I’m curious, I’ve looked at some of your schedules and you list hours worked and credits. Is credits the number of hours you were paid for and hours the number of actual hours you worked? Like them paying for the minimum etc?

Joshua,

Your understanding is spot on. Pilots will fly a certain number of hours, but often get pay credits for more hours because of things like incentive pay, trip minimum pay, etc.
