Course deferral rights are not restricted to Express pilots.

ANY pilot offered a PIT course at AC has the ability to defer up to 24 months with reserved seniority.

How about somebody just posts a lowdown of the phone interview instead of asking for PMs individually?

I'm guessing it's a pretty competitive round of interviews, so I can't imagine too many people wanting to go in blind then give the people behind them the upper hand of advanced knowledge. Further to that, I'm sure new hires aren't too interested for the most part in sharing that kind of company information and getting themselves in hot water. If you think this is truly anonymous, you're only kidding yourself.

This site is hilarious. I've never seen so many un-confident people when it comes to doing interviews and exams and wanting to get a shortcut.

Just suck it up and be yourself. You don't think AC knows what goes on here and that the questions would be posted?

Good luck to all.

Hello Aviators,

Dont be mistaken Mr 3Green its not about being un confident its about " Joindre l utile a l agréable ".

I understand the competition is tuff what i meant by play it CRM its after you guys secure your positions its obvious, im not in a hurry a got the PFO message.

All the best to all of you guys sincerely.

Well, we just crossed the six month mark. I am really hoping that AC will make good on their email they sent that I (we- all who received the email) can expect a telephone interview within the year....ends April 23/2017..... clock's ticking away! ;)

....and I (we- all who received the PFO email) hope the OTS job ad comes out again. I'm sure there's still a lot of individuals that far exceed the requirement (minus degree) waiting for a shot. I was offered an interview five years ago with half the hours and experience, but unfortunately I wasn't in a position to accept it. :smt017
