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...

I wonder what the CAE, zero to Jazz FO program students are being told?

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...

Why does avcanada always assume the worst?
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.

Re: Seneca College Airline Pilot Flight Operations Diploma

Snowcrest, the reason so many people dislike Seneca graduates is because of the ego that some those individuals display. As an example, I was working somewhere with Seneca students and one of them decided to tell me: “your XYZ school can’t get you into Jazz. You will need to make atleast 1000 hours...

Genuine question - coming from someone in the Seneca 4 year program: Why do you guys have such a vendetta against the Seneca/college programs?

Re: Seneca acceptance average?

I'm a first year at Seneca. High 70s - low 80s were waitlisted so be careful. I was one of those, but luckily got a place a week before the deadline. Nobody with low-mid 70s were accepted as far as I know, unless you were a mature student. Your best bet is to get and stay in the mid 80s range. Cheers
