This is a cunning scheme devised by the company to circumvent the training ban . This way various Capts who want to go into training will simply say they were coerced to take a training position and simply couldn’t say NO ! . So let’s see how many pass the course and remain in training . If you don’t want to go into training it’s very easy to fail the course or the online training . But I am prepared to say that some will willingly take up the mantle .

First the relaxed policy on DDO's, now this.
One has to wonder - has something changed at the CAD? New boss? New instructions from .Gov?

Having said this, the list of volunteers is probably fairly exhaustive from what I am hearing.


One good thing is being forced to be a trainer....you dont answer your phone.....remember all those TC and STCs bitching about 20 or more roster changes each month..."your a manager now so you answer that phone".....thats over. They grab all they like but now you do your roster and dont **** with my roster....dont answer your phone....your demoted.....woohoo


But hey for all those out there that said the training ban had no effect.......that was utter BS when CK had to resort to making it policy to upgrade to TC/STC. Right there on the video cant do JFO upgrades...same time they telling 777 FO your going into overtime in April...while we park jets and cancel flights.


Well done AOA committee

At a time where all the focus is on rosters and lifestyle. The forcing of training positions will be at the detriment of lifestyle and rosters, especially with the 4 year back log of training requirements that have been hidden behind the smoke screen of "training ban doesn't hurt the company" official statement. If people want these training positions then they can have them. They can then resent the same company that allowed them to loop hole into their crap roster. Oh, and perfect timing of you wanted a base.... 2 year embargo! Good luck getting that long overdue base. Sure you were forced into training!

Just more evidence that confirms if you stay in HK and CX, you WILL regret your entire career at some point. Certainly you will reach a day where you wake up and bitterly wish you had taken the chance to leave when you had the opportunity.

Does anyone need more proof that our TB/CC has been slowly strangling the company? They can press-gang as many people as they want into training (in truth, it will really only be the ones that have indicated to the company they want to train), but it won't make any difference as more and more pilots wake up to the fact that they need to get themselves hired by an airline that is sane, and in a part of the world they can actually afford to raise a family in. There are too many holes in the dike, and no amount of management shenanigans will change the inevitable outcome of this failed and broken airline.

Timing is coincidental with, apparently , trainers receiving an email, more joker leave and a company backed loss of license insurance. Union busting I'd say.

Listen to this and let it sink in, especially if wearing a red lanyard: “Training appointments are at the sole discretion of the
company and suitable pilots will no longer have the right to refuse a training appointment” (funny, I don’t see this statement in 14.8). Since this is absolutely the primary weapon in the pilot arsenal, do we stand together and resist - meaning STRIKE, no doubt individuals will be targeted and forced to make a choice (do they have the Union/pilot body behind them, or are they on their own?). This is the end game. End the Union, end pilot resistance. All the sweet talk - basings, pay talks, Arap, HKPA increase - just drinks to cloud your judgement until back at the flat with your clothes off.

You pruners are such drama queens! They will appoint those already on the list into training. Anyone who is drafted into training against their wishes will be a thorn in the side of the CX training unit. It is folly to think that this will break a union or will solve the CX training problem. Safety is our number one priority, so I can imagine extra fuel and many more go arounds will be the norm!

And the already stretched training resources will be tied up for 6 months training the new trainers. It's not like this is some quick fix. The last thing they will be able to achieve is a joker conversion for awarding base slots let alone any form of expansion, they're struggling to keep up with regulatory checks. Plus, some genius decided we should add training Virgin on the A50 into the mix - must have been a lucrative offer.

Being forced into training is not an improvement in your COS, so it has to be agreed to. One can refuse a training appointment. Those who do accept 'forced' training appointments are company bitches. They must be kicked out of the AOA and treated as lepers.

Please be realistic. Nobody can be FORCED or COERCED into a training position. Any new training Captains who appear on the roster will be people who have already expressed an interest in becoming a Training Captain.
They will be acting under the cloak of legitimacy generated by the so called change as announced by the DFO.
They will be volunteers.

If any of these "forced trainers" are stupid enough to fall for this trick and not read their own cos which clearly states it is voluntary only and C&T is an equivalent to a management position. As COS reads they were hired to only operate company aircraft as per their cos and if they cant figure that out by reading their own contract god help us at the bull**** that they might be trying to "train" the rest of us on.

Lets hold these ban breakers accountable.

Snoop

The truthful answer to this is to say you have lost confidence in management and therefore cannot take up a management position. A list of reasons would be broken contracts, breach of FTL's, the list is endless.

You can only go to the well so often which is what happened in the TB. Of course they were going to figure out a way around it, who wouldn't !! Now no strangle hold as well as no contract and everything company policy. Great job to the loud obnoxious NO people who shot down TA16, you have ruined everyones careers here as well as cost everyone a lot of money and security!!!

Ruined career (supposedly by your colleagues). I suppose the only sensible thing to do then Samsonite is leave. Watch out for that swinging door on the way out.

(oh, and btw, those "loud obnoxious NO people" were the majority of voters in your union, just saying)

In 2016 the NO vote (barely majority) was a bunch of followers listening to some big mouths that will always say NO to any deal. Air Profit, funny handle for someone who considers the careers earrings lost because of people like that as acceptable.. Typical, no common sense
