Actually, come to think of it... I've seen some of the Pax on Borek, and maybe I'll pass :?

Who else in Canada runs Bandits? The Skyward guys' PPC's would be way past the renewal stage.
Is this really a Borek post? They could train any King Air driver, in a weekend. But, who'd leave a King Air for a Bandit?

How much would a PPC on a Bandit cost me?
I think the ROI would be worthwhile, just to get on with a good company.


:D PSYCH! :D


Hadja goin' for a second there...

None of the PPC Buyers know what ROI means, so I guess we're safe ;)

Pasco hasn't flown a Bandit in a almost a year. They sold em all off. There's some companies out east that run the E110 I think.

Go Guns thanks for the update. I talked to a buddy of mine out there about a year ago and he didnt mention they were sellin off the Bandits. I agree, good ol birds! We had one at Sowind that ended tragically but was a good aircraft.
Fly safe all, Doc, its on its way thanks bud!
Cheers

FWIW ...

Any employer that asks for a current PPC shouldn't mind when their'd PPC'd employees walk out the door for a better job, because that's precisely what they are asking their future employees to do.

With bonds coming out the wazzoo at KB I've gotta ask, will they bond the incoming pilot? Or will they just start handing out vacation pay immediately? Wait, KB doesn't do vacation pay anymore......
PS-better bring your own uniform and plates from your old job too or you'll end up having to buy them yourself.

Actually as far as KBA goes, an E110 PPC is a pretty good one to have. In the summer one is in YEV and the other is in YCB so your 3 weeks out are time off. You just have to make sure they don't stick you with a 100 PPC and use you on your days out. In the winter, the YEV one comes south to YXD so you are working your time out.

As for comparing to the Beeches, it's on par with the 90, 99, 100 grouping at about 600 hours a year give or take a few. The 100,200 grouping only flies about 300 hours a years unless you meet contrail and then your time out isn't time off at all.

If I were in YEV I'd rather be flying than sitting on my ass waiting for an 1142 nm ev-xd run, but some people like to sit around and do nothing.

Aviation Québec Labrador has been out of business for a good four years if not more.

Aeropro runs one.

Yeah, Skyward has been done for two years now. Those airplanes have to be pop cans by now. I think TC needs to update their list :?

Didn't know Aeropro had one too..According to PCC they're looking for a captain also. I wouldn't hold my breath for any out of work E110 captains with valid PPC's. I think this is where they sit in Canada (and not for too much longer).

3 @ Pacific Coastal

1 @ Aeropro

I'm quite certain Pasco got rid of their E110's. One is actually out in Quebec somewhere. I'm not sure where the other two went, somewhere much warmer I think.

The aircraft in those two photos look very familiar.

Mind you, you have to take their website with a grain of salt, cause I've never flown a beaver that would do 110 kts. Unless I was going downhill at meto power... :wink:

I'M 100% with you this one. I actually thought Borek was more of a class act than this...I am going to give them the benefit of the doubt and think it is because they need a pilot fast

It's one thing to welcome a guy with a PPC. It makes good business sense. But to openly recruit PPC'd drivers stinks! I too, thought better of them.

I would think that if KBA were looking for pilots for their Bandit, they would post it in the employment section. I have seen previous KBA posts there....not in the general comments section. Maybe its a "pilot" posting it cause he wants out and is trying to find a replacement?? who knows. Just my .02.
