Re: AC New hires please us your WB bid

The baby boomer generation screwed the younger generations in so many ways. Situations like this are not unique to Air Canada. I wonder what it will be like sharing the flight deck and swapping legs with someone that makes 6 six times as much as you and owns multiple properties and luxury vehicles w...

Re: Career First Officer at AC by design?

Another factor is your sex and race, something you have zero control over. So there's no point in feeling bad when it could have been something as simple as what you were born as.

Re: North Atlantic Tracks

Yes you can request step climbs on NAT system. Whether you will get cleared for it is another question. ATC would have to be quite sure you are nowhere near other traffic to approve a climb. For flight planning purposes it's usually assumed you will not be able to step climb while oceanic.

Re: The Air Canada OTS thread

Looks like still lots of OTS hires in the last class. The class size was only 21 instead of 40 though. Usual mix of military, WestJetters, ex-pats returning, etc.
Nice to see some Georgian 1900 folks after their positions were eliminated.

Air traffic controllers can use cannabis off-duty but are expected to be fit to work when they show up for their shifts.

It's the principle of it.
That's very brave of you. I would be terrified of being tested in the U.S., Europe, Asia, or any of the other places that do random drug testing on airline pilots after they land.

Re: Uniform question

What's up with Air Canada pilots not wearing their full uniform these days? Quite often them not wearing the hat. I saw one taking his tie off in the terminal yesterday. Once you're done your flight are you allowed to just start stripping it off in public as you walk away from the plane?

Re: Employee Seating

You should post your issue in the Jazz forum. They might know more about what the contract says. I kind of doubts it mentions you are entitled to preferred seating but who knows. Maybe it was just something that they let slide for a while but now are cracking down on. I hope you aren't the one they ...

In his conversation with ATC he mentions he had doubts Alaska would hire him as a pilot because he was white. I think a lot of us have probably had this feeling at one point or another during our careers.
