Re: Jazz Approach

So what? Go get a diploma. How much easier do you need it to be?

Re: Jazz Approach

Every generation has seen a benefit that the previous generation hasn’t seen. This is the best time to be alive in all of history. Let’s talk about aviation.

Re: Jazz Approach

I think they might train them to 150 PIC. Very high possibility that they will meet PICUS requirements before starting Still no clue how people will get the PIC time to begin PIC-US, or get the actual ATPL. Nice steady stream of career FOs. While I am not surprised to see this this morning, I am of ...

What is the chance of the industry just shutting down in 3-5 years? Airlines are starting to go belly up in Europe. Are there similar chances that it will happen in Canada?

What happened to criminology? Do that and get your fancy flying license at a less expensive school and you're golden. AirCanada doesn't care what degree you have. It could be in anything.

Re: WestJet Encore Pilot Open House Calgary September 4th

I laugh at how some of you are shocked at the notion of a 250hr FO being a possibility at Encore. The writing has been on the wall the past few years. With the way the industry and pilot supply is going, it’s guaranteed to happen at some point (if it hasn’t all ready). Jazz has been doing it succes...

Re: WestJet Encore Pilot Open House Calgary September 4th

Even if they interview candidates at 250hr that doesn't mean they are going to hire them. They can ask you to come back in 6-12 months to apply again if they feel you need more experience. I remember in 2015 you needed 1000hr to apply and 1500hr for the job offer. They stand by their 1000hr for the...
