|Erik's shot of a B767|
Yesterday, an equipment bid closed. We are hiring. In fact, I''ll be teaching a class of 12 mid June. The equipment bid was not huge, but we need 17 B777 captains, 2 A330 captains and 5 B767 captains plus 13 Airbus 320 captains based in Toronto. But it's the heavier equipment I'm looking at...translating to at least 24 slots.
My standing bid has me requesting B767 captain "zero from the bottom." Yes, you can qualify your bid. You can even move bases. But there is another saying, "be careful what you bid for."
Well the last bid saw me 345 numbers away from saying "heavy" again. I started at AC saying "heavy" (over 300,000 pounds i.e A340) as a cruise pilot, I also got to say it as a A340/A330 F/O but the wallet really thickens when I say it as a captain. LOL
Had my medical today which was two days away from me turning into a pumpkin.
I get to keep my job another six months!!!
