Alrighty here is the question. Duty time. What in your opinion is the correct definition? I have a situation I am trying to work out where I can work for our company (non-flying position) on the days where I am not flying because there tends to be a lot of time in between my trips. This would allow me to make some extra money that I really do need. However, some of the upper management, not all, are saying that if I were working this position that if I were called on a pop-up trip, it would count as part of my duty time for the pilot position. Myself I can not find any information in the FAR's that support what they are saying. It would seem to me that since they are completely different positions, duty time has no correlation with the flying position. I would really appreciate some input, and if you have any hard evidence to support this ( ie FARS) that would be even better. Thanks JCR"s!
