I have a groundschool in March. I am wondering what my odds of being able to get the classic at any base are?. Is the classic a highly sought after aircraft? Or not so much? The Q would be pick number two..


Thanks !


Again, a great company and I'm lucky to have a job here for sure.. just a matter of personal preference and transition ease.

If Seneca grads can go from flying a Cessna to right seat in an RJ, you'll probably be OK with any type transition. The training department is top notch.

That being said, they have been filling a ton of positions on the classic lately. So that could be good or bad. Either good, as in there are lots of positions to fill. Or bad, as in all the positions are filled already.

Looking at the lists, there are a lot of Q and RJ vacancies out west that will eventually need filling... It's a mixed bag, you really won't know for sure until day 1.

If you want YYZ, don't take the RJ if it is offered and you have a choice. We don't have any of those positions in YYZ anymore, and with the 4 year type freeze, you likely won't be able to bid off it until you can hold the left seat somewhere. Personally, I would take the Q if you have that option. I see it having the most potential to get back to YYZ quickly if you don't get that base initially.

The classic in YYZ will have the fastest upgrade times over the Q, so consider that as well.

It does, at the moment, however you aren't type frozen to bid left seat.

Why would that matter? You're not frozen on type for an upgrade...

LOTS of vacancies in YUL. YVR and YYZ. YYC not so much..

Just saying the Classic is the earliest left seats by seniority at any base. I just think transitioning to the left seat from a plane you're currently flying is easier. Not impossible to do the other way but just easier if you're currently flying the plane your upgrading on. (Maybe old school of me) just my two cents :)

Heard from a little bird that there should be a bunch of YVR RJ and Q400 spots in the next 3 ground schools. And if for some reason there isn't, you'll be out west before you know it. Took me 3 months on the line.

YYZ is pretty tough to get into nowadays. I've been waiting for 2 months for it :) It may come tomorrow, or it may come in 6 months. The waiting game is fun, but it sure beats waking at 3:00 to fly to Northern Ontario.

I wouldn't say waiting game is "fun" lol
I waited 7mths for YYC base while in YVR. Wasn't bad and I loved the flying but commuting and waiting for a base does kinda suck.

My bad. I meant to say "The waiting game isn't fun, but it beats waking up at 3:00am"... :) Thanks for catching that.
