Re: Possible Government assistance for training pilots.....given to the airlines?!

There will never be a shortage of right seaters. It is experience that is in short supply.

Re: Swoop ?

You can't compare with exchange rates. Much of everything you buy here costs similar dollar for dollar in the states.
^ This is pure fantasy, as is the comment that Jazz has the highest paid Dash 8 pilots

Re: Swoop ?

Geez I’m sorry. Maybe I was wrong but I thought the 757 pilots were making less than the Skyservice pilots they undercut?

Re: 2004 Pelee Island Georgian Express Van crash now in court

They always pushed but when we said no, that was the end of it...then they usually found the next pilot in line to do it.
And we still flew in ice after the North Bay crash.

We haven’t got that far down the resume pile yet!
It will come, barring some financial disaster or another 911 type event.

Re: Jazz to launch pay for type rating program

Realistically, as long as AC flat pay is such a disgrace, wages aren’t going anywhere. And the flat pay won’t change until the resume pile thins out drastically. That will never happen as long as a kid with 250hrs can sit right seat in an airliner. The 1500hr rule sure changed the financial fortunes...

Re: Jazz to launch pay for type rating program

Actually my post was meant to highlight the sad state of airine pay in canada. A new pilot at AC or it’s regionals shouldn’t need to live in their parents basement. A failed immigration policy that has contributed to insane housing prices also doesn’t help.

Ah yes, Living in your parents basement while your instagram shows pics of you posing beside the maple leaf on your Dash 8 tail! At least you can tell people that you fly an “Air Canada” plane!

Re: Swoop ?

I would have thought after SFO that the FAA would have started a push to line up our duty regs and experience rules with theirs. I guess until the planes actually collide nothing will be done.

Re: Swoop ?

You're not going to get any love here. Go get a job at an airline that isn't degrading our industry. Yes go work at AC and be the lowest paid 777 FO on the planet! Sorry how much do 737 Captains make at Swoop again? Everyone is always so quick to blame AC for their pay. I blame the Westjet, Swoops ...

Re: Pilot shortage State side

E3 visa was around long before Trump/Trudeau.
And you can bet that the pilot unions will fight tooth and nail against the border opening up to Canadians. They don’t want us coming in and doing the job for less (think Sunwing TFW fiasco)
