Does AC still allow you/spouse/children to keep flight benefits post-retirement?
It depends upon what age you retire and how many years of qualifying service you have when you retire.

In general, if you stay until pensionable age, you get travel benefits when you retire.

Is there any prior jet experience requirement for bidding directly onto a WB?

Hi all

I just submitted my application this morning and was told I would get an email confirming my application. I still haven't received an email. Does it normally take a while? Or did I do something wrong?

I had the same-never got an email saying application was received. Apparently if you have applied previously, you won’t get an email. When you originally applied, you would have gotten one. Subsequent applications and updated resumes won’t get you the email, that’s how I understand it.

Hmm ok thanks. I guess I did technically apply before but that was about 6 years ago. Have you gotten an interview?

No interview of any kind yet-Fingers crossed. I have been applying steady for years. I believe if you used the same email six years ago, then that would explain your situation.

Anyone know if they have Feb and/or March GSs scheduled? I know calls have gone out for the Jan 7th and I would assume the 28th course as well?

There’s a course every 3 weeks with 30-40 people for the foreseeable future. They tend not to have many during the summer though.

Thanks, just trying to get an idea of how far ahead they’ve “filled” the ground schools.

Hello all,

I have a question about updating my resume. I would like to update my resume from time to time by adding accumulated hours. Perhaps I am missing something, but it's not obvious to me how this is accomplished on the application website. I suppose I could keep submitting new applications as my hours accumulate, but I am thinking there may be a better way than having to continually submit new applications.

Is anyone able to offer any assistance in this regard?

Also, I note in a previous post that an applicant was concerned that he/she had not received an "email shortly" after submitting the application. I submitted an application (2nd application) about one week ago and I have not yet received the email.

Can anyone confirm definitively if I should expect an email, or is it because this is my second application I should not expect to receive an email?

Thanks very much for any assistance.

Only way to update your hours on the website it to reapply. You should get a confirmation email when any application is properly submitted, but apparently certain browsers don't work as well as others in making sure they receive it. So if you don't get that email I suggest using Firefox or Google chrome to submit your application.

You will not receive an email to subsequent applications for same email used on the same job ID as per Air Canada’s tech email. This should clear up all the confusion.

Because they need 600 pilots just to stay on track with vacancies and the new FTDT rules. Hiring will not slow for likely they next 2-3 years
