Happy New Year ATPers!
Looking to those of you who have lived the regional and early majors years for advice on how best to already (hoping to be flying regionals 3 years from now) start setting expectations on the home front with regard to time Home v Away.
A big fan of this site, I know low seniority is what it is, that majors aren’t the only option, and this industry can change on a dime.
All of that notwithstanding, my goal is to one day fly for a major airline. So with that in mind, would welcome suggestions on what to be saying and discussing with my (extremely supportive) wife and kiddos.
Is it “don’t plan on me being around weekends and holidays for the first few years”? Or something along those lines?
I’ve dove head long in to the schedule posts to try to better understand this, and realize there are too many variables to say unequivocally what it will look like. Would just love to hear how folks coming out the other side of that first few years characterize their time Home v Away.
Thanks as always!
