Re: Entry Level Jobs

Traditionally yes it is harder come fall and winter to find jobs. Most charter outfits did their hiring for the busy season and things will start slowing down. It will be temporary though and some places will have steadier work (non float plane operators and scheduled services) places might not be a...

Re: Air Canada staff will no longer greet 'ladies and gentlemen' onboard planes

But biological sex has pertinent medical implications which is why it's on your ID. Clearly false. If a medical practitioner really needs to check what's on your id to determine if you have (or had) a penis at any stage of your life, run - don't walk - to seek service elsewhere. More seriously, non...

Re: Air Canada staff will no longer greet 'ladies and gentlemen' onboard planes

Great to see Air Canada leading with this, a small gesture that can mean a lot to those who don't identify male/female. Again as I stated earlier. The internal logic doesn't hold. Male and female are by their own admission biological sexes not genders. Man and woman are the genders they say so when...

Stabilized 500' VMC
Imc it's flaps 15 glide slope alive. Gear 1 dot above. Chieftain. I'm way slower. So I have to agree the 500, 1000, 1500 ft height they give the pilots is based on how much time to touchdown for your specific approach speed

Re: Air Canada staff will no longer greet 'ladies and gentlemen' onboard planes

What I don't get is they aren't even consistent with their internal logic. They say gender is different than biological sex. Man and woman genders male and female is biological sex. Well your ID though the category says Gender (cause even now it is officially synonymous with sex) says M or F. Male o...

I have my doubts about that. They can't fill 74 out of the island for takeoff performance issues in the summer. I don't see why they'd go to 78

Re: Interim bid out

Basically as I understand it, flat pay is much lower than any other WBFO. You can only get off flat pay early by bidding to captain ~2 years currently, and with course rights you can't get back to WBFO.

Which airport has this kind of common sense security folks?
Fredericton NB. You have to go put your own checked luggage through the scanner it's so small. But I never seem to have screening issues. Usually older more experienced security personnel.

I laugh at how some of you are shocked at the notion of a 250hr FO being a possibility at Encore. The writing has been on the wall the past few years. With the way the industry and pilot supply is going, it’s guaranteed to happen at some point (if it hasn’t all ready). Jazz has been doing it succes...

Re: Realistic TT for Jazz or Encore?

The real problem is, as so many have stated before, that at the 705 level seniority is life. Low timers would be dumb not to jump ship (especially if at one of the many dead end 703 jobs) to get that seniority number as early as possible.

So wait... Are you guys seriously taking 250 hr pilots now? Or just an "early connections" type deal where you get their info and come back at 1000 hrs?
