Re: One List

Encore and WestJet are separate companies. One of the terms of employment for a pilot being hired by Encore was a position on the WestJet System seniority list (or whatever it was called.) They were hired with the expectation and promise of flow to mainline, but it was stripped from them and subseq...

Re: YUL Base

Certainly helpful. But not at all required for Pilots. Thx to both of you. Yea thats what I would think. Preference I assume is probably given to guys with French if your looking at two guys and that's the difference. No. It is not. Language has zero impact on what base you can hold. Only seniority.

Re: Potential Strike Topic?

Just so everyone is clear. As long as you spend 2 years at Jazz, have 2000 hours, have an ATPL you can apply to be interviewed at Air Canada. Air Canada will interview 90% of the pilots and 60% will be offered a position. Not quite. 60% of new hires each year at AC are supposed to come from Jazz. O...

Re: Everyone’s talking about it...

I didn't know that pilots who are flying 705 could do their own flight planning?... I believe it has something to do with total amount of seats at the operator and what category they are in (704 705) if you need co authority dispatch. IIRC, in order to have more than 3 705 category A/C in the air a...

Re: The Ol' PFO

Here’s an idea for AC. Forget about even bothering with interviewing JAZZ guys/gals. If they were good enough to get hired by JAZZ and fly AC passengers around for at least 2+ years then why the hell should they even need to be interviewed again by the mother ship. Jazz has the same medical, Psyc e...

Re: 737 Max 8 Simulators

Does anyone have a link to the video of the Asian F/O stomping his foot on the "runaway" 737 trim wheel? It's like 20 seconds long, supposed to be sarcasm for the new MCAS recovery method. Someone showed it to me but I can't find it online. Funny stuff! https://www.instagram.com/p/BvXFnTxlW15/?utm_...

Employee esop is being reduced from 60% to 25%. Well what's the point anymore?
Not for the pilots. Still 60% as per the MOS.
It’s 25 + 20% (as per MOS). So 45%.

Re: Jazz Pilot Pool

Either case people in the hiring pool are going to wait... If the vote is Yes I assume that GGN pilot are going to transition to Jazz but not all at the same. I think they're going to transition "by plane" and it could take up to 2 years. So let's suppose they have 200 pilots, 75 eligible to AC and...
