Default Skywest pilots and uniform policy

Do you have to wear the hat? At all? I ask b/c at ASA they are cracking down on the uniform policy, which includes the hat when the jacket is to be worn (Nov-Feb or Mar, I think). And I've heard rumors that you don't have to have it as part of your uniform.

When I was there, the hat was only required if you wore the trench coat.

Must be a DAL thing coming down on people. Lets just say at Chautauqua I wore my hat the other day for the first time in over 2 years.

I think it is DL... we've been told at Mesaba that DL is watching and that the company will take a "hostage" should it be necessary.

I'm a fo at skyw and I don't own a hat, hope that answers your question.

I have been thinking about getting one and letting the hair grow but you get laughed out of the crew room in slc for wearing a hat, and as I am an FO I CRAVE acceptance among my peers.

It's been mentioned in RGS and by the union. They company shouldn't have to warn us... we should be wearing the uniform properly to begin with.

Minus the backpack of course! Nothing ****es me off more than watching some alleged "professional airline pilot" wearing that big backpack through the terminal. And we wonder why the public and management doesn't take us seriously!

Well no kidding, if your uniform looks like this:

Honestly I think the hat, especially for the reginal pilots that wear the generic uniform factory ones, does more damage to our image around the terminal than does good.

Three years ago, I say a Southwest pilot and a Skywest pilot with hat on. I thought to myself, the Southwest FO just got hired and the Skywest Captain probably just upgraded. It's a rare sight to see a Skywest or Southwest guy in a hat. For the longest time I didn't even know that Southwest had hats
