Re: Surplus of instructors?

I wonder if the average quality of instruction will rise or fall, given all the exposure to airline operations these instructors will have had. Honestly, it could go either way. Silver lining in all of this, I think we will see the quality of instruction go up and those ones who are just in it to g...

Re: Best guess when recalls could happen

Another major point that I think needs to be highlighted by the airlines, is that (as far as I have been able to find) is that there were no "super spreader" events that came from air travel. So even before the masks, it simply was not a major point of spread. You can’t possibly be serious. How do ...

But Buffalo is still safe because they haven’t killed anyone. That means all those annoying things like CRFI, minimums, and approach ban doesn’t apply to them.
Gravel runways dont have a CRFI. Just a surface condition. That isn't even right half the time.

Re: Air Canada and Transat announce Increased Purchase Price to $18 per Share

One thing is for certain, OTS hiring will surely be completely halted for a year at least. If they lay off in those numbers, forget OTS, it will be 2-3 years before everyone is recalled. At a minimum, there should be some form of ‘mutuality’ developed within the AC brand family of pilots. Neither S...

Re: Wil Jazz hire with instructing time only?

All depends whether you score enough diversity points with Jazz. I have 1900 hours with ATPL signed off, 900 multi turbine time. Got PFOd.

Thanks for all the replies.

The regional airline was already interested in me with my 800 total hours however with this huge ...

At least they dry your hands quickly rather than those Blast ones in Montreal that just make your f*cking ears ring more than anything else.
Absolutely hate the washrooms in Montreal for this reason. How hard is it to replace those useless things.

Re: DEC

There are 2 remaining Express carriers. Both now are manifesting issues of lack of internal candidates for upgrade. Big problem at Jazz is the upgrade treadmill (as there are no min experience requirements for upgrade other than ATPL). Get hired. Upgrade in 12-18 months. Leave for AC 3 months later...

Re: August Equip Bid

The biggest barrier to Jazz providing 60% going forward (for example 0.6 x 600 = 360) for 2020 is the lack of qualified candidates (ATPL plus 2000 hours). The big winners will be the recent Jazz hires who meet these minimum qualifications and could leapfrog those that do not. So is it not a 2 year ...
