Heard that the two last GS were yvr Q4 only, is that base super empty and they try to fill it up or is there still some quick lateral movement to other bases possible early during training or right after it ( In other words, should I plan to establish in YVR for 20 minutes or 20 centuries? :lol: )

Lots of vacancies there. A friend of mine showed me their open flying I couldn't believe how much there was.

I know this is dependent on many factors but what would the average time be to bid from a YVR to eastern base like YUL or YYZ?

YUL probably right away. YYZ i don't know, probably a while type depending.

I would say the majority of GGN pilots coming over will likely want YYZ base. YYZ used to be the most junior base but not any more. Quite a few retirements in the next 2-3 years though.

So a new pilot at Jazz, for the foreseeable future, would likely be looking at a western base ? And a hard time bidding back out east to YYZ?

It’s all going to depend on what type you get.

Q400 will have a tough time getting to yyz as the Q base is shrinking. If you get DH8 or RJ you could get to YYZ quickly.
If you want YUL they have all types and haven’t shrunk the base at all so YUL you could likely get to quickly.

YVR Q400 is super short staffed so likely quite a bit of that coming up in the up coming bids.

What's happening with the Q in YVR? Is it because of upgrades? Flow? People just moving out of the base?

All of the above plus for a new hire FO YVR from out of town it’s extremely expensive to live there. Loved the YVR flying I did but unless you have a place to stay it’s pricey out there.

With YVR seeming to be the base for new hires lately and with the high cost of living there what options are there for commuting/crashpads ? And how fast can one bid out the base ?
