Re: 200 Hrs CPL getting hired at 703

They seriously put those kids from Seneca straight on regionals? Or just top student of class?

Re: First job options, outside ON or in ON

Good stuff but makes sense that university would come on top. Hopefully that wont be a strict requirement down the road. I always keep hearing that its useless pass first job really once experience is pocketed, any company puts that on top. Also from personal experience surrounded by people who fin...

Re: 200 Hrs CPL getting hired at 703

So to strategize, as a right seater, you will log PIC twice as long as Instructor lets say, or other single piston job. From my understanding they switch on each leg am I right? But you dont get much night time on single as well as no IFR? So then what would be the best strategic moves to see region...

Re: 200 Hrs CPL getting hired at 703

So to jump on this discussion, the lets say instructor job wont bring you night flying too much? But PIC will be achieved quite fast? Its a 15000 extra as well for stepping stone job. Or is it better to find right seat, got confusing.

Re: First job options, outside ON or in ON

This is dinosaur information but it may provide to be helpful. My first job was as a single engine instructor in a single engine operation which proved to be a dead end. However, it led to another job as a single and multi ifr instructor job, plus, they did multi engine charter work, and i also did...

Re: First job options, outside ON or in ON

There are plenty of rotational 703/704 gigs out there that will let you live in Toronto. Borek is the one that immediately springs to mind and as the "shortage" deepens, more companies will start to offer rotations. As others have alluded to, these companies are down to the short and curlies for hi...

Re: First job options, outside ON or in ON

So how are you going to get onto "something bigger" if you don't have a MIFR and only an instructor rating? What are you going to fly? A PC12, VFR? e Yeah, leave Toronto dude. You won't find many jobs in Toronto with your "experience" I was actually debating on MIFR alone vs instructor alone vs bot...

Re: First job options, outside ON or in ON

Thanks for all reaponses. I do agree on keeping boundaries open and trying different things. I actually would love to do something more interesting than instructing, but I feel my age is pushing it to not have much time to explore but rather just jump in and get hours, maybe Im wrong. Instructing is...

Re: First job options, outside ON or in ON

Thanks for your responses so far, just a question. I would guess getting a share in a plane won't save much money instead of getting Instructors and earning some back, and won't companies like to see any type of working experience? I thought it gives them an idea that you have some working experienc...

Re: Career in Aviation, realistic expectations

Hi, I just recently registered here, been reading mostly before, but as mentioned above would like to PM the 2 people that encouraged the starting people to do so. Unfortunately it won't allow me to do that as a new member. If anyone can share something would be great. I am 30 and already started PP...
