High Risk Return for Currency

I can't believe this guy just got baited by an n90 trainee into saying he plays falcon replays at home for his friends and family. I'm dead
That person either washed out of here or they know someone here. People here give me crap for getting a replay made years ago, but they surely didn’t give me crap for working that event. It’s a memory worth keeping and showing non aviation people what we do during thunderstorm season. I’m definitely not ashamed of it and neither would any of you if you had been the one working it. Anyways, any bets on when he certifies? 2021/2022/never?

I guess but I always preferred the term half-wit even though it didn’t catch on... /s

Serious question though... If developmental reported tomorrow, what are you going to train on? There is literally no traffic. You guys surely don’t think you should be certified at high level facilities currently working 20% of a normal workload, right? That’s a recipe for disaster.
The problem with this statement is you’re assuming traffic is going to bounce back to “Normal” at a rapid pace. Have you considered that this is the new Normal? The ALPA along with 5 other airline industry unions are already asking for another $30+ billion bailout to avoid massive furloughs through March 2021 now. The original $60 billion to avoid layoffs until September isn’t enough. Traffic counts aren’t likely to bounce back to pre-COVID levels for years because airlines will come out much smaller on the other side of this. Assuming, of course, The Federal Government doesn’t bail out the industry again.

Assuming COVID doesn’t get significantly worse, I’d think you’ll see daily numbers, at big facilities, around 60-70% of last year’s, by the end of this year. You’re talking about ATL and ORD running DEN and CLT numbers if DEN and CLT were at 100%. The way the federal government is printing money, we might as well eliminate all debt and/or start a new currency.

They may find that you conveniently lost your mojo and off to the NEST to choose a new country club

Well then they may find they can fuck off.
If I'm reading correctly (your post was a little wonky), they might assume we failed on purpose...true or not... and attempt to discipline/fire based on that? Or are you being sarcastic in this whole thing... and suggesting people should let their currency lapse?

First, fuck them for throwing that conditional in there (handled via Article 20 and not NEST). That's basically preemptively declaring anyone who doesn't recertify a scammer. Are they doing this with those people who are FMLAing...???
"We know you just had a baby. Oh, BTW, if you don't come in to recertify, we're not gonna do what we generally do for people."

Also, I've been on E.A longer than I've been combined trained and certified on some positions now. No way in fuck can I perform at those levels after 3 months of blissful but mind-numbing drinking and video games. I'm not at 120 days quite yet, but I have 100% solid grounds to say that a short OTS and calling it a day for me would be jeopardizing the safety of the NAS. Is that what the agency wants me to do though? Is that why they went out of their way to make this absurd statement?

Finally, though I'm sure it had crossed some people's minds to try, it will be all but impossible for a CPC to be unable to recert on COVID traffic. Unless they kept us home until 100% normal (not happening).

I dont find it a suprise that the airlines are asking for bailout money, even if they thought it was going to return to normal in a month or two they would still want free money. I would guess traffic will be back to 85-95% of normal by the end of the year. The average joe will get over any sort of scare and the vacations and traveling will resume, the flu is around the same mortality rate for those under 55(the flu is more deadly for the younger population). The fed and state level governments cant hold off fully opening the economy forever, they need money and tax revenue to operate and JPow cant keep inflating the dollar until we get a vaccine.
