Re: Seeking Captains to fly in Asia

You could at least list who the Airline is. Why is that such a secret? I'm guessing China. No thanks.

Re: Anxiety past. Do I have any chance of getting Cat 1 Medical?

As a commercial pilot, you will encounter stressful situations on occasion. This may include stressful financial situation again combined with a stressful flight situation. I would skip the Cat I and at most, be satisfied with a Cat III medical. Well said. Why use knowledge, pertinent information o...

If you signed a training bond and jumped ship....do the honourable thing and pay what you agreed to pay. Simple
But you don’t understand...he doesn’t want to work there anymore so shouldn’t have to pay it back. He only agreed to the bond because at the time he did want to work there.

Re: Air Canada - High School Requirements

You mentioned college courses that you have taken. Maybe get the transcript from that institution. Also from what is said above if you take university courses now, without completing a degree they will likely require the high school transcript anyway.

Re: Is it true SWG is only hiring Canadian pilots this year?

What do you figure is the savings to have a foreign pilot over a seasonal or full time cdn pilot? Say for the first year including initial training and then also for consecutive years where you could amortize the the initial training over multiple years. What is the cost to train and pay a full time...

Re: Sunwing is hiring seasonal pilots

Yes, the Sunwing pilots were detained and it's my understanding that one of the pilots was refused entry to work in the UK! Obviously, proper paperwork wasn't filed or given to the pilots! Can someone elaborate on this? You are probably right. If one pilot is returned to Canada, obviously the compa...

Re: Loss of licence insurance for airline pilots

You need an FAA medical to qualify or you need to maintain an FAA medical to be insured? i.e. Can I submit for an FAA medical and be granted insurance then not get any further FAA medical and still keep the insurance?
