Re: SUNWING

I quit Sunwing last winter....its a decent place to work with some ok people. If your a single guy, your gonna have a lot of fun going back and forth to Europe in the summers, and flying south in the Winter! If you want to have a family, its a tough gig for ya being away often, sometimes for months....

Re: Kasper Kodiak

Kodiak is a piece of shit on floats and worse on amphibs. Too expensive for what you get out of it. Well, unless you have a shit load of cash and want to fly it around for fun...maybe sure go ahead. But don’t even consider it for commercial use unless superman himself is driving it. Can’t offer any ...

Re: Supply and Demand of Commercial Pilots in Canada

Try looking into the amount of specialized pilots that are out there now compared to even 10 years ago. i.e. Float pilots with 1000 PIC on floats, Ag pilots, even helicopter pilots. ie: A 737 , 747 , A320 , GV, Global X.....etc etc etc... You can cross-train and toss a jet driver fella into any of t...

Re: C206 VS Beaver

From a professional float drivers point of view Dehavillands always win! Go with the Beaver or if you can afford it, go to the single otter....a C206 with that thin wing and underpowered engine makes it no fun for passengers or pilots. Cessna is just not made for the water. always love this video......

Re: Am I On Crack Again

Aslong as pilots keep accepting low wages operators will keep paying them....if you don't like the terms and conditions, turn down the job and tell them why. If enough guys do it they will be forced to change otherwise have an empty seat, thus, no flying....but you get a guy with stars in his eyes a...

Re: Float gig this year

Be prepared to work! Canadian float flying isn't for the fair hearted. Most guys abandon the idea after a couple of winters on employment insurance. But it is the greatest flying your ever going to experience. Have you converted all the licenses yet???
