Re: Scope, Transat merger, other examples.

Just remember guys, any renegotiation that comes with a cash bonus attached is bribery, and in some manner will not likely be in favour of the pilot group as a whole, plain and simple. They're buying votes from people.

Re: Direct Entry Captain Course

Sky is purely a staffing company. It's AC's structure, gates, ground crew, dispatch, fuel, airplanes, even the training bill (For the sim only, not the instructors, since they're Sky pilots). All Sky does is supply crew and mx at a cut rate, paying their employees to do the same job, on the same equ...

Re: Air Transat runway incursion

There is indeed a discrepancy, and if you want you can see it on google earth. The chart shows the line past the corner of L, perpendicular to the edge of 8R. The actual line is a good bit before, and cuts across the corner on an angle. Normally, it would be a glaring error to go past a hold short l...

Re: AT Votes Yes for AC Acquisition

Something I've heard from the AC side is the very real possibility of Transat completely replacing Rouge.... Mainline needs pilots, so Rouge crew would slide over to mainline. Solves that. Rouge 319 and 767's at end of life would be retired and replaced by Transat's fleet with no changes to scope. T...

Re: What do you do when you think someone should never fly again?

Without a doubt some of the best students I've had, as well as the best flight crews I've worked with have been female- Captains and FO's. Might have something to do with having to prove themselves outside of their minority, yet doing so without machismo. It just translates into real competence and ...

Re: Direct Entry Captain Course

Not "too" many 3-4 year FO's at Sky. They're usually unique situations for any number of reasons. The main issue there is that while capt attrition has always been at a steady rate, the FO's previously hired at 2500 hours were upgradeable at the 2 years by the matrix (Also coincidentally eligible fo...

Re: Are Amber Alerts affecting your flight safety?

I've also put the notifications for them to silent on my S10. Easy peasy. When I get up in the morning the first thing I see is the type of car and where they might be going. I'll keep an eye out. But there is literally zero point to me getting the info in the middle of the night because, since I'm ...

Re: Thunder Air

I'd run as far as possible from this place. You'll fly safe, updated equipment. If you respect the operation and your fellow humans you'll find out what it's like to be respected and appreciated as a pilot. You'll have a decent schedule and really good pay, as well as benefits and a little pension. ...

You probably should. Regardless of meeting the bare minimum requirements, anyone that actually has "haters" should probably focus their lens on themselves.

Re: DOH merge.

Air Canada has stated it intends to run Transat as it's own brand. I predict there will NOT be a merger of the pilot groups. There's no way AC would just voluntarily increase the salaries of TS pilots, since at the end of the day, their wages and benefits are lower by a little bit. They would be ove...

Hardly over my head. But since you brought that up, It's only a point if it makes sense.

I strongly doubt more than a tiny handful of people bought at $37 and it would have been a plain old bad buy. That was their all time high, was overvalued, and it held only for a few days before starting a long correction. TRZ has spent almost 80% of it's life below $15. Nobody in the market is enti...
