April 19 Min Flying, Lots of Fighting!

Another easy month on Reserve and also LOTS of Union work (not just the office days. Constant texts, emails and calls)! Definitely more time consuming than I had anticipated and a huge commitment but also very satisfying.

Fighting? Please explain.

Dorian,

I’m a union pilot rep and I’m from the Bronx. When my pilots have a problem I channel Jimmy Hoffa :wink:

HA! I thought you meant fighting with passengers.

Never! No passengers and I’d be back to making pizzas!

Wait…When there’s a problem you hide under Giants Stadium?!? :joy::joy::joy:

im curious to know do pilots get pay for reserve time…i mean i see that you only flew 10hrs but 75hr paid? is that 75hrs paid at normal rate im not sure if i fully understand sorry for the dumb question.

Yes, pilots get paid a minimum guarantee, usually between 72-75 hours. If they fly more than that, they get paid what they actually fly. The pay should never drop below min guarantee though.

Dante,

What Chris said and I flew 24:10 not 10 but it wouldn’t have mattered. I’m still guaranteed 75.

Adam

I see. Thanks for clarifying. Also does the reserve time add on to your total fly time? Or is it only when your actually flying does ot adds to your tt?

Dante,

Only actual flying counts as flight time.
