Re: Best resource on airliner systems

Don't worry. In most other countries you go from 172 to 737.
Put in 60% or greater effort into ground school and you will pass no problem.
They don't intend to pay for your training just to wash you out.
Just the other day I was speaking to a nice old AC captain who did not graduate from high school.

Re: Can I get a job in Canada?

There are some carriers like EVAS that sponsor foreign pilots. You don't necessarily need a sponsor to immigrate though. See e.g. https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/immigrate-canada/express-entry/become-candidate/eligibility/federal-skilled-workers.html How exactly di...

Re: Everyday at WJ : union busting

Did some research on this "JS".
Perhaps he's not actually such a bad guy: viewtopic.php?t=6440
Not sure why he has 5 different accounts here though.
I can't tell if he's trolling or genuinely believes in what he's saying.

What's happening to the AC Express 1900s?

Seems like they're being stripped of the AC Livery.
Are they being phased out?

WJ Scab List

Back in the U.S. in the 80's and 90's, when airline pilots jumped the queue and applied to airlines while their pilots were undergoing a labour dispute, they were called "scabs". There is one such list of 6,000 individuals who took advantage of an ongoing labour dispute to further their own careers,...

Is grade eight considered high school now?

Do you think I am to old to go back to teaching flying?
Not at all. If anything, we could use more people like you!
Yes, high school starts in grade 8 now.
Sorry if my post came off as rude.
Best of luck with your medical.

Re: The importance of having a degree

If your reading comprehension was above grade eight and you could do basic math you would have a fairly good idea when I entered the industry by understanding what you are reading.....so here try again. Just because you were employed for "X" amount of years as a pilot does not mean that you began i...

Re: The importance of having a degree

Well confusedalot I managed to do quite well as a pilot with only grade eight. I flew for a living for fifty one years and as the years passed and my flying experience increased so did my earning capacity increase. I do not recall ever being asked how much education I had and I worked for some of t...

Re: The Air Canada OTS thread

Let's not get carried away here. We've all had those thoughts. I'm sure most of us have either jokingly, or in the heat of the moment, threatened another person at sometime or another in our lives. Our colleague here was, unfortunately, dumb enough to put these thoughts in writing, in a medium that ...
