Re: Zimex

Do you speak German? Might help a little but the guys are professionals and go by the book, sorry cant provide details on the interview but I wouldn't sweat it to much. Do you have the EASA licence? If no and they are looking at you then you have a better idea of their shortage. Maybe read up on the...

Re: ICS TRAINING...AND TO BE CERTIFIED and work abroad

I agree with the clueless response, must have been from a pilot, ha ha, but back to the original post. Overseas jobs usually require experience so for you to get a Dubai job you would probably need some experience and time on type or at least factory training. BUT a lot of these jobs fill by who you...

Re: Sunwing

When you work for an Airliine its usually night shift, an AMO you probably don't. So Sunwing, Westjet, KF Cargojet are all in the same category. Most desirable would be the one who gives you the most take home pay. If Sunwing was that company they wouldn't be short AME's.

Wings Magazine, AC first female pilot.

Did anyone read the blurb in Wings about Air Canada first Female pilot? hired in April 1978 she became Captain in 1997. Is that about right 19 years to upgrade? Not sure where the DC-3, DHC-6 and 748 time came in.

Re: For Dash Fans

I'd think the -6 has the biggest following. It's operating and has been operated by more people worldwide so more interest. I know personally when I see a Dirty Double I think, "whats the S.N of that one" If I find out I'll go the the TWINOTTERARCHIVE and look at the history.

Re: Is there really a shortage of aircraft mechanic in Canada?

Do you have the right to work in Canada? Decent job? Now thats a matter for debate. Yes be prepared to go out of the big cities, look at Thompson Man, Norman wells, Iqaluit, Red Lake . Could you survive a few years in these places? Doubtful that you'd earn enough as an apprentice to live in the big ...

It was in reference to the Coulson add. Razzing the HR department. As mentioned previously the HR people don't usually know an AME from a Cowboy so their adds are sometimes interesting to read.

A&P licence-----Aviation experience?

Can you get an A&P and not have any aviation experience? I know we used to joke and say the A&P was out of a Cracker Jack box but in reality with a M you need to prove experience and do a supervised task at an approved facility.

Are you living in Canada? Go see your local TC inspector and deal with them. As stated you will need a Canadian log book for the task sign offs so I don't know if a B1 in an EASA shop or a A&P would sign off on this. Ask the TC person you are dealing with. On the other hand with your experience and ...

Re: Putting my own fabric on my airplane without experience

I wouldn't go into a job like this blind. Fabric work is a real skill. Where are you located? I think a guy in Red Deer does a course on fabric. Unless your friend has experience on this I'd slow down and make sure you're not wasting your time and money.

Sometime in the distant past I read a report as to why AME's don't join their respective associations. Something to do with the make up and psyche of a typical AME and their aversion to joining.
