Flight Operations Pilot

Whether a Captain, a First Officer or Relief Pilot, an Air Canada pilot's number one priority is to conduct each flight safely with due consideration to passenger comfort and on-time performance.

While the typical work month consists of approximately 80 hours of flying, pilots spend many additional hours on such ground duties as preparing flight plans, readying the aircraft for departure, and completing post-flight reports. A day's work may vary from a long-range international flight to a sequence of shorter domestic flights. Reserve duty, in which the pilot is "on call", may also be assigned.

Air Canada pilots operate out of one of the four crew bases: Montreal, Toronto, Winnipeg or Vancouver. Base preferences are awarded in seniority so pilots must be willing to relocate as assigned. Pilots typically begin their career as a First Officer on domestic aircraft or as a Relief Pilot on long-range, international flights.

Job Requirements

To fly for Air Canada, pilots must meet certain basic requirements:

1000 hours of fixed wing flying time
Completion of schooling to the university entrance level. Ability to pass the Air Canada and Transport Canada medical and visual acuity requirements for a Category 1 medical certificate.
Canadian Commercial Pilot licence, current Instrument Rating and Multi-Engine endorsement.
Canadian citizenship or landed immigrant status.
Pilot applications far exceed job vacancies, so preference is given to candidates with qualifications beyond the basic requirements. Examples of desirable additional qualifications include, but are not limited to:

Canadian Airline Transport Pilot licence
University degree or college diploma
Aviation College diploma
Military or commercial flight experience
Jet and/or glass cockpit experience
Additional language(s)

In accordance with the rules of the pension plan and the Air Canada Buy-back Policy, the pilot is given the opportunity to buy back his/her military service in the Air Canada Pension Plan - Pilots. Some conditions apply and the pilot has to apply for the buy-back within one year of the date of employment with Air Canada.

Effective October 15, 2007, the buy-back is at no cost to the Company, it is entirely paid by the pilot. The cost is determined by Air Canada using an age-related scale in accordance with its buy-back policy and depends on the actuarial assumptions applicable at the time of application.

Air Canada is currently interviewing candidates who meet these requirements.  If you are interested in a career as an Air Canada pilot, please submit and maintain your profile using the link at the end of this document.

Effects of Recession on Aviation Industry Careers

As the Indian economy has been booming in the last few years, the India Aviation industry was expanding too. There were new budget airlines and private players like Dr Vijay Mallya's KingFisher Airlines Ltd coming in to play and thus making the public sector Air India and Indian Airlines more competitive in the process. As there were more flights coming in to business, the number of job opportunities in the industry has also gone up. Students started signing up for courses like airline Pilot's, flight attendant's, ground crew etc. The job growth rate was good. The salary and perks were great as well. Every one was pretty happy.

Then the US economic recession came. India was hoping that it would not be affected by the global economic recession. But those hopes are not found to be true. Slowly the effects of recession have reached India too. And it affected the aviation industry of India too. As the cash starved managements started looking for cost cutting measures, lay offs started to come in to action. Some people have lost their jobs already. The new recruitments are going at a slow rate. For the time being, the market is not great for the aviation industry in India. It is the same case scenario for the rest of the world as well.

But this is going to stay the same way for a short term only. As the fundamentals of the Indian economy are pretty strong, the economy is going to get back on a growing trend soon. It may take another three months or six months before you will see the change in the economy. But the economy is going to go back up again. By that time the jobs lost in the recent recession will be compensated.

Right now, it is a sober moment for the aviation industry in India. But it would come back up on its feet and be on the run again soon. Any one who lost their jobs in the aviation industry in the recent recession should consider this situation as a chance to refurbish their skills. Going back to school and get some more certifications while the market is running low would be a smart idea. Polish your skills and it will keep you in great shape once the economy will be back on its feet. Once the Indian economy is back on the run again, any additional skills you learned while the economy is dragging could be a great asset for you.

There is some good news already for the job seekers as Air India has started recruitment process for cabin crew. This is probably happening only in India and that should be looked at as a reason for India's aviation industry's financial strength.

We believe that for
Pessimistic its Aviation recession
and for
Optimistic it is still an Opportunity.

British Airways and Last major Aviation Recession

Over the past decade or so, British Airways has evolved from a loss making, state-owned national carrier into a customer focused, publicly listed, and consistently profitable airline. This transformation, a testament to a clear vision and a strong management team, has been achieved against a turbulent operating environment.

The air travel business is highly sensitive to economic cycles. British Airways reacted quickly and effectively to the last major recession which was precipitated by the Gulf War. So, while the airline industry as a whole lost GBP 10 billion during the period, which is more than its total combined profits since commercial aviation began in 1947, British Airways remained profitable.

The airline industry is a global business. British Airways is the world's largest international passenger carrier, flying 36 million people to 194 scheduled destinations in 89 countries in 1994. But cross-border ownership and landing rights are tightly controlled and in order to expand its global presence, British Airways has developed partnerships through airline investments in America, Australia, France, and Germany and through non-equity franchise links in the UK.

While recognising that British Airways has been successful in the past, it is dangerous to assume that current strategies will remain valid in an increasingly complex and changing business environment. British Airways is capital intensive, operating a fleet of 293 jets with long-term commitments to some 53,000 staff. Management must be able to recognise and interpret external events so that any major shifts in the environment which make current strategies vulnerable are anticipated and possible responses formulated. The airline cannot rely solely on quick reactions.

Given the immediacy of the airline business, however, it is difficult for managers to tear themselves away from the day-to-day running of the operation to take a longer-term view. The existing planning processes, the budget and the business plan look at the coming year and the next three years respectively. They tend to reinforce the assumption that the future will not vary significantly from the present, and plans tend to focus on operational improvements. A process for developing and testing strategies in light of future uncertainty was missing.

