Re: Morningstar

I can't speak for the seniority of the Mirabel base but I can tell you that we definitely have guys that commute on the Boeing side. We have a few guys who live in Alberta but are based in YYZ. It's doable. On the Boeing side at least.

Re: Training in time of Covid-19

I'm quite curious about this too. Our company is in an interesting position because the only sims we can use are in the US and I don't think we're going there any time soon. My PPC expires May 1st so the clock is ticking. Right now all of our initial and recurrent training has been suspended indefin...

My cat 1 expired, as it’s over six months, will I need a cat one medical or am I good to go?
When did it expire? If it was before the extension you're out of luck. If it was after, you're good.

Most of the training bonds stipulates that in case of failure, the bond won’t be enforced.
I've never seen a bond that said that. Every bond I've seen stated that failures of attitude or training will result in the funds being owed.

Re: Convert Canadian ATPL to FAA

I've heard that DPE can issue a Temp ATP, but only for US Citizens My case was a bit different as I already had an FAA CPL but after I did my FAA ATP ride the DPE gave me a temp ATP certificate right away and I'm not a US citizen. This was in 2013 though; before the CTP stuff came in. Not sure if t...

I can't speak for the commuting aspect as I don't personally commute (although I do live 2 hours away). But regarding the pairings it's a bit of a mixed bag. Our longest pairing is 4 days but they don't happen often. It's been once a month for me. The majority of the pairings are two days (well real...

Re: Atpl question

That makes sense but I should've worded my question a bit differently. So, I am now type rated and i'm flying as an FO. Let's say that at the beginning of 2021, I get a new job on a different plane which requires a new type rating. What happens then? My Iatra written would no longer be valid (It ex...

Re: Atpl question

As stated above, it is 24 months or 5 years with integrated. In my case it was 4 years since I wrote and they issued the type rating on an IATRA so it all depends on who you get processing your license. It doesn't depend though. The regs are very clear on the matter. The ATPL exams are valid for tw...

Re: Atpl question

to upgrade the license to a ATPL the exams must be written within 24 months of meeting all requirements for the ATPL and having your logbook submitted. This is not true if you wrote the exams FOR THE PURPOSE of obtaining a two-crew type rating, and then got that two-crew type rating. I wrote my exa...

Re: CATSA nonsense

KCM would be fantastic but apparently even that is going down the drain. Some schmuck decided to try and smuggle something in to the airport so now you have to be in full uniform the use KCM privileges,

That said, if you think there's anything we can do, I'm all ears.

Re: Job Chances?

Who told you jet flying is not an option unless you have an ATPL? That's not true. As long as you have a Canadian Commercial Multi-IFR licence, AND THE RIGHT TO WORK IN CANADA, then start applying. There are a number of companies taking low time pilots right now.

Best of luck,

This, for some reason, makes me irrationally angry. It seems to have died down in the last 6 months or so but for a while it was quite pervasive. Is there a reason that it became so common?
