Job Detail (EXPIRED): Pilot (Canada)

More AVIATION AND PILOT JOBS (last updated Sat, Nov 28, 2015 at 02:30 EST)
POSITION: Pilot (Canada)

Being part of Air Canada is to become part of an iconic
Canadian symbol, recently ranked the best Airline in North
America. Let your career take flight by joining our diverse
and vibrant team at the leading edge of passenger

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.


To fly for Air Canada, pilots must meet certain basic

1500 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 Airline Transport Pilot Licence (ATPL), 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:

University degree or college diploma
Aviation College degree or diploma
Commercial or military flight experience
Jet and/or glass cockpit experience

We are aware that coaching programs are being offered
by third party companies on Air Canada's pilot interview
questions. Please be advised that Air Canada does not
endorse any agencies that prepare candidates for our
interviews. Candidates who arrive for an interview with
prepared answers provided by such agencies are easily
recognized and will be assessed accordingly. Interview
questions are changed at regular intervals.
Providing 'canned' answers will likely result in a poor
assessment of your suitability as an Air Canada pilot.

At Air Canada, we want to fly higher when it comes to
employment equity. We therefore encourage applications
from Aboriginal peoples, women, members of a visible
minority and persons with a disability.
