It’s certainly cheaper than YYZ or YVR. If Jazz is such a great deal why is the only incentive is the eventual flow to AC ? What happens in a couple of years when that tap is turned off and you have pilots locked in a 12+ years contract with little flow or upgrades ? What’s the 5-6 years FO scale ? Are you going to convince us, like Capt Kirk, that the regional lifestyle is the best and you’re going to turn down AC because the Jazz bennies are so much better than Big Red ?

If the music stops at Jazz, you can guarantee F/O's will stampede for the exit faster than a scalded cat.

If the music stops, there's nowhere to stampede to. Maybe another industry that won't be hit as hard in the next recession.

Jazz will have a lot of very cheap FOs stuck with nowhere to go.

I've been a captain on the highest time pc12 in the world for 90 years in the north and it worked for me 90 years ago so it must be true today!

Vermont I have been thinking about your questions and remarks about throwing bags and such and looking back I guess it started in 1964 when I started bush flying in Northern Ontario on floats, before that I was flying Super Cubs, Stearmans and Piper Pawnee doing aerial application.

But for sure if you feel you can give me advice on how to be a better pilot I never turn down good advice.

Sounds like jealous is guiding what you say. Plenty of people would like to have some kind of guarantee since the music will stop eventually.

Are you unable to consider people in situations that aren't your own? If you have a partner with a good career, it'd be extremely selfish to say hey leave your friends and family and come to some rural ass town with me for an unknown time!

I couldn't imagine telling my wife to just give up on her career or do long distance for years!

Sounds like you've had a fun and fulfilling career!

All I wanted to point out to people here is some peoples situations are different and that's often forgotten. I have no advice for you, since you sound as level headed as they get!

You don’t even have your CPL. Try focusing on that instead of that shiney jet syndrome, you might learn a thing or two from a few people who walked the walk.

Your display of ignorance and hubris will certainly make you a favourite amongst skippers. Guess what ? You might not get a local base, you might have to commute, you might have to stay 19-20 days a month on reserve in a crashpad, you might want to touch base with your wife about that.

That Isn't really relevant. I've worked in a few fields, and I see this sort of thing a lot (it is human nature after all) Hell, pretty much everyone I know who got a degree flipped their shit when OSAP was giving bigger discounts. OMG those kids won't learn to appreciate their education if they aren't working 2 min wage jobs while trying to study. Meanwhile in the rest of the world it's pretty rare to work while going to school.

I understand there are risks like moving and I'm in no rush to a shiny jet, I'd happy fly a q400 :lol: All I'm really chasing is less uncertainty and QOL. The industry is has so many ups and downs, why would you expose yourself to more?

If somebody's wife has a cushy job in a big city, I bet they wouldn't be too happy about spending that much money on their husband to get a crap paying job. Especially with the risk of a possible recession and career stagnation at such a crappy pay rate.

Return on investment just isn't there.

Plus it's investmenting in your spouce to be gone in a hotel room for 1/3rd of the time and unavailable to look after the kids while she's at her cushy job making the real money.

Well there r no shortcuts, and like it or not, somebody offering to give you a limo ride to the the local airport, and help you put on your sunglasses before going to work, is let's just say, pretty rare in this field. Aviation is not like any other business.

. should not even interact with people so out of it.

Actually i'm kind of annoyed now. How about going up north and doing what is necessary to become a better, more complete aviation professional? You know what bothers professional pilots? Amateurs that don't take it the job seriously, putting our lives at risk.

I am optimistic ayseven, I still believe that ignorance can be cured through education.

Maybe vermont will learn through osmosis.

Who the hell is .?

And If your amateur jab is pointed at me, mortgaging my own house to pay for training seems to be taking things pretty damn seriously.

There's truths in life and they are, you pay for everything (either in time or money) And the most valuable currency is time.

The Stockholm syndrome everyone has about the north is hilarious. If 250 hour FO's was "putting lives at risk" that shit would never happen in Europe where you almost need a permit to fart.

Honey ! I’m home.
Good news ! I re-mortgaged the house and our kids future so I can buy a 150 000$ job that will allow me to fly a shiny jet for 40k a year.

Why yes I’ll be gone 19 days a month while you have to stay here alone, work and take care of the kids. But you’ll get to tell your friends at work that your husband works for AIR CANADA express.

Why yes I could have taken a local job on a Kingair or a PC12 that would have me be home everyday and paid twice as much but honey, on the RJ I can Instagram #propsareforboats!
Yeah I’d be more worried about Tyrone and the homeboys taking care of your old lady at this point ....

Who the hell is .?
My real name is . . and I have been posting on Avcanada since the forum first started.

By using my real name I feel it gives my opinions and advice about flying more credibility.

One thing about my flying career I sure never suffered either mentally or monetarily that is for sure.

In fact by the end of my over fifty years of flying for a living I was paid very well for my time, very well.

As an example I operated a business giving advanced flying instruction and my hourly rate was 250 Euro per flight hour.

Who the hell is .????? I will leave that one for once in my life. He has more flying experience on wheels, floats and flying boats, in his little finger than I, and probably you, will ever have, so his words mean something to me - and he does have a rather good vocabulary, if I may say so.

It is not a question of suffering; it is about learning to take ownership of the airplane, and intangibles that you need to see for yourself. I can tell you one thing: it was NOT suffering. If somebody does not have to, or want to, go to where they can learn more in a month, than a year in a city, well, that is their choice. Everyone has their own life path.

I can guarantee that things are learned about flying airplanes, that you won't get to see down here in the city. You might not think loading a DC 3 full of dynamite, before getting in and flying it, or knowing the weight of the most common generators used in mining camps, or that you can fit an entire moose, antlers and all, into a C206, are useful life skills, but you would be surprised. There is nobody there to help you load that drill pipe; you are on your own; then you go flying in the most beautiful scenery in the word. I have been extremely lucky to have done all that, met, and worked with such interesting people (except for the bushed miners - they could be pretty weird) and it helps you as a person to know you can count on yourself. I am beginning to feel sorry for the people who do not want that.

I do not think it is a life for older, married people, at the beginning. You need to be young and full of vigour - although Mr . seems pretty full of it these days. There is zero security, and as soon as you plan something, boom, you are off somewhere else. That IS the flying business.
