Re: Caravan PPC or Bearskin FO?

My vote is Bearskin. I had the same choice a few years back and chose the PIC time, it was good for the short term but I always wondered where I would be had I taken the metro job.

Whats the deal with the 2 Sunwing job postings???

Is this an attempt to skirt the temporary workers program?

Or is this a genuine attempt of Sunwing looking for ( Canadaian) non 737NG type rated pilots looking for work? ( not that I'm holding my breath)

Re: 2013 Ground Schools

For someone who leaves Jazz early, do they get any money back from the pension contributions they have made? I have never been in a defined benefit plan so just curious how that works for you guys.

thanks

Re: Encore WACON released and surprise, it sucks

Not to go of on to big a tangent but In regards to the government treating airports like cash cows therefore driving passengers south, while yet At the same time subsidizing industries like the auto sector so that those "valued" employees can continue to earn fat paychecks is beyond me.

Re: Training bond NOT tax deductible !?!

Just to clarify, Did you have to pay out a bond in order to leave your employer or did you pay the bond at the beginning and remain employed with the employer while they paid it out over a certain period of time. I was always under the impression that if you walked away from a bond and paid it out i...
