On what schedule? Slave ship 76? Indentured servant 72? Certainly not even close on the 7-7 unless you live in after-midnight central. Tall tales of massive hourly overtime only apply to the handful in the Bubba Club.1-If you're a G-V, Global and/or Challenger captain, you could make $220K without even working overtime
right they should shoot everyone over 65, save tons in SSN payments, they could fly with me and get tales of flying the T-34B and the T-28 in the 60'sMany of those greedy, selfish dying dinosaurs are not going anywhere.
1-If you're a G-V, Global and/or Challenger captain, you could make $220K without even working overtime
2- who are they going to tell their effing stories about flying the T-38s back in the 70s? Their wives Their wives don't wanna hear that s**t. So they come to work
3- aviation is their identity. You take this away from them, and they crumble
Just talked to a guy, he's 69 years old. He's gonna "wait for the Global 7000, get on line 76, work lots of overtime, and shoot for $300K his last years with the company"
I HATE texting. Do it all the time on CAP activities, but it's much more efficient in my opinion to just have a conversation than texting back and forth to get something resolved.They don't even do that, they are too busy texting, sitting waiting for freight, the guy never stopped texting.
Nailed itMeanwhile, back at the retirement ranch, the majority of those who take the out will be smart, still-capable people who realize this job isn't the be-all, end-all of their existence and either retire gracefully or use the money to soften the financial impact of a lateral move. The pilots who MOST need to take the offer and finally get OUT of the cockpit will be the least likely to take it.
It happened with the flight attendants and it will happen again with the pilots.
Gotta do it no one else wants to, it is fun, the money is nice and the role of the mentor for the young guys is fulfilling. So life is good And if things work out you to may be an old toole some day:laugh:They don't even do that, they are too busy texting, sitting waiting for freight, the guy never stopped texting.
Their texting friends telling them what a incompetent old toole they have to fly with.
