Re: Toilets near to Ramp for employees

Looks like there’s a wacky AME in YHZ. :rolleyes: The arbitrator concluded that the employer, an aerospace firm operating hangars at the Halifax airport, had just cause to terminate the employee because his colleagues could hear what he was doing, and it caused “embarrassment and distress” in the wo...

Re: Any chance we just lost our AC flow?

I view it as I don't have to change more than 0-3 time zones in a pairing. Usually 0. I can bid to be home every night. I'm not flying 12 hours at FL390 which isn't good for you. I do layovers mostly in Canada. I enjoy flying and average 12-14 flights on a pairing. Not 1 with autoland. :lol:

Re: Any chance we just lost our AC flow?

Even if you decide to stay at Jazz it's a pretty good gig after you get through the first few years. Decent pay. Great perdiems and benefits.

Re: Dash-8 writeoff in YYZ

I think the YYZ employee parking garage is more dangerous with all the mindless idiots driving through there Tokyo Drift style. Seriously though.... The fuel company changed names about 5 years ago and basically fired anyone who didn't want to keep working for $14/hour so this is the result. Room te...

Holy crap, watching that happen from the skipper’s seat must have been terrifying. (Pic #3) I saw pics of the inside. The CB panel and the steering tiller area is smashed pretty badly. They are lucky, it could have been much worse. Only a thin skin of aluminum and some wires between them and the fu...

I had a guy pick up his phone while pushing my plane back once. These companies want to pay minimum wage: They get minimum wage quality.

Sweet Jesus, How in the world do you collide with the front of the aircraft, swing around missing the prop and wing and hit the tail.

It ain't gonna change any time soon folks.

Sure they could up the pay to be nice but why would they? If they cut pa...

Are those just the posted numbers? I have not seen them anywhere myself.

Quite a few are only going to 60. As thats what they had signed up for when they started.
The retirement list is on the alpa.org site under the pension & retirement tab.

Re: Hanging your hat at Jazz?

Also although you don't actually move up on the list, there are many on long term disability due to an aging workforce. Some have been off for 20+ years and although are on the list, will never come back to the line.

Sunwing. If you go to WJ you might get “Swooped”. Plus you’ll get perpetually bumped down the list by the Encore folks. I don’t know what the time to a left seat at WJ would be but I bet it’s a very long time.

Re: Canada faces severe shortage of pilots and aircraft workers - Ottawa Citizen

I wouldn’t encourage anyone to get into this career nowadays. Airline managements have it down to a science as to keep wages as low as possible for as long as possible as mentioned in above posts. Graduate. Come to Jazz or Encore. Make nothing for a few years. Get an upgrade and a taste of better pa...

What’s the starting wage for a Clamp pilot. Are they part of the one list or do those damn Encore pilots Swoop in ahead of them?
