Application Timeline and Ground School

Post by faculties11 »

How long does the application process go for approximately after the campus interview?

I am reading there's approximately one GS a month. Is this true and are they filled for the remainder of 2019?

Depends on your experience level. Anyone who could fill or likely fill a Direct Entry Captain spot would be moved to the top of the list. If you're nearer to 1,000 hours total time, you're in line like everyone else.

About that, and no from what I hear.

Ground school class roughly every three weeks. If you have gotten a background check request, you're probably in.

Expect a ground school date between 3-10 weeks from now.

Ground school is 6 weeks in Calgary. Paid at the minimum monthly guarantee of 75 hours. If you are YYZ based, you can also expect a very generous per diem.

Is this still a good estimate of the timeline?

yes. I know some people that interviewed in late november, pool in dec/jan and got a call for feb. If youre getting a background check request youre most likely in. Be patient. Ground schools roughly every 2 weeks.

Yes but it will most likely be a 3-6 months in right seat so you will have an initial course unless you already have a Q400 PPC.

My on campus interview was beginning of February.

I received an email this week that I was placed in the pool.

Took approx. 3 weeks.

Now I'm waiting for a ground school date.

I interviewed mid February and they told me they are hiring for the YYC base. Two GS per month from March to April. Week after the interview they called me with an offer and said if I wanted to I could start in March.
