Re: From Float flying to Airlines?

Do what you want to do. I loved my time flying floats and wouldn't trade it, BUT if you are say 28-30+ and your goal is the airlines if you can find a MIFR job now that would be more ideal for career progression. But you'll miss out on some good fun flying. Flying a Navajo around or PC12 will still ...

Re: Swoop Terrain Warning

ATC will give you a direct, off airway, clearance below sector altitudes. Not in Canada, as per the NavCanada MANOPs and AIC 19/17. http://www.navcanada.ca/EN/products-and-services/Documents/AIP/Current/part_5_aic/5aic_eng_2017_19.pdf#top I don't read ATC manuals, but I know what my responsibility ...

If WestJet is so great why do most of your pilots have applications in at Air Canada?

Re: New TC Cannabis rules

As expected, it will take time before the studies are done and we know more about impairment. 28 days is likely not the final outcome, it will be much less. But until we have the data, they are being extra conservative with the rules. I expect within 10 years we'll be down to an hours/days limit. An...

Re: Shortage of Military pilots

Who cares about the 20-30 year olds being hired? I really don't understand why these arguments keep being brought up. Yes, you will never be a 777 or 787 Captain. But in a few years you can have a VERY cushy job as a 777/787 FO, or a mid list NB CA and make well over $200,000 a year working a decent...

It is heavier on the INRAT exam side of things than the IFR flying side or at least that is what I felt sitting in there back in 2016.

I took it years ago, took the exam a few days after and nearly aced it. If it's anything close to the same yes it's worth it.

Honestly just do it on your own. Go to a few schools and sit down with them and tell them you are there to pound through everything and want to have somewhat of "syllabus.." I know Pro IFR, Harv's and PFC all do this for private students. Brampton probably does as well. Don't go in blind. Go in with...

Re: Typical New Hire RP Schedule.

What would the average 5 - 10 year RP make? I don't know why you would want to hold such position with that seniority, but the lifestyle would be amazing. 5 is about 100k. Goes up modestly from there but not at the same rates as FO jumps. You could pretty easily make 150k if you were senior, did 3 ...

Re: Typical New Hire RP Schedule.

If you are on flat pay and senior on your position can you just bid reserve and pass on everything? If you hold a block on flat pay are you essentially just working for per diems and maybe the chance of some overtime? Yes you can pass on everything. But if you are reserve and pass, you won't be get...

Watch what you wish for. The EU regs aren’t much better then Canada. And it takes way more time to figure out. Shorter days also lead to more days worked and less days off.
