I wish we used ACARS & CPDLC more domestically. So peaceful. 🤣

Jumpseat Agreements?
 
Does National have any jumpseat agreements with major (passenger) airlines for international jumpseating (in the cabin)?

I know they fly you into position for your assignment. Am asking for leisure travel...

I am not a N8 pilot but a good buddy is and I know he once used DL ATL-MCO... Yes I know that is not Intl... So I am sure they have some agreements not sure with who... Perhaps a N8 driver will chime in...

Current N8 pilot here. We can go international with Atlas, Kalitta and WGA. Pretty sure we can go on UA & DL as well.

What is the interview like? No-stress or like facing the firing squad? Technical?
Since itís now via Microsoft-teams, do you recommend doing it via iPad or iPhone or laptop? Iíve never used this sort of technology, clearly.
necessary to wear pants? (j/k)..

anothermember 11-08-2021 11:50 AM

Can you fog a mirror? Pants optional.

No technical. Microsoft teams. But, be sure it’s working correctly & with adequate Wifii before the interview commences. Some have left a bad impression by not preparing beforehand.

I’d recommend a laptop. I tried it with an iPad beforehand & encountered difficulties with Microsoft Teams.


HD.

What is the phone number for Crew Support?

The Dominican 04-17-2022 11:25 AM

How many credit hours are captains and F/O's seeing per month? I know it varies but more or less!

You can PM as well

Before anyone says anything else I'm getting popcorn.

The Dominican 04-17-2022 01:20 PM

Popcorn wonít be required. Is a simple question as to how many credit hours are the 74 skippers making per month on average.

The Dominican 04-19-2022 09:39 AM

Many thanks to those that responded on PM.

Shocking that an airline which flies internationally would do such a thing in order to comply with other country requirements.

Anyone have any info about the St. Kitts wing strike incident (A330 striking the light pole)? A high school friend was on the flight and she has posted a lot about it on her facebook page. Just a cursory glance at satellite pictures of the airport, it looks like the taxi lanes are set up to be nose in parking on the ramp, but it appears from the videos that the aircraft was taxiing across the ramp to end up parking nose out (towards the taxiway). But you can't tell in the videos if the crew was receiving guidance across the ramp as marshalers are not seen in the screen. My first impression is this is a case of the crew being set up to fail, but don't know what kind of briefings and/or guidance the crew actually received. Any info?

Maybe so. But I am still a little curious about it.

anothermember 05-09-2022 11:58 AM

Last year was similar and I ended up with 4 1/2 months off including Nov and Dec.
What life are you talking about? 4 on 3 off jumpseating to a crashpad?
With supplemental you need to be flexible and understand the game to play it.

Well done, 1000hrs and annual time out. Nice!

*4 on 3 off jumpseating to a crash pad multiple times each month only to rest and worry about loads well before youíre out the door again. Different strokes for different folks our priorities vary but the above battle is not my game either. Itís amazing how little I care about ďwork,Ē yet have fun doing it.
