Re: Aviation Summer Co-op

Not sure if Kitchener (YKF) still has openings for summer students. I know that they took in summer students back in 2006, not sure if they've kept up the practice. C.R. in administration is a Georgian Aviation Management Grad, so that might help your chances. All the best in your studies James! :wi...

Re: Porter - YHZ Base

I believe almost all the FO's in YHZ were hired specifically for the base. When they first opened up the YOW & YHZ bases over 3 years ago, people were given the opportunity to move out east. Some people did, and the rest were hired in. Since then, as mentioned, there has been few instances of peopl...

Re: Porter - YHZ Base

saying there is about 80 employees there. Is that still accurate? 80 total employees between Flight Crew (30), Cabin Crew (30), Ramp, CSR's. Do all FO's start in Toronto? 98% of the time, new FO's are hired into the YTZ base. Porter currently has about 275 pilots across its 3 bases (YTZ, YOW, YHZ)....

Re: Supply and Demand of Commercial Pilots in Canada

I got my PPL as an Air Cadet. I often wonder how many pilots trained under the Air Cadet program kept on flying and how many became career pilots. I was also a Cadet that obtained my GPL, and PPL.

In an ideal world, the student should not have to worry about being screwed over. As a consumer I expect to get what I paid for. Granted, it doesn't mean to go in blindly and take it on faith alone.

Re: Fill Out The PTR !

If you are a student pay attention to what is getting entered in your PTR. Don't let your instructor fall behind, your book should be up to date at all times. When a page is completed the hours should be totaled and the page certified. Sadly the student should not have to watch over the instructor....

Wasaya runs the Caravans and Pilatus as a 703; Their Beech 1900's as 704; and Dash 8-100 & Hawkers as 705.

As for the WAT charts, Wasaya has contracted a provider to give them these charts. Revisions are monthly.

Charts are kept in the planes library for daily use.
