You're an instructor with the most time on type on the PA34 and most seniority with the company patiently waiting your turn to fly the PA31 which after a year of being promised arrives.
Two instructors junior to you whom you've given the multi ifr training to offer to pay the boss for a block of 20 hours on the Navajo. One winds up washing the bosses car and the other does free work on the bosses house.
Monday morning you're called into the bosses office to be told that you'll be number three on the list to fly charters on the navajo with the chief pilot.
Plus you'll pay for your training ... ie. PPC ... salary afterwards is $45 per charter right seat regardless of day length, but if it passes seven hours dinner will be paid.
What would you do and more importantly what would you say to the fellows you trained who took the job and will wind up sitting next to?
I'm interested, and like a letter to playboy, it isn't me, but someone close.
Simple, Effective, and Rewarding
That should teach them to undermine and degrade what was a perfectly respectable profession.
i do agree with the pimp, except they didn't fill you in on getting your license plate changed. get it personalized. "I FORGOT"
that way when the cops asked what was the lic plate number.......
it just seals the deal to the drunk tank.
i personally wouldn't quit until i had something in my back pocket.
the assholes can get by easily as you see, it's the good guys/gals that need to work hard, just for the oppurtunity to take it sideways.
make it clear to your nice boss that this is unacceptable, and how you feel about the whole situation. it isn't going to do a lot of good, but it may make you feel better, and it might help your job end a lot faster, if quitting was your friends option out.
if not, just bag as much multi time as possible while instructing, find another outfit and give him the same medicine he gave you.
things are moving fast enough that paying to fly a ho isn't going to be in style for long. just enjoy watching the other jerks piss away their money and save yours.
hope it works out for you, or whoever....
The best is to find another job and be VERY VERY creative about how and when you quit.
Be perfectly legal.
Snag the shit out of the Pa34.
Snag the shit out of every airplane you even get close to.
Wait till you have to fly with the companies best customer and when everone is settled in their seat, quit.
Splash mud on the bosses car.
Diddle the other pilots girlfreind.
If that is not to your liking, start the rumor that you diddled the girlfriends.
Post on the bulletin board that the jobs are there for the taking and inflate the wages.
Make sure they all remember your leaving.
But above all, do not be dishonest, destructive or in any other way bring discredit to yourself. They will remember you.
These feelings just don't involve anyone else.

Well than it will take around 100 charters to get the training money back. Within a hundred charter you would have accumulated around....400 hours on the plane. So you would find something else before you finished to get your money back. In another word it is a perfect deal for the boss! The more people going through the better it is...so I think it is better for him if you quit!
He can sell some training to somebody else...
if I were you I would look for something else.
Its time for operators to wake up and realize that if they want guys to stick around they are the ones that are going to have to bend over now.
I suggest smile and nod and take it as a sign they don't want you there. Get the resume out and then give two weeks notice, not a day more or less. Hopefully it will be durring their busy season and cause them to scamble a little.
Good luck man that sucks
Anyone that would lower themselves to that level and screw a fellow employee at the same time deserves what they get. Why not start a new thread and post the names of these idiots and everyone like them for all to see and remember.

Take solace in the absolute truism in this business that those other two obviously haven't considered:
Be carefull who's fingers you stomp on while you're climbing up the ladder of success, because they'll be attached to the same one wearing those boots at your face when you're on the way back down.
