Every shop is going to be different. Monday and Wednesdays i can expect to be there till 3. Tuesday and Thursdays we are out of the door at 11 for pool PT. Fridays are called aloha Fridays... Get the idea? Days that we are not at the pool we PT at 10am, lunch around 11:30 back at around 12:30.
In our shop we stand about 2-5 duty days a month with 2-4 B2 a month. What's a B2? You are the back up swimmer and if the guy on duty bags out you are coming in to work.
What do I do when I'm on duty? Watch Duck Dynasty, work out, fly, study and probably watch another episode of DD.
When I'm not on duty and doing day work you can expect me to be going on training flights, maintaining all the life support and survival gear on the plane or sneaking a little DD.
I'm lucky to be in a big shop. Some guys are standing duty 1:3 or deploying for weeks. I get to spend A LOT of time with my family. I've already said it once tonight, it's a great job but its not for everyone .
