It doesn’t matter what you bid, they don’t have to train you in the new position.

220s won’t be ETOPS, they said the airplane is too small for any overseas flying

Re: The Air Canada OTS thread

March 11, April 1, and April 22 are the next groundschools. You can expect groundschools every 3 weeks for the time being, possibly every two weeks in the summer with between 30 and 40 new hires each.

Re: A320s

AC has no shortage of pilots, the issue with the wide body position is that pilots don't want to bid them so they'll simply go to new hires. With ground schools of 30 to 40 people running every three weeks and hundreds of resumes on file they have no problems filling the positions, the only differen...

Re: AC pay rates

900 guaranteed for pilots on flat pay (75h a month). Used to be 900 guaranteed for everyone when we had the Cargojet wetlease, I’m not sure of the status of that now. A wild guess would be around 80h a month average depending on the fleet and how productive the flying is, block holder vs reserve etc...

Re: AC pay rates

Nav Pay applies to overseas operations defined as:

Any flight operation that departs and/or arrives outside of Canada, the United
States (excluding Hawaii), Mexico, the Bahamas and the Territorial
Collectivity of Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon

Pilots on flat pay don’t receive nav pay.

You can't fly your old type as soon as you start training on the new type.

Re: Flight School Warm Temp Cutoff

At the school that I used to work it was at the instructor's discretion if you wanted to fly past 35 degrees or not(including humidex). We were on salary so most people would stay inside when it got that hot, but you could fly all day and melt your brain if you wanted to.

It's been a few years but the airport is still open after the tower closes, the airspace becomes an MF controlled zone if I remember correctly.

In case of the mixture I would put it at the end of the checklist below a dashed line, meaning you are gonna "hold on the line" until you line up or are number 1 for take off. Another option would be to put it as part of a line up checklist, "lights on, mixture rich" once you're clear to line up on ...

Re: Interview

They really insist on not only a printed copy but having it certified by previous companies. So if you haven't done so I would start working on that right away, tracking previous CPs for a signature can be a pain.
