Airline Pilots Needed

May 2012, I visited Oklahoma City for a little Decision Making in the A330. A great time was had by all, and the data went to the future of flight.  A330 and 737 Airline Pilots are need once again.

We're invited again and this time in the face of NextGen. 

The FAA is planning a sim study 
In OKC on the days of 
Jan 22-25 and 29- Feb 1.  

They need a different A330 Captain and First Officer for each day of the study.

You will need to Jumpseat or nonrev to OKC the day before.  The hotel will be set up for you at the Wyndham Garden.  The FAA shuttle will pick you up around 0630 the morning of the study.  Show time at FAA security is 0700.  You will be met and escorted to the simulator building.  The task should be completed by noon and you will be free to depart.

You will receive $400.00, plus $99 per diem, hotel reimbursement; and airport parking or cab fees, if necessary.  

Once your date has been established, you will receive detailed information regarding hotel reservations, directions and other logistics.

This, of course, is a non-jeopardy event and your participation is important to future research. 

Please pass this along to any fellow captains you believe would be interested. There are numerous studies planned for next year, so you can be added to the contact list.

Please note, they have a crew committed for Jan 25 at this time.

I would like to participate February 1st, 
but I need a Delta Captain to join me.

 737 Pilots are also need for the 
B-737-800 study for Jan 14-18.
