Re: Air Canada Pool

FlightOps is currently not planning any groundschools following November. There will be hiring as people choose to retire and groundschools in the new year but no plan yet on dates. Equipment and base will always be unknown until just after the last bid before the class.

Re: Air Canada Pool

Is it possible that people in the NOV 12 course would be bidding straight into the LCC.....Could a new hire potentially hold a 767 FO position?? You could possibly bid on, and get a 777 Captain position also. Not likely, but possible. Remember that you are behind a whole whack of EMJ FO's that are ...

Re: New Contract thread

The EMJ is not going to the LCC, just outside of scope (outside ACPA/Mainline). Those jobs are protected by the contract. A319/767 jobs at LCC will be flown by ACPA pilots who keep their mainline seniority number, and can bid in and out of LCC, almost as they would to any other aircraft at mainline....

Re: Air Canada Interviews

No, I wouldn't count on the second language thing even coming up. Like oldone said, good luck to the applicants, it really is not the same airline we heard about in flight school.

New contract info out on Monday. Get your helmet and mouth guard, it ain't gonna be pretty.

Re: Air Canada sells some B767s

Old 200's from the dessert. No change in the active fleet. Probably to get cash for the recently agreed on 777's.

Re: AC Starting Salary

Yes. There was a small increase proposed on TA1, however the new hire flat pay would have been extended from 2 to 4 years, with year 3 and 4 having lower pay than what could be expected on the old contact under formula pay. This is one of many things that still need to improve in any new contact.

Re: Air Canada Interviews

I wouldn't read too much into the application disappearing. This happens occasionally as it is edited or renewed etc. Still expect 20 per course per month, with the next course on the first week or March. Lots of spots to fill still. Good luck.

Re: YVR Commute

Did the commute for a year as a brand new RP. Very excited to get back to Vancouver though. I have to say it can be done, just have to be prepared with a couple options, like extra flights, travel a day early, and keep those jump seat coupons well stocked. When things fall apart and get busy at AC, ...

Re: Air Canada Interviews

The next aircraft courses are 22nd Aug (8 slots), and 05 Sep (6 slots). Therefore I bet there will be one or two PIT courses starting between the 8th and 22nd of Aug. Unless there are 26 people showing up next Monday :) .

Re: Air Canada Interviews

That's good news!
Which aircraft/bases?
Yup, busy. Most RP's on the 767 have 6 overseas pairings in June (Yes, that's more work than the proposed LCC).

The Equipment bid shows the ability to hire 56 new pilots. I would expect the usual, only YYZ positions, on the EMJ and RP.
