Re: What do you do when you think someone should never fly again?

Co-joe that sucks, and thats what a CP is supposed to do - filter out those that are ready vs those that aren't. Years ago I was in a similar situation where one of my FO's/ trainees was literally the worst Ive ever flown with, had a horrible attitude and was not receptive to critique. I was young (...

Re: OTS WesJet Mainline FO

I commuted for 7 years to YYC from YYZ, it wasn't too bad. With Onex about to take the helm all bets are off about getting a YYC base. Lets assume for a minute that there is no reduction in YYC, and there are 787's coming (faster then originally planned) you'll see moment in YYC again. How long who ...

Re: What do you do when you think someone should never fly again?

I recently worked with a copilot that was by far the most incompetent person I have ever had the misfortune of working with. Utterly terrible at flying, had no idea what they were doing, and despite having over 2200hrs in flight time, I think most of it was spent being told to sit down and don't to...

Re: ONEX plans

Shark, I dont think we'll be doing much wide body delta flying but maybe some lower yield transborder flying, and get some left overs. Some more flying, a equity stake and leadership is what I'm hopeful for.

How many pre-PPL students own their own plane and so can legally train with an independent instructor? Not many.
Now this was 20+ years ago but at 2 different schools I taught at we had freelance instructors. They pay for plane, it's a bonus draw for the school

Re: Price/demand for free lance instructors.

Of that $350, $200 is AC wet, $150 instructor which I'm sure the school takes a healthy chunk. I'm thinking of renewing my rating and doing it part time for cash. Just a thought as OT is worth waaaaay more but I enjoyed instructing back in the day and I think I'd like it more now and have a lot more...

Price/demand for free lance instructors.

Been hearing horror stories from new students about the price theyre paying for instruction. Today heard $350/hr for a C152. That can't be real?
How much are free lance instructors getting per hour and hows the demand?

Re: New WestJet FO

Upgrades are seniority based. As long as your last few sims are clean and you dont have a serious attitude problem you get your upgrade. That seniority list includes encore and swoop. As for swoop who knows what onex has planned. Right now its slated to get 10 aircraft. Who knows if it'll expand or ...

Re: New WestJet FO

The point is if AC stagnates, everyone will. Think that left seat's going to come sooner at WJ if the economy tanks? Slagging someone coming to AC from WJ looking for a left seat makes no sense. If it's not coming at AC. It's for sure not coming at WJ. No one is slagging anyone. Infact I wish all m...

KAG,
if wording was the issue, why not rework it and put it to another vote? Common employee is a pipe dream and could take months to years before there's an answer. Did the company agree to it?
Totally agree, let's start with rewording now and finish with common employer later
