There are RPs on NB aircraft?
I suppose there could be if they wanted...

What a waste of a position IMO.

Re: Who will bid the A220?

Yeah, that would be great, I'm sure the corporation will be happy to do it... remember most of those US airlines have international override and other premiums also... With Nav and Overseas premium on a 737 or 320 doing all overseas flying it adds up quickly. Likewise, if I'm giving up nights of sle...

Re: Who will bid the A220?

Fucking A we get paid more to fly at night.
And we get paid more premium to fly overseas.
And we get Nav pay.
And we get a blended rate when we do training or collect a guarantee, 1/2 day/night.

Why don't you? :roll:

Re: The Air Canada OTS thread

Bid out today is a big one.

800+ openings with retirements and new duty regs.

120 WB Captain openings.
250 NB Captain openings.

There is going to be a lot of movement.

Good luck, I wouldn't be delaying anything right now if your can help it!

Re: ALPA blows off ACPA? Or ACPA blows off ALPA?

Sounds like ALPA put a pause on ACPA with their leadership change, then ACPA did the same back... now there's too much on the table to revisit it at this point. No way I'm voting ALPA without guaranteed Group A and roll call voting at the Canada Board post:merger. ALPA would be wise to make it clear...

I think 5:1 this will pass, but I won't discount Quebecor's influence, some may believe there is more money there if this gets turned down and a bidding war is launched with another major player... only takes 1/3...

If you're unable the dates they sent in the email, I'm sure you can ask for another later date in the near future.

Re: When Should a New Pilot Begin Applying ?

Start researching operators and get your resunes and cover letters all ready and fire off resumes the day you get signed off on your CPL.

CPs look at resumes to hire someone and if you don't have a license they can't hire you and put it in the bin.
