If you are gone for the whole 17 days you'll get around 78-80 hours of credit from TAFB.

What you needed to have searched for in this thread is CRT, or Calculated Rig Time.

We earn 1 Hour of pay credit for every 4.95 hours TAFB.

TAFB begins at report time for an operating flight or the beginning of Reserve Duty on Day 1 and runs continuously until released on Day Last. Our day, as of now, begins and ends at 0700 UTC. Day 1 and Day Last are pro rated for fractions of the day you actually worked.

The middle days credit 3.85 hours (24/4.94).

We need to credit, like, 13.2 days to equal MMG.

Split lines with extra day 1's and day last's, training, Award Days, schedules with many days off, early release from reserve duty, and two or more of these issues combined all work against us exceeding MMG. Maybe our Block credit will be high, probably not though.

That is why a 64 hour budget is harped on.

I got a message yesterday that all of Atlas's classes have been filled for the rest of the year, so my phone screen was cancelled. Anyone have any insider info on when things might open up again?

Well, most likely they will have a displacement bid and hopefully not a furlough. My guess things will open up again after all that occurs in a year or two or so.

You are forgetting that attrition has been 5-800/year and will likely increase. With additional wide bodies being added this year (which require more crews then the 73 or 76), I predict we could be hiring again in 6 months or so.

I agree with this. The CEO has actually stated the plan for the company is growth and most of the growth will be on the 777 fleet.

While the 77s are the obvious choice, they are also likely considering more used 747-400s or even some 747-8s. The A350 is also under consideration, although that is likely a little further out. There is a need for more WB freighters in the world market and few companies are pursuing them as aggressively as a AAWW.

Well itís obvious with the 74 production line shut down that in 20 years the last 74 will be phased out and the fleet will consist of 77(X) and maybe Airbus. Likely single pilot by that time. Itís inevitable for cargo.

On a shorter term, there is no Airbus infrastructure in place at AAWH. Part supplies, maintenance training, simulator time, no LCAís nothing.

It will be interesting to see who will fly 747s 50 years from now. Nothing else in the civilian market to replace it. There will be some small niche carrier wirh a bunch that will fly for 100 years.
