I'm actually surprised Jazz (theoretically) allows someone with no jet experience to go left seat on a plane they have never flown. You could be a Seneca student, spend 3 years on the right seat of a Dash 8, get your PIC some way or another to get your AAs signed off and then theoretically upgrade to left seat RJ
It has happened.

In the middle 1990’s AC laid off pilots that were hired late 1980’s. Many of these pilots were second officers at AC and prior to that had no jet time or no command time over 12,500 lbs.

After the layoff, many came back as CRJ Captains.

Not ideal, but it happens. The result could be 2 pilots up front with as little as a grand total of 100 hours of combined jet experience (all accumulated under supervision).
Not quite correct. Jazz, or Air Ontario as it was at the time, did not have CRJ's during the period you mentioned.

I wasn’t talking about Jazz. I was talking about AC in 1995 when the CRJ’s first arrived. AC did not have any minimum experience requirements for left seat in the CRJ. Seniority and licence was all that was required to attempt upgrade.

As for Jazz, both SKY and GGN have minimum experience requirements for the left seat of a jet. Jazz does not. Seniority and licence for upgrade opportunity.

That is correct SkyPirate. And beyond that timeflies is still not completely accurate... not that it matters.

Because they’re finally running out of applicants.

Hi guys I would like to know how long it takes after all the process with the medical examination and the background check to get a response from Jazz ?
Thanks

This is absolutely not true. It’s based on personnel requirements.

Out of curiosity, how do the 4 Jazz pilot bases break down in terms of # of pilots at each ? And which bases have the largest # of RJs, or Q400s or Dash Classics at each ?

All numbers subject to change as base movement, upgrades & reductions are still on going from the Jan 2018 Bid:
Planes and # of pilots are changing it seems every 6 months on the bids.....seem the company is trying to "shake things up" I believe (IMO)
Also numbers are rough ball park.....and that's total pilots on type per base

Rowdy don’t you work at Jazz? You should know we’re very overstaffed right now, especially with the Voyageur LOA being announced.

It’s not a case of running out of applicants.

The voyageur LOA is there because they simply cannot find people for the african contracts with the UN. There is specific time requirements for those and not many dash and rj pilots around looking for work. Very easy to use a bunch of your own..

We have a huge number of people in the training environment with a lack of sim availability.. That came right from the source. While we do carry a significant amount of extra crews right now, that will change very quickly in the fall when AC continues to take from us. A memo came out today about it. I also imagine it will be a BUSY summer and the extra crews will be needed. Even More so if WJ does move to strike.

Almost all RJ. I think there was 8 or 9 in the class and 5 or 6 of them got RJ. 1 Q for sure but I don’t know about the rest. Sorry for the not very specific numbers

Yes there was an October 1st class. 8 I believe and all RJ and Q. Not sure where.
There will be a Nov and December class from what I've heard. As for next year sounds like 150-200 pilots to be hired. Rough estimate based on attrition to AC.
