You're leaving out how much that narrow body Captain has to work, the mount of sectors they need to fly, they'll likely be on reserve as well, pressure of being a captain, losing half that money to taxes, etc.

Re: Commuting YYJ to YVR

Frankly, how anyone could be a commuter is beyond me. They have much more patience, energy, and stress tolerance than I do. I get stressed out just watching them try to figure out how to get home. I certainly don't have what it takes.

Well I just got denied to rent an apartment in Toronto because I don't earn enough. So wages matter in more things than just being a "consumer".

So how does ATC do it with airliners?
You are often given a clearance to land with traffic ahead of you on final or still on the runway.

2018 CNE Airshow

The demonstration teams have started to arrive. This morning I saw the Thunderbirds say hello. There is an F-35 beating up the downtown core right now. Yesterday I saw the Air Cadet glider and tow plane. Have you guys seen anything else so far? I'm wondering what the "More acts to come" on the websi...

We didn't get new hire bios for this class. Just a picture of (most of) the class. I tell you they are a good looking bunch though.

Re: Air Canada Tokyo Incident

My first time in Narita I noticed some green taxiways and thought it was some new type of material they were using instead of concrete. Upon closer inspection they weren't in very good condition and that is when I realized they were under construction and painted green to look like infield (in a sha...

Re: New pot legislatiion brings on talk of pilot pee in a cup

If you walk down the street in Vancouver, Toronto, or Calgary you are currently breathing marijuana smoke everyday. This is when it is still illegal. Second hand smoke has not been a valid defense when faced with a positive drug test previously. It's the first thing employers are told the person wil...

Re: Pilots who recently got hired at Air Canada Mainline without going through Air Canada Express, what was your path?

Going through the new hire bios the non-express people were a mix of military and civilian. C-17 Captains, A310 Captains, Fighter pilots, Snowbirds, etc. Sunwing 737 Captains, Overseas carrier A320 Captains, WestJet/Transat/Cargojet/First Air Boeing pilots, etc. These are the kind of people you woul...

The online stuff is a personality test where you rank which statements are most like to least. You do one involving numbers but don't worry it's very simple math.

Re: TSC-ALPA vs ACPA

I voted the I don't understand one. Air Canada was deemed an essential service by the federal government. I'm not sure exactly what a union at Air Canada has to bargain with anymore. Wages and working conditions will be set by the Canada Industrial Relations Board.

Re: Commuting YYJ to YVR

Great information thanks. So how does the commute affect you in terms of fatigue? You said you allow a few flights before check-in so I'm guessing you are arriving in YVR a few hours early. You likely left home to catch your commuter flight maybe 90 minutes early. What's it like if you then have to ...

Re: Commuting YYJ to YVR

Thanks for the info bcflyer. So what is a typical month like for you? Do you have a place in YVR to rest before your flight? Do you commute the day before your supposed to work or typically go from the commute flight directly to work?

Commuting YYJ to YVR

Does anyone at AC do this commute? I'm wondering how it actually works and how much stress is involved. There seems to be many options for flights both from the airport and the seaplane base. I imagine the widebody positions would be ideal but would it also be feasible for other positions? Is a "cra...
