One post "Well even if you do have a FRMS, like as not it will be a box ticking SHAM" got me thinking though.
- At the request of the airlines our government is delaying the implementation of new duty regulations they arrived at through a science based approach and in consultation with the airlines and pilot groups.
-Feed for our mainlines has morphed into multiple carriers, only one of which has a union, and that carrier has lowered the bar in compensation to the level of the others. The others are basically flying to our current ancient and inadequate duty regulations.
-That compensation bar means that these are no longer "career' jobs. That fact and the PMA permutations/ flowthrough seniority schemes have made these jobs almost mandatory underpaid, under protected (represented) stepping stones to the mainlines, where lack of success in obtaining a mainline position is unthinkable.
Following this train of thought I wanted to get an honest discussion going on the ability to book off due to fatigue at these carriers and the effectiveness of FRMS/SMS at these carriers
Edit .... this level of totally unethical attempted intimidation sounds like the kind of thing that would have been pulled by the management of the now defunct Skyward Aviation that turned in their AOC minutes before it was going to be suspended. They never did come up to a level where they were able to re-qualify for AOC issue.
It would also fit into the profile of Skylink and its Ops Mgr the late (as in now dead) Raf Zur.
RigPiggy .... time to make plans to move along. Your Chief Pilot and by extension, your Ops Mgr are beyond redemption. Save yourself.

The new rest/duty regulations got reported because it wasn't fitting in the previous government agenda...(sept 15 2014) "ALPA commends the Canadian government for making the process for modernizing pilot flight- and duty-time rules a priority," said Capt. Dan Adamus, president of ALPA's Canada Board. "The NPA marks a significant step forward in advancing ALPA's goals for combating pilot fatigue and further improving air safety throughout Canada."
Is anyone really active as we speak on the issue?
