Um, the citizens of Kash are originally from Albany. Yes, it was a religeous "split" that saw some leave Albany and start the new reserve at ZKE.

Hi KAG,
Welcome to Jazz- a great place to be.
WRT headsets from Jazz, the wait time is loooooooong. Bring your DC's!

My typical drive from north-west edge of Barrie to T2 is 50 minutes (with a stop at Horton's, an hour is more like it). In the morning, if you are on the 400 before 0615 leaving Barrie, traffic is ok, if not light. After that, be prepared for slow downs. Learn the "back-roads" (5th sideroad /Weston ...

I can confirm... actually deny the rumor.

One has gone already, one is going and many are in the "been waiting for months" stage (likely going). Rumor abound that the new year will see more leaving.

A PA-31 is a great machine (Chieftain). It's not pressurized of course, but it handles ice extremely well. They are a common airplane, so parts/maintenance isn't as big a deal as some airplanes. I don't know any details on the AC70, other than to say it looks good from far... (Uugly!). I do know tha...

GGN is losing lot's of pilots. Apparently AC has reduced our flying a little, but I think the charter side of things is getting busy. There is even an internal bid for strictly "charter pilots" for next month. AC and Jazz are still in the early stages of hiring. As a result I would guess at the need...

Here's a link to the report for PYD. I believe this airplane went to New Zealand when the NorOntair ops ceased (not sure though). I know the AME who put that thing back together. Part of it involved a "splint" on the spar of the damaged wing. Apparently from that point on, DeHavilland wanted to hire...

Well that likely answers my question, the CFS that is. I just wondered as I don't recall being given the gears about this before. I guess given the multiple SIDs it makes sense. Thanks.

YYZ ATC Question

Just curious, but why do I always get asked to read back the SID too when I follow the procedure below, even with a CSR? Is there an exception in YYZ that I don't know about? Maybe in the Jepps? Anybody? "When the clearance is received on the ground, before departing a controlled aerodrome, and an S...

I, for one, have been in your shoes. Actually it sounds like we worked at the same place given your intro and load of fuel... The part where you feel you wasted time while you mentally were calculating/denying your current fuel status, been there and done it. It is amazing that with all the time and...

I think you'll find the whole application/evaluation process to be "classy". I've heard stories from the past about trying to get on to the former regionals, and it was a total crap-shoot. I think they've put a lot of effort into this hiring. Although they hired me :shock:

Good luck...

Well, my pet peeve is people who insist on touching the screens. Same goes for any instrument, electronic or not. So don't touch the screen, and give heck to anyone who does! Another thing is to always "clean up" when you are done. If your system has various modes and pointers, try to un-clutter it ...

With the amount of hiring and movment going on right now, I wouldn't go near any company requiring a bond.

Then again, you gotta look out for #1.

I know that's not the point of the thread perhaps, just my 2 cents.

It's not uncommon when there are no fatals and the crash isnt near a large white population. Exactly my point. It shouldn't matter that there were no fatals. If the exact same scenario happened in Peterborough, I bet it would be a field investigation. Regardless, you can always look at the example ...

What a load of bull. Remoteness of the area? Give me a break. You can't get any more access to a crash site than that. At an airport serviced by a sked carrier. This company needs to be investigated one way or another. Using the "remoteness" argument is pretty poor. An accident like this needs to be...

I was interviewed one day, contacted the next day to set up the sim and medical dates. All 3 items within an 8 day period.

I may be the exception and not the rule. My sim was a week ago and no news yet.

Good luck.

It would be 8 years ago this month that I met Nancy at the Shearwater Flying Club. I was there to do my Class 4 rating, and she hadn't been at it for too long, so she knew where I was coming from.
