Re: Manitoba Medevac

Any more recent comments from those flying med in Manitoba? Judging from the number of ads looking for pilots it seems like a high turnover gig - surprising to me seeing as someone with experience could come in at $100K and 2 weeks in 2 out with flights paid for. TIA

Renewing a Long Expired Type Rating

A type rating expired over 6 years ago and needs to be renewed.
Is it a full initial course or is it a renewal?

Re: Conair

I wonder if they are trying to get a pool of good candidates together now for interviews later on closer to the spring... Good luck with that in this job market. Might as well wait till the spring, because they'll have to restart anyways if that's the plan :P I was thinking the same - why "hire" wh...

Re: Conair

Yes I agree completely North Shore.
A few years back they were adamant that people have a bunch of tail wheel and float time but I'm not sure if that is still the case.

Third job ad I've seen from them this fall plus one for a Chief Pilot.
Are they really having a hard time finding people?
Anyone applied and heard back?

Re: Carson Air 2019

I believe the Citations are based in YVR. I was offered dec there some years back - it was 70k at the time. Not sure if that has changed. Your info on YLW is correct but it is just 350s. The really ridiculous thing about that place is the bond - it is structured so that you are on the hook for initi...

Agreed. The 1900 must be very long in the tooth also. They were pushing 25,000 hours when I was there a decade ago.

I used to fly that run when it was Georgian doing it. Yes, it's a split duty day. When I was there one crew would do Monday Wednesday Friday and the other crew would do Tuesday Thursday.
