What'll Happen The The DC10 Pilots?

Fri Jan 19, 2001 1:37 am

What will happen to all the DC 10 pilots now with all the recent retireing of most of the airplanes? Will they be moved up to bigger jets or down to smaller ones?
Good Day!

Since the DC-10 pilots are probably very high in the seniority chain, they will go to whatever aircraft they want

the more interesting question is what will happen to the flight engineers (3-man cockpit on the dc 10).

At least on United, the FE's were hired as pilots and just fell into that position because of seniority. They will move on to whatever new assignment their seniority number merits. Typically, this would be FO in a 737 or similar plane. They could also move to 727 or 737-200 FE.
