The 20 days out is what's holding me back. I'm doing 16 out right now and it's beating the crap out of me.

I would be more concerned working for that clown they have as a Chief Pilot than the schedule. The former MIA ASSt. Chief Pilot for UPS.
He was fired by Kalita and UPS. That has to be a record!

I had a short stay on the 757 before taking a recall to ATI, against my better judgement. I was treated well by all the folks at National. The instructors and check airman on the 757 are outstanding.
As for the CP, he is a stand up guy who is not afraid to speak his mind. That will get you fired at lots of places.
