Re: Looking into Rotational positions for FO

I’m training at a school in Québec city. Did my PPL and CPL training there. Did my commercial flight test a few weeks ago, just missing some hours. Currently finishing MIFR in Cornwall, did my multi flight test yesterday. Not using any of the VAC benefits, didn’t want to wait until my release to sta...

Re: Alternate minima

I sent an email to the quebec transport Canada office on Sunday and a guy called me today after lunch. I was say I was quite surprised at how quick they respond. He told me that runways intersecting don’t matter at all, pavement touching or not. He even told me that reciprocal runways could be used ...

Re: Alternate minima

He knows the difference about IMC and IFR, I was just illustrating how hard it can be to know the correct interpretation of a definition in the AIM or car’s. When you write the commercial written, a sizeable chunk feels like a language test and guess the best interpretation. I was wondering about wh...

Re: Alternate minima

None that I know of. Also, most airport with intersecting runways seem to have one runways served by an ILS and the other one being mostly RNAV. East of Montreal, only St John’s and Halifax seem to have 2 precision approaches that qualify for the alternate minima. To be fair with my instructor, a lo...

Alternate minima

I was planning a IFR flight today with my instructor and we had a different interpretation the definition of “two or More Usable Precision Approaches–each providing straight-in minima to separate suitable runways” in the CAPGEN. For example, CYYT has an an ILS on both runway 11 and 16. To me, if the...

Re: P-3 or CP-140?

I used to be a tech on the aurora and I have flown many time with the aircraft in the us, Canada and internationally. I can’t remember them using the p3 designator in Canada but I heard them use it many times outside Canada. They would use it with their CANFORCE callsign. Basically, the first aurora...

Re: Looking into Rotational positions for FO

I’ve read those reference many times and it doesn’t really apply to my situation since I’m not a military pilot. Maybe my FE experience is worth nothing in terms of flying hours but it shows my experience in multi-crew, CRM, etc. Currently overseas on a 8 month tour until September then I’ll put it ...

Re: Looking into Rotational positions for FO

I keep hearing that it’s about who you know. Too bad for me I know few people yet. I know a few people at a good charter operation that could give me good chances to start on the pc-12 which is a pretty good option. But I’d like to find a rotational job if possible so I can live with my spouse on ti...

Re: Looking into Rotational positions for FO

Really!?! Didn’t think right seat with 250hrs was even a possibility on those airframes. It seems to be a rarity even on the beech 1900. Good to know.

Re: Looking into Rotational positions for FO

Looking into Rotational positions for FO

I’ve been trying to find information about rotational jobs available for first officers. I have seen posts about such positions for AC’s mainly. I think air inuit and PAL are some operators with rotational jobs. Any other operators I should know about? Also, what is the main hiring season for most o...
