    Pilot Fatigue

    This thing has a maybe two months tops, before people completely disregard all the “Guidance” being put out there. Masks on planes will probably be the only mandate left.

    United outsources jobs, offers triple pay

    No, but I suppose if you started a brand new airline, it could happen.

    United outsources jobs, offers triple pay

    Your years of service at the airline don’t change when you change equipment or seat. A 5 year 320 CA who is forced to downgrade to FO would be paid at the 5 year 320 FO rate. A 5 year 320 CA who becomes a 5 year 737 CA would be paid at the 5 year 737 CA rate. It doesn’t matter pay wise how...

    Why would a billionaire donate his money to pilots and airlines? 😆

    United outsources jobs, offers triple pay

    The pilots who took early retirement are not coming back. They are no longer on the seniority list. They are getting paid around 60% of the salary that they were making when they took the early out. Most of the guys were within 3 years of mandatory retirement, so there wouldn’t be a practical...

    United outsources jobs, offers triple pay

    The airlines in the US didn’t furlough. They were paid with taxpayer dollars to keep the pilots on the property. There was a huge drop off in the need for pilots when we were in the middle of 2020, and several airlines offered early retirement packages. That reduced the number of pilots on...

    Changing career towards aviation - how hard is it to get into the US Market.

    For Dan T. You obviously are motivated, and that will serve you well. You also need to plan out your goals. You don’t just go from zero to airline job. It takes time and planning. The good people on this site can guide you through the things that you will need to do each step in your...

    United outsources jobs, offers triple pay

    I’ve been off since the 19th of December. I’m scheduled to go back to work on the 14th of January. I have been called every morning, starting on the 20th of December by an automated system asking me to fly for double pay. They obviously need pilots to pick up trips. The omicron variant is...

    Suggestion for viral debrief?

    This might be something common in European or Asian countries, but in my experience flying here in the US, you pretty much just explain to ATC what is issue you are having and what assistance you require. Obviously if you are short on time and are super busy dealing with your emergency, you...

    FAA issues AD because 5G can interfere with RadAlt

    Sometimes it seems that so much is made of so little. I was only inquiring if the term “Yanks” was being used as a pejorative. I don’t know if it was, and I really just asking.

    You talk about “Yanks”. Sounds like you don’t particularly like us.

    Potentially intentional crash for clicks?

    I’m a trusting guy, but this thing was staged from beginning to end. The oohs and aahs weren’t even believable. I don’t really care that he trashed his airplane for clicks and a promotion for some kind of credit card wallet thing. If he didn’t get enough cash to pay for the cost of that...
