Guest Bullet Remington Posted March 23, 2010 Report Share Posted March 23, 2010 Let's start a letter writing campaign right here and now to get some duty day limits for engineers! Anyone know who we should be writing to? If we get on this and involve the other online forums in Canada and get everyone online to involve their colleagues, we could get enough momentum to push a change!! Dick Check out CD's post under College of professional Pilots. Also on www.tc.gc.ca "Maintenance and manufacturing"I believe. Transport has two Notice of Proposed Amendments in the works, back in 2004. I believe the numbers were NPA 2004-059 and 2004-060 . Both of these NPA's addressed Engineer fatigue. Both thes NPA's went down the crapper. I really don't see TCCA jumping on th band wagon to restart theses NPAs. BUt a letter writing exercise may get things moving, IF more participation can be garnered. But given the out pouring of support that HEPAC got, I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for it to happen. I don't see duty times ever being imposed upon AME's. Owners won't let that happen. While there are those that admire the work ethic of the mechanics, it has basically become a necessity. Engineers RARELY get minimums. Ig the machine is down for maintenance or for weather, the engineer gets no minimum flighty pay. It is only if the machine is flying . consequent;y, IF the engineer wishes to have a good season, he has to work his/her pahtootie off to maintain the machine and increase his income. That's just a fact of the business. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
