Re: New Hires

From what I've heard, Porter put in some recall language to their Flight Ops Admin Guide (essentially some Terms and Conditions) associated with the shutdown and restart of the airline in the late spring/early summer of 2020. Essentially, no new pilots can be hired until all pilots currently on the...

Re: Guelph airpark (flight school?)

The flight school is back in action, seems kinda sketchy from what I can tell. I inquired with the owner about renting, and was told that I couldn't rent unless he got a copy of my PSTAR exam. Given that I already have my PPL, that seems pretty odd. Obviously I don't have a copy of my PSTAR on hand...

Improvements such as increasing Swoop flying and having those flights go from YYZ instead of YHM.

Re: Will Westjet survive?

Okay children, let’s get back on track. I’m not sure if it is as obvious to you as it is to me, but the laying off of the 3000 people was inevitable with the Onyx buyout. COVID 19 was only the perfectly timed excuse. Respectfully disagree. Pre-COVID the focus on On Time Performance and the expansio...

Re: Where is our union?

Did you have any communication from your union lately? Here we had absolutely no news from ALPA for weeks although things are moving at the airline, we just get some info from rumors and from facebook. I regularly see some articles about unions like ALPA in the US that are pushing hard the governme...

Re: IS TRANSPORT CANADA OPEN?

I called and left a VM asking about the status of my CPL application. Within an hour someone e-mailed me back. They lost my application. I sent them a copy and within a week my CPL sticker arrived. The best service ever from a Gov't body. Having to resend your application in because they lost it an...

Re: WS/WO Layoff Mitigation Agreement

WestJet will not be laying off any more active pilots. It is not their intention to lay any furloughed pilots off as long as CEWS continues. Pilots who have been furloughed were given the option between CEWS and lay off. Pilots who chose CEWS can expect to continue to receive CEWS as long as the pro...

Re: #Swoopprez Out!

Exactly. It's the international growth (787's) of WJ that's probably going to take a hit for a couple of years. The low cost part is probably going to see good growth figures. 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 goo...

An owned aircraft to sell is great when there's a demand for airplanes.

Re: WestJet Group Hiring Freeze

Swoop pilots got a reduced block of 53 hours on an MOA for April. (To be clear, I'm not a Swoop pilot. Just saw the MOA). what about those in training? At Encore, the current trainees I believe are going home and getting paid the MMG for now. Training is suspended at the moment, as far as I know. N...

Re: Was one list a good idea

Remember, every 737 pilot that bumps down into the Q would require ~$20,000 in training.

It forced the company's hand.
