Purchase the vest, and submit an expense reimbursement form.

If one does not want to pull a de-feathered quarter from their pocket, as an alternative, if one is strapped for the $5.00, is to list themselves with GO FUND ME.

Spirit doesn't want to pay the fines so all of the NK aircraft have a reflective vest onboard and company policy is to wear them during all walkarounds no matter where or when. Nobody I ever talked to minds wearing them, it's considered part of the job no big deal. If NK can afford to put them on all aircraft and train their employees to wear them, I'm pretty sure any other airline can figure it out too.

They do require that pilots procure and carry their own flashlights, but that's because people are far more likely to steal a nice flashlight than a reflective vest.

I wonder what the Venn diagram looks like between the anti vest crowd, and those that pop their shoulder harness during rotation.

I have no clue why this is an issue.

If the plane doesnít have a safety vest and itís required for destination, fill out an ASAP or safety report. A few of those and there will be safety vests popping up in planes (assuming the safety department/committee is good and the FAA rep who oversees ASAPs isnít asleep)

If it isnít required, either donít wear one or bring your own for added safety.

Really that simple.

Never pop your shoulder harness during rotation. It might snag on your safety vest.

Just get it over with.
Match the vest with a new pilot uniform, orange jumpsuit with "Convict" printed on the back and make us pick up FOD while doing the exterior preflight.
