Re: CBAA 2019 Compensation Survey

Thank you! Interesting.... I would have thought some of the numbers would have been higher, and a little more differentiation between super heavy international Captain and a mid size captain. I am slightly sceptical about some of the numbers, given Sprints Citation pay and Legacy pay (5years) would ...

Re: CBAA 2019 Compensation Survey

Good luck, at most management companies, I'm seeing a reluctance to pay more than 120-140k in the left on mid-large jets unless you have extensive former experience or current on type. Right seat you can expect between 80-95k on the same equipment. Long range heavy equipment is harder to pin down. ...

Commute YYC-YYZ/YVR

Hi, Wondering if there are any fairly recent hires that are commuting from YYC. Are you willing to give me a quick low down of how it works? Do most reserves/blocks start in the morning? Do most commuters do the night before kinda things and stay at a crash pad? How often are you making it back to Y...

Re: Intentionally landing on public roads

Most A/C are SLIGHTLY beyond the maximum width allowance without an escort/permit. I do not recall seeing an A/C with turn signals, running and brake lights either. The vehicle equipment regulations of Alberta clearly state; Turn signal lamps 21(1) This section applies to a motor vehicle manufactur...

Re: Orca ad

rumor has it that Orca has offered to match the wage of HO' drivers who decide to jump ship from Sunwest. If that is true, could be an alright deal for those pilots. Sure would beat getting laid off. Hopefully Orca is smart enough to get a few people who know what they are doing. From what I have he...

Re: Mixing comercial and non-comercial flying

WOW! lots of good debate and places to look on here. Just to clarify, I would be acting as as a crew member on the KingAir200 flights, sometimes as the only crew member due to my friends inexperience. Insurance has provided blanket coverage provided pilots have a B200 type rating and 2500 hours of P...

Re: Slave Labour?

With jobs like this, the company is going to get exactly what it pays for. If a corporate pilot has the experience to take on a job like this and is willing to accept the crappy term, there must be a reason they couldn't get a better job, ie; a crappy pilot. This "dragging on the bottom of the barre...

Re: Medical in aviation booklet

I had the same situation happen to me. Called transport and they said to just go have it stamped at the examiner. As far as flying before then, you do have a old medical certificate validating an old license so the new one does not come into effect until you have received the new booklet. If you are...

Re: Jobs right out of school?

I know that you are probably quite eager to get out there and put your commercial license to good use, but the sad fact is right now jobs are hard to find even for some higher time people, so it is the bottom of the barrel type jobs you will find right now for someone in the 200 hour range.

Hey; Looks like you got the basics. I wish every new pilot to the industry was issued the guidelines that it looks like you are already following. My advice would be to figure out what you are going to do quickly and get on it. The past year has definitely been a pilots market, but it is quick to ch...

The School is still owned by Jayme and the CFI is still Sean. I haven't been there for a while but I heard that the owner just had a baby so he probably has his hands full with that so he is looking for an Ops manager.

He wasn't let go. He resigned.
I wouldn't call it a resignation, he just left before the actual words "your fired" could come out. That is why he just left mid-day with no notice at all. He knew he was getting fired and took the easy way out by just leaving.
