Will Porter hire again after May 2019

Post by Dingaling » Tue Apr 02, 2019 2:43 pm

Hi everyone,
Just a quick question. I know April and May have ground schools running for new hires but does anyone have an idea if Porter will continue running courses throughout the year?
Any info would be appreciated 😉

With attrition forecasted at 6 per month (and the bulk in the spring (Apr-May-Jun), I'd say more than likely.

As long as Mainline (AC, WestJet) is hiring, the will be some movement from Porter. Sunwing and Transat are also places pilot transition too.

Best is to contact Julie (Assistant Chief Pilot - Recruitment), and/or attend the open house that regularly occur and ask those questions.

Hey Grey Wolf.... thanks for the response👍🏻
The movement is crazy right now so there seems to be light at the end of the tunnel. Again thank you 🙏🏽

Yes, it would be terrible for someone to have to spend their 800th hour living outside the centre of the universe. The horrors!

A friend got hired September at Porter and has just left for another jet job literally 6 months later.
There is movement and also we have to c wat air Georgian has up their sleeves. They r running gs for CRJs and have hired under 1000 hrs.
I’m really not 100% maybe Julie May shed some light and give some hope ?

Why would your friend move from Porter? Did he go to another airline, or corporate?
