They won't. I remember calling and asking that specific question a little over a year ago.

No they won't, it's a no shot. The minimums for the last class was 1000 total and 200 multi. A guy I knew had 934 total and over 300 multi and they wouldn't accept it.

If someone walks your resume in, make certain that person is in good standing with the company, kind of like that anywhere though, right?

Aloha and much success to you.

What's pay like over there? Is upgrade still happening relatively quick?

First year FO is 21.58, second year is 26.76 or something around there. Negotiations are currently in progress for the Q400 pay scale. The committee is also going to negotiate the 100 scale to increase the pay there as well.

Don't count your $$ just yet. It's still to be determined what will be negotiated. It may well be that, if the pilot group decides on a two-scale pay system, the -100 won't be touched. That contract is still good for another two years. We'll have to wait and see there are no guarantees either way.

And to answer the previous question, WP has never, EVER had "commensurate with experience" in their minimums. If you don't have 1000, they won't even take your resume. Hard core.

they stopped waiving the mins when they got rid of the twin otters. since then they have stuck to their published mins pretty well.

Thats right, I stand corrected, the 100 pay scale is good for 2 more years, they are negotiating pay for FO and CA on the 400. And yup its hardcore.

Seems I cant get anything right on these posts. Im always being corrected. Oh well.

Everyone is entitled to an opinion and where there are applicable facts to bolster the anecdotal premise, it must be presented in the appropriate forum.

-in other words-

It's 'cause there are so many friggin subject matter experts on Island Air, and sometimes I wonder about me!;)

Oh come on, Dash, You know better than that, my foamy-loving friend. One example comes to mind immediately.

EVERYTHING is waiverable and commensurate with who you know and who you blow.

true.. however, i cannot think of anyone they waived mins for after they were only a dash 8 operation (not saying it didnt happen, i didnt monitor the fng's flight times as they arrived). i know they have fluctuated the mins wildly in relation to their desperation for pilots a few times. i havent seen them drop it below 800/200 since being a dhc8 only operation.

is this semantics? is the one you're thinking of a waiving or a dropping of the mins? the way WP was operating on a few hiring classes it kind of blurred any kind of line there might have been between these.

hugh.. PM me on the details. also please PM me with the details of your research in LOS we talked about. :)
