Re: Cessna Pilot Scam

I received this email in response to the Cessna Pilot job ad that has since been removed: I require a donation of $29 via email money transfer for the info if sent within 2 hours or $34 after. This will reduce your competition drastically when you submit your resume and I will be able to spend more...

Re: What are the unlucky doing?

Laid off Airbus Capt. I was a trucker back in the 90s, so I went back to long haul. The weather in the US the past few weeks has been less than fun, and I’m not enjoying driving for 22-25 days a month, but I’m lucky I have a job. Tons of companies begging for drivers out there, so if you’re on EI g...

Re: Trudeu Bans All Cruise Ships From Canada Until Next Year

Great, but 500 people who live in high density housing can all take lunch break at the meat packers together, but lets ban all cruise ships. I think most of us can agree that food products are a necessity. Cruises, not so much. Plus they are terrible for the environment, I wouldn't care of the crui...

Re: Is being a Commercial Pilot in Canada worth it?

While I agree with Porcsord, I think the biggest factor that turns me off is the starting wages. It takes around 4-5 years once you get to some professional level to get paid enough to be able to rent your own apartment. Which shouldnt be the case in our profession and its frustrating, but we all wa...

Re: Fox Flight Pay

I used to work for them and boy let me tell you was it a top notch operation. I wouldn't even worry about the pay rates because they are such a pleasure to fly for that no amount of money will take away from the absolute joy you feel when you're called in with plenty of notice to operate a transatl...

Re: Anybody Joining/Rejoining the Airforce?

For anybody considering joining, I was told by a recruiter that the seneca program has been suspended. So the only options left are DEO (if you have a degree) or RMC (aka 4 years of doing a degree followed by a couple more years of training). I was told the DEO pilot CFAT test score threshold is se...

Its just a hit piece to make the airlines look bad.. yet again.

Re: Porter Airlines shifts restart of flights date to June 29

Interesting idea, what's to stop WestJet from acquiring Porter under the same scenario? They could gain a significant foothold in eastern Canada using Porter's branding. Incompatible philosophies. WestJet charges you for everything after you board. Porter charges you for nothing . And it's not the ...

Re: Equipment bid

So is there a system wide bid in January or not ? Historically, we don’t usually find out until just before or even after the date required in the contract, I believe it is January 15.
