Re: Air Georgian Cadet Program

Hi, We have a PICUS program in place at Air Georgian and we will make every effort to help our pilots build the required time. As for the last point, we do not want to 'keep Cadets from going to AC'. This would upset AC and would defeat the purpose of the program which is to encourage people to join...

Re: Current info on REGIONAL 1?

AGL has made no adjustment to R1 wages. There was a change to benefits due to the merger which resulted in a net gain for 85% of R1 employees, each employee is unique based on their prior and new opt-in/opt-out choices.

Re: Air Georgian Hiring Pool

The system Chief Pilot manages the type and/or base CP's. Troy is now flying one of the Corp Jets so the B1900 is beeing directly managed by an Assistant but we no longer have a Charter Chief Pilot. Minor change due to Troy being more involved in the corp jet side.

The cadet program could work out really well for some people.

You should be upgraded in 36 - 40 months so you will have 700 plus hours PIC at transition time. After flying for AGL for 4 years you are offered a position on the NEXT ground school AC runs so if they are not hiring you just wait as you are next in line. There is no contract with AGL or AC.
