Re: Interview/Medical/etc

Never Quit your job to go through the "process" for another job, considering nothing is guaranteed

The new employer should work around your schedule to find appropriate dates that work for both parties.

The only pita is with most plans either you pay upfront for roaming in the USA as in the North American Plans or pay by the day with the roam like home. You have to figure out how much you are going to be down in the states to see which one i...

ACA YMM

For those on the fence deciding to apply. Do it you won't regret it. Spent 10yrs working for the Umbles probably the best Alberta 703 operator hands down. You won't find much on here cause no one has any complaints about the job. Good luck to all who apply.

Re: Headset recommendations

Lightspeed Zulu 2, if space is not an issue in your flight bag
U fly Mike with Bose QC headset if you need something more compact.

Both are good, the Lightspeed is a tad quieter.

Re: U.S. Work

I was under the impression, that if you are married to a nurse or doctor, they can get a work permit/visa easy. Head hunting agencies do all the paperwork for them. Once they live and work in the USA for 6 months you can then apply and get a work permit quite easy.

Re: Perimeter aviation vs transwest air? Help

In the past that session is a competitive ground school for ramp staff. Where you take your TDG ground handling etc. At the end they will offer jobs to those they like/prefer. My info is 10 yrs old though. So they may have changed the process.
