Air Bravo, currently advertising for Captains. I was told they are firing FO's that are refusing to take offers of left seat positions, company wants a 10K bond signed and paid upfront.
Yea I heard the same but was hesitant to believe that. Apparently the company is not doing well financially which might be part of the reason for requesting cash upfront. Problem is that you might never see that money again if the company goes under before your bond expires.

Alkan Air now requires a 12 month training agreement. No money changes hands unless you leave early.

I know this may come as a shock to many people but Voyageur Airways no longer requires a bond.

Also if you have had positive experiences with companies that treat their pilots well.

I'll start with two 1). Commercial Aviation based in Hearst, Ont. as far as I know, have never charged a bond, also good A/C that are well maintained.
2). Clearwater Aviation based in La Loche , SK. great company with good A/C ,does not require bonds.

I would encourage pilots to apply to these companies as you would have a good experience.
If the young pilots had an alternative to the sh#tty companies out there, they might not apply to the crappy ones. Maybe if the supply of pilots starts to dry up for these sh@tty companies they will change their policies. If anyone else has a company please post it here.

I have edited this post on Sept 17/08 in order to add the list to the first post, so people do not have to go looking for it. I will continue to read this thread in order to add to the list.

Aries Aviation
Pro-Flight Ltd
Great River Air
Air Saguenay
Arctic Sunwest
Summit Air
Canadian North
Gilliam Air
Air Georgian
Air Labrador,
Provincial Airlines
Strait Air
Grenfell Health Corporation
Exactair ( we are not sure about this one, so if someone out there knows for sure, PM or post please)
Air North
Fort Francis Air
First Air
Clearwater Aviation
Commercial Aviation
Walsten Air
Airborne energy
Alberta Central Airways
Villers Air Service. Ft Nelson BC
Wolverine Air. Ft Simpson NWT

Kelowna Flight Craft
Air Spray
Calm Air (working Bond)
Transwest Air
Buffalo Air

I'm sure there are more out there, it doesn't matter how big or how small the company is,( Clearwater only has one aircraft) nor what type of aircraft they fly. For all you young guys or maybe just pilots looking for a change here is where you should send your resumes. Please keep the posts coming and keep this list growing. Good luck and safe flying.
