Curious Question looking for feedback.

Our Management Company provides 80 hours of vacation time per year saying it is two weeks but then requires pilots to take vacation time on weekends for a total of 56 hours vacation used to get the whole week off. Anyone have thoughts or can provide what their company requires.

Depends what your normal schedule is. If normally M-F with 8 hours of pay each day, then they are taking advantage of you. If you work a schedule such as 7 on 7 off then it would be common to use vacation time to get a day off when your would otherwise be working.
