Re: Jetport

Re: Chartright

Just go fly at Piedmont airlines. And in 4-6 years you’ll be at American Airlines. No degree required. The sooner you get in the better.

Re: Recession.

Recessions happen when corporate profits tank. Nope. Recessions happen for a multitude of reasons, minor and major. We're seeing it primarily in China due to the trade war, and possibly Europe with new auto tariffs in 3 months time. Depressions happen when the banks stop lending because there are m...

Disregard that last comment. Now apparently operators must apply on their own. If not based in yyz you can only apply 72hrs in advance. Kitchener is gonna be busy again!
Jetport is gonna start charging 500 dollar overnight ramp fees again.

Bah! Just use the handheld and turn up the cockpit speaker.

In all seriousness though, gold encrusted A20s. You can thank me later when they go up in value as investors pull out of the equity market and into resources.

Re: Corporate_Global Express_First Officer

I'm not going to speak in assumptions, I know for a fact there are co-pilots in light jets making more than this.

I think they realize they won't get the experience, even on an upper echelon jet like this, so why pay market rate.

The one big caveat to working in the U.S though is health insurance - and while the net take home is significantly higher, you have a sizeable portion removed for your insurance.

To put that in perspective, that there is listed as a small cabin payscale. Don't know exactly how they qualify cabins (we generally talk weight and class).
