Default Flight Standards

The letter from Billy C this morning is mind-blowing - and not necessarily in the subject matter.

Nothing surprises me here anymore, particularly when one considers the management staff's lack of professionalism. Somebody should ask the tough questions he asks of us. OK, I'll start here: what's an 'epilate'? :-)

I actually know, but from the desk dictionary:

verb (used with object): epilated, epilating.
1. to remove (hair) from the body by means of physical, chemical, or radiological agents; depilate.

So I guess we'll be able to figure out who the Flight Standards guys are, because they will be carrying Nair in their flight bags. :-) Maybe using it on the flight deck, too. Yikes.

Kind of cool he misspelled the name of his boss, too.

Yes, I'm being picky but fair is fair. Communication is not a strong suit of our management. They expect professionalism from us, so lead by example. Clear and concise writing is essential in the business world.

Back to my coffee.

Hey, I'm with you on this. I 100% agree that people who are supposedly professionals should be able to communicate in written correspondence with good grammar and spelling! In addition, they should conduct themselves in a professional manner and speak in a professional manner as well.

This career is a lottery. I've stopped comparing my career movement to others'. Anyone who thinks they "achieved" a legacy job through hard work is delusional. The job simply happened, just as it didn't for many equally qualified others.
I agree with you man... I've met equally qualified pilots that get called immediately after posting their CV making it look like the easiest task in the world nowadays and people who've been waiting for years and not a single call... I also think is a lottery, but just in case a clean record and extracurricular activities in your resume wouldn't hurt.

Reversal of trends for IAH CA’s and FO’s.

The latest Ejet seniority list shows 280 FO’s, down from 292 last month. It also shows 249 CA’s, up from 236 last month. (I know, I know, some of these guys aren’t on the line). After 6 months of FO growth outpacing a loss of FO’s (either due to attrition or upgrades), the FO base of pilots is shrinking. Also, after an eternity of Ejet CA break even or losses, we finally may have some relief coming their way.

November hiring was extremely weak on the Ejet - only 9 new hires. I suspect our last place position in FO pay is drying up our pool of candidates.

Pretty recently, last few days. That’s also less than it had been. Going back down again.

For some reason, the November new hires aren’t there. I added them to my counts from the standing bid.

The bottle next from the July/August new hires should start moving forward.
