Still looking for a Pitts but if anything changes I’ll be sure to message you. Thanks for the reply though.

Pitts S1 Project

Anyone happen to know of any Pitts S1 projects sitting in the back of a hangar somewhere? Any condition. C, D, S, T ect. Lots of projects in the states but hard to find up here in Canada?

Re: The Return to Normal?

This recovery, or not, will be driven by our Governments response. Full stop. Six months of this virus has given us enough knowledge to formulate a plan that DOESN"T continue locking down the healthy. The healthy and young are not at risk. Yes they can absolutely spread it, but if those they spread...

Personally I'd trade having it for two weeks rather than lose my house.

Just my opinion though.

Re: Coronavirus Numbers

Reported numbers and mortality rates are USELESS. They are only good at causing enough concern to self isolate as to not overload the medical system. Hundreds of thousands have probably already had it, but were not tested. Mortality rates are only a factor of those "known" with this Flu bug. Since ...

Love avcanada. The industry is crumbling around us and we're too busy berating some 23 year old Jazz kid for calling his old man cheap.

Re: Grab a seat. The music is stopping

There have been and will continue to be massive financial losses. Not just for airlines. It's no secret that airlines have razor-thin margins and the supply chain is global, thus vulnerable. But Flybe is a non-sequitur, they should have folded much sooner. It's true this is worse than the flu - alt...

Don't try and predict anything. This past summer I was called 1 week after my interview, to start PIT 2 weeks later. OTS. The girls in HR are very warm, welcoming and professional btw.

Re: Regional Career

The last few PIT courses were mostly Jazz....so yeah not many 35-50 year olds. Lots of OTS older guys have been hired this year. My summer PIT course was a mix. Early 20’s to mid 50’s. Many of us were in our 30’s; coming from overseas, military or other Canadian airlines. I’m not on the hiring team....

Re: The Air Canada OTS thread

Flat pay is crap. Not doubt about it. As a new hire, I think altiplano’s posts are pretty accurate. I think he paints a pretty realistic picture of what an average new hire could expect. Actually, if you’re fortunate to get Rouge 767 out of GS or transfer into Rouge on the 319 or 767, you’ll actuall...

Re: Pension

With the new AC pension "scheme", are you allowed to take out the commuted value when you retire instead of the payments? A typical DB plan would allow you to:

Transfer a large chunk to a LIRA.
Throw the remainder into your existing RRSP (if you had the room).
Take the rest in cash.

Thanks

To the ORIGINAL poster, I find I get to spend way more quality time with my family as an airline pilot. Yes 9-5 is nice. Yes sleeping in your own bed is nice. But, 9-5 banker's usually leave at 8-8:30 depending on where you live and come home around 5:30-6. Also most FP's have to meet up when client...
