We’re not talking about a certified cessna or piper where I hear it’s a little more difficult due to the maintenance standards , if anyone has pros and cons pl...

Re: PPL training on floats?

Marakii. If you want to fly floats for a living buy a relatively cheap float plane and do all your flying on it up to your commercial pilots license and you will have no problem getting a job. Then if you want to sell the airplane and get your money back. Sounds good, but don’t operators want “comm...

Re: Part time float jobs?

You might be able to find someone needing part time help on the dock and maybe occasional flying if they have a 185 or something. Around here in NWO there are quite a few part timers flying but they are all high time guys flying Otters and bigger stuff like that. A 100 hour float pilot normally nee...

Re: Question for Brampton students

Hi. Brampton is at full training capacity. The college students have booking priority, and they have fights reserved in the mornings, which isn't helpful. Typically, you want to schedule your flights at least a month in advance, if you want to fly in daylight. Booking anything within 2 weeks is pos...

Our company told us the same- working more days to make up the difference, you know, since it's somehow our problem.
So basically, they won't hire more just make the present pilots fly more days per month.

Well that doesn't sound good, so what are we saying 20 to 25 days a month on the job?
