Title: Where will I be stationed
Post by: unknown198 on March 07, 2019, 17:40:29
Hi,
I'm wondering where I would be stationed if I were to join the air force and become a pilot?

Chipunks left the inventory decades ago. We've gone through two batches of Musketeers and one of Slingsby Fireflies since then, and are now on Grobs. Instructors on those are civ, though.

King Airs are also in Portage for mult-engine training.

None of these Instructor postings are open to first-tour Pilots, though.

SAR (Old Hercs, Buffs, Cormorants, and Griffons) are in Comox, Cold Lake, Winnipeg, Trenton, Bagotville, Goose Bay, and Gander.

Is there not also still 440 squadron in Yellowknife flying Twin Otters for transport and SAR?

Yes. I thought that I'd forgotten somebody, but couldn't remember whom.

So I didn’t do too bad! :)
