Canada : Bearskin Lake Air Service signs deal for Jazz Aviation Pathways Program.

Jazz Aviation announced the signing of a deal with Thunder Bay, Ontario-based Bearskin Lake Air Service.

The deal will make the carrier the twelfth organization in the Jazz Aviation Pathways Program.

Steve Linthwaite, Vice President, Flight Operations, Jazz, said, 'Our Jazz APP program was introduced 10 years ago, in 2007, and now a decade later our commitment to developing a solid career path for pilots in Canada has never been stronger. We're very pleased to welcome Bearskin to the Jazz APP and acknowledge the calibre of pilots at their organization.'

The deal has two pillars. It will first see Jazz refering to Bearskin, high quality graduates who have progressed through the Jazz Aviation Pathways Program at our affiliated aviation colleges and universities. Those graduates would have a chance to move to first officer positions at Bearskin.

The Jazz Aviation Pathways Program will also offer a direct career path opportunity for eligible Bearskin pilots to transition to first officer positions at Jazz. The career pathway could then continue for those Bearskin pilots interested in future opportunities to fly for Air Canada through Jazzs preferential interview process (Pilot Mobility Arrangement) with the mainline carrier.
