Re: Encore Requirements

Alright, stop nickel and dimming your hours like some kid who’s counting enough pennies to buy a candy bar... okay that was sarcasm but there is some truth to this. Do yourself and passengers a favour and get some real world PIC before getting a left seat job in a 705..what’s the rush getting to enc...

Re: The Air Canada OTS thread

Is there any way to see the progress of your application? I first applied 2.5 years ago and just a few months ago updated my resume on job 18853 non-express portal. Did they slow down interviews due to the Max being grounded or something?

Re: Westjet or Sunwing

Sunwing. If you go to WJ you might get “Swooped”. Plus you’ll get perpetually bumped down the list by the Encore folks. I don’t know what the time to a left seat at WJ would be but I bet it’s a very long time. You are wrong. On the application is specifically asks would you go to Swoop, mainline or...

Re: Jazz or Sunwing ?

Take home net pay for Jazz FOs especially on reserve is around $2000 a month. There is an oversupply of FOs on reserve so we rarely get called to fly and basically make no perdiems or overtime pay. When you factor in the average cost of rent for a one bedroom condo in YYZ or YVR being $2000 a month...

Re: Jazz or Sunwing ?

I would go to Sunwing. Personal preference. I prefer jet time and a 737 type rating and heavier time vs a turboprop or light RJ. Sunwing pay is better and upgrade pay is way better than Jazz. You have the option of being stationed overseas which is very inresting, unlike Jazz that flies to Fort what...

Re: Flair V3

This new livery reminds me an awful lot of an older non-existing UK LCC from the late 90’s early 2000’s founded by BA called Go-fly. It ended up getting bought out by Easyjet. Needless to say, Flair seems to have the trait of a teenager struggling with their identity going through different phases e...

Re: North America 737/320 Pay Round-up

WestJet/Swoop/Flair/Whatever are able to crew their aircraft at whatever rates they're offering because pilots accept those rates. You guys make it sound like the airlines are unilaterally forcing wages down, and the pilots are just poor hapless victims in all this, but wages are low because pilots...

I’m purely an English speaker, and don’t speak French besides maybe 20 different odd words. I definitely can’t converse in French. Got the call for phone interview from the last recent ad-Any info or help would be appreciated as to when the next groundschool is planned for and for which aircraft type.

Re: Yvr tower airspace

Usually there’s no VFR in terminal airspace above 2500 feet as per NOTAM. If Tower doesn’t allow VFR, then I assume they were too busy with IFR inbound and departing traffic, who knows. Maybe some controllers are still on vacation? Perhaps because it was a super nice sunny day in Vancouver, everyone...
