Lots of YUL DH8 guys and girls are switching bases. It's tough to live in Montreal if you don't speak French, especially for those pilots with spouses. Finding work is not as easy as people think.

Everyone in montreal knows English, I don't speak French and live in Yul. My buddy is a bar tender here and doesn't know a lick of French. If you are new to jazz, don't be scared to stay and embrace it a bit. Might surprise yourself. People switch bases for lots of reasons but it's also a good opportunity to have a good job in an awesome city. There are those who hate every second here because it's not Calgary or Vancouver and those who embrace their time in a new culture.

New hires, don't listen to Hans. It's not tough to live here. It's awesome. As for spouses, meh, whatever.

Spoken like a juvenile. "Bar Tender" I'm surprised you didn't say "McDonalds Drive Thru associate".

Some of our significant others have high paying jobs and degrees, that unfortunately without French, would never get an equivalent job in Quebec. Their careers are important to them and, more often than not, make significantly more money than what Jazz pays their new F/Os. Remember, not everyone at Jazz is a single 24 year old "dude", that's cool living with 3 roommates and take the 747 bus to work every morning.

Some of us "older farts" actually have wives, husbands and children.

But if I were a single 24 year old, sure, Montreal would be a great place. Nice people, good looking women, great party atmosphere and French is not an issue.

Is there any truth to the rumour that Jazz can't fill the new hire classes? This thread seems to point in that direction too. Wanted 20, but only got 12.

I wouldn't be surprised given the current environment.

That said, the class that started June 5th has 20 in it.

Anybody get the inside scoop on the base/equipment from the June 5th class?

And to contribute to the GS class size, I'm pretty sure there's 14 for the June 19th course.

There have been a bunch of classes that could not be filled(for reasons that have not been mentioned). I saw there was discussion at the last ALPA meeting on the topic. It very well could be that they are unable to attract candidates due to compensation.

I think many of those interested in going to AC are having doubts now that the PML v2.0 isn't a guarantee (far from it actually) and are waiting it out, while many others are staying at their other 704 and 705 jobs due to the initial pay. Its a pilots market right now. Sadly the operators are still thinking it's 1989...

I agree with this 100%. I heard from friends at Porter (for example) that they are quite short on qualified pilots as well.

What are these managers thinking? Aviation is a dynamic industry and they're so resistant to change that, sometimes, it's hard to believe certain airlines (like Evas) are still operating.

It's not like this sprung up overnight...

If Jazz can still afford to dole out PFO's, then they can't be hurting too badly for qualified candidates.

Just an example of one company starting to struggle is Wasaya. They had a job posting looking for 44 pilots! That closed on the 7th of June. Those positions ranged from Caravan, to Dash 8.

Sometimes it's better to be understaffed than it is to hire the wrong person.

I heard PasCo upped left seat pay on the 1900 and now you're able to make over 100k/yr.

Agreed. Especially with the fast upgrades, they have to hire people that can be a Captain in a year.

They don't have enough applications of qualified people...

They should ask themselves, would I live in YYZ at 34K a year? Doing solely reserve with 2 or 3 days OFF in a row maximum for the first year?

Canada will end up like Asia, they're gonna hire 250 hours folks for right seat and offer stratospheric salaries for experienced and skilled people.

Seems empty spots in ground schools are becoming quite common. How long until until planes are routinely getting parked?

I don't think that's too far away. I get called almost every day I'm off for overtime, and turn most of it down. The CRJ new hire class from last month are also now on a one month break before entering the SIM because there are no time slots available. The CRJ is very understaffed through the whole system, especially out west.
