March 16 and March 30 GSs are still going ahead with 20 OTS pilots in each. All GGN pilots are through.
When I hear of more GS I’ll post or whatever news I get about the future of hiring. Our April Schedule was delayed due to AC making changes to service so that will be a good indication of what the next couple months will look like for Jazz. We were already flying a lot due to the 737Max being down so likely going back to normal or slightly less than normal levels. This all depends on what happens with the panic in Canada over this virus.

Thanks KenoraPilot - good to see some other facts being posted too. Too much hysteria right now!

A lot of groundschools in Canada are already being cancelled or delayed due to covid-19. How is Jazz looking right now? Are they still planning gs every two weeks?
Where did you get that information from? I spoke to our training coordinator at Jazz this morning and she told me we are still good to go for Monday as they are short pilots because they haven't been able to get as many in the door as AC is taking - that was 30 minutes ago!
Where did I get that information from? What information? I asked if groundschools at Jazz were still going as normal. Thanks for answering in your weird way though I guess.

So far I've heard of sky regional, WestJet, and encore delaying groundschools after March. Heard it from word of mouth and on the forums here. Personally I don't think this pandemic is as bad as the media purports it to be. Thinking back to SARS, h1n1, etc, those disappeared fairly quickly. Hopefully the industry can hang in there until then.

Scheduled are 2x GS in April, 2x GS in May.
This was recently planned, but things do have a way of changing quickly depending on what kind of travel restrictions and group gathering restrictions are put in place. If travel inside of Canada is curtailed or stopped well then you've got your answer. For now, GS's continue as scheduled. Will update if I get more info.

The day that AC postpones PIT GS is the same day that Jazz will.

Jazz is hiring 90% for AC attrition replacement.

April flying bid pack is out. From what it looks like every type at every base is 80-87.5 block hours a month.

This schedule was built early March.....so who knows how long this last but the flying has “increased” for Jazz.

With how quickly things are deteriorating and the uncertainty going forward, I would be very surprised if ground schools in April or May are not postponed. Anyone in those classes should definitely keep other options on the table right now.

I don’t think Jazz even knows. Tomorrow is a new day and I’m thinking it’s not going to be good. AC announced they are cutting flights by 50% which one can assume will be the same for Jazz.

Cal apparently told the GS that started today, that they will be the last one until this international crisis comes to pass.

Its gonna be a huge game of catch up when it all blows over in a month or so.

I was honestly looking forward to some blocking averages that were't 87.5hrs a month! But I guess summer will either be crazy or dead. Hard to say at this point

If you are going to lay-off, you don’t start a groundschool.

Same logic applies at AC.

More likely to see LOA/reduced blocks/etc

I got the exact same one word for word.

Wonder if our interviews/sim Evals will stay on file or if we will need to start over. I just did my medical yesterday about 3 hours before everything was announced.

Was supposed to start on March 30th..."training and employment is postponed indefinitely"
Bummed out to say the least... Hopefully we get called back when the dust settles and don't have to reapply.

This is all changing extremely rapidly, I hope we can all recover economically, as rapid. We have gone from severe shortage, hiring DEC captains, to very likely laying off a good portion of the pilot group. News expected very shortly.
Stay healthy out there, keep positive it will recover.
