Re: The Air Canada OTS thread

Would anyone mind commenting on what the in person interview is like in 2019? I went through it over a decade ago, but just curious what the new format is like.

Thanks in advance. Sorry for asking in 2 threads, I got confused where I was...

Re: King Air Pilots Should Look at Their Fuel Caps Before Takeoff

Heard a second hand story of a King Air out of YXD having a fuel cap pop out after takeoff, and as the story went the medics pointed out the massive fuel leak, so the crew joined a circuit and landed immediately. They say the tank was basically empty by the time they taxi'd in. Pretty powerful vacuu...

Re: Swoop/Sunwing???

Kind of weird, but if Swoop wants to distance itself from Westjet, and yet be able to offer more than just Canadian cities, then an interline agreement makes sense.

If it puts more bums in Sunwing seats I'm sure they are on board. Or who knows, maybe Onex and TUI have eyes for each other.

Re: $90k or higher.

Alkan, and NT Air pay close to that, but neither rotate you. Perhaps KBAL or Tindi, would.

It starts in the 60s but you can negotiate higher based on experience. You'll have to sign a bond. You'll be assigned a base, and expect it to be northern. Don't count on Edmonton or Calgary.

Re: 50 hours and no solo

Ask to see you PTR. It's yours and it's your right to see what's written in it about you and your progress or lack thereof. When I instructed I usually wrote up the PTR with the student's present so they knew exactly where they stood, and what they needed to work on most.

Re: Central Mountain Air weekly job ad...

What people don't seem to understand is that there is no need for CMA or any other small 705 to be "just a stepping stone". They could be a decent place to hang your hat for a good career if they just saw past the short term gain once in a while. CMA has some career people, as do Pasco, Sunwest, Car...

Re: Gender X weight

I feel that "Gender X" is identity appropriation. It's far too similar to "Generation X", "Gen X", etc, and unfairly associates/confuses with my age identity. There are 23 other letters to choose from, plus infinite numbers, or just plain old something else. Gen X came first. Those incels better pi...
