Re: Jazz Approach

I’ve always said this would happen. It’s the next logical step for Canadian aviation. Most of the other countries you don’t have to “pay your dues” up North or work as a flight instructor. You simply finish your training and get on with an airline in a mentor ship role. Sit as a Second officer and ...

Re: Jazz to launch pay for type rating program

Only rich kids will sign up for this, which means Jazz is in it for the money and not quality of candidates. Definitely lost respect for Jazz. I don't know if I would give my kid $126k to get a $40k a year job, sounds like a pretty terrible offer.

Re: Pilot Shortage / Minimums /disconnect

Skydiving is a tough gig nowadays. Lots of places going to turbine, requiring more time and sucking up the volume from the piston operators. Those with enough hours on type to get a job are fighting for the few hours. What used to be 300-400 hours a season is more like 170-200, and that's full-time....

Re: Canadian housing Prices / Wages

I left the industry 10 years ago and maybe thats the only reason I can afford my own home today. We'll see how it goes when I get back in. But yea, it's not just aviation, wages are stagnant almost everywhere.

Variety of routes out of YYZ

I've been out of the game for a while and see that YYZ base is mostly Dash 8s if not completely. Looks like only 5 or 6 cities are flown out of YYZ on the Q and maybe 1 in the future on the CRJ9 (Nashville)? Is this right? Is there a lot of variety in YYZ or are pilots allowed to bid for flights out...

Cargojet because I live down the street from YHM. Second choice would be Transat. Can't go wrong with heavy jet Airbus time especially if you want to go overseas. Westjet would be my last choice.

Re: Jazz or CargoJet?

MAL has starting salary on the B757 at 65k plus a 12k a year retention bonus. Contract is up for renegotiation in 2020. The salary will be at least 77k to start. Upgrades are 4-5 year at this point I reckon. The staff is senior and there is no movement at the top to leave. All the upgrades are from...

If you look at their payscale it stagnates pretty quickly. Morningstar has a much better salary and RRSP contribution. Nonetheless, it's heading in the right direction.

I don't see what is wrong with 80k a year. On two incomes, you should be able to afford a comfortable lifestyle. Even better if you can live on the highest income and bank the other.

Re: This is NOT the aviation of 5 years ago

I want to fly corporate and right seat on a Sovereign for 65k is good enough for me right now. Don't meet the requirements yet but would be interested in the future. Sounds like a great gig. I think most people are gunning for the big league airlines and now is a good time for that.
