Re: New hire bids

To be fair, at least AC gives you a few days to figure it out and talk it over with the ones who it’ll affect. Jazz was just a simple “you got 24 hours good luck”, which to me was unexpected. Isn’t the equipment draw at AC day 3? Compared to day 2 at Jazz. And you have lots of time to talk it over ...

Re: New hire bids

How can a company expect you to take a job where you don't find out your base until after the first day of training. That is sketch. You know the bases before you even apply and you know there's a risk of not getting what you want. Don't apply if that's sketch. That's a question they ask in the int...

Re: Airline lifestyle

Like what's been said already. If it's AC you'll be able to get back to YVR fairly quickly. Jazz, hopefully don't get on the classic and you'll be back fairly quickly as well

Re: MPIC time or move on? What's next?

6-8 months really isn't that much of a wait in the grand scheme of things. Wait it out until you have enough time for your A's then start applying around

Re: DOH merge.

WRONG. A seniority merger will happen. No Air Canada Express operator flys aircraft with more than 75 seats, and one will NOT be set up that does. Its crazy to think for even a second that there will be another airline with a separate pilot list flying around in large jets owned by AC. The Contract...

Re: New hire bids

For those wondering, the latest class had: 4 YYZ RJ 2 YYC Q 8 YVR Q Morning All. Just curious as to how the bidding works. I know you get your seniority at initial hire based on either the random draw or ALPA status. Once you get that assigned, are you able to bid on the Location/Aircraft preferred...

I have all the required time, except total time.
How much total time do you have right now? The website says they want 750

Re: Encore, then Jazz?

Do what's best for you. If you want to leave your current position and encore offers you a job then take it and try commuting. From what I've heard commuting there is fairly easy. You're at encore for a few months and realize commuting isn't for you and Jazz offers you a spot then take it. You have ...

ATPL logbook question

I'm writing my exams shortly. I have pretty much the bare minimum PIC time for the ATPL but lots of FO time in 703 and 705 machines. One of the requirements is an additional 100 pic x-country or 200 copilot x-country. I have over 2000 hours copilot x-country but no column in my logbook for that; my ...

Re: DOH merge.

I think everyone is getting worked up over nothing. I don't think they will merge the company. At least not with Mainline. Maybe with Rouge but that was a risk they took when they left Mainline for Rouge so they can not cry foul too much about that. They can't. Why do you people keep saying it? htt...

Re: Any chance we just lost our AC flow?

Everyone needs to relax ! Let the deal actually be signed first. And AC isn’t just taking 550 pilots with no aircraft, the planes are coming too. AC will still be short pilots regardless. Not all the planes will fly for AC. I assume the 310's and probably the 737NG's will be parked. The hiring may ...

Re: Jazz or Porter (in terms of commuting out of yul) ?

I'm not particularly versed in the policy at Jazz since I never used it, but if I recall as long as you list for 2 flights prior to you scheduled pairing start you are safe. If you miss both there is no disciplinary action for not being able to get to your base to start the pairing. Perhaps someone...
