I can’t see anyone doing a recall as long as the US border remains closed, in fact I’d be shocked if more layoffs don’t come when the LOU’s all the companies signed expire

Re: Jazz APP aviation pathway program

At this point in time the future of AC (jazz by extension) and WJ are in question. Trying figure out if they will hire out of flight school is impossible when no one knows what the airline industry will look like a year from now.

Re: 220 Pilots, what are you thoughts so far??

What kind of fuel burns is it getting? A friend of mine flew the Max at AC after flying the EMB and he said it was the same fuel burn on each airplane except the max Is way more seating. Anyone know on a per seat basis how they compare? Also noise max vs 220 ?

Re: A sad end for this HS125

Possibly getting rid of things like fingerprints and DNA. Fair enough....but why not just keep using them? Fly in, dump the dope, fly out and get another load. Fly them once and torch them?? A) a lot of times they are flown into places they can land but not take off from B) lets say its 5000 lbs of...

Re: Will Westjet survive?

Management did their best to paint the pilots as the devil during negotiations and pit the rest of the employees against them.

Re: Advice needed for choices of schools!!!

Crime rate is only high in one area of the city that has drugs and poverty, it’s very easy to stay away from that spot and most of the city is quite safe. The flight school isn’t in the city they have 2 locations one in a town 10 min north of the city (St. Andrews) and the other in a town 45 min to ...

Re: Hanging up the headset... anyone done it ? Anyone thinking of it?

I am trying to leave. Tried to get an IT engineering job to use my bachelors degree but realized my skills are outdated and that I have a big gap in my resume from flying and that no one will hire or even interview me. My plan now is to start a local service business and if that doesn't make money ...

With the current state you will have an extremely hard time even getting the first job before it expires. In Canada right now there is a lot of 10 000 hour pilots laid off

As much as they sucked, it's not ideal having 1 less place to hire us.

Actually it is because the flying didn’t disappear it went to a company with better conditions

How rare are degrees? I feel like anyone under 30 would have one since most people want to have a backup career
I would be willing to bet that very few of the degrees that pilots have would be useful in getting a job in a “backup” career.

really inefficient, an ATR 72 freighter can carry 17 700lbs roughly at a much cheaper operating cost and can be loaded on pallets through the front door.
