New fleets are like that; it allows easier crew pairing within a very small fleet and allows captains to get experienced in the aircraft before introducing FOs to the fleet.I heard the XLS+ is gong to be an all captain fleet for a month.
Is that true? If so why does it work that way?
plus, the quicker you get the PIC to 100 hours in type the sooner you get a crew off high minns.New fleets are like that; it allows easier crew pairing within a very small fleet and allows captains to get experienced in the aircraft before introducing FOs to the fleet.
Agreed 100%. And all those little QOL extras above and beyond industry standard are extended to the entire pilot group which is about 1/3 larger than it needs to be..........pilots having a life, family, safe scheduling, quality training, vacations, sick days, etc.
Never once have I stated that I wanted pilots to work for any less than what they deserve. What I object to is a wage that is disproportionate to the revenue of the company and a CBA that does not let the company run as a free market entity.This speaks volumes as to what kind of person your are, and what kind of business or flight department you would (do) run.
Since when is quality training, sick time, vacation, and time off (you know days free of duty, not just days you don't have a charter planned) considered "little QOL extras"?
For me and most professionals I know these are not extras but requirements of a professional career.
Management wants slaves. I am thankful I don't work for you.
Maybe you should go into the farming business, we have a fair share of illegals out there your could deny those "little QOL extras" too.
I also agree 100%, we could work 24/7/365 and make a lot more, but why would I want to?
