Re: The Air Canada OTS thread

With the massive amount of pilots being hired all at the same time recently (especially young guys in their 20's), would it still be worth pursuing Air Canada if meeting the requirements is still about 3-5 years away? I kind of feel like I missed the boat and seniority is going to be the bane of my ...

Anybody have any updated numbers for King Air FO and/or C208 PIC rates? You can PM me if you'd prefer.

Re: Ontario Road Trip

One of the few advantages of being a chief pilot in a mid size company, is that you can usually take the weekends off. At small operators (family run, few airplanes) the chief pilot will most likely operate like any other employee. I doubt anyone will just be sitting in an office on saturday though...

Ontario Road Trip

I have a really dumb question... I’m pretty doubtful, but do any chief pilots work on weekends? I’ve finally got a string of days off and can make a mini road trip work. One of those days is on the weekend unfortunately, but I’m curious if I could make use of that day or not. Hoping to visit a coupl...

Air Canada Hiring

Does Air Canada have to take 60% of their new hires from all express carriers or is it just Jazz? If it’s from Express in general, what portion comes from Sky? And if it’s just Jazz, does Sky have any sort of agreement with Air Canada? Not a deal breaker at all, just curious.

Re: Are you a pilot-in-waiting?

Summit Air and North Star Air should be on top of your list for interviewing pilots in waiting. Those two places still have some unrealistic PIW times with the way the industry is moving right now. Their employees will be perfect for your project - you'll go in looking to make a short movie but wil...

Re: Where are 200HR wonders going these days?

Be 3rd officer for evveerrrrrr Haha probably. Bit risky going there right now especially with no experience. If things go wrong you’re back to square one with no type rating. But it is an option.. Aren't you essentially stuck there till you are at FO? I don't think second officers can log time and ...

Re: ONEX plans

How long will ONEX give Boeing to get the MAX in the air before they make the switch to NEO ?? I’m sure AC is kicking themselves for going With Boeing !!! If only it were that easy... The new livery would look great on the 320NEO though 8) https://sjc1.discourse-cdn.com/infiniteflight/uploads/defau...

Re: Sault Aviatoin, is it as bad as many have posted..

Fellow Aviators.. Agree as well, the list pretty much tells it all and accurate. Just completed our 5th semester/second year, should be working on finishing our Commercial as per the schools outline. Instead 95% of the class were just trying to fishing our Private that we started from last spring 2...

Re: Logging cruise relief time outside of Canada

The T&C at Cathay are absolute sh!te. You make more as a Cathay year 1 SO than a year 1-4 AC FO on flat pay (min guarantee ~$93k/year CAD) and this is on the CX D scale or COS18. Rent is higher but you’ll still be better off. If anything, we're fighting for better wages in Canada by leaving the cou...

EDIT: Never mind.. The contract has a minimum pay and pilot allowance which is what is advertised, so disregard!

Re: Logging cruise relief time outside of Canada

@twa22 off topic, but how long have you been waiting for an interview date at CX? I’m sitting at a month and a half after submitting all the documents they wanted in the initial invitation. I followed up by email to see if maybe they were still waiting for something, but that isn’t the case. :?
