State of things in Alberta.

#1 Post by McKinley » Fri Dec 02, 2016 5:10 pm

Hi,

I'm wondering how things are in Alberta. Are things insanely slow still? Specifically, I'm wondering about :

Northern Caribou
Sunwest Av
R1

I have a Dash Rating, King air 350 rating.

Thx

Watch this site for a while, zoom in on Alberta and it will tell you who is flying (has work) and who doesn't...

It's picking up, but still slow. With oil creeping up over fifty dollars per barrel, oil patch activity is slowly coming back to life. More so in Saskatchewan, though.

They all seem to be airlines or say "no callsign" is there a trick to it?

Thought I'd bump up this thread, wondering if the work situation has improved in Alberta for the Sunwests, North Cariboo's and R1s...

Is anyone busy there these days ?

I doubt any are busy like 3 years ago, but I'm quite sure they are all struggling to find qualified pilots due to airline hiring.
