Re: Good FTU for instructing-Montreal/GTA

If you don't speak French fluently, finding an instructor position in Montreal could be tough. With that being said, if I were you I would look into Cornwall Aviation. They have a good reputation and although I've never worked there, I've only heard good things from those who have. It seems to be a ...

Re: 2018 Pilot Hiring

For what it’s worth, I had ~6 weeks between reference check and call for a ground school date. It’s a long process but don’t give up hope!

Re: Direct Entry Captain Course

Well you sound like someone who got pfo'off... in the last year I know personally at least 10 pilots from Sky that went on to AC, don't know what you talking about here bud... From my understanding you stayed there 2 years as a captain, why did you accept theses conditions then? funny pilots that s...

Re: Direct Entry Captain Course

You can easily make 100K a year with all the draft available and some good friends in Crew Sched. What sucks is the way management will control things. Flight Ops is full of yes men to management who don't really have much of any backbones (with the one exception). What used to be a public little b...

Re: What to expect as a new hire

Cavalier44, what kind of experience do you have? Interview july 2018 and I'm still waiting. Thanks ~5500 TT ~1000 Jet PIC (E175) ~4000 Multi-Engine SIC (DHC6/DH8/E175) Not trying to be presumptuous, but if you interviewed in July 2018 and you’re still waiting for a response, perhaps it might be a g...

Is Sunwing running any ground schools this summer or do they start in the fall?
Last I heard from the rumour mill was one groundschool in mid-August and another in September. Take that with a grain of salt as it could change.

Re: Commuting

Why put yourself through the trouble? I’ve known many commuters as this company over the years - few of them stuck with it for very long. There simply is no commuting policy in effect at Sky Regional. Being on reserve and having to commute in and stay at a crash pad for multiple nights a month is no...

Reapplied around mid-March when the online hiring portal re-opened. Sitting at ~5500 TT, ~1000 Jet PIC. The majority of the rest is 705 SIC, various types (Jet/Turbo...

Re: 2018 Pilot Hiring

Got a phone call today for an early May interview date. No internal reference, so there does appear to be hope for those without one!

If any current Sunwing pilots have any tips for the interview process that they’d be inclined to share via PM, it would be much appreciated.

Do you even have an MEC yet? And I’m pretty sure You don’t even have a collective agreement yet. Your work and schedule rules will be written into the collective agreement. Once ratified then you can enforce the collective agreement with crew planning/crew scheduling. Until then aren’t you still op...

I believe the Best Western Premiere on Carlingview still has an airline rate of around ~$90/night although it’s been the better part of a year since I’ve stayed there.
