How long is the UPS flight training/school? Any information would be appreciated.
About an hour
Do you have a pilot certificate?
Go to training in your board. Number 7 on the main screen. Takes about 5 minutes with a few questions at the end. Happy Flying!!
Make damned sure you fasten your seatbelt.
Telematics, you know?
And NO aileron rolls
But flat-spins are required.
Those things are damn scary.
Never been in one, but what I've seen at air shows and in videos, yeah.
I'm not really a doctor but I play one on TV.
Getting good at x-rays?
If he hangs out with us no doubt lol
We'd have him flyin those planes like a champ in no time LOL!!!
My favorite is when I go for my regular X-rays and they cover my junk with this shield. I always have to tel them not to worry about that. I had that factory shut down 6 years ago.
Right before I retired, they posted bid sheets for pilot jobs in my hub. I signed 3 different sheets, as each type of airplane had their own sheet. I signed up for the Airbus A300-600, the Boeing 757-200PF, and the Boeing 767-300F. Unfortunately, I retired before they filled these jobs. OP, Always check the Job board in your hub. Ya never know.
As a sideline, I came across this little tidbit that I wasn't aware of.
On February 8, 2010 UPS announced the plans to furlough at least 300 pilots in 2010 and 2011, cancelling the agreement reached in 2009 between UPS and the Independent Pilots Association. The remaining pilots not furloughed demonstrated unprecedented unity by not flying overtime while colleagues were laid off. UPS decided to reduce the furlough to 109 pilots. The final pilot furloughed was in August, 2010. UPS decided to recall pilots back to work in December, 2011. The furlough officially ended in May, 2014 when the first pilot furloughed returned to work.
It's a 15 min DIAD training.
@Re-Raise already made that joke
Your with a supervisor who has never flown that route before for about 2-3 days. Then your expected to fly on your own as well as a 30yr veteran.
