- Total Time
Basically, u have to live within 10 miles of yip?
exactly, you have to move or get a crash pad. Remember I am only the messenger, an hour to the ops counter would make it a much better place to work, but we might miss a trip and in this business that is a crime against nature. IFL and Kalitta I want a 20 minute call out, and they are having trouble finding pilot now daysYou can't live in toledo and possibly be at the ops counter in 30 minutes.
so you are tethered to your residence for about 20 days a month, right? That residence has got to be close to kyip.
im not digging on it, just trying to understand
It appears the dc9 pay scale is the same for fo's and cpt's...is that right? I can get 13 days off a month on the dc9? So if I fly a trip, return to yip, start crew rest is that considered a day off? If not, it sounds like a good deal. How much are u starting dc9 fo's at? Thanks
Ford truck factory is big user of just in time parts. It is also located just about on the center line of the auto parts supply chain corridor than runs from CYHM to MMMX. So there is good chance of getting another trip either to the boarder or back to KYIP, so airplanes hang around a while waiting for the next tripWhy is JUS always in SDF?
Couldn't agree more, but I am only a messenger, maybe if we cannot find enough pilots they may move to something like that to make it more attractive.If you guys want pilots make it a 7 on, 7 off schedule or a
make it a 2 hour callout with the next up crew on airport standby. I really don't know your business but on paper that seems easy to do. most pilots aren't time building, they want their next job to be a career. I can't see myself leaving buckeye land to live in Detroit. Monroe Michigan maybe, perrysburgh, Ohio even better.
