I like the part that states "As Principle Pilot you'll be flying 8 hours a day 5 days a week." Nothing like getting that 2000 hours a year!

The website reads like it was dictated with Google voice in a noisy room.
I feel like it would make a very memorable episode of Dragon's Den, up there with the guy who wanted to rent out business offices for people to live in from 7pm to 7am.

I think you mean a "G for". Yes, that's what it says in there. Clearly a much more valuable type!

What's a G for? I dunno, what's it for?

Looks like a high school project he took to far by posting a Job Ad on PCC.

if you google the address https://www.google.com/maps/place/3733+ ... b3ad8a88f3

Hardly looks like a corporate office of an airline venture (ok maybe it does), probably priced at few mil in Vancouver though.


you could skype with him at "rockeyracoon"

Or maybe Mr. Roy Kerwood sold his picture he took of John and Yoko in bed for 265 mil and bought one hell of a G-IV..............

Where is the link to the PCC page? I couldn't find it...

On a positive note, I like the "Box #2 text" and the "To date we have [entry-count] Bookings" on the website :lol: .

This might work, it's under Job Postings for Canada.
https://www.pilotcareercentre.com/Searc ... n/2/Canada

Can't believe he would actually post "Job" ads.

Oh, I see it now... he's also looking for a Chief Pilot who can "create schedules and plan the flight operations for a twice daily Vancouver Toronto flight."

Seems legit. I really should apply and see what happens. I have no "notes" on my licence haha.

I like the effort placed to put the "photo-shopped" Canada flag on the nose, while not removing the US Flag on the tail.....

Air Sprint will buy him out, I'm not sure they can handle competition of any type.

Maybe the answer lies in the actual meaning of the company name......

Shangri-La is a fictional place described in the 1933 novel Lost Horizon by British author James Hilton
