Re: Let The Massive Hiring Begin!!!! FINALLY

I believe SkyReg starts at 49000$ last I checked for FO. It's a Farcry from what it was back in 2012 when they started. I believe it was in the low 30s. It was changed a couple of years ago. Now this is base pay. Every time you fly you get a certain amount per hour. And per diems. So in the end it'...

Re: Jazz

I know guys who have made it it with less that 1500. It's crazy to think that'd they'd look as low as 1000 hours. Try 250 hrs with the college kids. Lots of them have been hired. I heard one saying he's going left seat in 2 years when he gets 1500TT :lol: Thats really funny actually lol. But seriou...

Re: Jazz

It cracks me up sometimes when I read posts on this forum from people who don't understand the hiring practices at regional airlines. Regionals like Jazz hire 1500 hrs because they prefer to. 5000 hr pilots sometimes come with baggage that 1500 hr pilots don't. Jazz wants pilots who; - Will work for...

Bag runs are split duty days. Most average 8-12 hours of actual duty time, with several hours off in the middle of the day for rest.

Re: Orca ad

So its still another 703 company that most people leave after they get 2000 hrs? That's a shame, flying a Beach 99 from Vancouver into places like Tofino could be a sweet gig under the right conditions.

Re: Air Georgian

I fairly certain the airlines aren't looking on "hire me". That is incredibly naive of you. If you have been experiencing difficulty finding a job up to this point, I can guarantee you just blacklisted yourself everywhere else. Why? 1. You are entitled. I'm sure I'm well qualified for that position...

As a low time private here -- hence my handle -- circling approaches scare me. At night? Ugggggggg. Just did my first one actually -- during the day. Prepped for minimums -- per the metar - but comfortably above. Anticlimactic, An LNAV, and I had a first class alternate 20 min away, tons of fuel. N...

Re: Perimeter Sanny accident report

I also find it shocking that the lack of a straight in approach to both runways was not even included as a risk factor in this report. They must secretly admit that this is a risk factor if an rnav approach appeared there soon after the accident. I remember about a month after the keystone accident...

Re: Perimeter Sanny accident report

As for the granny gas.... You'll notice the AC took off at 15993 lbs (max 16000) on PAPER + 200 lbs granny gas. And the only comment the NTSB had about it was adding extra fuel "may invalidate the C of A". The NTSB did NOT suggest to TC that the "well known practice within the company" of adding gra...

Re: Pilot Shortage: Where’d All the Pilots Go?

I've met people who've moved into aviation after careers in other professions and be happy as clams. And I've met people who've left aviation for a real job and be as happy as a clam!

I havn't seen any job overseas from IASCO Global that doesn't require time on type, a type rating or time on a heavy jet. Yet i've seen AC, WJ and Sunwing take 703 ...
