In case anyone is curious, in the last 6 months they have hired about 250 pilots. This according to the recently released master list.

Sept groundschools are most likely filled up or filling up....
Expect all equipment and most likely all YUL...

No idea on GS, but the last list showed vacancies at all bases on all types. But management seems to drop everyone in YUL and let them transfer over to whatever their preferred base is after a few months.

So it appears that 80% of Jazz new-hires are assigned to vacancies in YUL and then 90% of those pilots bid out of YUL ASAP resulting in 80% of all Jazz new-hires being assigned to vacancies in YUL.....

Hi All,

What is the upgrade time?
Schedule?
Is YVR a senior base?

Thanks

YVR used to be very senior, now its the opposite. The RJ is still quite senior for Captains but the Dash is very junior. Upgrades in a little over a year I believe on the classic -8

The quick upgrade merry-go-round will continue for as long as junior Jazz CA move to AC. Given the AC rejection rate, CA attrition will slow as will upgrade opportunities.

How many Jazz captains stay with Jazz after getting rejected from AC? I'd imagine some would go to Transat, Sunwing, WJ or overseas.

Most captains that get the PFO are staying so what rudder said is correct. Hard to give up the decent pay, vacation, good (but costly) benefits and DB pension and go elsewhere to start over. The quick upgrade thing is going to slow down at Jazz. YUL will likely remain a revolving door for a while though. Retirements slowly pick up but not for another 4-5 years. Tons in the 55-60 age range here.

What are the chances of a YVR base after initial groundschool?

Cheers.

It all depends on the type you get in GS for a YVR Base. Lately YVR has been decently junior at the bottom of most types. But I’d expect YUL to start.
