In other words, when they send you the email to appear for an assessment how much time do you normally have. I plan on leaving the country for a bit and I wo...

Applying to multiple FIRs

Hello again all

I am wondering if it is possible to apply to more than one FIRs under the new system that Nav Canada uses, the workday site?
My thought process would be that it would improve my chances if i were able to apply all over the country

Thank You

Re: FEAST

So to be clear, the initial step in the process is the 8 minute online test and the essay, then the people who who do well gets invited to FEAST at the ACC then the third stage is the 2 day boot Camp? I understand that this process is new and there isn’t much information on it yet.

Hi, i've done the FEAST. It replaces the paper based (w-sim) in-person assessment session. The FEAST is a computer based testing. If successful, you're moved onto the "boot camp" 2 days at the ACC. I believe the new process is quite fast. Should take 6 months ish to get into the pool. Depending on ...

Re: Which FIR region in Canada gives you the best chance of getting into IFR

Why the instance on IFR? Both training streams are incredibly challenging. I recommend to people to take what they get. You odds at a licence are better if you start VFR then you can bid into IFR after 3 years with the security of return rights to your VFR unit. In the last contract they froze all ...
