Default FDX, training question

How many hours have to be scheduled, between a trip and a sim? I think it's 12 hours before and after. Just want to make sure I'm looking at the correct section of the contract.

That's it; 12 before and after.

and training pays less than line flying.

Default Fwiw

My last sim event had 12:12 from when we finished in the sim to my show time for a trip. I had a normal line and protected min days off. I also wanted a sim that had banker's hours......learned my lesson from that.

So, yes, you can finish your sim at 2pm local MEM and show at 0212 local!! Difficult to sleep after a sim event, though.

It can work on the flip side, if you arrive at 0030 and want a noon show for a sim event, it will not be allowed because you do not have a 12 hour buffer.
