What is a "" Air France Bonin "" ?... anyway.. rant over... Seems like the industry is breeding more Air France Bonins day by day.... sighhh.
Bonin is the pilot that got blamed for the crash of AF447, unable to recover from a stall at cruising altitude. He still had 3000 hours under his belt...
It has been 0 days since I've almost died in an airplane.
Never trust a student with fuel and oil.
Thanks for the information. Can you give a bit of colour regarding how you built those hours and your background (aviation college/university)? Also did you have any internal recommendations or was it a full OTS/blind application to the HR Team.
maybe i'm just old fashioned and believe in a solid reference.
The majors dont give a rat’s patutti about bond jumping, or screwing your previous employer.
They need a pilot. You fit the profile. You’re hired.
Priority one is a family member working for the company already. Hours in the log book place a very distant second...or third , or fourth. Pilots often forget this and think log book time is the key. It isn’t.
Hours, for the most part are a check the box item, although they have some problems lately with pilots not qualifying for upgrade. Something the pilots knew going in. So the 1000 hours makes sense as a new hire can get their ATPL and be upgradeable without having to resort to one of the many “ get to 250PIC” options.
