Re: Is Jazz Approach worth it?

First thing you don’t get any seniority at AC. On where you are based when hired, it depends where they need pilots and what seniority you draw. It’s possible that Jazz might not be hiring for 2 years plus. This sort of arrangement works in the pre COVID pilot shortage environment where places like...

Re: USA vs Canadian Airline Career

Not to mention there are now thousands of unemployed pilots in the US, no company is going to try to sponsor a Canadian pilot while they can hire a US pilot without going through hoops.

Re: Brand new pilot looking for advice during COVID

I’d go visit these places. Show your face. Talk with a chief pilot or the owner. They probably won’t have a job for you but in 3 months they might. And someone they met and talked to for 45 minutes stands out a lot more than a guy who emailed his resume for that job.

Re: Skylink Planes

Jazz requirement is 750hrs(they do need more multi engine time), Encore is 1000hrs, Porter is 1000hrs With 800 hrs you can get on with Encore, Jazz, etc. Why would you go somewhere that pays worse, has a worse schedule + has a bond? I get it why some guys stick around flying for decent 703 operator...

Re: Air Canada and Transat announce Increased Purchase Price to $18 per Share

I don't know about others but yes I very much did "count u my lucky stars" when I got hired at AC. And now to see people who were my FOs at Jazz and left to AT and ditching the AC brand, end up likely having a higher seniority than me does make me annoyed. So what, am I not allowed to be annoyed? 1...
