Re: Voyaguer airways

They are busy.....they just sent their first ex-"Jazz" Dash 8 100 across the pond last week headed for UN work in South Sudan. Would guess maybe 3-5 more of those ex Jazz Dash 8 machines are sitting on the ramp in North Bay waiting to be refurbished for a second career overseas, though not necessari...

Re: 2016 Course Dates and Positions

I tend to disagree - if I'm telling you something is solely a rumour and not a fact, then I expect you to be responsible enough about how you circumvent it. I can't take responsibility for you spreading rumours as facts. 9 times out of 10 I also ask whether what I've heard is true. Certainly don't ...

After reading various posts on the different forums, seems some are only hiring low timers, would this be due to the very low starting wages?

Re: ~ Sky Regional 2014 ~

I'd be amazed if they ever had a bond. They have a difficult time finding the right applicants already, a bond wouldn't help the situation. They do have a company policy, however, that you can't bid off a certain type for the first two years, or one year if you come type rated. For example, new hir...
