GA pilot medical rights

Corporate pilot that has a medical issue. Company stopped paying me after holidays and medical days expired.
They are holding my position, I'm wondering if they can just stop paying me and how long do they have to protect my job?
Thanks for any info or insight if you've had this happen to you.

Re: Jumping from airline to corporate?

Chartright is making an effort to make any of their planes that are used for charter have a 3 person crew.
Those crews seem to be 10 on and 5 off, that must improve crews "lifestyle".
Not sure what the pay is like.

Re: New yyz slots..this is gonna hurt!

From last post, no I didn't delayed by slots, but that may be because we ended up flying another leg that had us arrive at 01:30.

It may work as it does in Europe, pax late you might get to travel that day maybe not, so be on time, it will happen once and they will get the msg. I don't see the downside from the pilot side, the charter sales people will have to educate clients and owners will need to make a plan and stick to it...

Re: RMC OC looking for flight training advice.

When I went through those with zero flight time failed 90% of the time. That was the early eighties, those with more than 10 hours of instruction where closer to 50%. It was an extension of the selection process. Shortly there after you needed a PPL to get into pilot training. My understanding is th...

Re: Flying an amphib without a seaplane rating

That is all very nice discussion however every time I read one of these questions my immediate question is, will insurance pay if something is damaged. Transport may wage there finger at you, but if your not covered by insurance you could be out a lot of money and open to being sued.

Re: Negative G Load Question

Can any of the aerobatic guys tell if your allowed to go from either positive to negative or vice versa because of the possible "g LOC"?
I though an airshow official explained that was not allowed. the example was an inverted climb with a pull back onto the showline.

Don't try that unless you've trained to do it.
