ahh gotcha... thanks! I called scheduling yesterday to tell them that I was willing to fly if they needed me and they told me well we can't do that because that would put me over the 6 day limit without an off day... so that's where I got that from.
Omg, Yea.... To be eager and wanting to fly! man I remember those days. It will just take that one mistake of answering that phone on your day off with plans!
See if your as willing in 8-12 months my young grasshopper!!!
Anyway, Congrats on the job! Not a bad place to work, and you'll make more money then most your first year.
well the reason i called is because i haven't flown in 10 days... i've flown once since soe... i have 800 hours and want to build time... there will be a time (not far from now probably) when I will be silencing that ringer, but not now
why? planning on goin somewhere?
lol, building time pretty much means all of squat nowadays, with so many thousands of mainline guys on the street it will be a very, very long time before many of us see anything other than a regional (as far as 121 goes)
well there were only 4 people in my class.. one guy failed systems, the other guy was a previous captain who was coming back from medical leave. i am based at newbern but they are letting me sit in CLT since I live here and the other is in ROA
yea, quite nice if you ask me... they said as long as I call up a few days in advance of when my reserve days start, they can tell me if I can sit in CLT... they said they can get me somewhere just as easier (if not easier) from CLT (since I live there)... fine with me
lucky you, don't get used to it though, that sounds highly irregular for them, but hey enjoy it while you can
one thing, no matter what, no matter what they say/beg/promise, don't EVER, and i mean EVER tell them you'll be at the airport less than an hour from when they called you, even if you can get there, or do get there, don't ever tell them that you can, thats one of the most important contract parts for reserves and they'll try to sweettalk you in to showing up as soon as you can, which from your side will always be "i'll be there in an hour" capise?
sorry, didn't mean to sound like i was comin down on ya, just givin ya some hopefully helpful info
