Re: Jazz Approach

While I am not surprised to see this this morning, I am of the opinion we (as a profession) should head the other way. In other words, I would have liked to see TC take a stance and require that all ATPL PIC requirements are fulfilled as a pre-requisite for writing either the A's or the IATRA. Yeah ...

Re: Corporate vs Airlines

Airline pays you to fly, Corporate pays you to wait (not necessarily at home mind you).

Decide which you prefer ;)

Re: Joining the RCAF at 37 years old

Finding pilots to fly the Polaris, Globemasters, Challengers, and hercs is not a problem. They form a small percentage of the cockpits and there are no shortages of volunteers within the ranks to fly them. Finding Hornets, Griffons and to a certain extent Cyclone drivers, with the number of cockpit ...

Just smile and nod. It's always fascinating to see the mental gymnastics of the regional pilot telling you why his job is better than AC.
Actually, I question the validity of the argument coming from anyone feeling the need to defend his or her career choices on a public forum.

Re: Joining the RCAF at 37 years old

Speaking from the perspective of a former military flight instructor. There are many reason why military flying training is done the way it is (reasons that are forgotten / not known, surprisingly, by the current generation save for few older pilots like myself). The most compelling reason however i...

Re: August Equip Bid

Does it mean Jazz is well-staffed? Especially with GGN pilots joining. If no bidding, hiring will slow or is Jazz short-staffed on the FO side? Even though there is no equipment bid, there are a lot of vacancies to be filled. It was stated in the communication we received and we can see that the st...

Re: Realistic TT for Jazz or Encore?

That's where you are wrong. Europe, with a variety of airlines and a good safety record, proves that this is not a requirement. Well selected 250 hour pilots are perfectly capable of learning how to safely fly a B737 or A320. To me, it's like playing Jenga. "Look!! I keep removing blocks and the to...

Non-705 operations NEED pilots, pilots NEED pre-705 experience and 705 operations NEED pilots with pre-705 experience .

Re: Realistic TT for Jazz or Encore?

The real problem is, as so many have stated before, that at the 705 level seniority is life. Low timers would be dumb not to jump ship (especially if at one of the many dead end 703 jobs) to get that seniority number as early as possible. And THAT is the #1 problem with aviation today. That seniori...

Re: August Equip Bid

With everything that needs to happen before the sale is finalized, company restructures and unions come to agreement, it is fairly safe to say that AT will continue to operate "as is" for at least another year if not more. Thinking that AT pilots will come in flocks in AC ground school in the next y...

Re: New hire bids

To be fair, at least AC gives you a few days to figure it out and talk it over with the ones who it’ll affect. Jazz was just a simple “you got 24 hours good luck”, which to me was unexpected. Isn’t the equipment draw at AC day 3? Compared to day 2 at Jazz. And you have lots of time to talk it over ...

Such little respect for those who wrote and keep writing the books with their blood.... Whenever we talk about a pilot who has been killed in a flying accident, we should all keep one thing in mind. He called upon the sum of all his knowledge and made a judgment. He believed in it so strongly that h...
