Re: looking for Air Canada pilot directory

Mr schnitzel, if your comment was for me, your are 100% erroneous. I have no application to AC nor will I ever be making one. If people don't feel comfortable putting their info out there, it should be their choice. It was in jest. Asking for a private directory of airline personnel is, as most hav...

Truly, I had no idea the "Plus Size" passenger holds all the cards. :rolleyes:
Now you know. Do you have any suggestions for a practical fix for this problem?
Work for AC and bust out the 'ace of spade' B pass.

Re: Morningstar

I was wondering about the Caravan pilots at Morningstar. I saw the recent ad for 757 FO , I thought for sure they could have easily hired from within already? They say you can fly the caravan for a year and upgrade to FO on the 757. I find it odd they don’t mention upgrades to the ATR. Anyone have ...

Almost worth staying at the regionals with upgrades that far away.
It's tough with very steady growth. Small market cargo with only one, very good customer, means not a lot of upgrading.

The schedule is better than most regionals, but it is overnight.

Sorry you mean 9-10 years to hold left seat on the 57?!
Yes. Don't know if it's changed much in the last few years but I imagine not. Lots of young captains and they enjoy what they do.

Interesting choice considering how difficult it is becoming to operate GA aircraft from YYZ
Can't be any harder than trying to operate into or out of Downsview.

At least we get to see some pretty metal taxiing out occasionally.

Re: Corporate vs Airlines

Morningstar is hiring direct entry 757 FO, no need to fly the Caravan if you're not interested in that. The fact the '57 is open direct is pretty cool, used to be years before you could bid Boeing. The Caravan ain't bad though, 10-12 days a month, no nights and pay has increased a bit with an LOU, ...

Re: Air Canada Pay

Fyi I know I irritate a lot of airline guys on here, but honestly I'm in your corner.

When you win, everyone wins. Where my opinion differs is that I believe some focus should be paid particularly on increasing starting pay as you guys have it already pretty good beyond year 5 to 12.

The point that the OP made was 4 year pay should be addressed. Just food for thought, what do you think would be most beneficial to new hire pilots at AC, a $20/hour bump to each of the first 4 years on the pay scale or a $20/bump to the top year (year 12)? Considering top earners are making north ...

Another thing to remember is you don’t build time that fast in the corporate world. As mentioned above, if you want to get in a good gig, you’ll need considerably more hours than you currently have. If you go the airline route, you’ll build time fast and still have the option (if you really don’t l...
