Re: Recession incoming

Spending IS the economy. You are so off base it isn't funny. Investing is usually just hording, dead money, useless to anybody. I think that what they're saying is in a recession it would not be as bad because people would have savings vs spending it all. So I guess that means if we spend more we h...

Re: Joining the RCAF at 37 years old

Wonder if someone in the forces can answer. If we have x amount of pilots, and we have a shortage, why do they still make those pilots do things like work desks and other office jobs? If they were flying more that would solve the shortage no? I don't get it.

Re: Regional Career

35 is kind of a low arbitrary number to choose. Many many new hires well over that age. To each their own of course. But giving up a mainline career with all its blemishes for a regional one is a bad idea. Unless you are totally adverse to giving up the 4th bar go to mainline. 10 times out of 10. W...

Re: Harvs Air ATPL

Im studying it now, and it's pretty good, they do a good job of explaining things with diagrams and what not. The only thing is there is alot of useless or not very important info which makes the course pretty long. Most of it won't be in the tests.

On the 737 at WestJet mainline, take home pay varies greatly depending on %ESP you put in.

if you do the full 20% your take home pay WILL be around 2000$/month. It is very sad.
Wow that's less than Jazz starting pay (well close considering ESP)

There is definitely something coming. I saw on one of their social media posts, a picture of their blank CRJ with the caption "Exciting things are happening".

I sure hope they stick around. Just more opportunities for pilots.

So I just got billed by my flight school for the PGI's I'd done during training. However they were all charged at the instructor rate of $65, however a lot of these PGI's had up to 6 other students attend. Is it normal to be charged the 1 on 1 rate for group PGI's. I thought it was split amount the...

I know this is dependent on many factors but what would the average time be to bid from a YVR to eastern base like YUL or YYZ?
YUL probably right away. YYZ i don't know, probably a while type depending.

Heard that the two last GS were yvr Q4 only, is that base super empty and they try to fill it up or is there still some quick lateral movement to other bases possible early during training or right after it ( In other words, should I plan to establish in YVR for 20 minutes or 20 centuries? :lol: ) ...

Re: A message to all GGN Pilots from a Jazz Pilot

GGN is up to no good again! Jazz released the list of pilots (by seniority) that they could accept in the next ground school and GGN said no! Essentially they only want to deem the “problem pilots” as surplus while holding the pilots who rightfully should have gone to Jazz at the beginning of Octob...

Are they short instructors? Are their instructors paid by the flight hour? Most "big" flight schools in Canada are busy enough that students can't even do commercial time building during the day time. Aircraft don't make money sitting on the ground.
