August ‘19 Schedule


102 hours of pay for 85.5 hours of flying. Not bad. (No. I didn’t just make up how many hours I’ll be paid. My scheduling app doesn’t know how to accurately calculate credits when on reserve. According to this app, I earned 149 credits. I wish!)

Anyway, this is what happens when you bid long call and the company is short on Captains. I earned more flight time this month than I normally earn when PBS awards me a line with my low seniority. This month luckily worked out in my favor.
