When your invited to start training, after passing all the interview steps, exactly how does the aircraft and base selection play out?

If your from YYC and are eagerly wanting YYC base, how easy it to get YYC base if I pull a Montreal base from the random draw?

Also, how likely is it to get CRJ yyc base ?

thanks for replies!
Sept 21st GS was 8 Q400 in YYC. There are openings in pretty much every base on every airplane. If you are looking to be based in YYC your chances are pretty good because that base seems to be the one that needs the most pilots.

If you absolutely want the RJ then pick it if you can even if it is in YUL because you should get your transfer to YYC in no time.
If you absolutely want YYC right of the bat then I believe you will have to pick the Q400.

Good Luck !

The random draw is for order of picking the available positions, not the positions themselves. Although there have been cases when the order didn't matter, as the whole groundschool was getting YYC DH8 or whatever.

Like this last one, apparently 10 YYC Q positions.

I think if you were ever part of ALPA you get priority over others.. AKA Bearskin or whatever.

The last GS was 8 and as mentioned YYC Q. ALPA members based on date of hire at their previous company will hold seniority over the other new hires.

Jazz now has a process of 2 sim evals. This just happened over the last week or so I believe. One in full motion, one non motion.

Anyone know why? Looking for more information on this new process for a friend.
Thanks

It's a temporary thing. The company is looking to change to a FTD for Evans. They are using up too much time on the Full motion sims apparently..

Then why would they still have those going to the Calgary non motion sim still do a full motion D sim? Perhaps, if you can't get past the standard sim they don't bring you to the D?

From what I understand it's a procedures sim in Calgary, prior to the full motion D. Given I know someone who has a Calgary sim date booked, I think you are incorrect.

FWIW, Jazz does not have any simulator or IPT equipment in YYC.

Doesn't mean there wasn't any YYC evaluations going on...

I've worked here for 5 years. I know what's what.

At best it might be sit In front of a cockpit poster but that is totally useless and would do NOTHING for an interview.

A friend was called two days before the full motion YVR sim stating our procedures have changed. You are still booked for full motion in 2 days, but what days are you available IN YYC for another sim. So shes completed the full motion successfully and awaiting details for this poster sitting... Who knows!

my friend said this, and my friend said that, but she or he also said that!

They might use the Mont Royal Simulator?

Well using something like an allsim would definitely reduce a full level D sim cost which will be skyrocketing going forward. I wonder if they would move the whole Sim process of the interview to strictly a GA level sim eval. Interesting

Alsim is a good machine. I have about 15 hours in one.

Someone I know has his full motion booked before the Calgary one. Perhaps it's just for redundancy sake, a second eye, more or less.

Update on the two SIM thing.

From what I've been told its a test to see how the non motion compares to the full motion. They are running about 20 people through both right now to see how the end results compare. IE; if 8/10 pass the full motion, and only 10/10 pass the non motion or vice versa. They want to see how the end results compare between the two. They want to move fully to non motion to save money as it's about 1/4 the cost per hour and frees up the D's for LOFTS and ground schools and this is the first step in some research to see if it's viable.

It's not a permanent thing. There are some people who have gone through the interview two weeks ago that have two sims and others that has an interview last week that only have one.
