BPF 15th Fund Award

on May 3, 2012 - 8:23am
Blue Pilot Fund Participants, On April 2nd a check for $2968 arrived to a distressed pilot. At the time we felt we handled the “alligator closest to the boat” since he was due back in the flight deck soon. Several months ago, the 190FO simultaneously developed a chronic but not disqualifying injury while seeing his spouse forced to an annual income reduction of $45,000. While we certainly cannot make up for spousal income issues across the Membership, we can understand that it induced the pilot to try to fly as much as possible. He felt he could earn more cutting back on flying

Blue Pilot Fund Participants, The Trustees recently passed an interim amendment to the Charter allowing aid to those pilots on their first 18 months of Long Term Disability while also experiencing an increase in health care costs due to a transition to COBRA insurance premiums. The amount of aid is based on pilot-wide BPF participation levels. That scale and all details of this new program can be seen in the “Amendment 12J” attachment.
