Re: DEC

Add some virtual (or better yet, real ones) bases, so people can live in CYQT, CYWG, CYOW etc. They would have much more applicants. For an airline, adding some confirmed seats on the planes should not be excessively expensive. I am really curious about this. Why is it that companies don't offer gu...

Re: First RCAF C-295 makes Maiden Flight

If I was in need of SAR, I wouldn't want that 295 coming for me. It's tiny, has no payload, needs multiple fuel stops to get anywhere, is too slow, has no loiter time. The SAR Techs can't even stand up inside it. But, we can all sleep well at night knowing that the regional industrial benefits were...

Re: Jazz or Sunwing ?

History has shown, every pilot group no matter what association or union or company, has always "effed" over those that come behind them. There is no solidarity in this industry... Best advise I ever heard was to run your career like a business, cause nobody else is looking out for you and yes I am ...

Re: Global pilot shortage has resulted in pay increases at airlines in Canada

One thing about retention bonuses is they tend to be a temporary measure and can be ended rather quickly where as wages increases are much harder to take away once implemented.

Re: Meet Swoop - WestJet's ultra-low-cost carrier has a name, a home and a purpose

Well this is indeed bothersome that Canadian pilots are becoming poverty level to the rest of the world. I'd be curious to see a list of what the mean pilot income would rank vs the globe. Because time and time again pilots in this country (no matter the airline) have proven themselves to be cannib...
