Risk verses reward and aviation safety professionals?

“Pay to fly schemes do increase the threat level.”

“You are in deep debt and need to repay the loan. Thus you'll be tempted to fly when you are not fit. You can't afford to lose any income. A real safety issue,…”

So are we trying to argue that any licensed commercial / airline pilot who is

a) not an operator employee
b) without an operator contract
c) bonded
d) in debt
e) P2F, apprentice, work experience, hour building, unpaid intern etc.
f) on a deferred salary scheme
g) other woeful and gruesome arrangement?

are a safety risk or willful and deliberate non-compliers?

I look forward to the toughening up of those rules and regulations that will prohibit ALL of these economic / financial conscript pilots from holding or exercising their commercial licence privileges. So being financially “in hock” is to preclude one from being a commercial pilot? These financial and job insecurity stressors have long existed in the industry; if you can’t stand the heat, then please do us all a favour and get out of the bl##dy cockpit asap and find something else less lethal to crash and burn!

Many of us commenced the risk versus reward assessment well before that first ab initio logged P2F hour on the way to gaining our CPL / ATPL. Having forked out 10, 20, 50 or 100 thousand dollars does not, and nor should it, guarantee a licence, or pilot job or continued employment. A 100, 300, 500 hour on type P2F pilot is no different. As always it comes down to the very boring but essential standards (and supply and demand). If the AOC holder meets and continues to meet the NAA set standard, and if a pilot meets the NAA set standard on licence and type rating issue, on operator selection and entry (and passes the psych tests), and continues to meet the standard then this is what should matter.
