Re: Hiring?

Greetings all! My strong apologies with a stupid question to follow. Since we all know how much the industry has changed and we do indeed see the so-awaited shortage. I’m curious to know how flexible AT is with their required experience. Is the 2000 hours minimum a hard requirement even if you you h...

Re: 1000 hour pilots

I can confirm IFR is way easier than VFR, especially in dense airspace. Although there is a little more to learn in the IFR world, almost everything IFR is already made for you when you fly. From SIDs to Arrivals and STARS, all you do is you follow the instructions on paper/Ipad and ATC instructions.

Re: 1500 hr min

Typical Canadian and North American response: the 1500 hours for a job. Ridiculous. As a Canadian having lived overseas most of my life...I despise this and it Irritates me so much to hear about a 1500 hour rule. Reality Check...the only countries that are sustaining this despicable regulation are t...

Dear Fellow Airmen, Greetings. It might feel like things are slowing down, but I can reassure you they are not.

Re: Jazz interview.

For the fixed SIMS, the YYZ one is performed at the B737NG simulator at the back of the Threshold Aviation pilot store. Pretty nice machine. Its a good idea to rent it for a few hours to get used to it if you get a Sim evaluation. I think it goes for 140$ and hour. The Sim eval is pretty standard. T...

Avoid these two like the plague. As many have stated, regardless of how the Aviation industry is...the wait is fairly long. Everyone I know that went through there did a good 2 years AVERAGE. The people that tell you 6 months to a year....well I still yet to have confirmations from more than 5 guys....

Its all about the math. The economy is just a small factor that is probably harmless at this point. - The majors and regionals have, up to this point, acquired dozens of additional equipment.

Re: 38 years old and never kissed a girl (Trajically Hip..;)

Never too late to join aviation. I know a person who joined at 45 years old. You will be in the older pack, but it does not disqualify you for employment. The only issue that can present itself in joining aviation at a late age, is pay versus lifestyle. Although I ignore your professional background...
