    Wha? Whats Netjets?
    Oh, yeah. Those guys that complain when they don't get enough cocktail sauce with their catering (and leave a trail of popcorn).
    How many companies in 135 have a union? Two? Three? I just don't know for sure since they are so few and far between. Which is why I made the comment I made. I know several guys that were "furloughed" in the 135 world. Which is a cute way of saying Let Go.

    Inverted, you got suspended because the guy after you had a burned out nav light?

    I've never been suspended. Saw it happen a lot to guys for little to no reason.

    Ok, well he specifically referenced netjets. So furloughed in that context does not mean fired. Which was @Inverted 's point that he had no idea what he was talking about. Which is empirically true. I just figured I'd point it out directly.

    Well and to the literal meanings from an employment standpoint of being laid off or furloughed, he has no idea... those mean different things both legally and fundamentally.

    Recently talked with recruiter on phone and learned of a one-way video interview they are doing nowadays.

    Could someone please PM me if they interviewed recently or have some advice what to expect? Thanks!

    Alpine is a totally different company now. New owner. Pay is great with good schedules. They are growing big time. Alpine has been buying planes like crazy and easily staffs them.

    The white zone is for the immediate loading and unloading of passengers only. There is no stopping in the red zone.

    Don't you tell me which zone is for loading, and which zone is for stopping!

    I'm sure quite a few of their older pilots will rest easier now that the risk of injury from loading/unloading freight has been taken out of the equation . . . why did it take so long for UPS feeders to modify this policy is certainly beyond comprehension!

    Now the pilots are going to need to resist the urge to toss boxes to get out quicker or get to the hotel quicker. I especially see this being an issue in ABQ where "loaders" are accustomed to pilots doing the work and South Aero is without a doubt still stacking boxes for them. Not only is it against policy, if a pilot gets hurt, they're on their own. The company will have no obligation to help them out post injury from this point forward.
