For those of you waiting for information with regards to AirSprint's current openings and hiring schedule, I can provide the following information.
Calgary based positions: We have hired 2 CJ series First Officers to start with us in late November. We anticipate further openings in the near future and will be continuing to arrange a second set of interviews for the coming weeks.
Toronto/Montreal based positions: We are currently reviewing resumes and will be putting calls out shortly to arrange interviews for the week of Nov 14th. There is currently one Captain Position, and one First Officer position on the table, with anticipation of more in the near future.
We will be interviewing for both the positions that are currently open and to increase the pilot pool for future positions.
As usual we have received quite a large amount of resumes and with all the excellent candidates it makes the selection process rather difficult. So if you don't get a call please keep applying and we will hopefully get to you soon. I will leave my email address at the bottom for any inquires or questions, but please use the firstname.lastname@example.org email address for sending in resumes and applications.

This sounds like a really good company to work for, any jobs going for engineers?
How many engineers are at Calgary? Do they have a shift system?
Thanks in advance!
We have 6 AMEs and 2 apprentices based in Calgary.
We are a 1 minute walk from SAIT (right next door) so feel free to stop by.ITSKFC wrote:Thanks James,
I had a look at your website before, very informative and saw the pay structure.
I'll wait till July when I arrive in Calgary to inquire more.
The company can relocate someone but it is not a common practice. In this case, there is a moving allowance provided. If people move, it is generally because they want to be at another base long term, or a promotion is available at a different base. I think the last time we changed someone's base was when we moved our base from Ottawa to Montreal, and from Kitchener to Toronto. I don't expect that we will be moving bases again and if I remember correctly, nobody moved because they were still within the 90 minute report time.CAL wrote:quick question
If you get hired into a base can they relocate as needed?
I am assuming yes which is part of the job but are these costs covered if they move you?
It really is a combination. Attitude is extremely important and is the one area (of the three mentioned) where you can be disqualified from selection. Flight experience (assuming you meet a minimum level) and education are important but there is more flexibility. To answer your question best, if you have two pilots who have similar attitudes and flight experience, the one with the additional education will probably get selected first. That is an overly simple way of looking at it though as you rarely find two people who are really that similar where you do not have a preference.Speedalive wrote:How much is post secondary education valued as opposed to flight experience and attitude when it comes to selecting pilot candidates? This place seems like such an amazing place to work (and maybe even to make a career out of..).
Hope this helps.
Thanks for the quick reply. That's fair enough!AirSprint HR wrote:It really is a combination.
