All the major airlines in Canada are getting nuked. Be prepared folks. We are all in big trouble. I hope we can come out strong when it all ends.

Re: Corona Virus

In Canada, I think we have been wreckless letting in daily flights from China. Every country is trying to deal with this the best way they can without destroying the economy. There is no perfect solution. A virus doesnt care. Nobody can predict this. USA has 10x the number of cases that Canada has,...

Re: Corona Virus

Trump has single-handedly made the situation worse in the USA and now he's trying to clean up his own mess. For some people it'll be too little and too late. It was he who closed down the pandemic planning agency. It was he who went on TV and said it'd all blow over in a couple of days. It was his ...

Re: 30 Day suspension-- all Travel Europe to US.

How long until layoffs begin? Travel industry is getting destroyed in the markets. Time to get serious imo. Hope for the best, prepare for the worst. It seems like this thing hasn't been bad in Canada yet and there isnt much panic, and maybe it wont be bad at all. Or more likely we are in for a real...

USA jobs for Canadians

Does anyone have any leads on flying gigs in the US that will sponsor a working visa/greencard? I saw a few years back the discussion on here about air wisconsin and H1B visas. I emailed them and got a response but nothing came out of it. I'd love to move to the US, and I've been trying to figure ou...

Re: Jazz to launch pay for type rating program

This new pay to fly scheme is very concerning to me. Why do they need pilots who already have a degree to spend $126k on this training. Most people I know with undergrads already have least $30-50k of debt. Add that all together and your looking at close to $200k of debt starting off life as a regio...

Traffic you cant explain

About 7 years ago I was flying VFR into CYHZ on a nice SKC day. The pilot I was flying with noticed traffic at our 12 o'clock probably 1000-2000 feet above us. It was a very difficult to make out what is was exactly. It was kind of light coloured but also bright. It was pretty stationary initially, ...

Re: Evas

EVAS pilots, keep it up and stay strong. Many have come before you and not had the courage to take action. Its really refreshing to see pilots unite try to make changes for the better. We all benefit across the board. Don't let management intimidate you, burn it to the ground if you must. I honestly...

Re: Air Canada Buys Air Transat

Meanwhile at WestJet all hell is breaking loose. Quite the week.

How will pay, seniority and flow work now with Transat in the AC picture? Should be fun to watch.

Re: Canadian North vs Regionals

Jazz gets you into AC eventually. Now that Transat is part of AC thats going to be an interesting place to be for sure.

Canadian North is great, but the North is not for everyone. Jazz keeps you near civilization.

Re: Westjet Mainline FO ad.

Why does WJ mainline even hire OTS? I mean, I know a handful of Encore Captains who have been there several years and still havent had the opportunity to flow up. Why not make the hires 100% from encore? It must be a little frustrating seeing waiting for the call when half the 737 classes are outsid...

Re: Thoughts - Cadet Pilot Trends

GGN did a cadet program a few years ago. I believe they had them train down in Florida at FlightSafety, then they came home and flew the 1900. I'm curious how those pilots are doing now, and if GGN would call the program a success or failure. I think the pilots paid for the training as any other pil...
