Skidz Posted October 3, 2014 Report Share Posted October 3, 2014 Skidz, I don't disagree with you that this will increase costs, it will for sure. But as I hinted above MAYBE it's time we realigned the tariff rates to make them more realistic? Why does our industry seemingly keep trying to line the clients pockets instead of our own? Are client expectations of pilot experience unrealistic? Again, I'm not sure, but we all had to start somewhere.... Everyone would love to start with a 1000 hours and our clients would all like pilots with a minimum of 5000 hours, both both scenarios are totally unrealistic, but again, we collectively keep bowing to pressure. Whose fault is that I wonder? Again, I sure don't have all the answers, but like most things in life, there are at least two sides to every story. Sometimes neither side is 100% correct and we have to compromise.... Not my words Cambox. Just publishing Fred Jones message to all HAC members. I agree HAC is overreacting. My concern is how these new regs will be phased in. If its done in one hit, and overnight, customers used to paying for one crew change every four weeks, and used to getting 14 hour duty days every day end up having to pay for twice as many crew changes and get 60 hours per 7 days of duty, how are they going to react ? Yes, everyone will adapt over time, but we as pilots are going to be the ones bearing the brunt of customer angst when these new measures come into effect... 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
