Dumb topic, I admit...

However, I'm just curious what your company calls continuous duty overnights (CDO's). I ran into a guy who used to work at ASA and he talked about flying "naps." I asked him what on earth he was talking about. Took a few minutes to figure out he meant CDO's. I told him where I work we call them "highspeeds." It got me thinking about what the different nicknames are for CDO's in the industry.

So what do your company pilots call them? So far I have heard of:

- Highspeed (Mesaba)
- Nap (ASA?)
- Stand-up overnight (???)

Any others?

(Yes, I am THAT bored tonight.)
 
We called them stand-ups at ACA. Why do you call them highspeeds?

Because you go at "high speed" to the outstation to maximize the little sleep you hope to get!
 
dew sweeper. finish early for that earlybird tee time.
 
We don't do CDO's, but we are constantly doing "Reduced Rest" of less than 8 hours off duty.

What is the normal rest period of a typical standup?
 
"We don't do CDO's, but we are constantly doing "Reduced Rest" of less than 8 hours off duty"


there is no legal reduced rest amount less than 8 hours.

believe it or not but we have a few cdo lines that have "legal" rest of 8 or 9 hours but they are still treated as cdo's/stand ups/high speeds/naps/hell month/etc...
