Re: Bid 2019

Q400 reduced because ROUGE taking a bunch of their routes, the DH8300 from YVR are moving to YYZ. Total DH8 base closure in YVR. I bet this is going to make a lot of people really happy. :roll: So they'll have the Q go into Castlegar, Cranbrook, Nanaimo and all the old DH8 routes? Is there even a d...

Re: Bid 2019

How many pilots coming from Georgian? Maximum on their roster eligible to join Jazz is 226. Of that how many go to AC directly, or choose not to join Jazz and stay at GGN or go elsewhere.....who knows. I'm gonna guess that about 200GGN pilots come to Jazz (roughly). 300+ more pilots, but massive re...

Re: Wil Jazz hire with instructing time only?

Dont worry man, Hans is just one of those people who is miserable about absolutely everything. True. (everything aviation related) He also cant quite seem to let go of a company he swears up and down he hates. Get on with your life. False. I don't hate Jazz. I never did.

Re: Jazz skid off taxiway in Bagotville, QC

Not good. It seems to be a norm, for small Canadian airports to have runways in good order, but their ramp is an ice rink. I've seen many, from Bagotville to Timmins, and many others.

1. Why is that?
2. Why do pilots accept operating in such environment?

Re: Cancelled flights.

Get this the guest services CSR just told me the Encore cancelled portion was due to it being a PROPELLER PLANE and it can’t fly in the snow.

Re: Canada faces severe shortage of pilots and aircraft workers - Ottawa Citizen

Gotta love these headlines. What's next? "Liberals are doing a great job"? One of the biggest disappointments in life, is realizing that our news "reporters" and stories are no longer about neutral fact reporting, but selling ads. Anything to get that "click". Sensationalist bullsh*t. Being a journa...

Re: Wil Jazz hire with instructing time only?

I would still prefer having a guy that flew in the north for only 100 hours than having a 1500 hr instructor... Oh come on. 100 hrs? That's not even enough to learn the aircraft. I do agree with you, from a flying experience point of view, instructors bring very little value to a two crew, IFR, hig...

Re: TA Passed.

Quick math shows that if you factor that approx 955 pilots voted yes that's around 66% of the whole list. So still a majority, no one will be able to say that a minority of people made the decision. I'd say the people that didn't vote were probably the ones close to retirement that would not be aff...

Holly sh*t... 92%? That is impressive. Trying to get pilots to vote is like chasing cows down the hills of Heidkopf. (It's not easy). I too am impressed, in the sense of the voter turnout.
