I said I'm here to dispell rumours about the reputation from a few years ago things are improving I didn't say work conditions were one of them yet we are working on that. We are no longer forced to fly personally I never was but some people were those days are over. With the promise from the company once October roles around we should get a 6/5 schedule as long as no one else leaves. The winter schedule apparently has really changed as well. I can't comment on this as it hasn't happened yet. They are doing things to try and shorten up the day I'm not saying it's not the companies fault for things but it also has a large deal with we are a commuter company we have to fly at certain times so we can bring passengers from smaller airports so they can connect on to the big guys! For some reason people tend to overlook that! We are actively looking at trying to make this place better! I didn't say everything is going to change over in one night these things take time. Criticize all you want as an outsider, that's fine paint me with the I have no idea what we are looking for your a horrible representative for the CBA believe what you want...

Do you think the wall of shame will make a return this winter? Or did it get SMS'd enough to disappear?

For outsiders, the "Wall of Shame" was a white board in the dispatch office that listed the names of crew and how much money they wasted on de-icing each month. A running tally of the big spenders........

It was real, and it did get SMS'd, at least twice that I saw.

Of course, if you didn't spend, your name didn't go up there.

Where did I put that email from TSB yesterday regarding de-ice ops and the Westwind crash? That reminds me, I should probably start filling that survey in.......

I'd make it a personal goal to be on top of that board.

Makes Transport's job easy too. All they need to do is read a few names at the bottom, then hang out at the gate when those crews are scheduled to fly.

Everyone says that, but reality is, no one actually likes getting yelled and sworn at by their boss(es). It makes for a toxic work environment. So the border line sprays stop happening with most people, because, well, it's easier not to be in shit with management. For some still, most sprays stopped happening. And management doesn't need to whip everyone into shape, they just need most people to be afraid. That's how they run the joint.

You have to keep in mind that most people that work at EVAS aren't veterans of the profession. They are new, trying to make a good impression on their employer. They are worried about things like a reference for the PML, or in some cases losing their work visas and being booted out of Canada, or having to repay a $20,000 bond if they get fired. The senior guys that choose to be there, for their own reasons, govern themselves accordingly. They are pretty much untouchable anyway. Without those guys anchoring that place down EVAS goes the way of the dodo.

That's what is so dangerous at EVAS. They have an inordinate amount of leverage on a good portion of their employees. It makes standing up to them that much more difficult.

If I got yelled at for taking a spray, then I'd quit, and see them in court for the bond. Could always just cancel the flight too if glycol is too expensive. But I'm also not chasing the giant red carrot, and have no intention of working at EVAS

The thing people again leave out is that cargo isn't supposed to spray. They have a northern operation type of deal where they have piss packs because cargo isn't covered under our contractor! Now that being said with our current stance with equipment I would also spray!

Yes they are suppose to spray! That's the point. Cold type 1 is useless when precipitation is accumulating. And you can't spray a tail of a 1900 with a garden sprayer. Oh right...... EVAS provides a ladder to use in a snowstorm on a slippery ramp. Can't possibly see what could go wrong there.

EVAS is too damn cheap to pay for professional spray services on their cargo run! It's just two crew members and an bunch of boxes after all.

How did the "Northern Type Operation" work out for Westwind?

They know. Multiple current and former employees have filed complaints. Their response is usually the same. They won't prosecute on witness testimony alone. They need to catch them in the act. I have noticed they have stepped up enforcement a bit on EVAS and done a couple ramp checks in the last year. I know people have been served as a result.

While I have EVASYHZCAPTAIN's attention I have another question.....100% serious question.....

How do you feel about EVAS booking charters on empty AC flights like they did twice last winter to Sydney? AC picked up the tab for an empty aircraft swap, fuel, de-ice in YQY, and the private charter got charged full price too!!!!! All on an AC flight number. Are you morally okay with flying a plane that is literally defrauding AC, the company for which you want to get a PML interview with one day?

Sounds like a company that wants to do right by the world, they even bite the hand that feeds them. If they steal from AC their only real customer, how do you expect them to be honest with their employees?

Wow this is disheartening. I had no illusions that EVAS was a great place to spend your career, but I figured a decent regional to build time at. Glad that they only gave me a quick email to ask if my old instructor rating was still valid and when I said no, never replied again.

Nothing wrong with "cargo isn't supposed to spray", but they better not be expecting the flight to depart either. I don't mind pushing the plane back in the hangar and going for coffee while waiting for weather to improve and the accumulated ice to melt.

It might help if you look at the whole post I said it was only cargo not that it made a difference I also said I would spray as well right now as we don't have the correct methods right now. I meant they aren't supposed to be sprayed yes the pilots should still spray the plane themselves they weren't supposed to be professionally sprayed but as I already said a few times with the practices we have in place I to would take the spray because I don't agree with our current arrangements.

This is a whole separate issue which I don't agree with I didnt participate in it either. It's not my job as I'm not management I have very little information. That being said I know for a fact we have a couple aircraft that arnt air Canada funded I can't say with certainty that those were the aircraft used.

No, there were 100% AC funded flights doing the tail swap between Gander and Halifax (Like the do daily). Ask one of your long time Captains at YHZ. It's up for everyone to see on the YQY Facebook page! Opps!

I'll join in and say that this post did nothing but make EVAS look worse for us that had never worked there or had anything to do with it. They have a "Wall of Shame" for those captains that "waste money on de-icing?" Unreal. Does AC know about this? Does TC? I'd record every conversation with the bosses. I'd walk in, say "By the way, I'm recording this, so if you don't want to have this conversation recorded, then we're not having this conversation. See ya!"

then they just find another reason to can you. have voice recorder on your phone" mine records all calls then asks if you want to save it after" kind of like firing the F/O for SMS'ing the CP for the FOGO run.

I hate to say it but in this industry management will never have your back, they will simply say that you were PIC and wash there hands

I used to work at EVAS but got fired for writing a safety report. Never changed. Never will. TC does care if you pressure them enough. I got the enforcement Division involved and the company and DFO was fined. Keep your records, record conversations and you'll help peck away at these disgusting people.

It is September... but no time line was actually given it was when we had 10 captains in yhz. We are there just waiting on sim completion for the captains. We should have it next schedule dependent on people staying. :)

Haha yes I know its September, just asking as you tend to get the rosters before the end of the month.

Thanks for the info though. Would that just be for Captains or FO too? 6 on 5 off would be a nice schedule.

First officers I believe will be 6 and 4 as it motivates first officers to become captains. However I'm not 100% certain as there were talks of 6/5 for everyone. We received half of Octobers schedule and will be receiving the next one for Oct/ part of November in a few weeks. There have been many positive things said for this schedule coming up but we will have to see what actually gets released.

I wouldn't be motivated to become a captain at a spot that didn't reward me for my hard work at any position.

How can captains get different schedules than fos? That's the first I've ever heard of this in aviation.

Why isn't AC sub leasing you AAV any more could it be due to converting it to cargo, and using the desert airplanes without a Lav instead

https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/newfound ... -1.2649342

Or fudging flightplans using long range cruisefuel flows, but high speed cruise groundspeeds, allowing a bigger load on the yyr trips.
