Fly CemAir Canada

Post by GoinVertical » Tue Sep 03, 2019 6:03 am

Who are these guys?

Hiring CRJ and 1900 crews; CRJ captain ad wants 1000 Jet and 300 on type. Requirements seem pretty steep unless they plan on convincing Jazz crews to come over or are trying to sponsor some new permanent residents with the requirements...

Seems to be a subsidiary of a South African airline "CemAir" which had its OC pulled due to safety concerns.

And CYQM of all places?

Strange :rolleyes:

Beat you to it by 3 minutes. Perhaps the Mods can combine the threads.

I noticed the person who posted the ads asked who all the 1900 operators in Canada were a couple months back. Perhaps forming their buisness plan back then?

FlyCemair "is a licensed international and domestic scheduled and non-scheduled airline" based in South Africa. Got the info from their official Twitter account. https://twitter.com/flycemair?lang=en

From: https://www.ch-aviation.com/portal/news ... flight-ops
As previously reported, against the backdrop of its acrimonious relationship with SACAA, Van Der Molen incorporated a company in Canada - FlyCemAir Canada - in May last year with two aircraft having been transferred from the South African to the Canadian register on April 1 of this year; Beech 1900D ZS-CMN (msn UE-26) now C-GIEI and CRJ100 ZS-CME (msn 7293) now C-GIER.

You think 3000 hours total and 1000 jet is steep for an RJ Captain?

CRJ and 1900 is this all ex-Georgian equipment?

Yes, exactly. For the times we are in, that is steep. 6 month upgrades at Jazz, DEC at Sky Regional, DEC at Swoop (ha).

I'm not saying it's crazy, but how many people in this country with those requirements do you think have an interest in working for a start-up operator they've never heard of?

Seems the answer is no:

No but 1500 hours and an RJ typerating is pretty steep for an FO position nowadays.

So is this another Canada Jetlines pipe dream? Where would they even fly to?

I don't consider the times steep. Likely because they are a new operator, those are the insurance minimums?

The move to Canada by CemAir offers it the possibility of operating in a fair environment where the regulator like the South African CAA does not ground you without any reason as stated by the CAAC just to enable the badly run state airline to continue on the routes after CemAir stole 60% of the market share. That is basically it.

Transport Canada is much more fair since they ignore safety problems equally across all companies. I'm not surprised to see an African regional airline decide to set up shop here after the run Air Georgian had.

Does this mean they are not coming to Cyqm?
The traffic out of Moncton is starting to rival larger cities now, especially with so many working out of province doing rotations for every sort of trade. A/C sells every ticket available even after upping their plane size.
