsuit will gain much traction. WJ owns Encore 100%. There is history of a one list between both groups despite the vote. It’s my understanding a DFR complaint was brought forward from the JAZZ pilots against their JAZZ MEC for allowing Georgian pilots to flow ove...

Re: Netjets getting even better.

What’s the closest thing in YYZ? Is Airsprint ever thinking of a Toronto base? Or flying pilots to where they need to be like flexjet?

Re: The End of the WPDL Confirmed

Having said that, what comes of the WPDL is up to the WJ pilots. Yes and it is fully intact WJ/Encore/Swoop. In that order actually lol. Currently sits at about 2030 names with current Swoop pilots going all the way to the bottom. Not true. 30 Encore pilots got cut off at the knees on this one. The...

Re: WestJet pilots to fly Swoop aircraft

Re: Swoop offering yearly bonuses?

I know quite a number of good people who are now working at swoop and count a number of them as friends. Friends with families to support and who applied for a job at an airline that was advertised. If I hear of any blacklisting or agressive tactics against these pilots, you can bet the last time a...

Re: Swoop Blacklist

What really blows me away JS, is your justification that pilots deserve to be treated in such a disrespectful way. Why can’t the relationship be just as strong with ALPA as it was with the pa? Why wasn’t the pilot group given a proper opportunity to negotiate the WJDL flying swoop? What management i...

Not an ALPA member, like the ~20% of WJA pilots, therefore have no access to any information. Yes, I'm fully aware that I have no say, but that's my choice.

I see your “coming clean” thread was removed, Rotten. Very unfortunate, easily your best work.

Re: Swoop pilot hiring.

If people don't want to work at Swoop, don't go to work at Swoop. This is basic economics and the right of citizens of a free society. WJ came along 21 years ago and brought sustainable competition to the airline market in Canada which provided consumers with choice, and in many, many cases brought...

Re: WestJet introduces WestJet Link

Union goonery. FFS, flying doesn't "belong" to anyone, especially not pilots. Pilots do the flying that their employer provides for them. If they don't like that, they are free to move on to whatever company provides flying that suits them . Yeah, not quite that simple. All those WJ 737 captains th...

129 total turning 65.

2026-2030
164

2030-2035
243

So a grand total of 536 between now and 2035?

There’s probably as many applications in at AC.
