Flexjet also demands that you answer the phone in those periods after rest, but prior to duty.

If we stay on the current course, I will upgrade in about 2 years. Upgrade time before I was hired was around 5 years. I do think its because of people leaving but, we are getting a buttload of 300's next year (13) as well. You also have to ask yourself why people are leaving. Why would an 8 year captain leave? You can't honestly tell me its because its so bad at the company? It wouldn't take me 8 years to figure that out. We've lost guys to southwest and fedex from what I've been hearing.
CP told us that they were going to hire 48 people this year and I think they have hired around 60. He also said they will hire at least that many next year due to the 55 aircraft we are getting over the next few years.
I agree they need to step up and pay us more or bring the work days down to 181.(ie NJA) I would really like to have a 7/7 schedule as well. A big problem I see is alot of F/O's that go into the 300 are getting alot of job offers because there is no one in the market with a 300 type. They are bailing to exxon etc...
I honestly believe they will step up to the plate next year and give us something. If they don't give us something similar to NJ, I think there will be a big attrition problem.
I do also hope for a better flexjet...but, its not that "bad" right now...
Rest only ends at the beginning of the next assigned duty period.
As far as the FAA is concerned, if you are not in rest, you are counting down against the duty-time limits. If you are required to be contactable, you are not in rest, therefore that time counts as duty.cosmotheassman said:calling you after rest? Since when is that against any rules?
Some people are just content to be miserable...
