What day of the month do you get your first schedule prior to changing it? Thanks

Beck,

The 18th. However, usually a preliminary schedule is posted on the 10th for captains, the 16th for FO’s. Preliminary schedules are for viewing only. Changes can’t be made until the official schedule is posted on the 18th.

Ours posts the 15th of the month prior.

Hi @Tory ,

Looking at this old schedule, when you’re on reserve you’re just waiting in your home to be called to flight?? Do you get paid for that sitting and waiting time even if they don’t call you to flight?

Thanks,

Francisco,

For this particular month, OE reserve was specifically for upgrade training. The company didn’t have enough check airman at the time. It is not the same as short call or long call reserve.

To answer your question, yes. A reserve pilot gets paid a minimum monthly amount, often referred to as minimum guarantee. So, whether a reserve pilot flies or not they are guaranteed the minimum. I believe it was 75 hours at the time.
