Traffic you cant explain

About 7 years ago I was flying VFR into CYHZ on a nice SKC day. The pilot I was flying with noticed traffic at our 12 o'clock probably 1000-2000 feet above us. It was a very difficult to make out what is was exactly. It was kind of light coloured but also bright. It was pretty stationary initially, ...

Re: Evas

EVAS pilots, keep it up and stay strong. Many have come before you and not had the courage to take action. Its really refreshing to see pilots unite try to make changes for the better. We all benefit across the board. Don't let management intimidate you, burn it to the ground if you must. I honestly...

Re: Air Canada Buys Air Transat

Meanwhile at WestJet all hell is breaking loose. Quite the week.

How will pay, seniority and flow work now with Transat in the AC picture? Should be fun to watch.

Re: Canadian North vs Regionals

Jazz gets you into AC eventually. Now that Transat is part of AC thats going to be an interesting place to be for sure.

Canadian North is great, but the North is not for everyone. Jazz keeps you near civilization.

Re: Westjet Mainline FO ad.

Why does WJ mainline even hire OTS? I mean, I know a handful of Encore Captains who have been there several years and still havent had the opportunity to flow up. Why not make the hires 100% from encore? It must be a little frustrating seeing waiting for the call when half the 737 classes are outsid...

Re: Thoughts - Cadet Pilot Trends

GGN did a cadet program a few years ago. I believe they had them train down in Florida at FlightSafety, then they came home and flew the 1900. I'm curious how those pilots are doing now, and if GGN would call the program a success or failure. I think the pilots paid for the training as any other pil...

Thoughts - Cadet Pilot Trends

Do we actually have a pilot shortage? Not sure why but I find it strange we are all saying there is a shortage, however wages are still low in comparison to other countries. I see articles in the news saying operators cant find pilots, but its strange we haven't seen the trends here that we see outs...

Visa sponsored jobs abroad

Hey everyone, I love Canada. Its a very desirable place to be, but I'd also like to do something different for a few years and make some money while I'm at it. I'm looking for information on working outside Canada. I know myself and plenty of others would happily put politics aside to work and live ...
