Re: Jazz to launch pay for type rating program

Yeah. Because everyone stays at the low end of the Jazz scale forever. Ramp a Cessna 206 or Buffalo Joes for the rest of your life. The money is so good. Or brag about your contract day rate that you can’t just pick up any time when you need to redo a roof. I hear real estate in YZF is cheap. So is...

Re: Jazz to launch pay for type rating program

If you don't wanna move up north go get your instructor rating and do that until you get 1500Hrs and Jazz will take ya! Or, and this is crazy but hear me out, do move north for a year or two since that time is nothing when you’re in your early twenties. Come out of it as the interesting person at p...

To understand TVS corporate safety culture, one should look at the QS-1125 incident this summer.

Re: Jazz to launch pay for type rating program

Why is it that aviation in Canada keeps managing to find ways to go backwards There is a very simple fix for that. Have all the unions band together and lobby for 1500 hr and a real ATPL (none of that frozen BS) in order to operate a 705 airliner. Instead we have corrupt unions who facilitates cade...

Re: Jazz Approach

I’ve always said this would happen. It’s the next logical step for Canadian aviation. Most of the other countries you don’t have to “pay your dues” up North or work as a flight instructor. You simply finish your training and get on with an airline in a mentor ship role. Sit as a Second officer and ...

Re: Boeing allegedly Misled FAA on MAX certification.

We’ll see how strong the military industrial lobby is. Precedent was set when the US DOJ attested, jailed and charged the VW executives for the so-called diesel emissions scandal. Haven’t seen any Boeing execs mugshots yet, but then again how much Boeing have legally bribed the duopoly (repubs and d...

Re: Air Canada staff will no longer greet 'ladies and gentlemen' onboard planes

As an AC pilot ( Captain) , I will continue to make the PA's using the term " Ladies and Gentlemen". Then again, I greet people with a "Merry Christmas " and also " Happy Easter" when celebrating those holidays. I also wear a poppy proudly. I cannot remember one negati...

Re: Recession incoming

In addition, I am a visible minority. How much of a hindrance can this pose during road trips, and applying to smaller 703 operations? I am born and raised in Canada so I speak fluent English, however, I have been told by several friends and family that I'll never find a job in aviation due to this...

Recession or not, there will always be doritos and coca cola going to the "communities" up north. And there will always be people from those same communities requiring medical services. There will be forest fires requiring some kind of detection plane, farmers who needs their field sprayed...

Re: Pilot Shortage / Minimums /disconnect

The ol' metro is a lot of airplane for a 600hr wonder, especially in winter. Carson had a low experienced Capt in a green on green situation do a runway excursion in Regina on a "PMA" ILS couple of years ago (I believed they touched down something like 8000' long). As far as I'm concerned,...

I know there are a few commuters that chose to go home during initial sim and use WJ: Be very careful. That rule is enforced by some WJ gate agents and the penalty for using the JS before LC is completed is severe: they can ban you for 1-2 years and even thought it's pretty rare, some agents do chec...

Re: What do you do when you think someone should never fly again?

In a 705 level operation these types will eventually get washed out by the training department, either through failed initial, line indoc or recurrent. Or if they are able to just scrape by then they will remain career FO's. If you have serious concerns then you should bring that up to your chief p...

WJ listing still works fine so I don't believe it's an issue with our company MyID account.
