Re: Sault College Aviation Question

Stay away from Sault Aviation. You only have to read the more then a few post here, and on other sites as to just how badly the program has become. You have a 50/50 chance of finishing on time at best. Many/most of the class of 2020 at times went a month or longer between flights last year. Most if...

Re: Ontario StudentHels Preference Seneca College/ Stay away

Hello D Before you spend the time looking , you should take a hour and research the many posts on here, as well other sites about the program. There are so many posts from current and former students of the issues at Sault Aviation regarding flying. For example, the class of 2020, most or all of th...

Re: Confederation College Flight Training

Failure rate? High.
Jazz pathway program? May not even be a thing for a good few years due to the impacts for covid-19, so I wouldn't get my hopes up too high. Plus only the top students get in which further narrows the shortlist of cadets.

Re: Cat1 Medicals for International Students

If your AME approved and sent it in then it's highly unlikely you get denied outright, however they may ask for further tests if needed i.e. a cardiovascular assessment if your ECG results were high

Re: TSX: CHR, AC, EIF, ONEX

Invested in AC at the moment, with a plan to buy more should the price further drop. CHR is going to become a penny stock real soon so I wouldn't bother looking into it.

Re: Snowbird replacement aircraft

I bet Trudy announces something soon. Every day he comes out at 11:00 am like a coo coo clock he spends another billion on something. He can just print more money and buy the new jets and everything will be just fine. How about you try putting on some big boy pants and stop whining like a child? Bo...

More realistically, try again some time around 2021...
We'll be training with them this coming May (might get pushed back, who knows at this point). Interested in this as well.

Re: Flight school delays - Covid19

First year Seneca student. All classes have been moved online for the rest of the semester. As for the summer, where the flight training begins, it is pin drop silence from upper management. Feel like I’m in a pitch black room with no doors, nobody is talking to us. If summer is cancelled, I wish th...

Re: Anyone from the sault want to state their own opinions of the school?

All these comments regarding Sault's "issues" seem like a massive shill. If I had to guess, probably some kid who got kicked from the Soo and keeps making new accounts to berate them.

Re: Crossroads in my life

Theres no need to go to confed or seneca or other silly programs. You already have a degree so you dont need to waste any more time. Go to a local flight school and get er done asap. If you dont mind instructing, then go for instructor rating after CPL. Once you get some time instructing, get your ...

Re: Crossroads in my life

There's a guy in my first year Seneca program who's 26.. he'll be pushing 30 when he graduates. Never too late my friend. Confed is subsidized by the government hence the low cost, thought keep in mind you don't get your group 1 multi-IFR with that program. You almost certainly want to get your mult...

Re: Best route to do training

If money's not a problem, I'd get it all done in 14 months at Brampton. If you're willing to move out of province, BCIT out in Vancouver has a decent 1.5 year program. Whatever you choose to do, I would not recommend the 3+ year college/university programs. Your degree will already check off that bo...

Because its true? It seems like they are slowly moving towards the way of privatization, and do nothing for retention for their pilots and any other trade.
I'm in the joint Seneca program with the RCAF, and they have nothing but good things to say.
