Help Feed the Pilots

AD circulated [re: Air Canada strike.]

It's just not right. Thousands of pilots in our very own country are living at or just below the six-figure salary line. And if that wasn't bad enough, many of them may go several weeks or months without a paycheque if they are forced by Air Canada management to strike.

But now you can help. For about five hundred dollars a day--that's less than the price of a 25" television set--you can help keep a pilot economically viable during their time of need.

Five hundred dollars a day may not seem like a lot of money to you, but to a pilot, it could mean the difference between a vacation fishing in Florida, or a Mediterranean cruise.

For you, five hundred dollars is nothing more than half a month's rent or mortgage payment. But, to a pilot, five hundred dollars a day will almost replace his or her salary. Five hundred dollars a day will enable the pilot to upgrade his or her home computer, but that new 100" television set, trade in the 6-month-old Lexus for a Ferrari, or enjoy a dinner (with Champagne) at the Mansion.

"How will I know I'm helping?"

Each month, you will receive a complete financial report on the crew member you sponsor. Detailed information about his or her stocks, bonds, pension and real estate holdings, will be mailed to your home. You will be able to watch your pilot's net worth grow.

"How will they know I'm helping?"

Your pilot will be told that he or she has a Special Friend within the Air Canada family that just wants to help. Although the pilot won't know your name, he or she will be able to make collect calls to your home via a special operator in case they need additional funds.

"I want to help."

In the event of a strike by Air Canada pilots, I would like to sponsor the crew member(s) listed below. I would like to sponsor (circle your selection):

                        *Please apply my donation
                         where it is most needed.
Please charge the account listed below $500.00 per day (or $600.00 per day for a B747-400 crew member) for the duration of the strike. Please send me a picture of the crew member I have sponsored, along with a set of "wings" and my very own SCOPE bags.
