Default Essential Pilot Gear


**Essential Pilot Gear** - Above. Empty or Full. CARRY WITH YOU AT ALL TIMES. In the likely event a mask-nazi films you in the airport area Mask-Zones, having one of these in your hand just may very well save your career and pilot record. Anyone know if a Mask violation goes on your PRIA record?

Unreal
so yes the mask nazis are alive and well .Almost as bad as whiskey used to be about the dam hat .

Right???

Weíre struggling to survive right now, really need to land some extra flying, and we have dinguses out here scheming for how to get around the very, very, small thing our mainline partner has asked us to do. There have been multiple announcements. Be a professional and get with the program. This isnít a stupid hat, this is a very specific thing that passengers are going to be ticked off about. Doesnít matter your personal opinion, itís the policy.

Not a good look.

Make an effort. If United wanted me to show up next week wearing Mickey Mouse ears Iíd do it, because theyíre the ones signing the checks and I care about the long term viability of this place. Itís part of the job. You think United is going to toss 550 or -700 flying to a pilot group that canít be bothered to do something as simple as wear a mask in public? They donít send out an email and make two announcements over something that isnít a big deal.
