Porter's office is so sad. They have these wooden models of the C-Series all over. It must be like a constant reminder of what could have been.
Porter would have been out of business if they had them.
Not if they could’ve flown them from YTZ, I don’t think. They basically own the airport.

Caravan or Kodiak, with that many people on board.
Funny to hear city folk assume these types nowadays instead of the Beav.
I just don’t hear a lot of Beavers ripping around the Muskokas.

Re: Living near YYZ/YTZ

Because the reality that anything reasonably near the airport in Toronto is $700K like someone said isn’t always true.

Re: Living near YYZ/YTZ

You gotta look harder and figure out what you want to live in. GF and I just bought a condo in the beaches for $450; two bedroom, one bath. Pretty close to YTZ and a great place to live.

Re: Seeking advice- what would you do?

Might as well apply, but I doubt they’d take you at 650 hours. You could probably find an FO medevac job though. Ornge is hiring and the requirements are 500TT. Probably the best medevac company to work for.

Re: Harbour Air

I’ve always said that Dock/ramp spots are great while you’re a PPL or working on your CPL; then you’re learning for when you’re employable as a pilot. Once you have that CPL though, especially now, there’s no reason not to go be a pilot somewhere.

Re: Air Canada vs American Airlines A320

Also, AA's fleet is five times the size of ACs, and they have three times the staff, serving a country nearly as big with 10 times the population, with over double the revenue. Probably has something to do with it.

I have yet to hear a clear and concise non accented radio transmission from Nolinor. Haha well English is my first language, but I do speak French.... so I guess...

Re: Float pilot hiring scenario?

A Cessna is a Cessna, IMO. The numbers are different, and the engines as well, but they all FEEL the same. A 172 feels like a 182, 185, 206, 208; they just get bigger. I've heard even the straight wing Cessna jets pretty much feel like a rock solid 172. I notice you left out the crowd killer. Proba...

Re: Float pilot hiring scenario?

If I’m flying a Cessna seaplane, it’s gotta be a 185.

I don’t need to die in a 206 because I can’t open the door underwater lol.

Is there a point to the early connections program?

Should I apply at my current hours, or just wait until I have 1000 and apply directly as an FO? Is there an advantage to applying via the early connections program?
