Re: Entry Level Jobs

Hello Is this time of year harder to find an entry-level job that would lead to a FO position? ... It's harder in tourism based areas cause that dies off, but in year round work areas like in medevacs, scheds, and crew changes it's actually the best time of year to look for work. Believe me, after ...

Re: Entry Level Jobs

Yeah, I talked to a company up north and they said they had a guy come from Summit (to them) who was there for 2 years on the ramp. I know that doesn't represent the north as a whole but I was surprised considering they keep posting ATR FOS, dispatch to flight line and ramp to flight line jobs. Tha...

Re: Entry Level Jobs

Since you're willing to work a ramp and relocate you shouldn't have any trouble finding anything right now with NWO and Territory operators. However, you'd probably find a lot better opportunity come spring. Yeah, I talked to a company up north and they said they had a guy come from Summit (to them...

Re: Entry Level Jobs

Traditionally yes it is harder come fall and winter to find jobs. Most charter outfits did their hiring for the busy season and things will start slowing down. It will be temporary though and some places will have steadier work (non float plane operators and scheduled services) places might not be ...

Re: Needing a place to do Multi and Multi IFR Training

Call Cornwall and calculate the cost of driving up there! It would be a nice experience to do the drive and they are able to get you going quickly and efficiently. They currently have a decent sized wait list! I was considering it since I heard good things. Have you heard much about Pro IFR recently?
