Default Anyone from Van-coo-ver?

Yup, I'll be joining the Cannucks sometime in September (h3ll, it may be ALL of September) for work reasons.

http://www.cae.com/www2004/Press_Rel...l_ref277.shtml

In a nutshell, my company is taking over the airlines flight-training program (similar to the situation I do now with jetBlue). My boss has been asked to take the management position there, and duplicate our operations here over there. Only thing is, the new training center needs temporary staffing until all the new hires come online. So guess who volunteered to help

I live about 5 hours away up the coast.
Vancouver is real nice in September. I may even be there one weekend. Stay in touch and we may be able to get together for a beer and Whine.

On a good day I can see Vancouver from my place on the Island. I fly into YVR several times a month.

Who knows, I may even get a Contract near you in the next few months.......
Ask O'Neil if they need any Engineering project assistance.

What kind of experience do you have Paul, and can it apply to flight simulators?

Bossman said those sites, Vancouver in particular, will be needing an almost entirely new crew. Only a few old goats are going to get hired on.

Paul, it would be great if you could get work up here. I will give O'Neil the message, maybe he has some leads. We are going to be heading down your way at for Christmas, actually, it will be on the way back up
