Question Have an Update?

On the Airline Profiles portion of APC, I submitted an update to Trans States' profile about a month ago. It was a lengthy update which included our new pay scales, pilots on property, aircraft on property, 401K match, and hiring news. Yet I have seen no change. Why is that?

About a month ago, I submitted an update for US Airways that included the mandatory pilot retirement numbers as published by USAPA. I also have seen no change.

Is there more than one person who handles the updates to the airline profiles? I know of updates that have failed to post entirely, other updates that are over-edited (which has added grammatical, spelling and punctuation errors that were not in the original update), and valid items that are removed from the profile page for no apparent reason.

I realize that keeping up with the updates to the airline profiles on a regular basis is a challenging and thankless job. Is this workload handled by people other than the mods in the forums?

Is help needed from the members in some way that would streamline the update process? I've got some web publishing experience, and I'd be willing to keep the profiles current on the airlines that I have direct experience with.

A couple of years ago, I had an update to the pay scales of my former airline that was too large to post on the airline profile page. I was able to correspond via email with one of the APC co-founders (I think) with the initials J.S. If he (or one of the other APC higher-ups) doesn't show up here, I suppose I could PM his email address to you.

The people who update this will certainly see this thread and there should be some resolve.

I can say though that the two that I know have the ability to update it are working, full time international pilots. I know that their plates are very full at times and I have no idea how many updates they get.

We will get you some answers.

Thanks for the quick response. Sounds good. Like trent890 said, if y'all need a hand, we'd be more than happy to help, at least for our respective carriers. Maybe that's an idea, designate a representative from each carrier to maintain the profile while the Co-Founders maintain oversight.

Thanks for the offers of help, guys. We may very well need it soon, as we are potentially undergoing changes in the publishing platform/process for this data. Please keep us posted of further issues with it. Thanks!

I still want to get the Trans States profile updated as soon as possible, considering the number of pilots who use APC as a source for pay and benefits information. Should I try the update process again or ... ?

Hey all, I'm processing the updates... if you think I've overlooked one for your airline, just email me the update directly at jsteinbeck *at* ipapilot *dot* org. Thanks!
