Where will I be stationed
« on: March 07, 2019, 16:40:29 »
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?
Pacificsm is doctrine fostered by a delusional minority and by the media, which holds forth the proposition it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.

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

So I didn’t do too bad! :)
