Why I left CH#

Recommended Posts

Ah what the heck......lets go for it. Rumours inuendo scanal and whatever. If you haven''t got anything nice to say...sit next to me. No names though.

I was working for International on the 6/6 rotation in the fall of 96 when I was informed

that as I had accumulated over 300 negative days off I would be expected to do double tours for awhile. They carried this days off owed number through a six month layoff believe or not. Also I was informed that the tours were now going to be 6/4. So I quit and then asked the ops manager of the day how many days off I owed him now. He didn''t appreciate my sense of humour I think. Having said all that for the most part they were OK. Gave me an IFR rating and sent me all over the world for some great adventures. But I just didn,t want to do double tours for the rest of my life.
