DID YOU KNOW? CASUALTY ASSISTANT LIAISON (CAL)
What is the Casualty Assistant Liaison Program?
Flight Crew Management has established a program in which a pilot may choose someone to act as a liaison between your family and FedEx in case of a major personal or family event.  Your Casualty Assistant Liaison would act as a point of contact for your family with FedEx and FDX ALPA if the need ever arises. Please click here to read more.

ePOCKET CALENDAR iCAL SECONDARY LINE UPDATES
Secondary Line Upgrade. The company is rolling out the secondary line upgrade software for three bid-packs in April: Los Angeles, Indianapolis, and Hong Kong. This is to work through any issues that may arise for pilots using the new system and correct them before going live for all bid-packs in May. The upgrade can affect all line holders. Please reference FCIF 18-0125 and the CBA for details.
There are now 2 "close" dates for the secondary line in these bidpacks: (1) The first 48 hours and (2) the complete 144 hours. ( 25.E.6.) The first 48 hours is important because certain vacation adjustments can only be accomplished during this period. ( 25.E.6.b.)
If this is something that impacts you and you have previously downloaded the iCal files for the ePocket Calendar, an updated version is now available here listed as *2018 MEC iCal files*.
This message will be repeated when the change goes into effect for all bidpacks in May.

T hanks to your generous donations, we were able to donate $50,000 to the Peyton Manning Children's Hospital in Indianapolis for an airplane-themed room. The dedication and grand opening for the new room will be held on Friday, May 18th. All pilots are invited to attend and spouses and children are welcome. Please plan to meet in the lobby of the hospital (2001 W. 86th Street, Indianapolis) for a reception beginning at 1100. After a couple of very brief presentations during the reception, everyone will proceed to the room for the dedication, ribbon cutting and tour. 
If you have any questions regarding this event, please contact IND Pilots for Kids coordinator Captain Dan Ferracciolo at Dan.Ferracciolo@alpa.org.

IPAD TIP: SECONDARY LINE GENERATOR
As the Secondary Line Generator software rolls out for the crew force over the next couple of months, we wanted to make sure all crew members are aware the reference guide has been uploaded to Content Locker.  You can find the SLG Crew Reference Guide under the Airwatch Content => Reference => Company / HR folder.  This content is an “On Demand” document which means it won’t be available on your iPad until you select it, at which time it will download on your device.  This two-page pdf document should help answer your questions on how to best use the SLG software to create a Secondary Line Request.
