Jobs for Pilots with 250 HRS In Northwestern Ontatio

Post by 5 And Below » Sun Jan 12, 2020 8:17 pm

Hi all,

I am currently working towards my CPL and IFR. I am graduating from a well-established flight program in Canada and wanting to find a job in NWO. I was considering Bearskin, Wasaya, Air Bravo or SkyCare. Would any of these companies hire with 250 hrs TT and allow you to get a PPC or at least work towards a flying position. Not sure in the bear would take such a low time pilot. Are there any other companies that would hire with such low time? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Wasaya does. Air Bravo probably does and Skyscare will take anybody.

Bearskin is the same company as Perimeter now, not sure how or if pilots can switch back and forth. However Perimeter has been taking 200hr pilots for quite a while.

Bearskin does as well, but only from certain programs I believe.

North Star Air.

Worth a shot. They have PC-12 and Baslers running out of Pickle and Red Lake. Elsewhere too.

Can anyone confirm whether companies looking for candidates with a CURRENT Group 1 IFR are looking for someone who is current on their 6/6/6, or is the expectation just that your still within the IPC?

i doubt anyone cares. your ppc training will revalidate your group 1 for a year anyways.

Some of the Baslers are swimming, skating and chopping down trees too. I wouldn't be betting too much on this company unless I had no other offers. 3 crashes in 2 years. How many more until their AOC is only good for toilet paper and you're looking for work again? Besides safety, I'd worry about job security as well.

Yes it will be taken care of (night too) on your PPC/ training. Just don't be like me and have your training in June so "night" doesn't start till 11 and only lasts 3 hours lol
