Re: Is the 4 year flat pay worth it?

That guy... He was asking how to plan a cross country flight only a couple months back. No credibility as far as working in this business, or managing a career in it, let alone at an airline level, is concerned.

Regardless, Air Canada flat pay and benefits are better than instructing
100 percent agreed! I wonder is instructing equally bad everywhere?

Don't discourage his fresh-out-of-flight school insights. They're so valuable. As he pointed out, he's so very wise.

Re: Is the 4 year flat pay worth it?

If you think aviation is the only industry that does this, you need to reevaluate. Every industry and every profession has their own variety of “work ramp up north for poverty wages for years first”.

You think a job that exceeds the median household income in this country and moves you into top 5% of income earners in a hurry, and then surely after that moves you into the very top percentile is being exploited? Don't get me wrong, we don't get paid enough, but exploited we are not. How many peo...

Re: How long can you wait after completing your cpl to file the paperwork

TC is using global exemptions to try to avoid disadvantaging anyone who could not meet calendar limits due to the Corona Virus. The 30 day limit for retesting after a partial failure has just been exempted. I would wait until July. If the current restrictions on flight training are still in place I...

As long as there is cargo to move around the globe I'd rather think the 737 will take the hit.
Definitely sounds like a good time to be at Encore.
Anyone that is at Encore is very likely gone in the next month....plus half the jet folks.

One benefit could be the end of 250 hr F/O going straight from flight school to the airlines.
How is that a benefit?

How long do you think before the schools get back into some normal operation? And for new potential students or people that want to go up for discovery flights , how long before we make them feel comfortable to come out and fly?
In a lot of cases probably never.