Making it Happen

British Airways' Chief Economist, DeAnne Julius, proposed the use of scenarios to the Chairman's Committee in February 1994. Because the expected benefits were somewhat intangible the decision was made to treat the exercise as an "experiment" to see if the process was suitable for use within the company.

The exercise was divided into two phases: scenario development and scenario workshops. Each phase was led by a senior member from the Corporate Strategy department. The aim was to link the scenario workshops to the business plan from April 1995.

Phase 1: Scenario Development

The first phase of the project was led by the Chief Economist. The development team included eight staff from the Corporate Strategy, Government Affairs, and Marketing departments, and an external consultant. Work began in mid March 1994 and was completed by the end of October 1994. Individuals' time spent on the project varied with no-one working full time. An equivalent of 2 man-years was expended.

In an effort to gain top level support and guidance for the project a “Halo Group” was established. This group of 14 directors and senior managers represented the major departments in the company. Their advice was solicited following the completion of each of the main tasks in the project.

The first task was to determine the significant external issues facing the airline. Over 40 individual interviews with manager throughout British Airways were conducted, each lasting between 1 and 2 hours. Five group interviews were held with staff specialists covering topics such as information technology and air transport regulation. Several interviews with academics, government officials and aircraft manufacturers were also completed. Most interviews were conducted by two development team members from a standard set of questions which had been designed in advance. Detailed notes were taken on the condition that the anonymity of participants would be maintained.

From the interview notes the development team were able to compose a story of the “Official Future” which summarised the working assumptions British Airways managers were making about the future environment and highlighted potential blind spots. The important external issues were identified and classified into three categories: predetermined elements (such as population growth), key uncertainties (issues of high importance and high uncertainty such as airline deregulation), and driving forces (such as changes in information technology which could fundamentally affect the airline business).

The development team spent a day debating the issues and 11 were selected for further research. It was not obvious from the interviews what the organising issue, around which the scenarios would be built, should be and so this was left until further research was completed. These findings were presented to the Halo Group who confirmed that the Official Future was an accurate reflection of thinking within the company and approved the preliminary research agenda.

The second task was to develop challenging yet plausible outcomes for each of the issues. This required an in-depth understanding of each issue and the identification of the critical events which would bring about each outcome. The issues were allocated among the development team who carried out desk-based research and consulted with experts to develop the arguments. The research was condensed into a briefing pack for each issue.

In mid June 1994 the development team spent two days sharing their findings and exploring inter-connections between the issues. A decision was made to focus on the relationship between growth and governance as the organising issue and to develop two stories, each covering a 10-year time horizon. Outputs from the 2 days, together with the briefing packs, formed the basis from which the stories were written.

Story writing began in July 1994. A full outline was drawn-up by three members of the development team. Draft scenario stories and presentation slides, which showed the main points pictorially rather than as text, were produced. These went through several refinements as they were tested on fellow team members and other experts, and included a presentation to the Chairman’s Committee to secure their approval. To ensure a consistent style, the final versions of the stories were drafted by the external consultant and finalised by the Chief Economist. Writing was completed by mid-September 1994 and approved by the Halo Group.

Whilst the stories were being written, the numerical data on economic growth, passenger traffic and aircraft supply data was produced. Historical data was retrieved, and models were built to determine how the data would be affected by the events in each story. It was decided that at the end of the 10-year period overall world economic growth levels would be similar in both scenarios. This was to avoid a high case – low case dichotomy, which the team felt, would not stretch thinking. However, the “boom and bust" economic cycles in one scenario would lead to much higher passenger traffic demand than the slow, steady economic growth and increased product substitution of the second scenario.

Dear Fellow Pilots,

I am a Professional Pilot with more then 8  years experience of Flying on 10 different types of Air crafts in 14 different countries with accident free flying record. I started my flying career from Skycabs    [ Colombo ] and worked for many Airlines Training Companies from different parts of the world. 

We have trained more then 350 Pilots who are now flying world wide. I am a member of the Aircraft Owners & Pilots Association [ USA], Royal Society of Aeronautics [ UK], Delhi Flying Club, Aeronautical Society of India, MP Flying Club Indore, Aeronautical Research Society.

I am a frequent flyer on AA, Air India, Air Canada, British Airways, Cathey Pacific, Delta Airlines, Emerites, Ethihad, Jet Airways, Kingfisher and many more. These all Airlines halped me to visit more then 14 different countries. 

I  came back from Canada and London on an Invitation of Govt  of Canada for Mission To Canada.  I am so Thankfull to Mr Vittal of Govt of Canada and Mr  Wayne Gouveia VP of the  Air Transport Association Of Canada  (ATAC)  without whom's lot of help and Guidance  the Mission would not be possible. 

Now something on my personal front:

I like to travel, collect coins and stamps and explore new avenues  and possibilities and turn them to my advantage. For me my friends are my biggest assets.  I still miss my Cow Boy friends and their  hospitility. For me these Cow Boys are more fashionable and Smart  guys then any Airline or corporate Pilots. 

I have a small Farm House [ Asiatic AgroTech Research Center ]  at Gram Gunawad, Dist Dhar Madhya Pradesh India where We grow medicinal plants and herbs. We are also into organic farming (which apparently is the latest fad) of wheat and soyabeans.

I love challenging jobs, that no Pilot would venture into, Flying an Aircraft on a scheduled route daily is just not my cup of tea. Nor can I just sit and make a software for flight simulator like all other software companies make.

I am an explorer by nature and I know it comes with a price but for which I am always willing to pay. I do not fear the unknown but believe riding high on it.
