    schedules at AWAC

    The lines for April have taken a sudden turn for the worse. Two 3 day trips back to back not commutable at either end. Two day trips not commutable at either end. Days off not commutable at either end. Mostly 12 days off. My belief is the company is retaliating against us for refusing their...

    NWA Small Jet TA

    I'll tell ya. The only thing a flow through program has resulted in from what I've seen is furloughs and career FO positions.

    That's incorrect. Yes it does cancel the stick pusher completely. Who told you that?

    Lots to consider....

    There's at least one axe grinding instructor at EVERY airline. You just happen to get the one at your's. A few years back at ACA about half the instructors were axe grinders. My experience has been that usually the abusive instructors are the ones that are bitter because they never made it to...

    Remember, you can disable the stick pusher by pressing and holding the auto pilot disconnect switch on the control yoke.

    Vacation ideas

    Isn't Colombia one of the most dangerous countries to visit right now? Other than that, I have 1 week off this year and I wanted to go to Italy but sinse I'd only get a few good days there I decided instead to take my wife to Moab, Utah this May to see the canyon country.

    CHQ to buy CMR???

    That would be pretty low on Delta's part after all the other crap they've been pulling. If that we're true, I don't know that I'd even want to bid on any of their flying if I was an express carrier.

    Cracked Windshield

    I kind of wonder how one can actually determine from inside if it's the middle or the outer layer that's cracked. QRH: Tap on windscreen. Windscreen pops off. Yes. Land at nearest suitable airport No...

    Cracked Windshield

    The CRJ's windscreen is three layers. Usualy it's the middle layer that cracks because that's the one that is heated. Never the less when it does happen it usualy shatters to the point where you cant' see out the window. I've never had it happen to me but I hear that it's a loud "bang" and...

    Duty Rig??

    Duty rig = per day Trip rig = Per trip

    Duty Rig??

    Not to create confusion but AWAC also has trip rigs at 4 to 1 which means that for every 4 hours you spend on the entire trip, you're paid 1 hour. This helps when you have two leg days within a four day trip.

    Anyone in the AWAC class starting Feb 20th?

    The thing to remember is that the parameters are constantly changing so it's difficult to determine how long upgrade time is. For some it will be shorter than others. I'd say right now for the new hires it will be anywhere from 2 to 3 years to upgrade. But that could change if attrition picks...

    skywest vs. air wisconsin

    Of course AWAC ownes 9% of USairways. How much does Skywest own of a major carrier? Skywest probably has more cash due to AWAC spending 125 million of it's own on USairways. But I don't think one's decision should be made on who has more cash anyway.
