Re: SKYLINK EXPRESS

No. Greg and Dale have no clue, very easy to convert from king air to 1900 per what many of my friends have advised me. Do you have a 1900 type rating? I can confirm Skylink Express is not having a hard time filling Captain seats. Neither Greg Taylor/Dale Sweeney offered me a position. Lots of opera...

Re: SKYLINK EXPRESS

I can confirm Skylink Express is not having a hard time filling Captain seats. Neither Greg Taylor/Dale Sweeney offered me a position. Lots of operators like Skylink (turboprop focused) are having a hard time filling seats. Your best bet to get unbiased current pay information is to get on the horn ...

Interesting, how much from jazz on each AC gs these days? Used to be a lot..
Not very many.

Jazz ovehired and is now offering LOA and reduced flying blocks for balance of 2018 and winter season.
Damn I'm gonna be 15 years out of flight college before I make it to airlines.

Re: Manitoba Govt Air Services to be Privatised

Interesting. What's going to happen? Are they moving to a one operator in the province kind of deal? Wouldn't that be out of scope for this FRP? As far as I know, this is just about the life flight flights, which have a higher level of equipment/trained personell to accept more critical calls in sh...

Re: Tired of the Canadian Aviation Industry

With all the nitty bitty threads about "oh this operator sucks" or "for the love of god, please tell me they pay more" to "where can I get a good lifestyle", my conclusion is this: the industry in Canada is a complete and utter flop. The pay is substandard, the cost of living is insane, taxes are s...

Re: Jazz Pilot Pool

People find it a little funny because the average total time a pilot has coming to Jazz lately ranges from as low as 800T to 2/3000TT. "ish" Ball parks, however, the average experience level has been below 3000TT. I assume you have more than 5000TT? Yes Good Luck on the hiring process! Jazz is a lo...

Hell of an autopilot for a King Air.

No, I use my hands on power levers to control speed when autopilot on. When hand flying without FD it's the opposite.
