Re: How much does it cost to run AvCanada?

Have the number of "users online" been decreasing over the past several years, even seems many of the private forums are abandoned... also the homepage seems very dated and really what has been updated over the years other than the forum layout?

Re: Jazz to launch pay for type rating program

Realistically, as long as AC flat pay is such a disgrace, wages aren’t going anywhere. And the flat pay won’t change until the resume pile thins out drastically. That will never happen as long as a kid with 250hrs can sit right seat in an airliner. The 1500hr rule sure changed the financial fortune...

Re: Bombardier to relocate its Global aircraft final assembly site

Now the question is, with the Dash 8 400 program sold to DeHavilland Canada (Longview Aviation Capital), where will production of the Q400 be moved to, once the lease at Downsview is done in a few years ??

Re: Jazz Approach

So does Jazz management figure that the real shortage of pilots will begin in about 18 months (since program states 18 months to completion) if they are setting a cadet program now?

Re: Entire application process timeline?

Re: New hire bids

With YVR seeming to be the base for new hires lately and with the high cost of living there what options are there for commuting/crashpads ? And how fast can one bid out the base ?

Re: Jazz YHZ Base Rumours

Well, if we want to talk about rumours and add some speculation for entertainment, here's another one that may be related. Apparently, at the behest of AC, Jazz is moving 6 DH1 that were planned for retirement at year-end out west to cover off the the DH3 flying so that those aircraft can consolida...

Re: 50 Seat Q400

Updating would probably including a lot of weight savings (ie. more composites inside and out, ditching the APU=weight, glass cockpit). Keep the galley aft and move the shitter to the back as well, Dash's have always been nose heavy... Lots can be done upgrade a proven frame...as mentioned before, t...

Re: 50 Seat Q400

PW 150s might be a bit much on the 300s frame...could see them going with a version of the PW 127s with 6 bladed props like the newer ATRs use and a prop brake for a hotel mode thus negating the need for an APU....definitely lots of modernization and upgrade potential if they ever do go ahead with a...

There are many variables, but does anyone have a somewhat accurate "guesstimate" for how many AC will take from Jazz going into 2020 and beyond ??

I get the delayed Jazz bid will detail more but I am curious to what everyone thinks will happen...

Would DeHavilland Canada restart Dash 8 300 production?

Interesting comments towards the end of the article from De Havilland Canada Chief Operating Officer Todd Young about interest in a 50 seater again.

Any Jazz types out there got an update/info on the August bid ?? Hasn't come out yet, usually comes out Aug 15th (or close to it) I expect to see it Aug 15 or 16th.
