Re: The Air Canada OTS thread

Currently showing 836 vacancies. That doesn't include retirements over the next year, fleet expansion, increased positions for new duty rules, etc.

Nor does it include the merger of Air Transat pilot however.

Things must have changed since I was in the industry I can't remember many pilots getting to that pay level in less than ten years.
There are NB Captains at AC in their 20's, I've heard.

Re: The challenges for us all in flying green

Interesting that KLM's latest advertising suggests that you ask yourself if you really need to fly or not. It's obviously virtue signalling as I'm sure they did the math and realized they could put out something like this and it wouldn't hurt their bottom line. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L4htp2...

Jazz in association with Seneca College and CAE are launching a pay for type rating program with the promise of a FO job at Jazz upon completion (some conditions apply). Coming with zero flight time you will start with 18 months of integrated ATPL training at Seneca followed by the CRJ200 type ratin...

Re: Air Canada Pay

I believe that is the truth for you Schnitzel but many AC pilots are forced to listen to their friends and acquaintances go through some kind of weird coping mechanism to justify why it's a good thing they never applied, or did and got PFO'd. So we tend to automatically tune out when someone starts ...

Re: Regional Career

I had 5000+ hours command and an ATPL I would have done anything to be an FO on the -8 at Jazz and never could get a call from them.

Re: The Air Canada OTS thread

Everyone seems so outraged over but has anyone asked those people if they mind? Perhaps someone coming from a widebody background would prefer staying on the widebody instead of being an EMB FO and flying 2 turns a day to Nashville or whatever they do.

Re: Air Canada and SFO - Part III

If they are distracted by something. Having to switch frequencies at the busiest time of an approach always seemed weird to me. This is compounded by SOPs that pile on the workload at the FAF and at 1000 AGL when this frequency change usually occurs.

Re: The Air Canada OTS thread

Sounds corny but you get more than just pay working as an FO, you get experience. Sure you learn while you're an RP too but it's a far cry from actually doing it. FO experience helps you be a Captain. RP experience helps you be an FO, if you need it.

Make your millions flying overseas, come back to Canada to spend some time with family. Buy the house with cash and get a crap paying job to keep entertained until retirement in a couple years.

They did. And that job is pilot at Air Canada. :lol:

Re: Air Canada staff will no longer greet 'ladies and gentlemen' onboard planes

I'm waiting for someone to bring up having to select your gender when you print your boarding pass due to fascist Transport Canada average passenger weights, and the bigoted laws of physics that prevent airplanes from flying with 300 Xirs on board.

Re: The Air Canada OTS thread

There are 777 Captains joining AC these days as new hires. I don't think they are worried about the extra responsibility of being 787 FO. If anything some people probably prefer to be flying instead of being a ride along.

What would they do differently if they were told they were in the pool though? Telling people they are in the pool is a nightmare from an HR standpoint. In the past people were placed in the pool and thought it meant they were hired and they just had to wait for a start date. Then a couple of years ...
