No! Per our PWA, the company will assign uncovered flying to the most junior pilot available. You are the determining factor on whether or not you are available. The proper code for a junior assignment refusal is "UFJ." If you recieve or are threatened with a UFW or UOR, let your LEC representative know.
If you feel that the company has broken the terms of our PWA in any way, use our File a Grievance form to submit a Grievance Investigation Report.
We're glad that you want to help out! Check out the committees tab (above) and look through them to see which one would be good fit for you. When you find one (or more!) you want to join, email the committee chairman and they will get you started.
This requirement applies to continuous and uninterrupted United Express flying. If you previously flew in a United Express domicile and then bid out of that base into a non-United Express domicile, your previous time will not count toward the requirements.
Any active pilot is allowed to enroll in the CPP. However, in order to graduate from the program, you will need to bid into a United Express domicile and then fly for 12 consecutive months in that system in order to meet all the requirements for the CPP. If you bid out of a United Express domicile, the clock counting the requirement for 12 months of active flying exclusively for United Express will reset and start over again.
The applicant must pass the Hogan assessment and United Airlines interview, followed by a final Board review. Candidates are usually notified of their interview results.
There will be an interview with United Airlines. It will be the same caliber of interview as any pilot and thorough preparation is highly encouraged. However, CPP pilots do not have to complete a Technical Skills Assessment, as United will instead review your Mesa records.
United is committed to hiring qualified Mesa pilots via the CPP to each new hire class. Mesa CPP pilots will also be invited to start the selection process this fall with some hiring placements yet in 2018.
