Re: Everyone’s talking about it...

How many of you have said or heard “it’s going to take a crash before things change here” Pretty much anyone working in the industry at the 705 level feels the way in my experience, and the scary thing is a few people I know who are sim instructors at various airlines are saying it too. The only on...

Re: DEC

There are 2 remaining Express carriers. Both now are manifesting issues of lack of internal candidates for upgrade. Big problem at Jazz is the upgrade treadmill (as there are no min experience requirements for upgrade other than ATPL). Get hired. Upgrade in 12-18 months. Leave for AC 3 months later...

Upgrades on the Q in YVR are going under a year right now. The RJ is close to 2 still if my math is correct.

Re: August Equip Bid

The biggest barrier to Jazz providing 60% going forward (for example 0.6 x 600 = 360) for 2020 is the lack of qualified candidates (ATPL plus 2000 hours). The big winners will be the recent Jazz hires who meet these minimum qualifications and could leapfrog those that do not. So is it not a 2 year ...

Re: Arthritis

You can ask your TC Doctor. I suspect it's the same as blood pressure medication. Transport Canada doesn't have a policy on it. The FAA requires you take a week to make sure you are stabilized on a new prescription, but transport has no information available, My mom used to get cortisone shots and ...

I just started working there not too long ago and its a very different type of flight school. We just had a guy last week pass his flight test in 44.9hrs! It's still a new school with kinks to work out but a much better option than the nearby big operations By your posts it sounds like this is you ...

Re: New hire bids

You're fooling yourself if you think otherwise. I haven't seen the lifestyle at Encore, but I am right to be skeptical about Jazz based on the fact that they make you agree to move somewhere before telling you where. They have a commuting policy and therefore aren't telling you to move anywhere. As...

Re: King Air at Gillam, MB

These aircraft are G1000 equipped. Provided you punch in the right fuel load on start up it will automatically calculate what you will have on descent and be reasonably accurate.

Re: Keewatin

For any 250hr person accepting the job, my sympathies that's the best option you could find. No doubt you'll upgrade super quick. After that, get your ATPL signed off ASAP, and once your year is done, leave on the day your bond is done. 2000hrs and an ATPL, you could find a job nearing 100 grand. K...
