Flair Hiring

Flair is hiring both DECs and FO's as they expand.

For anyone looking to head home it might be an opportunity. FO start around $60,000 Captains at almost $110,000. 85 hours MAX per month and any days not flying, GS etc ate OFF days so most guys getting 13-15 days off a month. OT paid at double time.

True, but they are nice guys

Flair is a nice relaxing place to work. Great people to fly with in general, and expanding. Yes, the airplanes are old, there are many late flights, and the schedule gets changed quite a bit. That would be expected when you are using old airplanes in winter time in Canada, but it is also because of the big expansion and lack of experienced people for many of the positions in the office. it is true that money owed for overtime and call-outs has not been paid, but again, it's because they do not have the people to keep track of all the hours and changes. Since the headquarters has been changed from Kelowna to Edmonton, many of the office staff elected to remain where they had their houses and families. It's supposed to be automated in the crew scheduling program soon.

They're okay to work for.

Surely they can't be that picky. The well is dry and there's a major drought coming. If you are qualified to be in the left seat of a 737 and are not a industry reject, I wouldn't worry about it. Might be a good idea to brush up on important stuff like, Vmcg and the 4 stages of departure. In my experience with high performance jets, they are not impressed if you say, "minimum controllable airspeed on the ground for Vmcg"...might want to get the exact definition and totally understand it. I've done many interviews of pilots and they tend to think buzz words cover their knowledge. Just gives the interviewer an avenue to ask even deeper questions. Good luck. Also, I think the DFO is an EX-TC Inspector, so knowing which CAR's relate to you wouldn't be a bad refresher.

I've heard from a buddy at Flair that they will be upgrading their entire fleet to 737NGs in the next year or two.

I will poke around a bit. I am in a position that I can find out pretty easy. Would make sense if they are profitable. plus way more NG sims around for training not to mention the uplift.

Not my opinion. Just the general opinion based on numerous posts on the forums. Same drivel being dished out here as well.

I have a couple of friends there and they seem content, as of now.
