SKYLINK EXPRESS

#1 Post by Torresdenochea » Sun Apr 15, 2018 1:46 pm

Can anyone tell me what the current pay is for 1900 FO, schedule, number of days off, benefits, etc. This is for the Hamilton Base. I read previous threads, but they turn out to be a company bashing shitshow...

Thanks in advance

Lots of operators like Skylink (turboprop focused) are having a hard time filling seats.

Your best bet to get unbiased current pay information is to get on the horn with HR at Skylink. If you have any sort of real world experience (other than being a 250hr newb) I would imagine you could do some negotiating, otherwise anticipate a T4 in the 30k range as FO, 55k Captain.

It looks like a 1 year bond if you aren't current on the 1900C, and another 1 year if you upgrade within Skylink.

I know the routes finish off in Windsor and Sault Ste Marie out of Hamilton. I think it's supposed to be M-F, 3 days per week, but I wouldn't be surprised if you go for 5 days most weeks with pilots moving on to feeders.

Best of luck!

Thanks for the info. When you mean the routes finish in Windsor and Sault Ste Marie, you overnight there? I thought all flights return to Base at the end of the day.

Thanks again, hopefully they are paying better now, cause 30K is minimum wage.

Honestly - if you are serious and bracket their mins give HR or the Chief a call tomorrow and report back. I'm sure lots of prospective pilots would appreciate your insight.

I wouldn't be surprised if they've upped it to be competitive in this market. Everyone is selling themselves as career nowadays.

Cheers,

Good idea. Right now Im waiting on a few prospective jobs, so I might hold off on this gig. What I like about Skylink is that you seem to be home most nights which is nice in my case with a young family.

Agreed, if you live in the Hamilton area it's great. If you are commuting in might be a challenge (hours).

Check out Morningstar - same idea but with the C208 out of Pearson.

A few good charter jet gigs around - time off is a little unplanned but at the end of the year you usually have a lot of time with family.

If you are an individual who needs to make plans 3 months out without using vacay - bank on staying out of chartered management.
