Don't try and predict anything. This past summer I was called 1 week after my interview, to start PIT 2 weeks later. OTS. The girls in HR are very warm, welcoming and professional btw.
Very True. Also I’m sure your SWG pic time was music to their ears.

Re: Jazz Approach

I’ve always said this would happen. It’s the next logical step for Canadian aviation. Most of the other countries you don’t have to “pay your dues” up North or work as a flight instructor. You simply finish your training and get on with an airline in a mentor ship role. Sit as a Second officer and ...

Re: Jazz Approach

So what? Go get a diploma. How much easier do you need it to be? It's 126K This would only be logical if you went straight from high school Imagine paying for living expenses on top of this, if you don't have rich parents you can't afford this First pay 40K for a degree Than go pay 126K plus let's ...

Re: Commuting at Jazz

Like the above poster said, almost any commute is possible. Make sure you add up the true total cost such as flights $500/month, crash pad $200-500/month, Uber/taxi/bus to crash pad $100/month. Mine comes to about $750/month. I did it partly because my base closed and I wanted to stay on my aircraft...

Re: Jazz Approach

Every generation has seen a benefit that the previous generation hasn’t seen. This is the best time to be alive in all of history. Let’s talk about aviation. I feel like most people I talk to aren’t interested in being a pilot. One of the reasons is the very high barrier for entry with accumulating ...

Spreading love to the above commenters. I log back into into avcan once a week and see some interesting comments. But after this reply I’m logging back off and going back to enjoying life.

Re: Regional Career

As for the regional career. My original post was asking who else on here decided to stay and for what reasons. I’m opening a dialogue that was missing on this forum. I'll bite and explain why I'm likely staying at a regional. For starters, I don't commute. I've done it and don't want to do it again...

Re: Regional Career

Most of these comments never added to the post. Just the usual avcanada bashing other users. (It’s easy to hide behind being anonymous). In any case, I never said regionals are better than manlike. Nor do I think mainline is better than regionals. What matters is the individual choices you make base...

There is no way your first priority in life is family or lifestyle. Your first youtube video was about how much money you made in one month, which was boosted as hell by the way.

The only way to have ‘career’ is to also have job security.

Ask yourself if you truly have that (30-45 years) at any regional airline.
There is no real job security in my observation. Your airline could go bankrupt, you could be on layed off.

Regional Career

Just had a thought come up the other day of staying at the regionals for the rest of my career. I understand the main debate of going to a mainline gig would be higher earnings in the long run and flying bigger aircraft. But my priority in life is in the following order. 1) Family 2) Health 3) Pay M...

Re: Entire application process timeline?

t the present time. 1000 hrs and 250 Multi is the minimum hiring TT according to HR.

If you are a part of the Jazz Pathways the minimum time doesn’t apply as you get in straight from college into any type of A/C.

Waiting 3-4 months is extremely long. Down south they tell you the news one week after the interview. My question is, why is no one following up with HR? If they tell you 6-8 to weeks and you haven’t heard at 10 weeks, I would shoot an email to see what the deal is no? Cdn I think most are afraid t...
