What does the straight time mean? Salary/1200?
Straight time is the salary in the above grid divided by 1200 to obtain an hourly rate.

84 hrs / month are included in the salary rate. If you work 110 (typical at EVAS) you get paid...... your monthly salary/12 + your salary/1200x26.

First year captain working 110hrs per month would get $73,548/year gross based on a typical EVAS schedule with no picking up shifts.

I had been told 78K for Sunwest, but maybe I was talking to the wrong people. I don't think any of them are still there so...maybe that's a "probation rate" or something :lol:

Or you could live a 3-hours drive away in YYT and make $80k/year flying 850 hours a year as a Dash captain...

Or for the YHZ based, stay YHZ based and make $70k/year flying 3 days a week as a 1900 captain...

Terrible, don't know how everyone hasn't left yet.

If you do the math for FO's it's much worse. Based in duty hours you make $16/hr. You can literally do just about any other job on the planet and make more money.

That's 110 flight hours a month? And only making $73,500?

With a work schedule like that you won't have any time to spend money, so no point paying anything.

These proposed conditions are truly horrific - and this is supposed to be an improvement over what the EVAS pilots have now?

But, you could save up your money and then transfer to a bigger airline once you pack in some hours. You'll be sipping coconuts with your buddies in no time! :wink:

My uncle likes to remind me that a good plumber can make loads more. But, you're covered in crap and you don't get to fly planes...
It's a choice. I love flying, but if I wasn't getting paid what I wanted I'd polish up my resume (or do whatever work I need to do to get it looking "polished") and start shopping.

Applied for Captain’s position a month ago but still no reply.

Can anybody assist in further steps?

P.S. Now on my way to get TCCA ATPL on basis of oversea license. Planning to apply through Atlantic Immigration Pilot.

Read this whole thread and decide if EVAS is worth your time.

My advice, get the Canadian ATPL, get the right to work in Canada, THEN apply to companies other than EVAS.

Right to work in Canada is the biggest issue. So Atlantic Canada Immigration Pilot is a real tool to get it.

As far as I know there is no other Airline which offers participation in such program...

Thats because no other airline is as shitty as EVAS. The fact they have that program, with a Halifax base should literally tell you every thing you need to know about them.

EVAS is the GGN of the maritimes.

Hopefully it will meet the same fate.
