YUL FSS - summer 2015

#1 Post by hip » Mon Jun 08, 2015 6:51 am

hey guys

I just received an offer for a FSS formation beginning on June 18th at Montreal. Unfortunately, it is not a good timing for me and I had to decline this offer.

I wanted to know if any of you had also been been offered a FSS formation? Personaly, I would have prefered VFR, since working in a place like Nunavut really would not interest me... I also wonder if it would be possible to begin as an FSS, and to become a VFR later in your career?

Yes on the FSS to VFR (or IFR). It's an internal cross training program called EOCO (Employee Operational Careers Opportunity).

Depending on how bad you want it, you should probably reconsider the offer.

The training for FSS is easier, you can gain experience for a couple years then make the switch to VFR or IFR training while still getting paid your FSS salary as well as having a lot more knowledge than most applicants.

There is possibility to cross train later on. Just keep in mind, it's not as simple as it sounds; You will have to jump through many hoops, and there's no guarantee that you will actually get it.
