Winter is Coming!!!

Do reserve pilots have to live within a certain distance from their base, like Comair? I was hoping I could commute until I can a hold a seat in CMH...provided I get the job :)

You can commute from Abu Dhabi if you so choose. There is a commuter clause in the contract.

Your requirement is to respond to the call within 20 minutes and to be at the airport within 90.

Commuting seems to be pretty easy. Provided you are offered a job and are assigned the E170, you will not have a problem holding CMH. It is the most junior base on the E170. Crew Planning is having a hard time finding FO's to be based there. Now, Capts and FA's is another story, WAY senior. I'm not sure how CMH E145 base is.

I will have to say the best lines for now seem to be in ORD for Commuting. I have a 1600 show time on Tuesday. With that said, I still bidded and will be based in CMH starting OCT 1.

Good Luck!
