CATSA Aircrew Protocol

Hi, Where can CATSA’s aircrew screening protocol be found? Can they ask for my phone and conduct a search of my phone? Company IPad? When my lunch packs are confiscated when I am an operating crew member because they had a bad day. Then I end up throwing out my meals. What recourse do I have? Is CAT...

Re: Why can they get passenger rights but no proper rest and fatigue rules?

The general public has boundaries, agency Sense of self worth bordering on entitlement.

Pilots on that other hands.. many of us lack boundaries and self worth and sign self deprecating contracts amidst unprecedented hiring . 🤷🏻‍♂️

Re: Question regarding, manifests, airlines and regulations. Boarded a plane, fell asleep and missed my stop

Headcount and the manifest should match 100%. With this being said, it’s your responsibility to wakeup at your required stop. I’d have a hard time ( personally) asking for compensation in a case like this personally. However, that’s just me. I can just see myself asking my employer for a wakeup call...

Re: Is Air North reliable?

I’ve worked for Air North and also have relied on Air North as a passenger/ northerner.

I’ve seen AC cancel far more often than 4N.

You cannot go wrong with choosing them as your airline into/ out of Whitehorse.

Enjoy the meal, warm cookie and excellent customer service. Also, enjoy Whitehorse!

Re: Jazz to launch pay for type rating program

I have to ask though, why do you want to invest this much money into a crap paying job? A regular commercial license and multi-IFR will cost less and still get you a higher paying job if you're willing to leave a major city. It's not a done deal, I just seen the announcement and was a little excite...

Hello all, I have been following this thread for a few days now. I'm enlightened and a little disappointed. When I first seen the announcement from Jazz I was pretty excited.

Re: Jazz to launch pay for type rating program

Guys let’s calm down and step off our high horses and face the facts. Flying an airplane is really not that hard. There are a handful of exotic emergency situations that an inexperienced airline pilot might face but the odds are slim to none these days with all the training, automation, dispatch, m...

Re: Jazz to launch pay for type rating program

Watched the video many years ago. Explain to me this: the Colgan air accident was caused by an incorrect response to a stall by the Captain. He pulled when he should have pushed. That’s basic flying skills, much like knowing how to trim an aircraft. Look at the crew’s experience: Captain Renslow wa...

Yup! Pretty gutting! I’ll bet you it becomes harder for the 1000 HR pilot who has slung bags and cut their teeth up north to get a job with Jazz with this one. The 1000 + hour driver wont fit the koolaid requirements. - the college kid sure as sh&@ will.

Again, I’m not saying Jazz is a bad place to be. ( nor did you imply that I said this) I’m just questioning the validity of this experience level in the cockpit. I’m also seeing this program as a positive for the purely for the business and not safety and the industry working conditions as a whole. ...

I’ve always said this would happen. It’s the next logical step for Canadian aviation. Most of the other countries you don’t have to “pay your dues” up North or work as a flight instructor.

To be a pilot in the RCAF, you have to be an officer. We can debate the merits of the policy, but officers need to have at least at university undergraduate education. There are sone who don't but they're the exception and they are supposed to attain it. A RCAF pilot does not simply fly. In fact, i...

It’s good to see that the :45 flight planning segment had been done away with. Some stuff ( ZFW, Vref etc seems a bit overkill) - you won’t be using this formula in the real world.
