Re: New hire bids

What's happening with the Q in YVR? Is it because of upgrades? Flow? People just moving out of the base?

Likely to the local Loblaws. There is very little movement at the moment. I'm an example, 6000+ hrs king air captain trying to land 705 position.

Re: 50 hours and no solo

I got my PPL at 48 hrs... There is a problem somewhere. Ask your instructor, he will tell you what's missing. If he keeps making you do circuits, he's not happy the way you handle the aircraft on either of the flight phases. "Never trust a student with fuel and oil". LOL. Quite the blanket statemen...

Hi,

Just wondering if they ask you to have your ATPL written prior to being invited for an interview or being granted a GS date?

Can they live with us having the IATRA for a few months?

Re: Encore, then Jazz?

I think he means wanting out of instructing. Gets on with WEN but since he lives in YVR would prefer working at Jazz as there's the chance of a YVR base with them. I don't think he's really caring about one over the other, except for that. Exactly... After 18 months of instruction, it's time to mov...

Encore, then Jazz?

Let's say Encore called and not Jazz, and you've been offered a GS date at Encore. For someone wanting to hold YVR or YUL as a base, would you considering switching companies after a few months (considering you hate your current job) if you're successful in the Jazz interview process?
