    CCP-C vs FP-C

    Many flight companies will accept CCP-C as an advanced certification however will only offer a stipend or pay incentive for FP-C. They will also reimburse you for FP-C if you take after you are hired.

    Pay for overnight on fixed wings?

    Some companies will pay either a reduced wage or non-OT accruable hours for those situations. In any case you should be receiving some type of compensation however usually not be your full hourly wage. It also can matter if you are off-duty or "on-call" during that time.

    The Gun Thread

    Coronavirus Discussion Thread

    Merely pointing out that the official data from China is likely wildly inaccurate and to use it as an argument is laughable. Population density is a huge factor in viral spread. That is one of the reasons Italy and Spain were hit so hard as is why majorly populated cities in the US are hotspots...
