Gotta admit, I have only been in an aircraft with 60G80KT....but we were parked at the gate after not being able to make it out before the storm. 200knots seems like an exaggeration though. I disagree. 200 knots doesn't sound like an exaggeration at all to me. National Hurricane Centre says categor...

Re: New hire bids

I haven't seen the lifestyle at Encore, but I am right to be skeptical about Jazz based on the fact that they make you agree to move somewhere before telling you where. You don’t have to move anywhere. Their commuting policy is extremely generous. Not to mention that you’d likely get the base you w...

Re: The Ol' PFO

I think any time you get a “no thanks” from a prospective employer after going through their selection process, it is worth taking a look at yourself. There’s always a reason, even if you’re not immediately privy to it. The issue of “timing” is what hiring pools are for. Everyone can and should lear...

Never take my shoulder harness off during flight, unless I’m getting out of the seat for something. Don’t really even notice it’s there, it’s not uncomfortable for me. Whiners gonna whine I guess :wink:

Re: Will a bad written exam mark affect my career?

AC definitely does not ask for flight test marks. Unless that was decades ago. Everyone I talk to right now going through the process with AC has been asked for a printout from TC’s General Aviation Online Services page which includes all your flight test and written test history. Not sure if that’...

Only company I have ever heard of asking for a record of that sort of thing is AC. And even then they were more interested in the flight test marks, not the written tests.

Re: DOH merge.

WRONG. A seniority merger will happen. No Air Canada Express operator flys aircraft with more than 75 seats, and one will NOT be set up that does. Its crazy to think for even a second that there will be another airline with a separate pilot list flying around in large jets owned by AC. The Contract...

Just hop an Uber into town and expense it! Book yourself into a suite at a downtown hotel, unless there is a suitable one closer to the airport.
It’s cute that you joke about there being Uber in any of the places the OP is referring to.
