Just a random shower-though question… do you get paid of reserve? This might be a dumb question to the more experienced guys but I’m all serious.
My understanding of being on reserve, is that you are given a schedule of “work” days and off days. Works days being that you must be available to fly if called upon. Say you’re given a schedule for a month, and you where never called. No one was sick, no one canceled etc. Do you still get paid? What if you get called on some days and don’t get called on others?
I understand that pilots get paid by the flight hour, but there aren’t any hours to be paid by if you don’t go flying, right?
I’m assuming you get paid regardless if you get called or not, but of course at a lower rate than if you where flying. Asking because I needed an official answer.
