Why do Unions and Pilots fight to never concede on pay?

"Airline pilots have still not yet recovered from pay cuts taken after 9/11. Adjusted for inflation, widebody pilots in the 1990s made roughly 30 dollars more per hour, than widebody pilots in 2020."

In this month’s combined issue, the Feature is dedicated to showcasing the background and medical services provided by MedAire. We aren’t taking too much for granted these days in the area of health, so the timeliness of this piece is notable. Another timely article is supplied by Reini Thijssen in the Fitness column. Don’t Worry! is more than an admonition, it is valuable advice on how to handle the stresses of uncertainty. As we have come to expect and appreciate from Charlie Mattingly in Money, we are provided solid advice about dealing with the uncertainties of the economy in his piece titled, Five Things You Can Do to Prepare for a Bear Market or Recession. (Afterward, it may be helpful to revisit Reini’s Don’t Worry!) Perspectives offers some great advice from Victor Vazquez about continuing to grow your career through professional development. You may be inspired to make the most of any extra downtime you find yourself trying to fill. And, if there weren’t enough beyond our control, there is always the weather! In this month’s Squall Line, Anthony Lorenti gives us more on convective weather and a cringe-worthy incident report to read that is also an opportunity for professional development. With perhaps more downtime than you are accustomed to, we suggest that you read each contribution in this valuable issue. Remember, the articles provided by Aero Crew News are published to make each of us better pilots and crew, better providers, better members of our families, our circles of friends and colleagues, and the greater society. We share with you and invite you to share with others. Always, we welcome your feedback at [email protected].

The crash of United Flight 173 in 1978 changed safety practices throughout the aviation and the healthcare industries. As we approach the 40th anniversary of the accident, KOIN 6 News here in Portland has just done a very good retrospective and update of the event that includes their own archival footage and coverage along with new interviews with survivors and yours truly as author of Crash Course (available on Amazon). The book reveals information about the accident that came out during a rollercoaster legal battle between a three-year-old survivor and United Airlines. Below is the link to the KOIN 6 report. We are also planning a reunion in Portland on Dec. 28. For information, email [email protected].
