Ramp times are similar but perimeter has been hiring direct for medevac positions. Pay is about ten grand more on scheds and about twenty grand more if you were hired as a first officer at perimeter. Captain upgrades are around 12-18 months or about 1500tt. You are scheduled 16 days a month. You get paid overtime instead of days off in lieu of. Some prefer days off in lieu but days off in lieu don’t exactly pay the bills. Unlimited sick days with pay. Jump seat privileges on all the Canadian carriers. You sign a one year bond pro rated for the ppc and aren’t bonded when you go left seat. They have proper de-icing equipment at all of their scheduled destinations. The training department and the line indoc guys I have flown with are second to none. If I were to lose my current job I would head back to Perimeter before I would fly for any regional.
