I expected HS/GED to be higher given the quality of posts on this site.
One would think some one who is "educated" and busted ass for 3 years :roll: would be more inclined to post more intelligently? Guess not.
Well I just have a HS diploma so what do I know.

Re: Is it worth it anymore? ( salaries ?)

If you want to be successful in this industry, you need to do more than sit at home and wait for a phone call. Hitting the road, making connections and networking is by far the best way to progress yourself in this job. Every job interview I've ever had was thanks to a connection.

Re: Is it worth it anymore? ( salaries ?)

That's what I'm trying to say. The OP wondered if it's worth it. I'm trying to say yes it is because things are moving a lot faster than they used to. I in no way feel entitled to this job, when I started I fully expected it to take 5-10 years to get to a regional. I can't complain though that thing...

If you compare driving a truck to flying an airplane a truck driver makes between $35,000 and $71,000 in Canada.
Yeah... But I don't want to drive a truck.

You can compare to other jobs all day long but if any of us didn't want to fly we wouldn't.

Re: Is it worth it anymore? ( salaries ?)

Three years of busting my ass from the end of flight school to 705 Captain, and with that decent pay and OK lifestyle which will only get better. Certainly more than any of my peers in other fields who have years more education than I do. They also work a lot more. It's not 2004 anymore. If your goa...

Re: Why would anyone want to go to Swoop?

Well, after all of the deductions & taxes on the esp, etc a 10 year Captain takes home about $2000 per pay cheque at WestJet and their hourly rate is close to double that of Swoop. The “financial perks” are also double. The saying at WJ is T4 rich and Cash poor. Not sure what it would work out to a...

Re: Porter airlines "conducting interviews prior to 1000 hours?"

Just about every 705 regional is hiring under 1000 now including Encore.

Not %100 sure with Porter but if they are following current trends I'd imagine so.

Apply and find out.

Good luck.

Re: Westjet Link delayed

Curious, with all the talk and hostility towards SWOOP, none towards Link? Isn't there a clause in the current WJ.contract that says all flying under the westjet name including affiliates and subsidiaries is to be done by westjet pilots?

The last thing we own at Jazz is our jump seat. So you'll always have priority over mainline employee regardless of what an agent might tell you. However, there are a number of Jazz employees that commute from YYJ, and there is only one JS. So if the plane is full and there is a sr employee also com...

On the day in question the weather was way below minimums for the LNAV with low cloud and fog, so I'm not sure how a legal contact approach is going to help. It will help if the weather is directly over the airport with it wide open over the ocean. Not saying that’s what happened here, but it’s qui...
