Re: Air Canada and Transat announce Increased Purchase Price to $18 per Share

FL-280 it seems to me that your only interest here lies in a pissing match rather than a discussion of the issues. I bid you a good day sir. To my Transat colleagues, don't feed the troll. Autrement dit ne vous obstinez pas avec un enfant. Nous avons beaucoup de points a discuter. BOTL n'est pas un...

Re: 2020 Hiring

At least at Swoop you could see the left seat in less than a decade. I suppose it depends on what is important to you in life, having the ego trip of four bars or making money? If you can't stand to be an FO, I guess you go to Swoop and make FO wages. Or, you go to mainline and out-earn a swoop cap...

Re: 2020 Hiring

Looking to clarify some things I've read on this thread. I saw someone mention that YYC is now the more senior base and a new hire would expect approx 2 yrs wait in YYZ. Is that 2 years for an OTS guy like myself or would that timeline be for an encore pilot? I understand this might be a "can of wo...

Re: Westjet CYHZ

I have gouge for my aircraft. If I don’t see 50 kts with a good decel by the 3 board, I execute a go around, giving me 3,000 ft to get airborne. I feel that once the aircraft touches the ground, crews are sometime mentally committed to landing. There is always a go around option if you know your ai...

Re: One List is Back!!

Of course management is going to be looking for jobs... they're the ones who have a target on their back. Onex isn't going to want to pay hundreds of people to do the jobs of tens. As far as pilots are concerned, why wouldn't you always have an eye out? Air Canada pilots apply for WestJet too. It g...

Re: The sad state of regional pilots in Canada

You might read things on here like "now has never been a better time to become a pilot". You hear about signing bonuses of up to $40k, regional pilots topping $60k in their first year. Most seem happy with their career thus far. Sounds good right? Nope, no such luck in Canada. Let's do the math (al...

Re: Swoop ?

By that logic A380 pilots should make the same as a CRJ100. Hell, the guy doing minow trapping in a supercub, $2500/month plus room and board. They're all airplanes, not rocket ships. The bigger the plane, the bigger the paycheck. Similar sized planes doing similar work should pay the same. Swoop 7...

Re: The Air Canada OTS thread

Use to take 10 years to FO wide body. Crazy!!!! Making 50 grand in the right seat , I think AC pilots should not look any other airline crew in the eyes as we walk by in the terminal. We suck...... I'm a bit surprised foreign carriers aren't actively trying to poach these WB FO new hires after they...

Re: Jazz Approach

I’ve always said this would happen. It’s the next logical step for Canadian aviation. Most of the other countries you don’t have to “pay your dues” up North or work as a flight instructor. You simply finish your training and get on with an airline in a mentor ship role. Sit as a Second officer and ...

AC pilots will end up in aribitration sooner than later.
