Default PRIA record

I am considering leaving my small 135 company for a better opportunity. I did not have to sign a training contract for this job. I was informed at the interview that they will mark me as 'ineligible for rehire' on my PRIA record if I leave before the end of my verbal commitment to the company.

How will future employers view this? Does anyone have any experience with this sort of notation on their personal record?

PRIA records should only contain information regarding training and drug testing history. I would not worry about it. Provide them with a certified letter with a two week notice minimum of resignation when you decide to go.

I left my first 135 job due to lack of aircraft maintenance and fear of being violated by the FAA who were lurking around our operation daily. I gave the boss two weeks written notice, and he proceeded to scream and yell and inform me that he would note this in my "file" and all of this nonsense...so I left that afternoon!! I have had two flying jobs since, and now am with a company that I plan on retiring with; I have heard nothing about concerns with my PRIA.

For some time now employers have been at risk if they give any sort of a negative job recomendation. Smart employers will do nothing more than confirm employment dates

PRIA aside, do you have any additional info? How long have you worked there, what type of equipment, what type of training did the company pay for?

There are certain things that will raise flags when I'm screening resumes. One of them is a short stay at a company that pays for advanced training (such as a type).

If you agreed verbally to a set period of employment, I would like to think that you would keep your word. But there are certainly a lot of guys that don't... as a result training contracts end up being requested.

Just remember that the industry is a small world- particularly that outside of the airlines. A good friend and experienced pilot once told me some advice that has served me well:

Remember that the toes that you're stomping on today (by burning bridges), might just be attached to the *ss you'll be kissing tomorrow.

Yes, that guy could end up working for Towhook one day so he'd better be careful about messing with him now! (works both ways <G>)

I started training in January. 7.4 hrs total training in a C402. I have flown 270 hrs for them since. I don't want to burn bridges, but I don't want to sell myself short either.

I will be giving at least two weeks notice, and I don't think anyone will take it personally. I love what I do and will most likely be going to a similar operation - except that it offers double my pay within 6 months of hire, health insurance, 3 days off a week, turbine PIC, aircraft to upgrade into, and someone else loads the freight for you. How do I pass that up?
