Chartright YYC

#1 Post by username here » Fri Oct 23, 2015 3:46 pm

I was on the John Hopkinson website recently, and noticed that most of Chartrights YYC based aircraft are for sale.
How are things there? I'm assuming they had a hard time breaking into the YYC market?

Asked a friend who works there,"one is for sale because they've upgrade to an XLS and the rest of those ultras on there are part of the group he bought for resale, never flew out of YYC".

Any one know why Chartright had a job posting for a Challenger 300 Captain based in YQR about three weeks ago and then suddenly a week ago Aurora is posting for the same job in YQR? And then Aurora re-posted another Challenger 300 position for a Captain and an FO but based in YEG? Did Chartright loose a contract in YQR that was picked up by Aurora??

Not sure Chartright can get pilots with the sub industry standard pay they offer.

No slander in that statement. Pay for pilots could definitely go up. Heard of a few guys turning down the job because the money was low.

About 4 years ago - I recall $50k for a starter FO position - i didn't think that was too shabby at all - has that gotten worse or does everyone just have high standards at CR:) - how are things looking there these days? Steady she goes?

Who really has the biggest market share of the corporate flying now in Canada - Chartright?

I guess that depends on what the F.O position was for?

A king Air - sure sounds great, A Challenger- ouch!

From the people I know there, the company as a whole is fine, no real worse or better than an other management company, but the pay has been stagnant for the last 5 years in fact some aircraft start wages have even dropped. At the same time the cost of living has gone up by nearly 10% so really the pay has dropped significantly in real terms.

I did confirm with them that they don't get an statutory holidays, which I find a little strange. How do they get around this?
