Digital said:I would say that is a very true statement! Scheduling can only operate, as well as, they are managed. You don't follow the program.. you don't have a job. I would say that much of the scheduling departments problems exist with those who call the shots. So, no I don't get upset with scheduling. I realize that just like the military..they are only following orders. Maybe, things will change for the better with our next contract, but I'm surely not holding my breath over it!
Digital said:They are a very good company to work for
Gulp!!!!!Digital said:When I say I believe they are a good company to work for, I am speaking economically, as well as, a great bunch of guys who fly the line. Our guys flying the line each day is one reason this airline is thriving. I know we have problems, but most problems start with those at the top and trickle down from there. I think when you size us up with other airlines doing our same business we stack up somewhere in the middle. Connie is great at making money.. and thus we are not concerned that we won't have a pay check tomorrow. However, you and I both know the areas this company needs work. But as far as my overall opinion of Kalitta. I think it's as good a place to be right now as most. (At least in the type of work we're doing). Would you agree?
I know why the crj crashed. A couple of rookies tried to climb to 410 in an underpowered airplane and got to slow. I spent seven years at or above FL410. I don't remember seeing to many crj's up there. I wouldn't brag about your 5 out of 11 ace mark either. I seem to remember they gave us all the anwsers before the test. I think almost eveyone in my class got 100%. Oh tell your captains how scheduling owns you. I'm sure they will love your enthusiasm. I happen to know many of them personaly. It's pft type pukes like you who runined this industry for the rest of us. Where do they find suckers like you? A job fair or something? Many of the great people I have flown with at Kalitta air have endured tons of abuse from the scheduling department of this company. Not to mention the poor operations department as well. The crewmembers are the ones who make that place work and to think they have to fly with a kool-aid gulping punk like you. Know i'm glad I not there anymore. I bet you arn't much of a stick either or you wouldn't have to brag about your 4 engine faliures. I have been a freight dog for over a decade. I have seen more crap then you can imagine. But I don't feel I have to prove anything to anyone! I'll be sure to let my buddies know you coming.bombinha said:Hey Koslen an emgine failure is not a big deal I got 4 in my career. In one of them I had only engine, guess what I flew deadstick for about 15 minutes.
Land a whale in the ocean is not a big deal, but explain to your kids why you had a job and from the night to the morning you lost it, and can't by milk for them anymore it is a big deal.
Kalitta is so far the best job I ever had here in US and all problems we have everyone there has. they just don't talk about it.
Do u have any idea how many engine problems this CRJ's have in a day?
Do you know what caused the crash of the pinacle CRJ?
What about the other 4 challenger's (same CRJ just shorter)?
The FAA knows the manufacturer defect but they won't tell.
Unless you fly for your own company Kalitta today probably don't have any competition in terms of work environment.
Also the reason for the guys who failed was diverse. Some decided was not for them, others were scared by the training that is very intense (this is not an entry job neither entry plane). We also had a guy who omited a fail in a checkride that they dismissed. Kalitta work on your weakness for sure but like was said here they will not bring down the training quality. 5 out of 11 in my class aced the written systems test plus on made 98% so is nothing out of the world.
Schedule owns you during your days on but they can't touch you on your days off unless u wanna make some extra cash.
So don't blame them for not being able to meet your girlfriend on the side in somewhere in europe or hono, just because the company had to make some money to pay your salary. You should be smart enough to not promise anything for girlfriends otherwise they become wives.
