How long are upgrades taking?
Last upgrades - the lowest seniority have been there one year. But then they also have walked in with considerable time and command >100k kg time

Re: Operating crew / Catsa

Apparently this issue has raised its ugly head again. Contrary to a company memo detailing the TC memo about crew deadheading being 'crew operating in the course of their employment' - was just denied access to the YUL crew checkpoint as apparently there is a 'new' memo from TC that says our ticket ...

Re: 2018 Pilot Hiring

Would you think swg is better then AC? For me, absolutely. I'm come from overseas, done the wide body thing, done the mainline thing, now it's just about the lifestyle. I get to deploy to Europe, and internally in Canada, spend a ton of time at home with my young family. I couldn't ask for more (ex...

I'm refreshing this topic, any LOA's allowed?
They are allowed. All depends on pilot numbers. Only in summer. Some people have applied, and got it, some people refused.

Bottom line, much easier to get than other airlines, but not guaranteed.

There is nothing wrong with that at all. You seem to b...

I heard that ground school are delayed due to the 737 max's crews are re-dispatched on the others 737.. Someone can confirm?
All pilots at Sunwing fly the -800 and Max.
So as ant alludes to. The answer to your question is, no, the ground schools have not been delayed

What is considered senior these days? Are there a lot of long term pilots? If so, do these pilots have an ok family life considering the deployments? Just curios... looking at the CA, it doesn't seem too bad. All depends on your family tastes. There are plenty of families who consider the deploymen...

No call here.

B757 type. 5000 hours. tons of +12.5 multi turbine pic. 450 hours jet. ATPL. I'm baffled.

Must be a pretty deep pool.
Everyone I know who has been hired has come from an internal referral. If you know someone working there, push for that recommend.

Without a doubt Sunwing. Depending on experience upgrade times immediately to a couple of years.

WestJet I suspect somewhat more.

As a first year FO, I'm looking at about $90k this year all up.
