Re: YVR Training Offers

Congrats!

I'm a bit confused when you say 'standby' offer... I thought if you were in the pool and got selected for a training position, then it was a 'training offer'? I didn't know they had 'standby' offers?

Was this VFR/IFR or FSS?

In any case, good luck!

Re: Streamed FIC

Thanks for the reply Lisa, If you've been streamed FIC, does that not mean you'd based in Kamloops? I thought FIC = 'Flight Service Specialist - Kamloops' and AAS was 'Flight Service Specialist AAS'? So you'll be staying in Kamloops for OJI and from then on or no? I've been streamed VFR, but was tol...

Re: Streamed FIC

Hey Lisa,
when do you find out whether you're AAS or FIC? Do they tell you in the initial offer or do you get told later in training?
If you're Airport Advisory, do they tell you where you'll be placed or is that a 'wait and see' thing?
Good luck in training!

Re: YVR phone interview

Hey WoS, I've attached a screenshot of my Nav Canada page, other than a green light and saying what stream I've been placed in, I've heard nothing. No mention of waitlist or my position in the pool. I guess I just wait to hear further updates! Hey Lisa, Has my in-person interview Feb 10th, got green...

Was REALLY hoping to hear something about a course this Fall, but looks like it's not to be if the courses might be already full? guess I didn't score high enou...

Re: Training Course Offers

Thanks for the reply!

That's good to know, I understand there's no guarantees, but what if you turn down the FSS offer, because you're holding out for a VFR offer?

Does the fact that you turned down FSS mean they can't/won't offer you VFR?

Training Course Offers

Afternoon all, If you get the green light and are streamed VFR, but then offered a FSS training course, are you able to decline the FSS course with hopes of receiving a VFR training course later? Or if you say, "No thanks" to the FSS course, is that it? Game over? I was wondering if they're likely t...

Re: YVR FIR

It didn't go too well unfortunately.... I wasn't feeling my best (head cold), but that's not an excuse. I'm not the best at interviews to start with, and I think nerves got the better of me. Now I'm just waiting for the final confirmation that I messed it-up (the dreaded red light). Have to wait and...

Howdy folks,

wondered if any of you have this pilot watch? What do you like/dislike about it? I'm looking for a decent flying watch that doesn't hint that I use too much hair product.

Thanks all!
