Re: Track or Radial when ATC references VORs

The problem is in your example clearance. ATC will state whether you are to intercept a radial, course, or inbound track. In my experience it is always a radial when dealing with a VOR and a track when dealing with an NDB. Your clearance would in be: "Intercept the 050 degree radial inbound to the X...

Re: New Bottom Feeder's

Why is SkyCare considered the bottom? I just started with them. New FO jobs are very far and few, and I had a decent amount of hours from pipelines and jumpers so I was direct into the FO position without ground time. Most of the people seem pretty straight forward and I was able to elect which bas...

Re: New Bottom Feeder's

Well rooster. I am retired. But during my career I worked for an airline that closed the doors and left us literally standing on the street....and pension funds gone. Furloughed a couple other times as well. But I never expected anyone higher than me on the seniority scale to step aside, take a red...

Re: Jazz Recalls?

Yes you are. ACPA doesn't need a "long term contract" like Chorus/Jazz does because the flying is by default ours. The fact this even needs to be explained. 🤦‍♂️ By “default ours,” I assume you mean the flying belongs to mainline employees? I’ve never understood that logic, where does it say only a...

I had heard that if you require an ECG that you can't use the attestation. I'm 30 this year so I need an ECG, does that mean I'll have to go in for a full medical like usual?

I did a telemedical. My CAME emailed me a requisition, which I took to the local lab.
