  1. https://careers.fedex.com/pilot-minimum-qualifications Not general at all. 500 TPIC required. All other requirements a regulatory—ATP, passport, etc. Competitive? I’d get a sponsor to provide a Primary Endorsement (PE). When hiring starts back up sometime in 2020 (we think), the first ones to get a call will most likely have a PE. The hiring landscape has certainly changed almost overnight. I’d expect the cargo outfits to be more selective now. All my opinion; no science there.
  2. http:// https://www.cnbc.com/2020/02/29/coronavirus-prompts-united-airlines-to-offer-pilots-a-month-for-flight-cuts.html Is there even a grain of truth in this article?
  3. Corona virus route cancellations & 737 Max I’d guess? Hope it’s only a short respite. FedEx hasn’t had an Indoc class since Oct; rumormill says we’ll start normal indoc again sometime between Mar-Jun ‘20. There are 8 going to HKG in Mar ‘20...that part is not rumor. But real hiring beyond that? No pilot knows the answer.

  5. All the Sikhs I’ve worked with on international exercises are badass. They are a warrior class. I would be honored to have more of them working directly on the US side. We need a little more warrior, little less snowflake marshmallow as a crew force. Removing a religious barrier to get these guys working with us is a win. And if others get beards down the road, also neat. Not expected tho.

  7. I like the Hitchhiker’s Guide “enough paperwork to impress a Vogon” in the writeup. Bogidope is doing something right!

  9. I’ve been unable to unsee the Death Star on the UAL tails for years. Also their salt/pepper shakers are mini-Death Stars in business class. I saw the black painted UAL Kylo-Ren 737 taking off yesterday in Newark. It was quite fitting.

  11. I’ve read that the Saudi student had been in PCola since 2017. I did half my UPT with the Navy, but not PCola. I know the Navy washback system was a bit less formal than the Air Force way. Still, 2 years in primary? Am I understanding that right? WTF

  13. He quoted UBL. WTF. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-florida-shooting/saudi-suspect-in-u-s-navy-base-attack-linked-to-anti-u-s-twitter-screed-idUSKBN1YB0FK
