Re: Air Canada Pay

I mean he's not wrong. Year 3 at AC is the best paying pilot job I've even had and I've been a professional pilot for 15 years previously. It's a Canada wide problem.

Re: The Air Canada OTS thread

What's so bas about the dreaded reserve? Is it just not being able to plan your month? How often do you get called out? Are there months where you get paid just to sit at home? If you get called out can you pass it on to someone less senior than you if they are available? Is there a limit to that?

Re: C Series lands at EGLC. Toronto Island loses out. Again.

When a Q400 selects beta on landing at the Island you can hear it in Mississauga. The difference is it's a low pitch sound which is less irritating than a jet screeching.

Re: Hydro Helicopter Tweed

Not to hijack this too much, but have you noticed how most crew riding in a shuttle don’t wear their seatbelts? I find this equally odd, especially when we are hurtling around the streets of Montreal.... I'm typically the only person that wears a seat belt in the crew bus. Despite most of these peo...

I believe there's still a pool. They won't tell you you're in it though, and an email saying they haven't finished reviewing your application means you're not in it yet.

Re: Boeing allegedly Misled FAA on MAX certification.

Don't forget the media is wrong about just about every aviation story (and probably everything else too). One reporter misunderstands something then all the other journalists reprint it and cite the first one as their source.

Re: Quebec R44 missing.

In my experience helicopters crash constantly. Then the helicopter they send to find the first one that crashed crashes too.
