Re: Trudeau Throne Speech.. any comprehensive support for aviation?

wasn't there suppose to be some rally in Ottawa by those in the aviation industry on the 23rd? Haven't seen anything about it in the news. If there was, certainly shows the impact it had :roll:

Re: People just want their money back, forget credits.

Our useless gov't is to blame. Everywhere else around the world the gov'ts gave airlines much needed money, so that they could refund passengers! Canadian airlines have asked the gov't to do the same so that they could refund, because without that cash most, if not all airlines will go under if they...

Re: YYC Free!! Experienced Co-Pilot!

Free! Worth what you pay for it! I agree that the post is sort of in poor taste given the timing but do you honestly think that there is no value in flying around with an experienced professional pilot even if only to experience a different perspective? This isn’t 200 hour Timmy we are talking abou...

Re: College of Pilots?

What I've heard as well, ACPA wanted everything their way. Funny how the big boy pants go on when dealing with other pilot groups but not for management. :roll:

Re: Transat or Sunwing ?

Any company have their pros and cons. A quick look at both: As Panama stated, fleet wise, SW 37's, AT different types, but soon it'll be a common Airbus fleet. SW upgrade in a year or less if you meet the mins. AT around 5 yrs. Destinations, SW down south, Euro deployments. AT down south, regular Eu...

Re: WestJet pilots to fly Swoop aircraft

Most are saying BOTL for the Swoop guys. It was recently mentioned in a previous post; but shouldn't they still be blacklisted/banned and shown the door? If you circumvent the blacklist now, it will have little effect in the future should a similar circumstance arise. Those facing a blacklist won't ...

Re: Wesjet encore or jazz ?

At Jazz, as of July 1st a 20 yr captain would make 129.98/hr and (2% increase each year there after). Guaranteed 77.5/mth, therefore base salary would be 120,881.40.

Re: Wesjet encore or jazz ?

If mainline is your goal, Encore. Quicker upgrades (they are hiring DEC) Jazz upgrades are about 2 yrs, maybe more. Guarantee flow to mainline, and I'm sure after the dust settles, Swoop. AC is hiring large numbers from Encore. Jazz just has the random shot at AC. If to stay at a regional, Jazz. Bet...

Re: Exit Polls Showing Over 90% Strike Mandate Support

If WestJet mgmt or any other airline mgmt wants to make public perception of pilots bad, well that will only mean less people wanting to be pilots. Less pilots in the current market conditions will only mean better pay and working conditions to attract an already shortage, accelerated by initial cor...
