AC Application confirmation email, need advice

Just completed my AC online application and submitted it. The site says I should receive a confirmation email which I have never received. I have tried it a couple of times, including both on an iPad and laptop. I don’t think my application is being updated and processed correctly and not sure what ...

Re: ALPA Jumpseat Question

A RAIC does not give you ability to “jumpseat” but being a commercial pilot does is what I was getting at with my original question. I always thought that what has been stated a couple times regarding having to be with a carrier with a reciprocal was the case. Until a colleague said he had done this...

Re: ALPA Jumpseat Question

I should have been more specific, I know “jumpseating” is sitting in the back. I have “jumpseated” with a previous airline gig. Now I’m in a corporate situation and thought I couldn’t anymore until a colleague told me his anecdote. So I have wondered if I could using the system I proposed in my ques...

Re: ALPA Jumpseat Question

Have a different question related but not the same. Is a non-airline Pilot, say a corporate pilot with a RAIC, able to Jumpseat? For example, he arrives at the terminal in uniform and RAIC, gets a standby boarding pass from the check in agent and proceeds to the gate to request from the captain to J...

Re: Chartright Promoting From Within

When I did that exact interview for flight follower with Mr. Armstrong in around 2009, the direct answer from his mouth was no we don’t. Go and get some operational experience first and we’ll meet with you again for a pilot position. Maybe things have changed quite a bit in 10 years... :shock:

The difference between the US market and Canada is insane! Regionals giving $30k signing bonuses, and $80k salary for flying a metroliner! People here seem to have pride in being abused and pretty much demand everyone spend 2 years on the ramp insisting it's a necessary step (which only exists here...

If captaincooll was paying for the tickets with a stolen credit card then doesn’t that mean AC isn’t out any money at all? And in fact simply sold the seats at full price?? Perhaps I am missing something?..
