Corporate gig in Red Deer, AB

#1 Post by Rightseatdriver » Tue Nov 07, 2017 10:43 am

"Minimum TT 5000 hours, PIC 4000, Multi IFR 1000"

Am I applying for a king air/Navajo job or to be a direct Boeing 777 captain?!! :rolleyes: :| :lol:

Good minimums there, Jill. You should find someone in absolutely no time to fly your C90 out of Red Deer.

Mostly unrelated, But We are less than 2 years removed from that being a reasonable requirement that a corporate department could expect to attain.
My mind is blown by how much times have changed.

If it paid the right amount, the equipment shouldn't matter too much. With those hours, I'd expect nicely into 6 figures, maybe a little more because it sounds like the schedule sucks. "Must be able to work flexible hours on a full-time basis and able to accommodate a regular flight schedule....Overnight, weekend and extended stay travel will be required"

Two pilots and four planes? Enjoy your days off... those are the ones you waited within one hour of the airport dead sober with the cellphone on but didn’t go flying. Can’t even get a maintenance day off with that staffing.

Hard pass.

How can a company request such high hours now a days? 5000 hours TT will indeed get you a direct entry on many different types of aircraft much nicer, newer along with better pay and a predictable schedule that you can still live a somewhat normal life with your family. Is it just that Jill, the company representative is out of touch with this current pilot shortage or could it be that the company has such high insurance premiums that they don't want to pay insurance premiums for lower times guys who inevitably ARE looking to fly Navajo's and King Air 90s.
