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: Anyone lost faith in Porter's restart

The word I hear is that if the US/CAN border isn’t open by August 31st, Porter doesn’t plan to restart at all. I'd be interested in knowing your source. At this point, the border isn't going to be open by Aug 31st. The current restriction in place is Aug 21st, with the option to kick it down the ro...

Re: Anyone lost faith in Porter's restart

Does anyone still believe that Porter's restart is possible. Like others have mentioned, it's all based on demand and restrictions. Can they run a domestic operation? Sure but with the Atlantic bubble in place, doing only ON/QC; the question remains, what's the demand? If they lifted the bubble, th...

Re: Porter Airlines shifts restart of flights date to June 29

Not likely till Thanksgiving in my opinion.

With border restrictions, low passenger demand, cuts among other carriers, and the state of affairs in the USA; good luck!

Re: Logging cross country

Here's an article that speaks to the topic. https://aviationsolutions.net/812 I believe that the "25 nm rule" stems from an interpretation of CAR 605.38(3)(d) with regards to the carriage of an ELT. It stipulates that an FTU can operate within 25 nm of the departure aerodrome without an ELT. Hence, ...

Re: Porter Interview Questions

How would one differentiate between the candidates, if everyone provides the same "canned answers". The answer is rh...

Re: Porter Interview Questions

From what I remember, the technical questions come from how Porter operates. Think along the lines of the CAP Gen. - Approach bans - RVOP / LVOP - SCDA Approaches - LNAV/VNAV, LPV Approaches - RNP-AR Approaches - CAT II Approaches - Holding Speeds Also know a few things like: - GDP / APREQ / TMI - C...

In this case there some mitigating factors, the Assistant Chief Pilot - Pilot Recruitment and Retention left Porter in the spring to pursue other career advancement opportunities; and they have yet to staff ...

Re: Will Porter hire again after May 2019

Although I can't speak for Porter with regards to their intentions, I can speak from personal perspective with regards to the industry. Right now, Porter seems to be adequately staffed, with a few exceptions in the outstations. With the grounding of the 737 Max; the Air Canada purchase of Air Transa...

Re: What can a Q4 experienced DEC earn at Encore?

Or Porter, they have/had a DEC captain posting. You could, but why would you, if career advancement is your goal. So what your flying a Q400 out of the island. Maybe you're looking into the outstations. In the end, there isn't any flow to anything bigger for the foreseeable future. I'd bet nothing ...

Re: Will Porter hire again after May 2019

They haven't released the projection yet, but we are fully staffed with very little turnover at the moment. Flight Ops has played it close to the chest for some time now.

Re: CYOW De-Icing Pads usage

I've seen a mix of good, bad, and ugly. Depends on the time of day and weather. Normally call them 30 minutes prior to showing up at the pad. On average, it's 4-6 planes, and with 4 of the 6 bays open, you're in and out within 20 minutes. I've also been 12th in line; took us closer to 90 minutes bef...
