Are work conditions at Encore all that great? It's just CARs is it not? They were by far the lowest rung regional in the country when they launched if I recall correctly...

Re: One List

WJ pilots have scope but my understanding is Encore can have Jets, I imagine they might now be motivated to take some Jet flying from the mainline pilots.

Re: Regional Career

Wow some people really have problems, dont they? Here is an idea Capitaine: go to AC provided they will take you, and if you don't like it, go back to a regional or whatever floats your boat. Then you will know whether you will like it or not. The flying world has never been one of 9-5. At some poi...

Re: New hire bids

The transfer of flying is scheduled to be completed by the end of February(from memory), while this happens so will the transfer of pilots. I suspect the courses will be mostly GGN until then.

I will answer the technical aspect, as for how the crew ended up shutting it down and then restarted it, I can only speculate like the rest of you. As for the QRC(Quick reference checklist), both have you confirm the thrust lever and retard it to idle, the 200 has a retard system that actually bring...

The wording was there before. Sort of. The ability to bump was in the non-unionized WJPA mainline and Encore contracts from 2015.

Re: Buffalo DC-3 Hay River

I think they ran out of fuel, first one quit, then shortly after the other.
Instead of declaring a fuel leak, the used the ass covering excuse, the old plane just couldn’t maintain altitude on one.
Of course, this is all in jest because I have no idea what happened
