Tintina Air info

#1 Post by RocksAndProps » Sun Jan 14, 2018 9:03 am

They've posted a few ads in the past few days for DHC-2 on floats and wheels, and pretty well every one of their aircraft.

Does anyone have current info about the working conditions? Any negative things to say? I gather they're a reasonably new company.

Tintina is a great company to work for. Dave (the owner) is a great guy who treats everyone with respect. If Bush flying is your thing, it’s probably hard to beat Tintina.

Tintina used to operate a jet for us in Whitehorse with a gravel kit. I had the good fortune to provide line indoc to a new captain spending parts of a few weeks in Whitehorse, doing some of the most fun flying I’ve ever done. Unfortunately that airplane was sold to new owners in Africa. They are Great people at tintina and Whitehorse is a spectacular place....in the summer. Can’t say I liked it much when I was there in February.

Not a new company by any means.

All the pilots I have met there are super friendly. Haven't met the owner but have heard only good things. The flying in the Yukon is amazing. You work hard but if you like flying and you don't mind long days it would be a fantastic job. Whitehorse has most of the stuff you'd find in a big city while still being small. If you want to live in the North, I would say Whitehorse is the place to be. IMHO.
