Start ups for new Graduate Pilots.

Hello Folks. Shout out to all the mates out there to advice for applying to any airline for new graduate pilots. I have recently completed my CPL and MIFR. Open to relocation to any place. Anyone out there with some good suggestions would be very handy. Thanks.

Congratulations on the CPL/IFR
IT sounds like you are promoting those schools that claim they are offering airline jobs to newly minted CPL's with a MIFR. There are many posts that describe the reality and not what newly minted CPL-MIFR's wish to see.

If you had good training, you would have already have been given good career advice and would not need to post here.

I'll tell you what you may not have been told at your school.

You have happened to strike it lucky time wise when there now more jobs advertised than at any time in many decades.

You now have to decide what path you wish to take, it sounds like you are now expecting to send off a resume and climb into a right seat rather than the practical choices of Ramp, Floats, wheels or instructing.

Find out where the demand is highest right now in Canada. For instance, is Georgian looking for guys? If so, find out if they will type rate you on the B-1900 and ask what this would entail. If they don't, ask if you had one, would it help? If they say yes, ask for advice on where to get one? It's a round about way of saying that you are willing to pay for your PPC. They just might be willing to offer you a job that allows you to pay back the type rating over a period of time. However, be very clear that you are not willing to work for free. Every month there should be a paycheque for the work you've done. Once you get your foot in the door and your first IFR job then usually it becomes easier to find the next flying job and then the next etc.

Or, better yet, don't pay for your PPC. There is more hiring going on now for low timers in Canada than there has been for years. Not a bad time to knock on doors...and shake some hands...and in Calgary, you're within a day's drive of a good number of operators. Send off CVs, phone if the company doesn't say not to, and show up to talk to the CP/Ops Mgr. From Calgary, you have many, many operators not all that far away - could easily hit a few in N Alberta and over to SK in a few days.

Many companies require a bond or promisory note, but others do not. And you should never have to pay for training to work for a company.

Good luck

I think offering to pay for a type rating in Canada will get your cv in the bin
