Re: Everyone’s talking about it...

dispatch does the hard part of the job with wx and flight planning, and ordering fuel... Is that the hard part of the job? Get real! What is the hardest part then according to you? If the flight planning is done properly, most scenarios are covered and decision making difficulties are greatly reduc...

Re: Westjet ad.

DaveP, The number of Encore pilots moving to AC in the last few months has everything to do with AC’s hiring plan and does not represent the wish or yearning of Encore pilots to leave for AC. The numbers of applications at AC from Encore is staggering in regards to the number of pilots at Encore. B...

Re: will AC take non ac express pilots?

They are looking for airline and overseas experienced guys to fill widebody right seats. If the starting pay was increased, they would get dozens of corporate jet guys with lots of overseas experience. And those that stayed in corporate would have the benefit of higher pay due to the “pilot shortag...

Re: Are people in the Airlines as miserable as those here?

A Westjet pilot recently told me he was bored to death flying the airlines. Bored = Safe. I love being bored at work. I left all the “excitement” at my last gig. Thank god. When my families on board I want the crew bored out their mind with all the levels of safety. Want to have fun at work? Stay i...

No, and you might notice most of miserable people here are not at the airlines. They’ll even talk about how miserable it is at the airlines, when they’re not at the airlines.

Re: Socialized Bidding (Rouge)

ML will NEVER have socialized bidding. No need to worry. When the provision for maximum monthly work days on the NB fleet was added (14/15/16), did it not have the effect of partially socializing pilot scheduling by forcing the sharing of efficient pairings with more junior pilots? yes. It's the ex...

At least at Swoop you could see the left seat in less than a decade. I suppose it depends on what is important to you in life, having the ego trip of four bars or making money? If you can't stand to be an FO, I guess you go to Swoop and make FO wages. Or, you go to mainline and out-earn a swoop cap...

Re: 2020 Hiring

Looking to clarify some things I've read on this thread. I saw someone mention that YYC is now the more senior base and a new hire would expect approx 2 yrs wait in YYZ. Is that 2 years for an OTS guy like myself or would that timeline be for an encore pilot? I understand this might be a "can of wo...

Re: The sad state of regional pilots in Canada

You might read things on here like "now has never been a better time to become a pilot". You hear about signing bonuses of up to $40k, regional pilots topping $60k in their first year. Most seem happy with their career thus far. Sounds good right? Nope, no such luck in Canada. Let's do the math (al...

By that logic A380 pilots should make the same as a CRJ100. Hell, the guy doing minow trapping in a supercub, $2500/month plus room and board. They're all airplanes, not rocket ships. The bigger the plane, the bigger the paycheck. Similar sized planes doing similar work should pay the same. Swoop 7...

I’ve always said this would happen. It’s the next logical step for Canadian aviation. Most of the other countries you don’t have to “pay your dues” up North or work as a flight instructor. You simply finish your training and get on with an airline in a mentor ship role. Sit as a Second officer and ...
