Re: Huge discouragement

Which Airline? Air Canada. Went to flight school, got a degree, then took a few years off and worked in the oil patch, did some geo technical drilling, drove truck a bit and then sent em a resume and got in! I will apply but likely waste of time. If I can't get offered an FO position at EVAS or Air...

You don't have to worry about working much, just slap on a MEL sticker if you can find room.

Re: 3 cropdusters in 2 weeks.

Crop spraying outfits have a get er done mentality. That is a rather insulting statement to the crop spraying industry. How much crop spraying experience do you have to make that statement? A quick glance at his posts will tell you. And it is insulting. Some of the best pilots were/are crop dusters.

seems like some here would do well in a communist regime receiving the same loaf bread as any other commrade regardless of job. And people wonder why pilots settle for less. Check your commie cards.

What’s this “pool” BS. You can’t tell people you have vacancies and then shove them in a pool to hold with other applicants so you can cherry pick when convenient when the time comes. How many of those people would have found jobs by then anyway? You need a vacancy filled? Post an ad with a closing...

Re: Air Georgian-National Post Article

Yes in my opinion it's fair, you are entitled to your opinion to. With avg Canadian salary below that, many would love to make that amount of money. Huh?

Don't let "sqwak" extremely juvenile comments divide you. Air Canada pilots have been through this, and more, over the last 5 decades. They have a backbone. This must be the lost decade then, because actions show otherwise. Care to give away the cargo flying again? Care to lock into another 10yr co...

Perhaps a bit of a stretch, but it certainly isn't roses there from those I know that work there. And it isn't jealously, just head shaking at the ineptness of ACPA/membership. But as pointed out, off topic.
