Re: Regional Career

I think Rowdy is pretty spot on in their analysis. For a younger person starting out, getting to AC or WJ mainline as quick as possible makes the most sense for long term career options. I have been so thrilled to see so many good younger pilots that I've flown with getting to AC in their 20s or ear...

I could be wrong but I was under the impression that SSRIs are an automatic disqualifier for a Cat 1. Not sure about Cat 3.
This isn't correct anymore. TC does make being on SSRIs a challenge to hold a Cat 1, but it is permitted.

Re: Georgian AD

Yup but only Pasco pilots will be upgrading to CRJ. WJ Link only wants the CRJ for potential route structure granted by the FAA in the agreement with Pasco to fly to the US . Jazz took whatever GGN pilots on flow though, the rest will be laid off. Back end will be phased out, their contract is not ...

Re: One List

This is not a highly technical engineering issue!

Who knows? Not me I’m just a dumb pilot... So here's the thing. I think pilots are pretty good at collecting and absorbing information about many different factors, but we're not experts in everything. If we're not sure about something maintenance-wise with the plane, we call maintenance. While som...

Re: One List

To elaborate, the so called "one list" was never really a one list, rather a "one way flow list" that allowed very generous terms for Encore. Again, that is not correct. There were provisions for both mainline pilots to bid to Encore and also in the event of layoffs for protection. You're welcome t...

Re: One List

Kaplan dealt with that in his arbitrated CBA. Those pilots that flowed prior to Jan 1, 2019 retained their seniority rights, all others had that condition of employment terminated. Hi sarg, That is correct and I don't disagree. I was simply outlining that the seniority transfer was a previous condi...

Not to get too technical, so briefly to an informed observer it seems: -"Informal" agreement as one not enshrined in a CBA.

Re: One List

Speaking pragmatically and without emotion, the one list came about, after the inception of Encore, to entice talent that could have been at Westjet into joining Encore and getting off the ground, without the perception of losing time at WestJet. That was an informal agreement. Under the current re...

Re: Traing bond legal question

So here's the standard lawyer response: It depends. Generally speaking, training bonds are enforceable. However, like all contracts, there are issues both with respect to whether both of the parties kept up their end of the contract and whether the party that is suing for breach of contract actually...

Two questions, what’s the difference between a theoretical 1500 hour pilot and the 3000 hour pilots currently sliding into “your” flow through positions? And what are you guys going to do about it except pout if they were?

This is a great example of a troll post that is just a little too well done.

Especially considering your alleged time is vastly less t...

There’s always some truth to these rumours (minus the Dreamliner not fitting into the hanger rumour). So where’s the truth in this one, or what did this get spun from?
