I thought a company looses its OC if both Chief Pilot and Ops Manager quit at the same time since they need one or the other to fill in the others role on his/her absense?
I believe they staggered their leaving over a couple of weeks for logistical reasons. Also from what I hear it was 4 captains that quit 2 weeks ago bringing the 6 week total to around 11 or 12 departures, some due to natural attrition but more than a couple were apparently just fed up with the company and safety/ working conditions.
I'm sorry but no way. Too many of the same faces working there to have lost 11 or 12. Hell, that is half the crew roster FFS. In six weeks too? Tell your info source to lay off the pipe, cause they are obviously smoking crack...
As far as the AOC getting pulled, there is a grace period involved. Usually sixty days to find someone qualified to fill the role. This prevents key personnel from holding owners hostage by giving them a chance to replace employees.
Both the former OM and CP deserved to move on with all the time they spent in 703. I wouldn't read anything more into than that per se. DC has been running 'Ho's out of YVR for a decade or more... About time for a change in my opinion. I wish him the best because he was great to work for.
Takamasa: Do go in and drop off a resume in person. I haven't been there for a while, but I never saw someone get hired that didn't walk in. Too many resumes to count come in by mail- you got to stand out from the crowd. One month they received over 70 unsolicited (read: no current ads) resumes. Why so many people want to work 14 hour duty days always confused me.
I want to fly a little and get paid alot- the inverse of the Orca experience.
Orca is not a bad place to work compared to the 703 ops that used to be in YVR. Exponentially better. That is not to say there isn't room for improvement, but it is what it is, 703. Not too many lifers in that end of the game because the hours will kill you. There will always be turnover as people move on to bigger and better, like the ones going to Pasco. I do wonder why you would make the move at 800 hours though- I guess the don't mind being an F/O for life...
