Re: Porter Airlines YQT Base - We are hiring!

^ Dude, if I could tell the future, I'd be buying lottery tickets and picking stocks.. Somewhere in here, there's a thread on retirement #s; that will tell the tale, IMO. Once the hiring at the top end stops, then everything else will contract, and we'll be back to the days of two years on the ramp....

Re: Missing airplane on flight from Penticton to Edmonton

And while we're on the subject, is there some reason simple risk management principles for PPL's can't be taught during the syllabus? Yes the herd will tell me it is taught. I say most do a piss poor job on this principle, somewhere between the teaching and the learning. Weather knowledge too. Thin...

Re: Porter Airlines YQT Base - We are hiring!

A bit off topic but will this pilot hiring frenzy at places like porter and other regionals in canada continue for another year or two? No - it'll all be over on Tuesday, July 17, 2018 at 1100GMT. If you're not on at Air Canada by then, well, it's rubber dog sh!t out of Hong Kong for the rest of yo...

Retirement Projections?

Anyone got any accurate numbers for retirements coming up over the enxt 1,3,5,10 years or so at the big 3 (WJ, AC, Jazz), please?

I've heard ~350 for AC alone next year, and then ~1500 over the next decade..

Are those numbers accurate?

Re: Dellen Millard trial

As far as Millard is concerned: fair trial, and then let him rot. I'm sure you mean... fair trial, then let him serve his lawfully imposed sentence for the other crimes, along with whatever penalty is imposed for this one, should he be convicted. Don't you? Yes.

Re: Pilot Seniority Porting

The way I read it, is a pilot at Jazz who is hired at Jazz on Oct 13 will be forever junior to a Bearskin pilot hired at Bearskin on Oct 12, once that BS pilot 'flows' over to Jazz. So, could you sit at BS for 5 years, go to JZ, and immediately go LHS, assuming that your 'DOH' can hold that? I'd ima...

One of the biggest pothead friends i had when i was growing up is now comfortably in the left seat at aircanada...so i dont think that it will affect your career that much. you'll find, as you get into flying that most of us are pretty conservative though, so you might want to put down the bong.
