Is Sunwing running any ground schools this summer or do they start in the fall?
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...

These proposed conditions are truly horrific - and this is supposed to be an improvement over what the EVAS pilots have now?

Re: 2018 Pilot Hiring

Cavalier, when did you apply and what’s your experience? I applied for the first time in August 2018 but I didn’t receive a response. Reapplied around mid-March when the online hiring portal re-opened. Sitting at ~5500 TT, ~1000 Jet PIC. The majority of the rest is 705 SIC, various types (Jet/Turbo...

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.

Do you even have an MEC yet? And I’m pretty sure You don’t even have a collective agreement yet. Your work and schedule rules will be written into the collective agreement. Once ratified then you can enforce the collective agreement with crew planning/crew scheduling. Until then aren’t you still op...

I believe the Best Western Premiere on Carlingview still has an airline rate of around ~$90/night although it’s been the better part of a year since I’ve stayed there.

Are the new duty regulations perfect in every way? No, obviously there are areas where they could have been improved, certainly they fall short of American and other ICAO countries’ duty regulations. The concept of Fatigue Risk Management Systems (FRMS) in particular is flawed, and now allows operat...

This isn't going to happen. This has been wet dream rumour from Jazz pilots since the day Sky was created. As long as CR is in charge all the regionals will be separate. If you made the same statement five years ago I would’ve been inclined to agree with you. However I believe that the addition of ...

Let’s make it a pax load of 60-70 on a 110-145 seat aircraft. Does that make money? Or how about going from twice daily 76 seat jet se...

Re: Hiring

It's called "market forces" and paying each employee group based on the demand and industry standards. Other airlines do it too when their pay creeps up, even Air Canada! Instead of giving everyone a pay-cut, they introduce a "market standard" rate for new hires. That is completely reasonable, othe...

Or, given that they did NOT ask for a 30% pay decrease.

Re: Bombardier considers move away from Downsview

It’s sad to see Bombardier get broken up into smaller and smaller pieces as its major manufacturing programs are being sold off. At least the bright side to this is that some of these jobs will stay in Canada rather than having the Q400 program be sold to some other nation such as China, as was the ...
