Re: Georgian Interview

I'm also a YYC based Georgian pilot and am quite happy with it. I will agree that the walk can be quite long from the parking lot. In all seriousness though Georgian is a great place to work. :shock: $28K/year... Living in the most expensive cities in Canada (less Halifax)... Doesn't get better tha...

Helicopter style headset for Fixed Wing use?

Interested to know if anyone here uses heli style headset for aeroplane use. I like the coiled chord that seems a standard for heli headsets, but, i am curious to know if the headset itself and/or adapter (single prong to two prong) causes interference or reduces the quality of noise canceling (ANR)...

I imagine there would also be a ridiculous bond to go along with that "extraordinary" wage.

And now we dive even deeper into the shitter.

Re: The long down winded spiral of Instrument Time

When you are IFR and the weather is good, where are you looking? You still need to follow the airways or your 'direct to' and you do that how? Instruments! You get the prize for that correct answer. Any different when you are in cloud? NO! Ever tried to do an ILS by looking out the window? Do the l...

Re: What's considered low time for floats on the West coast?

250 - 500. .

Anyone on the west side of the island:
Tofino Air, Atleo, Air Nootka, & Air Cab.

West Coast Air used to be one of the bigger firms that picked up fellas with low time (really low sometimes), but has since scrapped that policy after HA bailed them out.

Good luck.

Don't listen to anyone who says you stayed on floats too long. I had close to 6000 hrs on floats when I made the jump to the IFR world. Your low level, low vis experience from the float world will put you head and shoulders above the other f/os who came from instructing or working their way off the...

Anyone here have recent success in jumping ship?
