Re: C Series lands at EGLC. Toronto Island loses out. Again.

How many more years until we see a runway extension and the C series hopping in and out of YTZ? Money talks and it’s surely inevitable. Hopefully they’ll knock down those smoke stacks at some point.

Re: Regional Career

Go to mainline and establish seniority on the most junior aircraft. Stay senior on the most junior aircraft. If you enjoy regional airline type flying, fly the E190 or A220. The regional airline world is cutthroat. Air Canada is ten times more secure than Jazz, Encore, Sky Regional, and Georgian. J...

Re: Regional Career

Someone once said the mainline thing was basically the same job for more money. Less days worked, less legs, for more money. Layover in bigger cities. Same view out the front. However there are little to no single-dayers and more jetlag potential at a mainline carrier. So if those are important fact...

Re: Boeing Systemic Problems Continue

You guys can toot your “sub-standard” training and incompetence horns all you want, but the cold hard reality is that not all airlines are alike, and neither are their training standards. So the onus is on the aircraft manufacturers to adequately dummy-proof their aircrafts. Two crashes from the sam...

At the end of the day, you have to really enjoy flying the airplane. Joining this industry is a gamble.

Re: Pilot in waiting working the ramp?

I wouldn’t take a ramp position if you have 500+ hours. They’re exploiting you still, and you should be guaranteed a captain position after you’re “initiation” if you will. You should be able to hold a Navajo captain slot with that kind of time. Assuming your a decent pilot.
