Carson WILL come for you if you break the terms of your bond. This is a proven fact. Even if they know they will lose in court they will take it that far.

Re: Corporate vs Airlines

Where you are right now I would gun for the airlines. The market has changed a lot since I was growing up as a pilot, when multi pic was king. If you enter the airline system at this early stage you will do very well long term. That experience will open up higher end corporate gigs if you choose. Co...

Re: Skynorth BE20 ads

Weekly ads lately posted by skynorth. If that salary was true a company wouldn't keep posting. But who wants to go there as skynorth is not going to be getting the new medevac contract. Skynorth is bye bye, just a matter of time. What makes you so sure? Last I heard is they had the points for being...

Re: Skynorth BE20 ads

Great management group? That's funny, when I worked for them they ran a 100% illegal schedule and ripped through 12 captains in one year as a result. Dirty, run down crew houses. Forced bathroom cleaning time, even if you hadn't been up to the house in a month. "You are a team player. Riiiight?" Wor...

I think it’s safe to say with those vacancies that every new hire for the next year or so will be on the Q in YVR!
Anyone know how accurate this is? I would love to be on the Q in YVR.

Re: Canada faces severe shortage of pilots and aircraft workers - Ottawa Citizen

I recently presented at a career day at BCITs aviation program. 100 students attended. Of the 100 only 5 were pilots the rest were mechanics. One of the 5 pilots was a PPL who chose to do maintenance instead. This is a problem strictly created by working conditions as a low-mid time pilot. Who wants...
