Re: Hiring outlook

What's the flow speed now ? Still 3 years and 1 month for a brand new FO ? I think the 5+ years flow is more realistic. 80 pilots flowed in 2017. I believe it was less in 2018. It will likely be the same or less in 2019. I would go with 70 pilots per year.....equals well over 5 years. As the previo...

Medevac King Air Captain could just go straight to mainline. Why would he bother going to Encore.

Thank you very much for this. Hopefully they will come up with a comm soon so we can be all on the same page while these constructions last. Like the airport itself wasn't enough of a nightmare for you already... :(

Re: Yul LNAV 06L

Thanks for the reply, I appreciate. Any chance we could relay this info to the airlines so that we as pilots get a document allowing us to shoot the lnav 06L and therefor avoid confusions and backlog? Cause unless we get that, the only info we get us to not do the approach. (We have no idea that you...

Yul LNAV 06L

Hi Yul atc, Quick question for you. On the jeppesen plate it clearly says in the note that we cannot shoot an rnav lnav approach onto 06l of simultaneous approach are in progress. Since the lpv and lnav/Vnav are notamed anybody who read their plate has to deny the rnav 06L approach. Many aircraft in...

1000 king air fo making more? I call bs on that one. At the moment Fast Air's FOs (And I'm sure it's the same in some other Medevac companies) make more money than what I used to make at Encore on the Left seat. Of course it involves PerDiems, Mileage, base pay, etc... but at the end of the day tak...

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...

Re: Well, well... Watch these two pros!

Landing gear was down above 500ft. Don't know the plane, don't know their SOP, don't know how long it took them to then touchdown but the video stopped and they still had quite a bit to go. Who are we to judge them based from our standards? Yes it was a bit close, was it unsafe? Doesn't look like it...

Re: The Air Canada OTS thread

in that case, it may be a good idea to bring the "pool" back instead of letting pilots in limbo for months at a time. I have quite a few friends that have done interview in the last 4 months and still don't know if it's a PFO or not.

Re: What can a Q4 experienced DEC earn at Encore?

As a DEC I wouldn't bother coming to Encore. You will be working a lot more than anywhere else, pay isn't that great (I know 1000h King Air FOs making more), The FO level is dropping very quickly, no flow to mainline as of now, no One list, 50% of your pairings end with an extension...

Re: Encore with under 1000 Hours?

If you have any time... go straight to mainline. Most captains at Encore basically have more hours than ALL the OTS COMBINED! Well one of the recent classes I heard they all had around 4000 hours with some up to 5000+. Let’s use an average on the low end for that group..say 3500 hours. Are you sayi...

Re: A "NEW" One List?

I love how in order for the One list to come back again there is this lay off protection that is so important for the WestJet pilots. So if something happens at mainline, they can go back to Encore. I agree 100%. But in that case, let's make it work both ways. If something happens to Encore the Enco...

Correct, I edited the post. But the point remain the same, you would be making more money and fly a jet that most company uses. The Q400 open some doors but the 737 opens a lot more.

Encore without the One List

I've been thinking a lot about posting here since the One List got voted down but here is the truth... Coming to Encore to then go to Westjet is in my opinion a waste of time. If you are an FO at Encore, you should try to go to Sunwing, Transat, Jazz and even Swoop. Actually if you are currently a F...
