I might have missed something here fellas...

I thought all the pilot positions at the LCC are supposed to be filled internally from the ACPA seniority lists. Is this not the case???

Thanks! :?

The Canjet pay is pretty terrible.

I don't know how ACPA figures into all this, especially if Skyservice will be running the show. I'm just going by what I heard from a former Canjet guy.

As usual in aviation, believe nothing what hear and only half of what you see.

I thought the LCC was gonna be AC guys. Their new LCC pay scales are for the 767 and 320, nothing mentioned about 737's.

Well I hate to burst everyone's bubble but this has nothing to do with the LCC or for that matter anything with AC, but what it does have everything to do with is TC, pilots have been hired, training has begun and more to come in due time :)

And the hilarious thing is that after they get set up they'll be bringing in British contract pilots for the season.

Russ doesn't ever use his own cash!
If you know anything about his ventures, you will see that it is always someone else's money and as a result, no-risk to himself.
i.e. Skyservice was funded by the various tour operators and Sky Regional funded by AC. I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if this new start up has Robbie Goldberg(Conquest), Jonathan Carroll(Itravel2000) or Michael Friisdahl (Sunquest) behind it.
An after-note...
looks like AC just announced that Friisdahl has been hired to run the LCC.

Has been a little quiet on the 737 front....

So:
his current interest is Skyregional..........amongst other things ....
It appears my initial statement was correct (in light of current events). And that 737 doesn't appear to have moved much...


Yuup (thanks Dave Hester).

I see C-GBKI is still sitting on the Skyservice ramp at YYZ. As far as I can tell all it's done all winter is get towed between the hangar and the ramp ? Interesting business model, I wonder what sort of lease rate they are paying for the thing ? Does anyone know what the real deal is with this B737 ?

Airplanes are cheap. Flying them is expensive.

I've put my reading glasses back on and I am eagerly awaiting the appearance of the machine either on the apron or as a flightaware radar image (damn now they will probably block that too....).

I notice the plane outside most days (it's hard to miss with all the bizjets and Dash 8s on the ramp) however Flightaware shows it occasionally going for a quick flight around YYZ. I've never seen it airborne so I'm not sure otherwise. Perhaps another airline is considering scooping it up (Westjet? Canjet? Transat?).

I think you'll find the aircraft is being returned to Europe very soon. As for AeroBee? My guess is that it was part of the Virgin Pacific deal that Air Canada was participating in until they postponed things in November.
