Re: Air Canada threatening to cut A220 orders....

As a currently laid off pilot, I’m sympathetic to the cause of having the 14-day quarantine removed because I believe that the sooner it’s removed, the sooner I’ll be able to return to work. With that being said, the COVID-19 outbreak is an unprecedented crisis, and many areas are now seeing the rep...

CEWS ends August 29.

CERB ends October 03.

Then EI.
Was CEWS not recently extended until mid-December?

Re: Nolinor Aviation Starts New Airline

In the nearly ten years I’ve been a part of the aviation industry in this country, I’ve had the pleasure of working with several ex-Nolinor employees including both pilots and flight attendants, some of whom would later become close friends. Interestingly, I’ve never heard someone make a single posi...

Re: Air Transat Ferry flights

I know that in the case of Sunwing, certain members of the management within the Flight Ops department remain on the payroll despite the remainder of the pilots being laid off, i.e. VPFO, DFO, CP, etc. as well as several of the senior managers within the training department. I believe some of these ...

Re: Good FTU for instructing-Montreal/GTA

If you don't speak French fluently, finding an instructor position in Montreal could be tough. With that being said, if I were you I would look into Cornwall Aviation. They have a good reputation and although I've never worked there, I've only heard good things from those who have. It seems to be a ...

Re: Direct Entry Captain Course

You can easily make 100K a year with all the draft available and some good friends in Crew Sched. What sucks is the way management will control things. Flight Ops is full of yes men to management who don't really have much of any backbones (with the one exception). What used to be a public little b...

Cavalier44, what kind of experience do you have? Interview july 2018 and I'm still waiting. Thanks ~5500 TT ~1000 Jet PIC (E175) ~4000 Multi-Engine SIC (DHC6/DH8/E175) Not trying to be presumptuous, but if you interviewed in July 2018 and you’re still waiting for a response, perhaps it might be a g...

Last I heard from the rumour mill was one groundschool in mid-August and another in September. Take that with a grain of salt as it could change.

Re: Commuting

Why put yourself through the trouble? I’ve known many commuters as this company over the years - few of them stuck with it for very long. There simply is no commuting policy in effect at Sky Regional. Being on reserve and having to commute in and stay at a crash pad for multiple nights a month is no...

Re: 2018 Pilot Hiring

Got a phone call today for an early May interview date. No internal reference, so there does appear to be hope for those without one!

If any current Sunwing pilots have any tips for the interview process that they’d be inclined to share via PM, it would be much appreciated.
