Re: Morningstar

Sure, that's totally possible. The problem is that a blanket statement of "we're not taking airline guys" means that they won't look too hard at anyone's cover letter after reading that the applicant is on furlough. But what do I know, it's their company and they can run it however they please.

Re: Morningstar

I can certainly see how on one hand they don't want to invest their time in someone who will leave as soon as they are recalled back to AC or WS, but do they not realize that the same thing will happen to 704/705 lite captains who will go back to wherever they were making good $$$ prior? While a job...

Unfortunately, they don't even want to interview guys like me.
With all of the applications they received, I wouldn't be surprised if they're still sorting resumes.

There are turboprop companies in Canada that pay 130k CA/ 70k FO for first year drivers?

Re: Everyone’s talking about it...

Canadian aviation was different back when 3000 hours could barely score you an interview with Jazz. Experienced guys are retiring and the bottom line isn't enough to keep the average where it was back then. Is experience dropping across the board? Absolutely. Do you think the ever expanding AC and W...

Re: Skylink Planes

How many times have I heard skylink going missed off the NDB 06 @ YHM because of the ILS being down, or doing the arc into YSB and holding everyone else up. Probably not as many times as I’ve heard Jazz or Encore going missed at 300 OVC on the ILS, or going all the way to the RNAV on other side of ...

Re: Skylink Planes

Oh boy. You dinosaurs are so set in your ways it's not even funny. Is it possible to do NDB approaches and navigate your entire 14 hour day via VORs? The answer should be yes to anyone that holds a current IFR ticket. Being able to do so proficiently is another story. How many times have I heard sky...

Get a gig flying meat bombs around, or even survey/pipeline. Those should get you to 500 easily before the end of the summer.

Re: Ornge less than 500 hours

Seems like it's the single engine FO minimum for medevacs in Ontario. Twins look for at least 1000 TT with mpic depending on where you go.

Re: Swoop

Fully agree with you but there could be a couple reasons:

-Living in YHM/YEG and they prefer to keep it that way (even if it means working 20 days a month)
-Easy way to get jet time and go overseas.
-Brain dead

You’d think flying so much one would be at the top of their game.

Re: Seneca - Honours Bachelor of Aviation Technology

The FPR Seneca program is about as close as you can get to being in the RCAF while still being on the civil side of aviation. Professors are very harsh on everything ranging from appearance to academic performance. Some even go as far as judging you by the way you raise your hand in class. The progr...
