Thats funny you'd take the other side of this. My trips aren't in open time. I can tell you this, we will know who they are before they hit the line and everything they do will be scrutinized. This is a dangerous game the company is playing. I agree with beech nut, sling gear play with radios and that's it.

I feel sorry for those last 320 captain upgrades, bottom of the list for a very loooong time! Hopefully those super senior F/O's will start upgrading to the "big", "mainline" airplane...

I think those guys knew they were taking the jump to the junior servitude. If you're commuting to jfk or bos as a middle junior fo, why not commute as a junior capt.? If I wasn't living in base, I would have jumped 3years ago.

You a G7 guy? (because high mins for a g7 guy will probably be different.)



I dunno just speculating.

You do realize a gateway 7 guy will have the same minimum qualifications as any other pilot, right? This isn't a new certificate with new qualification requirements. They will come in as a new hire to QT training, and once they are on line for a few months they will be indistinguishable from anyone else. You guys are making a mountain out of a molehill.

We already hire cape air guys with nearly the same time. They have the same training as gateway 7 pretty much, and they built time in piston twins. Do you refuse to fly with them?

You should work on your ability as a captain if you aren't comfortable flying with a less experienced FO.

I understood the cape air program guys spend at least 3 years as PIC dealing with Maintanence, weather, passengers. That's all after being a CFI.

You can't compare that with a guy with 1000 hours that has done most of his hours in a sim and has never dealt with the real thing other than in training.

[QUOTE]this is one in the line of the latest company CYA's... Get whacked doing walk around while not wearing high vis protection vest... no lawsuit for you... Or it will at the very least make it more difficult for you during your recovery.[QUOTE]

Wearing vests reminds me of my last gig, corporate.
1) Couldn't wear wedding bands to work - might get it caught somewhere and rip meat off the bone. I'm still scratching my head on that one. I'm not a mechanic. Maybe if I pulled the mic switch too hard? Dunno.
2) There was a period that we had to wear safety glasses everytime we went behind the wing because the av mgr saw a pic of a net jets guy with a static wick in his eye.
3) Steel-toed boots were suggested but never implemented because, "we might drop a bag on our foot."
4) We couldn't step over the fueling truck hose during fueling because it was a tripping hazard. Had to go out to the wing and walk around the truck.
5) Couldn't start the APU while fueling. The APU, "Could throw sparks and ignite the fuel truck." RYFKM? Yeah, there's been lots of hull losses worldwide from that happening - on any airframe. NOT!
6) Company mandated that we back into our parking spots. No, seriously. They said that way we could "see" when pulling out of our spots. The argument, "Well at some point we have to back up, so what does it matter which way we back up?" wasn't received well. Guess it made too much sense.

Not sure what made me more sick, the fact that we had these insane rules or the fact that everyone would lapp them up when some cubicle genius came up with this s h i t.
