1.) YWG: mostly skeds, some freight flying out of YTH or YRT. Averages have been around 80-90 credits per month.
YTH: Mostly freight, half Manitoba, half Arctic freight. Some skeds up to Rankin. New hires will most likely be based in YTH.

2.)yes

3.) Anywhere from 3 to 12. You will only do 12 if you want to do 12. Some overnights in YTH for YWG pilots.

4.) HAHAHAHa.... People really like it here. Maybe 5-7 years for YWG, 4-6 for YTH.

5.) Up and down. People don't like change. Lots of changes going on right now. Morale is low right now, but I could see things getting better soon. Still one of the best paying regionals around.

6.) Per diems around $6000-$10,000/year.
Base salary around $45000 to start, but that's based on minimums. It's easy to make 10 credits above minimums every month.

7.) A bunch of people have left for other jobs lately, so it's a possibility. They seem to hire in the second quarter. 1000 hrs with ATPL exams written seems to be a good starting point. They did hire a guy with 800 hrs last year, and they hired a few instructors lately, so it's not a firm number, but it's a starting point.

They're getting rid of the jets and replacing them with more ATRs. Don't know when that's happening but a buddy who works there said that's the plan.

Pretty sure the 72's are the machines coming over from summit. Those guys seem to be into everyone's business.
