Bearskin commuting?

Post by jpar84 »

Hi,

I was wondering if there are any current or former bearskin pilots who would know whether commuitng from YOW, is a possibility.

I'm guessing it would be possible given that YOW is part of the route structure howerver it isn't very close to any of the bases. Bearskin does have agreements with AC, WJ etc.. though right?

So would it depend on your base? Work well from any base? Be a disaster from all bases? Is it common?

Thanks!
JP

Commuting would be a disaster because no one flies yqt-yow direct. With the current scheds, you would at least need a crashpad in yqt for about 10 nights/month. You get 12 days off/month (usually 3, 2, 1, 6 days off blocks) so then you could jumpseat to yow for the 3, 2, and the 6 blocks if you wanted. Also, you'd probably end up overnighting in yow 1-2 nights a months with work.
