Re: Do the majors even consider a loser with a pardoned DUI?

I believe the question is to the extent of: "Have you been convicted of a crime for which a pardon has not been granted?" It's essentially as if it didn't happen once the pardon goes through. They can't ask, and you don't have to answer. Also, stay out of the USA until the pardon is granted. The Am...

Re: EVAS

EVAS is not lacking crews. I didn't get offered a position. They are lacking crews. Heard today they have declared a staffing emergency. It's in their CBA so they can force certain groups of people to work outside of their schedule. They also cancel a whole bunch of flight every month at the Halifa...

Re: Float Plane Insurance

I am a private pilot with 130 of total time. I owned (and recently sold) a cherokee 140 which I gained most of my hours. I now live on water in Northern Ontario and am looking to buy a 180 or 182 on straight floats. My question is about insurance. yes, i get it is a lot more than on wheels. Since I...

Renewed mine by mail this year. Took about 8 weeks to get back. Submitted to the Moncton office I believe. I heard Toronto processes items faster. Not sure if that's true.

Helicopter Crash - Near Calgary

https://globalnews.ca/news/4333227/pilo ... lgary/amp/

Says an ultralight helicopter in the article. I didn't know there was a category for that? Do they mean a homebuilt helicopter or perhaps a gyro?

Anyone hear more?

Re: Learning to fly in the golden years

My dad's nearing 70 and thinking to get his license and fly for fun. He might buy a plane, but I'm suggesting medical first, then PPL then plane. I read some stats in Plane and Pilot recently... - Oldest person to get a pilot's license: Lt. Col. (ret.) James Collins Warren. 87 Years old. He was a f...

Re: Thinking about plane purchase

I have considered this route and have spent a lot of time researching kit built planes but at this point I would rather get something that I can fly right off the bat rather than spending a year or 2 building. OM planes are something I would consider and am fairly mechanically and would likely look...

Re: Thinking about plane purchase

I am hoping that over the next 2-3 weeks I will be completing my RPP on floats. I passed my preflight and written last summer but ran out of time to complete my flight test (was a little disappointing but gave me a reason to force me to do some flying this year). I am hoping that a week or so of fl...

Re: Westjet mainline commuting

Hi all, with the new ad for FOs, I was wondering what the current westjet mainline commuting policy is, and if it is doable for a junior FO out of CYWG? How many days could you realistically expect to be home? What is the mainline FO pay like? Most information I find is either about Encore or reall...

Re: Ws Encore

3000-5000hr pilots taking an Encore job is depressing because that's apparently the best that pilot feels they can do. A pilot with that experience should be making a lot more money. Agreed. Or maybe, just maybe, some people are not motivated by the same things as you. Not everyone's life is focuse...

Re: Ws Encore

They have been hiring classes of approximately 10 people every two weeks. Send an email to recruiting and let them know you are past 1000 hours. If they don't reply with an interview, well it's a message. The last few classes have had some higher time applicants, i.e. 3000-5000 hours for FO positions.

Re: Strike vote

As I said in the WestJet threads in regards to this, the industry is supporting you. Regardless of which airline we all fly for I think it's the general consensus that wawcon should improve industry wide, or at least be set in stone before the duty regs are put into effect. You're all brave to be f...
