Re: Skylink Planes

I dont know about you Skittles, but theres no bigger rush than shooting an NDB to minimums and it working out... this whole career is about pushing your limits, learn from it and become a better pilot for it. 5 years ago a gps equipped 152 to a non gps turbine was typical for career progression.

Re: Headset suggestion for Aviation College?

You can never regain your hearing.
Buy the best headset with noise cancelling you can afford. I'm in my late 30s and am aware that I'm losing my hearing.
Does Sault have a program with Bose for repairs etc?
I had a Litespeed and sent it for repair 3 times free of charge.

Re: Take home

Unfortunately you're subject to the seniority gods.
As of today....were fully rostered.
So not much opportunity for OT.
Per diem depending on schedule could be 300 to 1000 a month.
Apply for DEC anyway. Ya never know

Re: Take home

1st year FO 43.5k
2nd 47.5k
3rd 55k
That's base salary.
You can opt out of benefits. You can opt out if RRSP match.
3$/hr perdiem away from base.
So... whatever Ont. Taxes are... there's your take home
Does that help?

Re: Skylease Cargo 747 Runway Overrun YHZ Nov 7, 2018

YHZ is working on the Overrun area at the threshold of 23, hence displaced threshold btw threshold 23 and just past taxiway E. Generally a pain in the ass without the CAT2 on our only RWY. Therefore the only non GPS approach is the ILS14; every other approach, b/c of this construction, is a GPS appr...

Re: Porter airlines?

To fly part time you need to have been at porter for 8 years.
I think if you have 500T of which 400 is 2 crew turbine time... it's more "sought" at than 1000hr of instructing.

If you want a job.... apply.

you could group your days off... at 10 Guaranteed days off per month, you might be able too, based on seniority.

if you had no intentions to eventually move, I wouldn't risk it.
