Hold up, let’s not compare this to SCABbing. Nothing compares to being a dirty SCAB.Do you feel the same way about people that cross the picket line?
What you’re missing is that the poeple who can’t fly are weeded out before they ever get to be FOs. New hires are on probation and can be canned at will in new hire training, on IOE, and even on the line their first year. There aren’t a bunch of incompetent copilots flying around just waiting for a captain bid. It doesn’t work like that.As a new pilot working on my CPL right now and looking to go 121, this entire thread has been rather intriguing to say the least.
My question on this point (to anyone not just you), roughly what % of FOs looking to upgrade don't make it through training to get that CA upgrade?
If you do fail that upgrade, how long before you would be given another opportunity?
The reason I ask is because if the pass rate is extremely high, then it does mean you get the upgrade and your point is not really valid. This would imply that people are upgrading that are not as qualified but are getting to do so based solely on seniority rather than ability. On the face of it, in such a safety intensive industry this is absolutely absurd.
