Missing out

So while trying to arrange my travel arrangement to Houston for the big training, the Chief Pilot tells me that he thinks the training is just for actually airline employees and not open to their spouses. I fired off an email to the person in charge of the training to verify. Sure enough, it's only for employees. It would have been nice if she had mentioned that part when I initially signed up for the training over a month ago. I guess the part of the email where I said "my name is Someday and my husband is XYZ based FO Funkmeister" didn't clue her in that I was not actually an employee. I'm disappointed to say the least.

I KNOW there is some training available out there. A heard talk of it before and mentioned it to me. He just can't be bothered to find out any details about it for me. I'm trying to think of something that he wants me to do and I know is important to him so that I can not bother to find out the details, much to his frustration.

I couldn't agree with you more, on this matter, and what you blogged on the 27th about airline emergency procedures for families. My husband's an FO with 21 yrs under his belt at Continental, and while I've always found the folks in the CP's office to be pleasant, I simply don't know what to expect in the event of an emergency.

Perhaps the Pilot Wives Club could contact ALPA to suggest a family advice column. I for one would be VERY interested in reading that!
