  1. I think the original point was: How do you receive your ATP? Regional will pay for it, but is that worth the time you’ll waste there to get your number at a major?
  2. Not exactly you would still be taking a huge cut for the year if you have to give up that bonus because hourly at Regional is still low, and the pay while in training is lower.
  3. That’s easy. Match 12 yr O-4 pay (base + basic BAH) and you’re at $104k. If the regionals can do that, it’s a no brainer. I’d speculate that most people would bail if the regionals locked you in for a year by paying for ATP and pay/bonus was in the range of 75% of that O-4 pay number.
  4. Stop over point

    The word ordinarily is key. JTR is not mobility aircrew tailored. Claim where you actually stopped. This is silly.
  5. How much do guard pilots fly?

    All I know is the EC-130J PA Guard guys do definitely deploy regularly to one of the hottest places on earth
  6. Finance Problems

    And always build authorizations with variations authorized checked. You never know when stuff gonna change.
  7. Flight Pay increases

    Forgot about that part. Guess pilot retention is not solved.
  8. 24hr lodging "rule"

    stupid autocorrect. OPSEC
  9. 24hr lodging "rule"

    Nice opec /sarcasm
  10. Flight Pay increases

    Yeah not a chance, 0-3 Pay tops at $6583.50 at the 14 year mark. Even in a high-ish BAH area of $2400 thats still only getting you $107k per year. Granted $28k of your income is non-taxable, but still. The bonus would have to be >$60k and limit deployments to 90 days every other year for me to even consider something like that.
  11. Flight Pay increases

    Ah yes, re-reading the article it does mention it... So I guess in 1999 they upped the 6 year to it's current level. With no changes to the under six, LOL! So we are clear, that's when the AF or DoD changed it. 1989 is when congress upped it to $850 and 2016 they increased to $1000.
  12. Flight Pay increases

    Yeah I'm quoting myself from the ACP thread. Quotes within quotes got stripped so see how it should actually look here: Nobody should be blindsided that this increase is a joke.
