Re: Air Canada Pay

An observation from this old codger. Why do chaps make comments on Air Canada’s salary structure when they (a) do not work at that airline (b) explicitly imply they have no desire to do so. Insecurity, I assume. Using pay and schedule as an example, a corporate pilot should STFU about how good they...

Re: Air Canada Pay

Excuses for the arbitrator? The last arbitrator had all the excuse he needed since the Protecting Air Services Act said they had to select the Final Offer that was best for Air Canada corporate. That literally was the law. Their was no middle ground, no interest based arbitration, it was all or not...

Re: Air Canada Pay

I never said we were "the best" I simply said where else in Canada can you fly an airplane for as much as you can at AC. 4 year flat pay is in fact the only thing about Air Canada's pay structure that is consistent with "industry standard" in Canada. Trust me, the first thing an Arbitrator will loo...

Re: Air Canada Pay

Wages need to increase everywhere else (WJ, SW, Swoop, Flair) for these numbers to ever have a chance at reaching industry standard. *Deep Facepalm* Is this the common belief at Air Canada?

Re: Air Canada Pay

Pretty difficult to fix it all in one go... A contract takes decades to build and develop, the 10 years leading up to 2012 saw ours set back significantly. But in the last 5 years... We got years of service on upgrades back on LOU74. We got a real pension back for our new hires. We got a 900 hour n...

Re: Air Canada Pay

The average pilot salary was 176k last year at AC how did you stack against that? Did very well, thank you for asking. Not quite the 0.01% @ 302K, but I don't have to sell my soul working draft to get to those numbers (nor likely pay alimony and child support). Most people in my neighborhood think ...

Re: Air Canada Pay

AC pilots will end up in aribitration sooner than later. How can they demand "industry standard" (even close to US carriers) when the rest of Canada is willing to work for way less garbage wages for airline work. It is absolutely up to the other carriers to step up their game. Ac is getting dragged...

Re: Air Canada Pay

It's a race to the bottom and pilots are not to blame. If we want to work, we have to take the jobs available. Previously, there was an abundance of qualifued pilots in Canada. Today it is a different world and we should be demanding more. Pretty sad when a starting pilot at Jazz has to work 5 year...

I think we're all rather confused, fortunately not as confused as Air Canada managment regarding this change though. *shaking head* Air Canada is a supporter of the Liberal Party...

Re: Chartright Promoting From Within

When I did that exact interview for flight follower with Mr. Armstrong in around 2009, the direct answer from his mouth was no we don’t. Go and get some operational experience first and we’ll meet with you again for a pilot position. Maybe things have changed quite a bit in 10 years... :shock: I al...

Re: Chartright Promoting From Within

Try applying directly to Mr. Armstrong in HR, skip the office and try and go straight to the right seat of the Citation Ultra. I don't know if they are quite hiring yet at 250 hours, but if you show interest and maturity, I am sure you and management at Chartright can have a serious talk about filli...

Hawker 4000

I can't find a type designator for the 4000 on TCs website.

It looks like the FAA, EASA, Brazil and CAA authorized it, but did Canada ever get around to certifying it here?

Re: Joining the RCAF at 37 years old

How recent was that, because that is not the tale I've heard, as of late? My understanding is that they are willing to pay above rank rates for experienced pilots who can zip through IPT and free up the instructors or become instructor pilots themselves. Just don't have any grand illusions of becom...

Re: $90k or higher.

North Wright out of Norman Wells had a Captain's rotation and I'm pretty sure they were close or exceeding 90k.

Granted flying up there in the winter requires a very particular individual.
