Re: COPA for Kids pilots now require police check

It's "funny" how we have double standards and nobody seems to give a sh*t. I love it how some women go out of their way to hint or suggest that men have it better, or that they (the women) are being discriminated. As a man I have to watch my every move when I'm volunteering for my kids' school. It g...

Re: Advice on where to start?

This is not a career that you "just look into". You either love aviation or you don't. My advice:
1. Get a real degree (doesn't matter what it is)
2. Get a Private Pilot License. If you still like it, then go get your CPL / ME / IFR
3. Get some flying experience
4. Get to fly for a regional airline.

Re: Classic Dash replacement??

KenoraPilot, Yeah. Happy New Year! I'll agree with you. If they come up with a brand new "-100/-300NG" type of Dash, with better, quieter engines, better avionics, more bin space, I'd have no problem. It's not the size of the plane that matters. It's the age of it. It shows. Like the other gentleman...

Could be worse bud. You could fly a DH8 at Jazz or a RJ200 at GGN. Sky Regional seems like heaven (aircraft / destination wise) compared to these two.

Re: Seeking accomodation for groundschool.

If he is hired into YYC and the training is in YYC then no accommodations are provided If he is hired into YYZ and training is in YYC the accommodations should be provided. This is pretty much standard across the industry. No it's not. Jazz paid for all my accommodation during my initial training.

Lots of companies abroad ask that you have time on type, but will take you if you've flown something similar. For example, you can be hired at Emirates on the 777 with only a 737 type rating.
