Re: The Air Canada OTS thread

If they could be somewhere else starting their seniority do it. Never put your career on hold waiting for HR. They are notoriously heartless. The one exception I guess would be Express. You couldn't accept a position there if you were maybe in the pool at AC because that would kick you out of it.

Re: The Air Canada OTS thread

The company can assign you any position it needs to as a new hire. They try to respect seniority when possible but your first bid is not a real bid. Right now they need WB FOs.

Re: A message to all GGN Pilots from a Jazz Pilot

Jazz (ALPA that is) has to decide on a cut off date, as it would be really unfair for any new Jazz hires (coming off the street) to be over taken by GGN pilots that end up dragging their feet beyond the agreed cross over deadline. Aren't Jazz pilots from PML 1.0 are overtaking off the street pilots...

Re: what if one engine fails on twin engined piston aircraft

"Zero thrust" settings are usually a bit liberal since the instructor or check pilot doesn't want to die.

Re: Fly CemAir Canada

Transport Canada is much more fair since they ignore safety problems equally across all companies. I'm not surprised to see an African regional airline decide to set up shop here after the run Air Georgian had.

I'd imagine it's also a bit embarrassing being among the worst paid WB FOs in the world.
I'd imagine it is THE lowest paying WB FO job in the world. There's no where else paying the equivalent of $40k USD on wide-body aircraft including third world countries.

Re: Sault Aviatoin, is it as bad as many have posted..

But when you have a 45-55% graduation rate in their aviation program (this is posted online in the schools records) then maybe there is a reason for that. It used to be like a 15% graduation rate. They way I hear that the students complained that too many people were failing out so the school lower...

I wonder why Onex doesn't just pony up the money for Transat. Without it WestJet is going to get decimated and their investment will be lost.

I wonder if ground workers would walk to their car in the parking lot at the end of their shift and go home or stay inside where it's safe if there's thunderstorms in the area.

Pretty sure that was just lip service to try to improve bargaining power and maintain the years long narrative that Transat is the better job.

Re: The Air Canada OTS thread

So the Jazz deal is to hire a certain percentage of Jazz pilots relative to OTS hires, right? So if they merge 600 Transat pilots they don't have to hire any Jazz pilots at all I imagine.
