  1. Just wondering if you could clarify on what you mean by hired and place in the industry? I have seen lots of new low time pilots get hired in the last few years, but they are for non flying labour jobs. If they are placed do you mean they are actually flying building PIC hours and making revenue money? I just find it hard to believe that 80% of the newly trained pilots are flying, from what I have seen the last 5 years or so.
  2. They didn't have horses in Houston back in the day. Maybe a canoe and there own 2 feet that's about it.
  3. Well I have taken it from many Employer's over the years. Working long days doing 6-8-10 week tours in the cold canadian winter temperatures while the owners are golfing or sitting on some beach somewhere. All I got out of it was a bunch of unpaid overtime no family life and the reputation that they could count on me to get the job done. No matter what kind of lube you use, it still hurts the employee's while the owners are getting away with fraud.
  4. Why not challenge the employer? The employee has the right to. So what if you get fired at least you stood up for something. Maybe the employer will get fined or shut down by the Canadian Labour Code until they can improve the way they handle business. There are way too many operators in this business that take advantage of there employees (especially lower time guy's/gal's). Threats of blacklisting only go so far. I've seen many of so called blacklist people get hire because there the only ones with enough "hours" and "credentials" to do the job. Because we all know that operators are very r
  5. Why do they ask this? Would you move if you were getting paid less than minimum wage to work 6 or 7 day's a week? And only a remote chance to fly. I am sure lots of people would move if they were paid a fair wage and some sort of schedule.
  6. Just get a mac, partition the hard drive and install windows that you had from your last computer. It won't cost you any more and you get the best of both worlds. I have done it to mine. It takes about 20 min to install everything. Once it is set-up you can choose which operating system you want to run at the start-up. Everything will run fine on it.
  7. The other question is why didn't they put it on the other side of the machine, so its the same side as the pilot. It would make it so much easier to keep an eye on your low time re-fuelers to make sure that they put the cap back on.
  8. If you guy's don't want to go to a dry camp let me know I will go, I need the hours.
