Re: 2020 Hiring

Does anyone know if WestJet is still on track for hiring with all the negatives in the news the last few weeks? Just wondering if they have made any changes to their forecasts. Thanks, Good question!

Re: CBAA 2019 Compensation Survey

The last line in the graphic shows FO on long range aircraft has a range from $62k - $105k as the base salary. Given the current market I would expect recent hiring to be toward the upper end of that spectrum. Comparably, you can go to a regional, upgrade to left seat in a year and make over $100k e...

funny they went with the max as Indigo purchased over 400 Neo's a few years back. I imagine right about now they might be changing their minds...
MAX not back until summer now. If they still are backed by Indigo it may be an excellent time to make the move away from Boeing.

Re: Air Sprint Questions

Question about the latest job ad:

Tagged as Citation FOs but ad text talks about the need for FOs and Capts for Jet aircraft. No mins listed for DECs. Can anyone clarify if this is just a cut and paste error or are they looking for CJ and Legacy crews?

Cheers,

Re: One List

I think the hardest thing, and a lot of the frustration, for Encore pilots at the moment is the uncertainty and zero direction from leadership.

Re: Military license to CPL

PIC in a multicrew airplane, presumably with a bunch of engines, does not help you to hone your skills in forced landings, spins and stalls for example. One could argue that the extra added pressure of solo time would be psychologically different (you screw up, you die) whereas in a multicrew envir...

I've heard this many times... It even applies to RCAF folks trying to make the move to the civil side. Government of Canada owns and operates the aircraft, it has an ICAO designation, but because there are no civil operators in Canada you can't have it on your licence...

I believe however major expansion is on the horizon at WestJet, just awaiting the Onex deal and Max situation. Once that happens there'll be meaningful growth. I would hope there would be some expansion and growth! Last numbers I heard were 9 years to upgrade on the 737, 15 years to sit right seat ...

Re: Military license to CPL

Don't waste your time getting the CPL. If you've got the time, get the ATPL (also no need to worry about "solo" time). I got the PPL when I completed PFT and then never bothered with anything else after that. I recently did the application for the ATPL with no issue. You will have to submit a copy o...

Has anyone had experience with AirPartners? There does not seem to be much on the forums about the company. Wondering what the WAWCON for an FO on Citation X as well as an overall take on the company / management?
