One of the best companies I've ever had the privilege of working for. Good equipment and some of the best people in the industry. Good luck in the process.

I am curious as to what the pay is like at this company? I've heard very good things about them but heard interesting things about their payscale. Can someone in the know PM me?

Thanks!

Depending on experience. Mid 60's for king airs, high 60's for 1900, and mid 70's for dash.

That is for PIC I'm assuming? Do the pay scales increase each year?

Also, do they have passes with any airlines?

Typically there are raises each year 2k or so per year. My info is old though. Great company, I worked there for 5 years and I still miss people I worked with. CP even sent me a thank you card for canceling a flight once, not something I've ever experienced before .... Or since :)


One thing I should mention, NCA is a great place to go to as a captain and can be a long frustrating wait as an FO looking for command. Unless you have some PIC you may get pigeon holed by various oil company Requirments....not saying you won't get an upgrade eventually it just may be a longer wait that elsewhere...

Also, no passes....

Cheers and good luck

+1, to Steve's info.

Make sure you read over the Contrail requirements and see where you are for time and see whether you meet them. You could find yourself stuck for a while if you don't have the time. PIC is gold for Contrail!

Contrail charts are at the top of this forum if you need them. Also more info in the "Salary" section.

Thanks guys!

I have about 1000 turbine mpic. More then half of that is +12.5 time. So that will help I imagine. Calgary is a great city and I would be happy to spend a few years there working for an outstanding company such as NCA.

Good luck

Just heads up, NCA likes to put over qualified people in their positions, regardless of contrails. It might have to do with Shell etc which are higher than contrails. You may not get what you were aiming for and expect the bait and switch routine.

There are quite a few companies that are higher than Contrails. Shell, Imperial, Conoco....

They don't put overqualified people in the positions for shits and giggles, they're there because they need them!

Thanks! That would be my goal/plan, to spend a several year stint with a company like this. I'm in no rush to move too fast.

+1 Rayban & Whitey.

Definitely one of the better outfits out there. Still miss it to this day. Not many places operators out there that will invite you and a dozen workmates to an all inclusive weekend on the owners houseboat. Just for poops 'n gigs.

Some of the finest pilots that I have had the privilege of working with.

Good company, great people. I sure do miss the Cariboo party machine. But man did they suck at managed aircraft.

Hasn't been a base yet, just a couple flights a week with the Dash 8.

Things are changing though.....

Yea I heard they're getting Q400s. Those Q400 might come from Augsburg Airways. They ceased operation on 31st of October after their contract concluded with Lufthansa.
