Doesn’t get any funnier.
Kinda my point. You guys and gals from Oz and New Zealand have driven the Canadian market into the ground. Enjoy the Karma.
When I was there I worked in places most Canadians did not want to work.
I got no negativity or feelings of animosity from the locals for me being a foreign pilot.
I am sure if the local had 1500 hours then there wouldn't be an issue (most "decent" contracts require said amount)
Just filling the void.
I believe it is harder to get visas into Canada now.
That being said,If it wasn't for OZ/NZ pilots ability to work overseas then there would be a hell of a lot of Bell Mediums being flown by foreigners during the Australian summer.
Progression (to mediums/twins) isn't really a well accepted word by a majority of operators in the Australian industry........
Not BS at all. The reason some companies would hire you guys is you would work for less and longer than most Canadian pilots would.(Don't forget we have to live here after you leave) Also saw a guy from NZ work in the hangar for free till his TFW permit came in. Both he and the company broke the law. Then work for free (Company made them) on their 5 days off to refresh their duty days. So I've seen a ton of abuse from Aussies and Kiwis. Fact!
