Re: Career First Officer at AC by design?

My Year 3 flat pay yielded 113k last year with a little bit of overtime and I made over 80k my first year and 90k my 2nd in the right seat of the EMJ. I have recently "offered" to take a WB FO position with the company and am happy with my decision. I work half as much as I did on the narrow body a...

Re: 125 PIC hours required for issuing ATPL.

The fault lies entirely on Transport Canada. Not the newbies taking advantage.

Re: AC New hires please use your WB bid

You guys knew what it was. Everyone has a choice here. Money or schedule. There are lots of choices. Can't handle 15 days at work? Don't like you're schedule? Bid RP and work 9 days a month. Wait until you can hold what you want at the seniority you want. Or bid senior on RSV and pick up some bette...

Re: AC New hires please use your WB bid

I'm kinda tired of people blaming AC pilots for the low starting pay. We tried to stop 4 year flat, B-scale LCC, save the pension... It was voted down by a majority of the membership, and then forced on us by the Ratt and Harper. We all took massive concessions in FOS. Only to have the company turn...

Re: AC New hires please us your WB bid

Regardless of how good or bad the new pension is, there is the immediate challenge of maintaining one's life style and paying the bills upon joining and surviving the flat pay for f..o..u..r l..o..n..g years!!! If Air Canada can't or doesn't want to increase the starting pay but would like to attra...

Re: AC New hires please us your WB bid

Yes. The new pension is hardly a fix. Not even close to parity with the DB. Those who think the issue is dead will be surprised. I do not harbour the resentment of some of my colleagues but I’ve heard “wait till we are the majority” more than once. I believe a storm is coming in time. Unfortunately.

Re: AC New hires please us your WB bid

I feel bad for the new hires that will be forced to use their WB FO bid in pit while on flat pay. Which will definitely happen eventually if the spots are not filled. Don’t expect it to change though. Welcome to AC. If you’re junior don’t expect anyone to care about you. Especially your fellow pilots.

Re: Career First Officer at AC by design?

Thanks for the insight, but I find that pay hard to believe. Do you have any evidence to back that up? Pay stubs? Before or after tax? I'm assuming before. Simply put, I need to see evidence of $220-240K/year. Not trying to be a jerk, but again, very hard to believe. There are AC 777 FO making $220...

Re: COPA for Kids pilots now require police check

In the past I have volunteered to work in a number of areas dealing with juvenile's, all required a police check in attempt to protect the children. I never felt that was a problem ……. I wonder why some would? Exactly. Working with children without a check isn't against your human rights. The lady ...

Re: C-Series?

Those who want to take a jet to LA can take a 25 minute train ride from downtown. There will never be jets from the island. Canada and especially Toronto are way too anti-business for that.

If there is a business case for basing out of Ottawa I hope it works out for them.

Re: Thoughts on ACPA Joining ALPA...

Not my report. It was done by two independent outside experts. If you don't want to believe it fine, but be prepared for repeated results. The 10 year deal was also approved by a strong majority of pilots. I was not a fan either but it went through. In 2009, AC was broke and had only occasionally p...
